Sylvester Earl "Pop" Eakin
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 19, 1895
Jay County
Indiana, USA
Death: Oct. 25, 1951
Clackamas County
Oregon, USA

*Sylvester married Evangeline "Eva" Thornton in 1914 in Wasco County, Oregon.

They had four Children:

James Sylvester Eakin
(1916 - 1973)
Flora Maude Eakin Dunlap
(1917 - 1941)
Ivan Cecil Eakin
(1920 - 1965)
Velma Mae Eakin Newton Schield
(1922 - 1960)

Sylvester died at home of a massive Heart Attack.

*Sylvester and his Wife Evangeline also raised a Niece named Gladys M. Eakin. Gladys died in 1992 in Spokane Washington.

Gladys M. Eakin Lewis

*NOTE: I believe that there is a discrepancy on Sylvester's Headstone. All of his records state that he was born in 1895, including documents in his own handwriting. Therefore, I believe that his Headstone is mismarked, although I realize that this is rare.
