Eatons of Rev. War for Memorial Day
Posted by: Joe Cochoit Date: May 28, 2001 at 19:47:49
  of 8220

Below is a list of Eaton's who fought in the Revolutionary War with ancestries to immigrants. This list is certainly not complete. I had planned on cross matching all the names to the lists of the Daughters/Sons of the American Revolution. As this is Memorial Day, I thought I would post this preliminary list. The DAR lists can be very useful, in fact, my 2 biggest genealogical breakthroughs are the result of the DAR pedigrees. I never would have discovered my own Eaton ancestry without these lists. The names below have primarily been extracted from Molyneux's History of the Eaton Families The list starts off with four brothers who all fought; farther down you will find Josiah Eaton and 3 of his sons who also fought. Any additions or corrections would be appreciated. Hopefully when the Eaton Family Asso. is up this data could be incorporated into it.
