The transcript of Major Charles Eastin's obituary was transcribed wrong in the Lexington Ky. newspaper. Also, there is a typo in your posting of this obituary, the date 1853, should be 1865. I have a copy of Major Eastin's obituary as it appeared in the Charleston, Coles Co., Ill. newpaper. I will be glad to send you a copy if you wish. I was unable to paste a copy of it in this reply. I am decended from Major Charles Eastin and his wife, Sarah Swearingen, through his daughter, Eliza, who married David Bates. I have done considerable research on this family.
