Robert Easton

His birth and death dates are confirmed by his obituary and cemetery records. The David Kerr Stoddard autobiographical sketch mistakenly mentions him as traveling in the 1851 Easton company.

He is traveling with his wife, Mary Miller Easton, their son, Robert, and a daughter, Jeannette Easton, who was the daughter of his deceased wife, Margaret. The "list of arrivals" document indicates that Robert and Mary traveled with only one child, but census records indicate that both Robert Jr. and Jeannette would have been with them during their overland journey.
