You are actually missing Orvil, Kenneth, and Ernest on your list of children. ( But you have given me the years that Jane and Mina were born so I thank you! Also, my mom has a funeral card from Rose Crowder's funeral, and on it, it says that her middle name was "Meria", but the other reply to this post states that it was Rose "Sophia". Is there a particular reason, that you know of, for this discrepency?

My pdf attachment comes from "That Man Eastman", vol. 2, p. 224, published in 1954. The author, Charles John Eastman, in the preface states that the information in volume 2 was collected over a ten-year period. From my experience, comparing it with other sources, it has not been 100% accurate. The author sent out mailings asking respondents to fill in a simple form. Since this information was collected in the late 1940's or early 1950's, and since the listing for Orvil Charles Eastman is the most complete, he may have sent in the information for his family.

So I was browsing, and realized I completely forgot about this thread from 3 years ago.

My maternal grandfather was Orvil Charles Eastman. He was completely illiterate, and as my mom puts it, "very hard to understand", but according to her, he did claim that his grandfather was Irish, so it makes sense that he was the one that sent in the information (or at least, someone wrote it down and sent it on his behalf.) He had very limited schooling because of their need for him at the farm. My mother, Ruth Orlene Eastman, was born in 1956, so the form would have been filled out before then. My mom is still alive and well, although my Aunt Esther past away a few years ago (I would have to check on the date.)

Hi Sandra,

I have a tree on, and there are a two matches for Mina Eastman (who would have been my great aunt) from "". Both put her as born Dec 1901, one says she was born Oxford Mills, Ontario, and died in Prince Albert Saskatchewan on Feb 7 1986.
