my dad is george william eastman, his dad was william george eastman, it is my understanding william george eastman could have been an orphan. The family migrated from the north east of country (Vermont?) also remember there were native americans given english names Eastman is difenitly was one of them. I myself belief I have native american blood but can not prove it. Unfortunately the orphan eastman leads to a dead end. Hope this is of some help.
