I AM VERY INTERESTED in research on John Eggman b.1781 and his father and brothers. All the different lines that I have talked with all believe that we come from the same line. We all went from NJ to Ohio. So it is clear that we were related but needed to tie the lose ends together to see how. I would love any information that you would have on My, great, great, great grandfather John Eggman born 1781. I would love to find who his parents wereJohn later names a son Thomas. We know John b.1810, had 3 sons from Two different wife's. His first wife died at age 26. He had married her when she was 15. He had three children and 5 or six children with his second wife. He moved from NJ to Ohio with his second wife. His son John also relocated to Ohio..
I do not meet many Eggman cousins. So I am always happy to meet one. There are only about 70 Eggman's listed in the USA phone books. I have been able to contact many of them and find out what lines they fix into. I started working on my Eggman Family History soon after I was married when I was 21. I had been married for three months AT THE TIME. I was visiting Washington, DC and went by the National Archives. This started my Interest and I started looking up Eggman's that had fought in the Civil War. My uncle who was a Mormon helped with the work he had already done. I copied everything he had and took it from there. That was in 1983. Soon after that I got a brake and made contact with Some 3rd cousin doing research. I was able to get a hold of what they had. I started an Eggman Reunion in California at the time and ran it for a few years until I moved to Virginia. My wife Lisa home. Lisa and I have 3 sons. Jesse 15, Aaron 13 and Jeremy 9. My Wife made me stop after the three boys. I wanted that girl but it was not to be. I understood though, Because my grandfather Arthur Eggman did not get his girl until after six boys. The Eggman line has been a hard line to research. From NJ they when to Ohio. Then my line went to ILL. After the Civil War, the 3 Eggman boys (Son of John b. 1810) went three ways. My line is through the son Agustus Eggman son of John b.1810 who was son of John born 1781. Agustus's two sons ended up settling in California. I am from that line. I am starting a new line here in Virginia. Rev. Andrew M. Eggman 2927 Mt. Clinton Pike Harrisonburg, Va. 22802 e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org 540-867-5257
