I would like to take just a brief moment to welcome you to the EASON family web page. This page is here for all to use and hopefully for all to add to. To have a successful web page takes many volunteers. Please be that volunteer and help make this the best best Family page on the internet.
There are many of you that can trace your EASON descendants back to across the waters. Some even to Ireland. EASON's, are now almost every where you can think of, from Ireland to the USA, from England to Australia. It is hoped that you will share what you find on your particular side of the EASON family with all of us here who are all searching fo the same thing. A common thread.
The big question may have been who was the first EASON to cross that great ocean dividing the New World from the Old Country. I would like to quote from J.B. Bell.
Records show that a merchant in Accomack County, Virginia by the name of John Neale, brought Edward Eason to America as an apprentice on August 22,1637. There are no records of any descendants from this Edward Eason, never-the-less the record of his arrival in America three hundred forty-seven years ago place the Eason family closely connected to the history of this nation. The Eason families were land owners, slave holders, and men of substance according to county records still available in Virginia and South Carolina. We have been here from the beginning and we need to do our best to recognize who those forefathers were.

She's at it again. Here is a wonderful essay by Shirley (Eason) Fairchild on the spirit of loving and the importance of families doing what is right rather than needing to be right. It's about sharing! It's about us as individuals. What a great writer.
