I've seen some fine contributions in the other posts. It's my sense too that Eyman was amongthe Reverand's party. From what I've read there may have been more than one Iman /Eyman. I believe Abraham went with the party and returned to VA, bringing his family with him the following year.I'm trying to trace a "Christian Iman/Eyman" who must have been born about this time or a bit later. I don't believe he came with Abraham, but that he was a nephew of that Eyman, with a father named Christian (as well), who was a brother of Abraham in VA. If anybody could help me verify any of this, I'd sure be thrilled. Whether my "Christian" was born in VA or IL I'm not sure.
