    2. Scott D Kendall
    3. Hello Fellow Eastham Researchers. I am trying to find information on the Robert Eastham who has a will in Augusta county, Va in 1825. Does anyone know who his parents were? Were they William Eastham and Frances Bird? There seems to be a lack of documents available for the Eastham family. I would appreciate anyone who is willing to share. Thanks Scott Kendall

    2. Dear Eastham researchers, In my search for my other lines of Russell, Casey, Pulaski Co'.s of KY, I have aquired a lot of Eastham data. I have birth, marriage and death notices of many Eastham of that area. Maybe I can help someone working on their Eastham line and they can help fill in a lot of my blanks. Some of my lines from that area of KY are: Boling, Chapman, Cochran, Compton, Eastham, Ellison, Jacobs, James, Luttrell, Noaks, Phelps, Richards, Roy, Thomas and Wilson. Thank you.

    3. Hi, list members. My ancestor is Susannah EASTMAN (Mrs. John Swan)(1672/3-1772) d/o Philip EASTMAN and (Susanna PUSEY ?). Philip is s/o Roger EASTMAN, immigrant, and Sarah SMITH. Is this Philip EASTMAN the same man who married Mary BARNARD? I have seen two different sets of children for Philip by Mary Barnard. I have also seen two sets of parents for Roger EASTMAN, immigrant (1610/11-1694). I thought his father was John EASTMAN of Romsey who wrote a will 24 Sep 1602 at Wiltshire, England. But I have seen posted his parents as Nicholas EASTMAN and Ann Barbara ROOKE. Can someone clarify this? Thanks. Jan

    3. Good Morning, I have a Richard Eastham born in March 1823. He was the son of Thomas Eastham and Betty Preston. Thomas' grandfather was Richard and he had a brother of the same name. They also had an uncle named Richard, so the name does run in my tree. Do you have any further information that would help pin him down?

    3. I am a recent subscriber to the list and am researching an Eastham family of Preston, Lancashire, England: To the best of my knowledge I have no members of this family located outside the UK. An entry in the 1881 Census (LDS fiche) shows the family residing in Ripon Street - RG11-4234-68-25. My Grandmother is listed as living at 7 Ripon Street along with other members of the family, this is an error, they all lived at 11 Ripion Street with the "Head" of the household, the father, Richard EASTHAM. My grandmother is shown as aged 6, named "Iouen" which is also incorrect. I have cerificates in my possession that provide the following information: Birth 19 Jan 1875 @ 18 Brook Street, name PRISCILLA, f Richard EASTHAM m Elizabeth EASTHAM, formerly MOSS; Marriage 21 May 1904 to James Townly WILDING, Parish Church of Emmanuel, Preston. residence at marriage; Groom 73 Emmanuel Street Bride 79 Adelphi Street. Death 21 Feb 1905 residence at death 80 Adelphi Street informant James Townly WILDING, husband. Their only child, Priscilla Eastham WILDING (my mother) was born 11 days earlier (10 Feb 1905). I would appreciate information from the 1891 and 1901 Censuses, if possible, as well as communication from anyone who might be interested in the families mentioned. Thanks dw

    3. Hi all, RootsWeb has announced that they will be down for planned maintenance beginning at 8 a.m. Pacific Standard Time on Friday, February 23 (4:00 PM GMT/UT on 02/23, 11:00 AM Eastern Standard Time 02/23). The duration of the maintenance is expected to be about 24 hours or so. It is better to BE a good ancestor than to FIND one. Take a descendant to do something fun. Remind yourselves why you picked the persons you did to "be ancestors with." For the younger crowd, maybe even work on the "being ancestors" part <grin>. If that person is no longer with you, remember them as they were at their best. Forgive someone who needs it (everybody does). Telephone a friend that you haven't talked to in ages. Perform random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty. Sleep in. Write a letter-no, the other kind, ink on paper, that can be treasured for years. Take an *ancestor* to do something fun. For most of the suggested activities, please feel free to substitute aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, cousins, unrelated neighbors or friends, or people at the homeless shelter.

    1. [EASTHAM] George Eastham
    2. Concerning the query about George and Presley Chapman Eastham, I am a descendent of George Eastham of Point Pleasant fame and have researched his lineage. First: I believe Presley Chapman Eastham is the son of Lawson and Catherine Mildred Rixey Eastham. My notes have Lawson as the son of Byrd E. and Lucy Chapman, also the parents of Elizabeth that married Absalom Jordan. I think that Byrd is the son of William Eastham and Frances Byrd. William is the eldest son of Col. Robert and Anne Lawson. Presley married Mary Ann Long. Mary Ann is the direct descendent of George Eastham Sr. the Rev. War soldier: George Eastham, Sr. (Feb. 12, 1755 - Oct. 1, 1818) was another son of Col. Robert Eastham and Anne Lawson (I am almost certain of this although this is still not totally confirmed.) George Eastham, Sr. married an unknown woman and had eight children (Robert, George Jr., John Lawson, Elizabeth, Nancy, Sally, William, Mary.) He then married Mary Saunders (Dec. 19, 1769 - June 8, 1842) on April 13, 1805 in Fauquier Co., VA. George Eastham, Sr. and Mary Saunders (she might have been the widow of James Browne.) had three children: Lucinda, Albert Gallatin, Sr. (Dec. 1, 1807 - Feb. 23, 1890) and Saunders (1809 - 1847). Lucinda Eastham married David Long on April 12, 1837. They had two children: Mary Ann (March 22, 1838 - Sept. 1, 1911) and George Saunders Eastham (March 25, 1840 - ?). As stated above, Mary Ann Long married Presley C. Eastham. Their children: George David, Alice Lucinda, and George Long. Please post more about the Bible that you have, especially the family pages recorded within. I'll be happy to send along more information about this line of Easthams if anyone is interested. I believe there is a lot of misleading information published about George Eastham the soldier and it has taken me many years to get a handle on this branch. Esther White

    1. [EASTHAM] Rachel Eastham/Rogers Update
    2. Hello I am looking to update information in the Rogers/Rodgers Family Database here as to the Eastham/Rogers connections thru John and Giles Rogers of the 1600 -1700's. Yep, that area where there is a lot of different information out there and that is why I am posting to the Eastham List, as a Rogers, in hopes that someway we can clear up the record. So, what would you say, if I asked you to post what ever you have to support which ever postion you have on the subject to the list. That way, we can look at both sides together. I just don't want the Rogers/Rodgers Family Database to be putting out information that may not be correct on this issue. Thomas W. Rogers http://www.expage.com/ancestorial

    1. [EASTHAM] George Eastham---soldier in the Rev. War -- Presley C. Eastham
    2. I am looking for information on a George Eastham. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and also fought at the battle of Point Pleasant. According to a special newspaper addition, he was the grandfather of Captain Presley Chapman Eastham (Confederate States of America) from Rappahannock County, Virginia. Captain Presley Chapman Eastman was born in Virginia on April 16, 1835, and he died in Point Pleasant, West Virginia on January 05, 1907. I am looking for this information because Presley's family bible has his father as Lawson Eastham, born May 14, 1808, in Rappahannock County, Virginia. Now, however, I am not sure if this Lawson Eastham is the same Lawson Eastham who is the son of Byrd and Lucy Chapman Eastham who had nine children, being George, Frank, John, braxton, Robert, Lawson, Philip, Nancy, who married William Hand and lived on the Hazel River on the farm adjoining "Glen Farm", and Elizabeth, who married Absalom Jordan (source being the book entitled: My Rappahannock Story Book). The reason that I am not sure is that in a special newspaper publication on the history of Point Pleasant, WV, from February 02, 1905, it states that Presley Chapman Eastham was " a grandson of Geo. Eastham, a soldier of the Revolution, who participated in the Battle Of Point Pleasant (1774). In addition, in Presley's family bible it shows that Presley had two sons named George, one dying in infancy. It is reasonable to assume that his interest in the name George along with this article indicate that a strong connection does exist. But, if Lawson was born in 1808 and his alleged grandfather fought in the Battle of Point Pleasant in 1774, then Lawson would have been born when George was at least in his 50s, which is possible but is it likely? Other information to think about: The connection to the name of Lawson is also important, being that the person I thought in my last e-mail was Presley's grandfather (Byrd Eastham) was the grandson of Col. Robert Eastham and Anne Lawson (source being the book entitled: My Rappahannock Story Book). Maybe George was the grandfather and Byrd was the great grandfather. But since Byrd's father, William Eastham was married to Francis Byrd of Middlesex County, Virginia, in 1753, then the sequence of ages do not work! Probably what I am looking for are other children of William Eastham and Francis Byrd. Did they also have a child named George Eastham? Might he be the one who fought at the battle of Point Pleasant, VA (now WV)? Does anyone have any information which would help? Thanks, Bartow Ned Jones

    1. [EASTHAM] Byrd Eastham, Lawson Eastham, Presley Chapman Eastham & Elizabeth Eastham
    2. I have some information on the Eastham line, including the family bible of Presley C. Eastham (Presley was a captain in the CSA, a State Senator from Mason County, WV, and he ran for Governor but lost the nomination) and his wife Mary Ann Long (married January 26, 1860). Mary Ann Long was the daughter of David Long and Lucinda Eastham. David and Lucinda were married on April 27, 1837. Presley's parents were Lawson Eastham and Catherine Mildred Rixey (born Oct. 23, 1815, in Culpeper, VA). They were married January 14, 1834. I am related to the above Easthams, but more directly related to Byrd Eastham and his wife Lucy Chapman, who were the parents of Lawson Eastham and also, I believe (?), the parents of Elizabeth Eastham, who married Absalom Jordan. CAN ANYONE CONFIRM? I grew up in the same house that Presley C. Eastham lived in after the war. I also was a State Senator and almost ran for Governor. My father, Edward Bartow Jones, was born in said house, was a State Senator, and almost ran for Governor. In addition, my brother, Brereton Chandler Jones, was in the WV House of Delegates before moving to Kentucky where he was elected Governor in 1991. You can find out more about his thoroughbred farm in KY at: http://www.airdriestud.com I would be interested in sharing information with you. Bartow Ned Jones
