Is the John Eakins in the list the same John W. Eakins who married Nancy Albright? If it is - we are related. John W. Eakins and Nancy Albright had a son named Samuel Eakins who married Mary E. Moss. Samuel and Mary had a son named Charles E. Eakins who married Hettie Rosetta Caves. Charles E. Eakins and Hettie had a sone named Ernest Homer Eakins who married Martha Ruth Steen. Ernest and Martha are my grandparents. Ernest and Martha had three children Jerry, Donald and Nancy. Donald Dean Eakins is my father. My family is all located in the state of Iowa - I currently live in Texas.
I am trying to find a link between my family and the painter Thomas Cowperthwait Eakins. Are we related somehow?
This is getting interesting... Thanks for your help.
