I am still trying to find Robert Eaden. However I believe that Robert may be a relative of a John Eaden, the father of Enoch Eaden b.1856, Staffordshire, England.That family moved from Staffs around 1860 to Hoyland, Yorkshire. They lived in a district named Kitroyds. The surname of Enochs mother was Millward.During my searches, I have found a David Eaden b.13.7.1860. Died 8.2.1946 LA, California, USA.The surname of his mother was Millward. I believe he arrived in the USA 1907.It may be that he knew your Roberts family and thus the William you are looking for. I hope that this information will help you in your research,or give you a lead to work on. I still feel confidant that there is a link. Yours Alf eaden.
