If I might ask what is your source for the father of James Eaken
1808? I have his father as being James Eaken who died in about 1818 in
Centre County! And it is true that his mother was Hannah, actually
Davis, the daughter of Joseph Davis of New Jersey, who served in the
Revolutionary War. Hannah had two sibling, Cornelius and Joseph!
also married George Eaken and although I have no proof, he was probably a
brother of James Eaken. There were other siblings of James, born in about
1780. Sally, Jane, Margaret, Robert, Walter, Andrew and George! There was
about eight children of James Eaken and Hannah Davis. When James died, the
children were split up and taken care of, I guess, until Hannah got remarried
again. George and Hannah were married about 1823 and they had one daughter,
Lucinda born 1824. There is more. Hannah and George moved to Doylestown,
Wayne County, Ohio. Her other children were: Margaret, John, Jane,
Christina, James, Mary, Catherine, Hannah, and Andrew!
Thanks for all the information.
My Great Grandfather was James Eaken. This would be a third James Eaken the
Grandson of James and Hannah.
It occurs to me, though, that I don't have any real proof that my Great
Grandfather was the son of James Eaken II. Do you have any information
on the children of James Eaken II?
My Great Grandfather was born Apr 1850 in Ohio (from census records) and
married to Mary Trumbell.

So you are a descendent of this James Eaken, son of James Eaken and Hannah
Davis?? If that is the case, then James and Hannah (Davis) Eaken had a
daughter, Mary, Born 1810 who married David Hallowell, which the name
spelling changed to Halliwill. David Hallowell and Mary Eaken are my great
great great grandparents. Their son, Ezeckiel, born 1842 married Lydia
Barnard and their daughter Miami Frances Hallowell, married John Henry
Reinhard. My grandfather, Clarence Reinhard, born 1886, was their son! I
got the sons and daughters of James Eaken and Hannah Davis from the church
records of Centre County, Pennsylvania which is where the Eaken family was
before coming to Ohio. It is said that James and George Eaken"s father was
Andrew Eaken who was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. And also I have
found where John Eaken was the father. I do know that in the obituary of
Margaret Eaken Mc Elhennie born 1794, it says that the father was the
youngest of 12 sons. As to when the Eakens came to America is still not
