You asked about "DeLand"

DeLand Family Business Posted by Hello

Tom, of DeLand, FL, inquired about my name.....

I am a is a pic of an old family business in NY owned by Harry A. DeLand, later founder of both DeLand, FL & Stetson University located there. The University, originally named for Harry as DeLand University, was renamed to that of one of his close friends and business partners at Harry's request.

My branch of the family is from Illinois (Yes, there is a DeLand, IL also).
