Stray Eglins!



A. William Eglin

The history of the Town of Bleeker in Fulton County by Beers page 212

" When Bleeker was divided from the Town of Johnston, one of the early residents was William Eglan having settled here about 1800

The author may have obtained this info from the "Gazetteer of the State of New York by J.H. French published in 1860 and on page 316

"among the early settlers was Wm. Eglan"

(the time frame could suggest a brother to John who was born 1768)

B. Thomas Eglin buried in Green Hill Cemetery in the Town of Amsterdam

Thomas was born in the Town of Florida (info via Gail Rathburn)

Died 2/1/1876 age 29 years 8 mos (Born about 1846)

Also Harlon Eglin born Gloversville died 6/5/1874 age 2 mos and buried Green Hill Cemetery

c. John Eglin living in Anderson Township Madison County Indiana and listed in 1860 Census page 238, age 26 family #87 wife Carey ? age 18 born New York no children occ B & S? dealer John living with Thomas Stillwell Family his occ Bienker ? age 30 wife Winnie 3 children .

This family does not fit in with any Eglin family so far researched

D. A special note should be taken of a "Thomas Eglin" Family who appear in the 1850 and 1860 census in Harrison Township Cass County Indiana. While we do not think that family was part of the Eglin Family above the family cannot be completely dismissed at the present time altho the family do not fit in with any nfo so far obtained see reference #24
