EASTON or EASTIN in Green Co., 1810-1840
Posted by: Mona Knight (ID *****8996) Date: July 17, 2006 at 15:19:59
  of 588

I am seeking info on Zachariah EASTON or EASTIN who was born in Green Co., KY, about 1812.

SOURCE:
1850 Project, Green County, Kentucky, Expanded 1850 Census compiled by Betty S. Cravens and Deborah L. Gilpin. On page 8 they list Zachariah K. Easton born 1813 GC and died after 1880 Edmonson Co., KY. This would indicate that Zachariah K. Easton was born in Green County, Kentucky.

In the 1850 Federal census for Green County, Kentucky, enumerated 6 August 1850:
Dwelling 188.
Zackariah K. Easton, 37, farmer, $150, b. Green County, KY
Francis Easton, 37, b. Barren County, KY
Betsy A., Easton, 10, b. Green County
Mary W. Easton, 5, b. Green County
William L. Easton, 3, b. Green County
Lucy D. Easton, 2, b. Green County
James A. Easton, 7 mo., b. Green County

In the 1870 Federal Census for Edmonson County, Kentucky, p. 67, Rocky Hill, enumerated 9 July:

Easton, Z. K., 58, real estate value $4,400, personal property value $2,000, b. KY
Easton, Francis F., 58, wife, b. KY
Easton, Mary W., 24, b. KY
Easton, William, 23, b. KY
Easton, James A., 20, b. KY

It is unknown at this time who the parents of Zachariah Easton may have been. A note to researchers: In the 1840 census for Green County, Kentucky, there is an Obedience Eastin with 1 male under 5, 2 males age 20-30, 1 female 15-20, and 1 female 40-50. She is living near William Keltner. The Keltner family is well known to the Majors families, as Keltner and Majors families lived near one another in Montgomery and Wythe Counties in Virginia at the end of the Revolutionary War.


ANY HELP APPRECIATED TO VALIDATE WHETHER MARY W. EASTIN (EASTON) MARRIED MICHAEL MAJORS.
