Jesse Eastburn, b1770,Maryland
The best source on early Eastburns I've found is "The Eastburn Family" by Hettie Walton and Eastburn Reeder, both of Bucks Co., Penna (also, the history of Bucks County is a really good resource).
On P.154 of the above Eastburn family book, (published in 1903), the following lineage is laid out: "The Western Branch of the Eastburn Family ... Fourth Generation. Descendants of Jesse Eastburn, son of Thomas Eastburn, son of Robert Eastburn Jr., who was taken prisoner by the Indians in 1756 and escaped with his father in 1757, being then a lad 17 years of age. Jesse Eastburn, son of Thomas Eastburn, born in Maryland, 1770. Married Abigail Phillips of Pennsylvania. They went west to Adams county, Ohio, and thence to Iroquois county, Illinois, in 1830. Nine children.
On page 143 of the same book, the text "Chapter VII. Section I. Second Generation. Descendants of Robert Eastburn, Jr. and Agnes Jones. Robert Eastburn, Jr., tenth child of Robert and Sarah Preston Eastburn, was born in England, 2-7, 1710. He came to Philadelphia with his parents in 1713 when he was three years old. He married Agnes Jones of Germantown at Abington Meetin, 3-23, 1753. Six children."
A further note on Jesse:According to Hermon Fagley (MTVJ11A/Prodigy)(1993?)
