Birth: Nov. 21, 1798, USA
Death: Jul. 14, 1870
New Bedford
Bureau County

Jacob Eastlick was the youngest son of Alexander Eastlick and Elizabeth (Britten) Eastlick. He was born while the couple lived in Upper Smithfield, Pennsylvania (in what was Northampton then Wayne County). Shortly after that, the family moved to Reading, Steuben County, New York (Reading is now in Schuyler County).

It is in Steuben County that young Jacob grew to manhood and married Hannah Stryker. Their first three children were born there (Alexander, Edward, Mary Ann).

After the death of Jacob's father in 1821, his widowed mother sold their land (1822) in New York and moved with her sons John and Jacob and their families to Trumbull County, Ohio. John and Jacob Eastlick were listed on tax records for Trumbull County, Ohio from 1823 through 1834. Jacob and Hannah's next five children were born in Trumbull County (Lorinda, Sylvester, Cordelia, Helen, Mahlon).

The next Eastlick child, Lafayette, was born in Crawford County, Pennsylvania, over the border from Trumbull County, where Jacob and Hannah owned land for about two years before moving to LaGrange County, Indiana, where their last two children were born (William Wallace and Mahala Jane).

By 1850, the family had moved to Bureau County, Illinois.

Jacob and Hannah (Stryker) Eastlick had the following children:

Alexander Eastlick, married Mahala Harrison.
Edward Bunn Eastlick, married Josephine Gilman.
Mary Ann Eastlick, married Jacob Sells.
Lorinda Eastlick, married John Harrison.
Sylvester Eastlick, married Phebe Dutcher, then married Caroline Dutcher.
Cordelia Eastlick, married Jared Whipple.
Helen Eastlick, married Michael Spencer Whipple.
Mahlon Densmore Eastlick, married Abbie Vaughan.
Lafayette Eastlick, married Sarah Elizabeth Lampher, then married Sarah Alvina Preston.
William Wallace Eastlick, married Amanda Gage.
Mahala Jane Eastlick, married Isaac Gage, then married Ephraim D. Hayes.

Jacob Eastlick died in 1870 and was buried in the Bowen Cemetery in Bureau County, Illinois. His widow Hannah followed some of her children to California, where she died in 1881 and is buried in the Studebaker Cemetery outside Philo, Mendocino, California.
