The month year of birth of Elijah is found in the contract of indenture for him in Baltimore in 1792,stating that he had turned 16 "February last".That would place his birth in Feb. 1774.It stated that he was an orphan.At that time,an orphan was someone whose father or both parents were dead. The mother could have been still alive.That gives us a clue to his father.I am descended from his daughter Rebecca Ann Eagon b.1817.Our family has a letter sent to her from her sister Henrietta {b.1819} dated 1892{she did marry Daniel Smith}.The only people it mentions is a Cyrus Eagon currently living in Peoria,Ill., and a reference to a Luney,currently taking care of her elderly blind parents.I believe Luney refers to the widow {named Luna} of the only child of Joseph Eagon Matilda Dix,named Elijah after his grandfather Elijah Eagon.Cyrus was a child of William Eagon,2nd son of Elijah{the elder}.
