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
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.
