An online census reading shows the following: 1850 onlineHendricks Co INWashington Twppg 115b22 Aug 1850 481/488 Eacret, William H26 m farmerIN Mary Ann 20 f IN John D 2 m IN Elizabeth K8/12 f IN
1860--another researcher shows the same family living in Brown Township, Henricks County, Indiana, PO Brownsburg.Apparently this reading shows William H as a farmer b KY--children are: John 12, Elizabeth 11, Margaret J 6, William 4, Mary 2, Henry 3 months.
I am not sure if this is the same family, but there is a W H Eacret living in Clay, Hamilton Co IN in 1880, age 57, farmer IN NJ KY;W H Eacret's wife is listed as Sarah J 56, kh, IN TN IN.Two nieces (surname Wilson) are living with them, along with a Wm Hutton.
Elizabeth K who was 8 months old in 1850 may be the Elizabeth Catherine Eacret who married 1st to Jacob R Cloe ( on 10 June 1869 in Hamilton Co IN), and 2nd to Phillip B. Stitt (b 22 Sept 1842 KY d 27 March 1917 Danville, Vermilion Co IL).Elizabeth(b 14 Oct 1849 in Indiana) died 6 Nov 1919 Danville, Vermilion Co IL.Elizabeth and Phillip are buried at Spring Hill Cemetery, Danville, Vermilion County, Illinois.They had at least 2 Stitt children:Homer Leon b 1880 & Harry A b 1882.
One researcher shows that William H and Mary Ann had a son William Foster Eacret, so he may be the one living with the Davenport family in 1880.
We would like to knowwhat happened to the son John D Eacret and whether others of this family had ties to Vermilion County, IL, area.
We would also like to know if the above William H Eacret is the same one who was in the Mexican War, and if so, what happened to the John D Eacret who served with him?Online info shows the following served from Marion County, Indiana;1st Regt, Indiana Volunteer Infantry, Mexican War, Company H -- ---John D. Eacret Marion County.Mustered in 20 Jun 1846, at New Albany, Indiana, by Colonel Samuel Churchill, mustered out 14 Jun 1847, at New Orleans, Louisiana, by Colonel Samuel Churchill. ---William H. Eacret Marion County.Mustered in 20 Jun 1846, at New Albany, Indiana, by Colonel Samuel Churchill, discharged 8 Sep 1846.
Would appreciate any help.We are looking for more clues on a John D Eacret of Illinois who had ties to the Knickerbocker family.
