A cousin has researched the ECKMAN family thoroughly, assembling census, land records, cemetery records and military pensions to back up most of the above.The family with Mary Ann is a bit of conjecture, however, and is not supported by sources.
I have researched the LIND family.Margaret (Lind) Eckman is my 3rd gr-grandaunt.Margaret’s mother was named Mary and was born 1759 in Shenandoah, VA, married George LIND ca. 1778, and had 10 children.George LIND was b. in Yorkshire, England, and came to the Colonies in 1766.I have background on the LIND side all the way to the present day.My cousin and I would like to find out who Jacob ECKMAN’s parents were.Would be happy to share what we have.
