Subject: RE: Civil War Records for Samuel Eades


I think I mentioned to you before the story about the three brothers coming to Oklahoma. Isaac ended up in Bartlesville, and Samuel supposedly ended up in Arkansas. I can't find any evidence of that. My dad used to tell a story about being a little boy and going to Okla. City from Chandler with his dad. They met a policeman named Eades who said he was Samuel's son, so I know he lived long enough to have offspring.

We went to Rhey's Mill, AR, to look for him, because I saw that name mentioned somewhere. Maybe it was a letter or something. I can't remember. Anyway, we did find a Samuel Eads buried in that area, but he was older than our Sam would have been. I wondered if he might have been an uncle or cousin or something, and maybe that's why our Sam ended up staying in that area after he became too sick to travel on to Oklahoma with the other two brothers.

Anyway, that's all I can tell you about Sam. I think I told you that we had a trial subscription to Footnote.com, and I downloaded Miles' Civil War papers. Now we have a subscription for the libraries. Is that where you got these things? Would you like for me to send you Miles' papers, or do you already have them?

Thanks for all you do. I'm so glad you're diligent and organized enough to make up for my lack thereof.

Samuel Eades was the son of John Thomas Eades & Nancy Ann Durham & grandson of Isaac Durham & Frances "Fanny" Johnston. Also, if Lowry Wilson is correct, great grandson of William Berry "Littleberry" Durham and first unknown wife, and the great great grandson of David Durham & Sina Hammond (unproven as of yet). I also downloaded Miles Anderson Durham's Civil War records. Since he was the brother to Samuel Durham, they have the same lineage.

Y'all let me know if I got all those great greats correct!
There were a couple more Eades who were in the Civil War and were from this area. They were Christopher C. Eades (Pickens District) and George W. Eades (last place of residence was Anderson, SC). I would bet that these two Eades were kin to Samuel and Mile Eades.




Isaac Franklin "Isaac" EADES.



Sarah L. R. "Sarah" EADES.



John H. "John" EADES.



Tyler Ephraim Beauregard "Tyler" EADES.
