Re: Question Eymans in Ohio? (Tyler Eyman)
Dear Tyler:
Let me do some looking around in old records and correspondence. Nothing appears immediately though several things come to mind. First, Alpha is a pretty uncommon name, and more often female than male, though not always. Interestingly I've spotted a James Iman born about 1866 in Ohio, as was your James L., who was a son of Alpheus, sometimes spelled Alphaus, and sometimes Iman and sometimes Eyman. If I were you, I'd try to track for other Ohio records, perhaps something at county level, or in land deals.

I don't now of many Eymans or Imans from that particular county or township, and unfortunately there were several streams of family members during this period streaming through different parts of Ohio. The "Virginia" part is interesting though. A Jacob Eyman had married a Hannah Peterson, daughter of the founder of Petersburg of what became Virginia (often called 'from Virginia' before separation of the states.)

This Jacob Eyman I'd need to track, but would have been down a line more commonly called Iman. Unfortunately, there was also a Henry Eyman in Rockingham, whose family migrated from that Virginia County into Fairfield of Ohio.

On top of those, I'm afraid we had a Peter Eyman (sometimes Iman) from WV (Virginia in old records) who had a number of children who might have been grandparents. These were around Wayne County and Washington as temporary staring points in Ohio. Any other shred of information about possible dates, locations, wives names, etc. would be really helpful. I'm quite sure that your Eymans are of the same stock, though we need to figure out more details. Care… Steve
