Bob- Joseph W. was son of John and Mary Myra Easterwood. J.W. Easterwood is listed as an heir in John's estate records- he died July 1881. I connect to Easterwood's in a couple ways. The sister of your Joseph was Emma F. Easterwood who married Thomas J. Smith Dec 1880. Thomas was son of James Marion Smith and Susan Eliz. Kirby. Several of them (including Joe's wife Myria) are buried in the Union Methodist Church Cem. in Wellington AL. We may have a couple family connections from those families who migrated from SC to AL.
