Searching for descendants of my great-great-great uncle, John Montgomery Eagleton. He was born 1823 in Crawford Co., IL to James Eagleton and Margaret (Montgomery) Eagleton, married Martha Jane Higgins in 1845, and died 1862 in Crawford Co., IL.
Children include: Margaret Angeline (Eagleton) Purcell (1848-1887), Susan (Eagleton) Kent (1854-1920), and James P. Eagleton (1857-?)
Would like to locate a great-grandchild of John to participate in the Family Finder project at Family Tree DNA (www.ftdna.com
). The test is no more painful than brushing one's teeth. Pre-paid kits are on hand for distribution to carefully selected cousins.
