    1. John1 Eyanson Sr. Born c. 1725 (?), in Dublin?, Ireland and d. after 1765 (?). Immigration: 1742, in Baltimore, MD1. By email of 21 July 2002, Joe Downey relates that his mother(Walburga Eyanson) always said the Eyansons came to America with Lord Baltimore. Such a reference is rather vague since there were several men known as Lord Baltimore, and none appear to have come in 1742 which is said to be John's date of emigration to America.


    It has been said that the name, "Eyanson," is English and was originally spelled "I'anson."

    According to family tradition, John came to America from Dublin, Ireland. Another family source says that he came from "near Dublin," Ireland. Although the name does not sound Irish, a 1988 search of some of the records for Dublin disclosed another Eyanson family, but the relationship to John Eyanson's family is not known.

    We don't yet know the identity of his parents, but the IGI shows that a Jacob Eyanson and his wife, Mary, had a son, John Eyanson, born 22 Aug 1744 at Dublin, St. Peter and St. Kevin. That date is much too late to be this John, but Jacob and his wife, Mary, may be related to him; the name Eyanson appears to be quite unusual at that time and place in Dublin.

    Immigration to America

    After immigrating, John and his family initially settled in Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland. John and his family moved a few miles to the northeast to Cecil County, MD sometime before the birth of their eldest son, John Jr., in January of 1750. They later moved to New Jersey before the American Revolution, settling below Philadelphia near Salem, NJ. One account, by an as yet unidentified source, says that they lived in "an old brick house on Salem Creek, 6 miles northeast of town...The home was built in 1745, and here (John's children) were baptized by Father Farman, a Jesuit from Philadelphia," citing the "Record at St. Joseph's Church, Philadelphia."

    According to "Catholic Trails West, The Founding Catholic Families of Pennsylvania" by Edmund Adams and Barbara Brady O'Keefe, Salem County was a part of the land embraced in Fenwick's Colony which extended from Oldman's Creek to Cohansey Creek. It was the site of the Glass Works of Casper Wistar who, in 1738, sent to Germany for experts in Glassmaking.

    &Mathew and Adam Geiger's home, located near the Wister Glass House, was a very important Catholic Mission Station in New Jersey. Mass was celebrated at Geiger's home as early as 1744 and the Baptism records began there on 15 March 1749. A sketch of the home appears on the cover of the Baptismal records. John Gilmary Shea located the house after an extensive search when he was writing "The Catholic Church in Colonial Days."

          They lived near Salem for a number of years, possibly until September 1762 when their fourth child, their daughter Mary, was born.

    We don't know when John died; it would have been after the 1765 birth of his fifth child, his daughter, Louise. Neither is John's place of death known, but it may have been near Salem, NJ. From the fact that John's son, John Jr., enlisted in 1776 in a New Jersey military unit, one might infer that John Sr., or at least his family, still lived at or near Salem, NJ.

    Information about his family comes from the record of the Rev. Father Farmer S.J., published in the American Historial Society of Philadelphia, Vol. 1, pp. 255, 269, 290, 293.

    He married Elizabeth Premm, circa 1749 (?).

    According to family tradition, Elizabeth was Welsh. It is not clear whether she married John before or after they immigrated to America. Children:

    1. John2 Eyanson Jr., b. 23 Jan 1749/0, in Cecil Co., MD. . . . . . . . . [2]
    2. Esther Eyanson, b. 23 Jan 1749/0, in Cecil Co., MD. . . . . . . . . . . [3]
    3. Sarah Eyanson, b. 7 Apr 1759, in Salem?, NJ2.
    4. Mary Eyanson. Born, 26 Sep 1762, in Salem?, NJ.
    5. Louisa Eyanson. Born, 1 May 1764 3. Sponsors at Louisa's baptism were Thomas and Esther Eyanson. Thomas could be Louise's father's brother, father, or cousin. Additional investigation is needed to determine the relationship. Esther Eyanson might be Thomas' wife, or she might be a sister to Louisa's father; additional investigation is needed.
    6. Simon Peter Eyanson. Born, 18 Oct 1767. Sponsors at Simon's baptism were Patrick Magill and Esther Eyanson. She could be the same Esther Eyanson who sponsored Louisa's baptism.

    2. John2 Eyanson Jr. (John Sr., 1). Born, 23 Jan 1749/0, in Cecil Co., MD4. Died, 31 May 1831, in Lebanon, Lebanon, PA, age 81 years, 4 months and 8 days. Death(2): 5 May 1831 5.

    John's parents immigrated some time before 1749 and settled initially in Cecil Co., MD. The family moved to NJ before the American Revolution, settling below Philadelphia, near Salem, NJ. From their home, an old brick house on Salem Creek, 6 miles northeast of town, the family attended church services. The home was built in 1745. It is said to be here that his sisters and brothers were baptised by Father Farman, a Jesuit from Philadelphia.

    A grandson wrote that, as a young man, John worked for an uncle who owned a nail factory near Salem, NJ.       Who is this uncle? A Thomas and Esther Eyanson were sponsors at his sister Louise's 1765 baptism. Thomas might be the uncle, brother of John Eyanson Sr., for whom John Jr. worked. If it was a brother of Elizabeth Premm, we don't yet have a clue as to what his name is.

    The manufacturing of nails in the colonies being against the law, the factory was suppressed and the usiness disbanded.

    When the American Revolution occurred in 1776, and at the age of 26, John enlisted in the Continental Line of New Jersey, 3rd Battallion, first established under Colonel Dayton, 2nd Company under Captain Thomas Patterson. An enlistment in a NJ military unit suggests that John Jr. and his parents and siblings might still have been living at or near Salem, NJ.

    Four companies of men were stationed at Staten Island, NY and another four at Amboy, NJ. They were joined 28 Apr 1776 at Elizabethtown and left for NY the following day. On 2 May 1776, the Battallion was reviewed by the Quarter-Master General, and on 3 May 1776, with the 1st Battallion, sailed by ship to Albany. There, Colonel Dayton reported to Brig. Gen. John Sullivan of NH. During the remainder of 1776, they were stationed at Johnstown, German Flats, Ft. Dayton, Fort Schuyler, Ticonderoga, and Mt. Independence. They were chiefly engaged in preventing incursions of the Indians.

    John was stationed at Ft. Ticonderoga and was on guard the day the Declaration of Independence was received at the Fort. Hearing a great cheering, he soon learned from a Corporal who, besides bearing the news, also bore a canteen of liquor. Together, they drank to the success of the new nation.

    John Truax, of Capt. Thomas Patterson's 2nd Company, 3rd Batillion, 1st Establishment, was John Eyanson's mess mate in the New Jersey Continentals. There seems to be no records of the privates of Capt. Patterson's Company.

    The Battallion left Albany on 7 Mar 1777 and was discharged at Morristown on 23 Mar 1777. After discharge from the Continental Army, John returned to Salem County, NJ moving later to nearby Chester, PA near Philadelphia. At Chester he enlisted in Capt. William Price's Company, PA Militia, 13 Jun 1777 as a Private under the name of "John Ireson." (Source: PA Archives, Vol. 14, pg. 80)

    John was at the Battle of Brandywine and under arms for 13 hours in the famous Apple Orchard with nothing to eat, but came out without a wound. He served the balance of the war in PA near Philadelphia.

    John lived at Chester, PA at least until 1784 when his third child, John, was born. In 1821 he filed an application with the Open Court of Common Pleas, Chester County, PA for a pension. In it, he related that:

      . . . he was then living in the township of Brackrack in the county of Berks, PA His application related that he was "in reduced circumstances and stands in need of the assistance of this County for support..."

    The petition also added that:

      "I am by occupation a labourer, but of reason of old age and infirmity am not able to do any work as I am now a (illeg.) cripple and have been for the last 6 years. I have a wife who is about sixty years old who is also infirm and debilitated (illeg.). I have no family with me but my wife. I have several children none of whom are able to render me any support. I have been since last April (1820) supported as a pauper of the township County in which I live as is also my wife, neither being able to support ourselves. I continued to support myself as long as I had the strength and means, but when both had failed, I was certified to become charitable on the township."

    He died in 1831 at Lebanon, PA, about 70 miles WNW of Philadelphia, at the age of 81 years, 4 mos. and 8 days.

    He married Anna Eddy, circa 1779. Anna was b. Sep 1757, in East Natmeal Twp., formerly part of Vincent Twp., Chester, PA. Died, Dec 1836, in Lebanon, PA, age 79 years and 3 months.. Christened, 1 Sep 1783 6. Burial in Cath. Cem., Lebanon, PA7. Anna was the daughter of Joseph Eddy and (Mary Philips?), A grandson of Anna wore that Joseph Eddy "came from a manufacturing town in England called France, and was noted in Chester County for his honesty.

    Apparently Anna was born a Baptist. She converted to Catholicism at the age of 26 and approximately four years after her marriage and after the birth of her first two children, Mary and William. Anna was baptized 1 Sep 1783 at Pikeland, Chester Co., PA. (Source: Reg., St. Joseph Ch., Philadelphia, pub. Am. Cath. Hist. Coc., V. 4, pg. 52)

    Anna had eleven children and over a period of 24 years from 1780 to 1804. Anna's youngest child, her son Thomas, was born in 1804 when Anna was 47 years old.

    Anna's husband, John Eyanson Jr., died in 1831 at Lebanon, PA. Anna was 74 at that time, and it might be reasonable to assume that she thereafter went to live with one of her children's families. Since she died at Lebanon in 1836, it might also be reasonable to assume that at least one we do not presently know.

    Anna died at Lebanon, PA in 1836 at the age of 79 years of age. Children:

       4       i.  Mary3 Eyanson.
              ii.  William Eyanson. Born, 30 Nov 1782, in Pikeland, Chester,
                   PA8. Died, circa 1798. The PA IGI has an entry for a
                   William Eyenson, son of John Eyenson and Hannah, christened
                   15 Jun 1783 at St. Joseph's Church in Philadelphia. It is
                   probably the same person.
       5     iii.  John B. Eyanson.
       6      iv.  David Eyanson.
       7       v.  Jeremiah Eyanson.
       8      vi.  George Eyanson Jr.
       9     vii.  Joseph Eyanson.
      10    viii.  Sarah Eyanson.
      11      ix.  Anna Eyanson.
      12       x.  Samuel A. Eyanson.
      13      xi.  Thomas Eyanson.

    Esther2 Eyanson (John Sr., 1). Born, 23 Jan 1749/0, in Cecil Co., MD.

    She married John Doyle, 3 Nov 1776. Children:

    1. Joseph3 Doyle. Born, 3 Dec 1777. Baptism: 4 May 1777.
    2. JamesDoyle. Born, 2 May 17799. Baptism: 7 May 1779.

    4. Mary Eyanson (John Jr., 2), b. 3 Jun 1780, in Pikeland, Chester Co., and d. 1798. Baptism: 29 Jul 1780, in Pikeland, Chester, PA. According to Am. Hist. Soc., Vol. 2, pg. 273, Mary had no children.

    She married William Thorndyke. Born,circa 1780 (?). No children.

    5. John B. Eyanson (John Jr., 2), b. 23 Nov 1784, in Pikeland, Chester, PA. Baptism: 29 May 1785. The IGI for PA lists a John Eyenson born to John Eyenson and Ann who was christened 29 May 1785 in Philadelphia at St. Josephs. This is quite probably the same John Eyanson.

    He married Unknown, circa 1824. Children:

    1. Elizabeth Eyanson. Born, 27 Dec 1825 11.
    2. John Eyanson. Born, 15 Mar 1829 11.

    6. David Eyanson (John Jr., 2). Born, 13 Feb 178611. Birth(2): 23 Feb

    He married Unknown. Children:

               i.  (names unknown) 4.

    7. Jeremiah Eyanson (John Jr., 2). Born, 1788. Died, after 1816 (?). It is said that Jeremiah died young, but he might have m. Unknown c. 1813 in Pittsburg, Alleghany Co., PA and had:

    1. Joseph4 Eyanson. Born, circa 1814 (?).
    2. James Eyanson. Born, circa 1816 (?).

    8. George Eyanson (John Jr., 2). Born, 1791, in PA. Died, 12 Jul 1841, in Decatur, Adams, IN. Burial in Decatur, Adams, IN. George Eyanson was the sixth of the eleven children of John Eyanson Jr. and his wife, Anna Eddy. We don't yet know where George was born, other than that it was apparently in Pennsylvania. His parents lived in Pikesland, Chester Co., PA at least until 1784 when their third child, John, was born. Unfortunately we do not presently know the birth places of the fourth and fifth children so we are unable to trace the family's movement.

    Neither do we know his place of marriage in 1813 when he was 22 years old, except that his eldest son, Joseph, is said to have been born in 1814 in PA; from that it might be inferred that George was married in PA. We can infer that some time before 1818 George and his family moved to Des Moines, Polk, Iowa where his daughter, Eliza, was born in 1818.

    Sometime between 1818 and 1841 he moved to Decatur, Adams Co., IN, where he died in 1841 at the age of only 51 years.

    He married Barbara Eckenrode, daughter of Henry Eckroth and Mary Elizabeth Schimpfessel, 23 Aug 1813, in Bucks, PA. Born, 25 Mar 1792, in PA 12. Died, 12 Jul 184113. Death(2): 4 Sep 1854 14.

    The Eckenrode Family Book, pub. 1988, by Wm. E. Kirkpatrick contains the following information about Barbara:

    Barbara4 Eckenrod (sic) (Henry3, Peter2, John1) married before a lay judge, George Eyan/Eyerson/Eirenzen. On 10 October 1813 George, son of John and Anna Eyanson and Barbara, daughter of Henry and Elizabeth Eckenrod (sic) renewed their consent before John Allgayer and Elizabeth Riltner (GR, page 211; Records, Volume II, page 203). To be validly married in the Catholic Church Barbara had to have been at least 14 years old. Therefore she was born not later than 9 October 1799.

    A 1945 letter to the Gen. Soc. of Utah cites a family Bible in the possession of Mrs. Clara Hughes of Ft. Wayne, IN, then deceased, as recording that Barbare died 4 Feb 1854 at the age of 62 years. That date corresponds with the 1792 birth date given, but is at odds with the other 1841 death date for which no reference is cited on the Group Sheet on which it appears. Children:

      14       i.  Joseph L(ewis?).4 Eyanson.
                ii.  Mary Anna Eyanson. Born, 23 Apr 181715.
      15     iii.  Eliza Eyanson.

    9. Joseph Eyanson (John Jr., 2). Born, 28 Feb 1794.

    He m. Mary Catharine "Polly" Eckenrode c. 1819 16. Born, 1 Mar 1789, in Goshenhoppen, Bally, PA17. Baptism: 10 May 1789, in Goshenhoppen, Bally, PA. Polly is a sister to Barbara Eckenrode who married George Eyanson Children:

      16       i.  Mary Elizabeth4 Eyanson.
      17      ii.  Anna Eyanson.
      18     iii.  Mary Eyanson.
      19      iv.  Samuel Eyanson.
      20       v.  Salome/Sarah Eyanson.

    10. Sarah3 Eyanson (John Jr., 2). Born, 1796. Died, 4 Sep 1866. Burial in Cath. Cem., 6th St., Burlington, IA.

    She married, first, John A. Tolland 18. Born, circa 1796 (?). Died, 1 Sep 1866 (?). Burial in N. 6th St Cem. The only date on John's tombstone is Sept. 1, 1866; that apparently is when he died. John was a Colonel and killed in the Civil War. He was shot from his horse while passing through Wythesville, VA with his Regiment in 1864. He is buried at the N. 6th St. Cem. Children:

      21       i.  Mary A.4 Tolland.
              ii.  Jalm/John T. Tolland19. Born, circa 1821 (?)20.
      22     iii.  Rebecca Tolland.

          She married, second, Steve Clement.

    11. Anna Eyanson (John Jr., 2) 21, Born, 8 Aug 1798, in E. Nantmeal Twp., Chester, PA22. Died, 8 Jan 1876. The PA IGI lists an Anna Eyanson baptised 1 Sep 1783 in St. Joseph's Church in Philadelphia to a John Eyenson. Because of the date discrepency, that Anna may not be the same person, but might be a previously unidentified child who may have died in childhood. Two lines further down in the IGI is John Eyenson who is probably Anna's brother; he was christened at St. Joseph's Church in Philadelphia.

    DAR Lineage Book, PG. 299, lists #118923, a Clara Wales McMahon as a descendant of Anna's. Another descendant is a Mrs. Anna Leach Stevens Crocker, born in Snohomish, WA. \

    Anna and her husband lived near Lancaster, OH. In 1850, after her husband had died, Anna packed her belongings into a large walnut bureau and traveled down the Ohio river to Cairo, IL, and then up the Mississippi River to Burlington. She brought her seven youngest children with her. Several of the older children had married and remained in Lancaster, OH.

    Perhaps she went to Burlington at the suggestion of her older brother, Sanuel Eyanson, who was living there at the time. Samuel and his wife had no children, and since there was an age difference of only two years between Samuel and Anna, they may have been especially close.

    Anna lived in a log cabin at the corner of 3rd and High streets where the north wing of Burlington Hospital now stands. For some years this spot was filled by a small bungalow owned by the Goodspeeds. When it was razed to make room for the hospital, it was found that a part of the original log cabin was still within the structure of the Goodspeed bungalow. There were 2 fireplaces, one at each end of the cabin. It was in that log cabin that Anna raised her family, her means of support a bording house, It was in that home that Katherine Helen Wetzler married Samuel Shannon Wales. It is located at 6th and Washington at the foot of Snake Alley.

    Although some of the Eyanson children had been baptised by a Jesuit priest in the earlier days, it seems that at this time they were not Catholic. Thomas Wales, a grandson of Anna's, said their conversion perhaps came about in this way: There was no parish house for the priest at St. Paul's Church , so he boarded at the Wetzler home. They had been a family who had "shopped around" for their religion, but had never been quite satisfied with any faith they had been identified with. During the time the priest stayed with them, they became converts to Catholicism.

    She married Daniel Wetzler, 1817, in PA. Born, 179823. Died, 1839, in PA. It is said that the Wetzlers were of Pennsylvania Dutch extraction, and were among the early settlers of Pennsylvania. (Comment: the name sounds German; perhaps the source meant "Deutch" or German.) Family tradition relates that during a noon wrestling match, Daniel was thrown by his opponent, struck a tree stump, and died from a broken neck. Children:

      23       i.  Elizabeth4 Wetzler.
      24      ii.  Mary C. Wetzler.
             iii.  Matthias Wetzler. Born, 1821. Died, 1839.

    Polk, IA. Died, circa 1873 (?), in MO. Baptism in St. Peter's Ch.,
    Reading, PA32. Burial in Cath. Cem., Decatur, Adams, IN.
          Eliza was the youngest of the three children of George Eyanson
    (John1, John2) and his wife, Barbara Eckenrode. She is also a sister to
    Joseph Eyanson who married Mary Catharine Eckenrode.
          There is some confusion where Eliza was born. Church records show
    her baptism at St. Peter's Cath. Church in Reading, PA. That record is
    probably should prevail over a Group Sheet showing her birth at Des
    Moines, Polk, IA which does not cite specific documentation. Of course,
    her family might have moved between her birth and baptism, or she might
    have been born other than at her family's city of residence.
          Eliza married her first husband, John Roland Prentice in 1837 when
    she was 19. She and John had four children, Joseph, Elizabeth, George and
    Margaret over the next seven years. Sometime after the birth of her fourth
    child, John abandoned Eliza and the children. John subsequently remarried
    twice more without the benefit of divorce and had additional children by
    each of his two later wives. Additional information about the descendants
    of the four children may be found in the book,
    "Ancestors and Descendants of Valentine Prentice" by L. J. Dewald,
    a descendant of Eliza and John.
    His mailing address is 9190 Oak Leaf Way, Granite Bay, CA 95746; also
          Eliza died in Missouri at the home of a daughter about 1873 at the
    age of approximately 55. Her remains were returned to Decatur, IN for

    John Paul was an emigrant from Saxony, Germany. He Americanized his name
    from Schmidt to Smith. He had been hired by Eliza's son to work on the
