My grandfathers name was james eaker born in the early 1900's possibly in paducah ky.He had brothers named robert, lee @ a sister mary.He marriedvirginia sherril in paducah ky.they moved to chicago ill and had 5 children.I belive my great aunt and uncles also moved to chicago at the same time.Mary never married or had children and lee only had one son by wife ida. I have very little info other than my branch of the family is still very close to one another and I may be able to accumulate alot of additional info from my aunts.I am beginning this quest as a gift this christmas to our family.there are 25 first cousins in my branch alone. the second and third cousins are in the double digits also.Are we related to peter eaker from the shoe cobblers kin?I have an 18 month old daughter and have not been able to get to the library yet.If the waiting list is still available for the book I would like to be placed on it.If any one in my branch sees this dont spoil the surprise for anyone! just write me back (it's mary kay). my address is firstname.lastname@example.org forward to the search! thanks!
