I realize yours is an old post but I ran across it and thought I would answer. I don't know anything about the folks you are seeking but do have information on Elmer Dudley Eagan. I am not sure that you want any info. on him or not but for what its worth he came out to Oregon and at one point was married to my mother. He was my step dad for only a few years but he was very kind to me. I do have pictures of him and I remember him well. We knew him as Dan. I knew he had family I thought in Iowa but am not sure.
