I need some help with info. on Robert Eastwood. I have seen several times on this message board that he is descended from Richard Eastwood, with the two generations between them unknown. How are we sure he is descended from Richard? I have found other trees showing Richard's children as Richard, Thomas, John, Judith. It has to be one of these. Where do you suppose information was found on the the descendants of Thomas and John and subsequently a couple of their children and not all of them. This is a big mystery to me.Any help would be grateful. Also the other mystery is Jacob's dad -- John or Abner. Pat's explanation makes sense but I have John as dad with no real back up proof. I looked thru family records but have not found any going back that far, so no real proof. Does anyone have anything to say about this mystery?
