Stillman Eastman

Stillman Eastman was born in 1812 in New Jersey. His occupation was listed as carpenter in the 1870 U.S. Census for Milan, Erie County, Ohio. Ohio marriage records accessible at Family Search show two marriages for Stillman Eastman. On May 14, 1831, Stillman Eastman married Hannah Webber in Huron County, Ohio. I am guessing that the first Mrs. Eastman must have died young, as on February 1, 1847, Stillman Eastman married secondly Hannah Cherry. In 1870, Stillman and Hannah Eastman were living in Milan with their two sons Henry and George. Stillman Eastman passed away on December 1, 1876. He was buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. Mrs. Hannah (Cherry) Eastman died on August 9, 1901, according to a brief biography in the Firelands Pioneer.
