Isaac Van Eaton was the seventh of eleven children of John Van Etten & his second wife, Margaret Lefevre. Isaac and his full brothers changed the spelling of their name from Van Etten to Van Eaton. Isaac married in 1795 to Rebecca Renshaw (1777-1868)---possibly a daughter of Joseph Renshaw, born 1744; 12 children, 10 of whom were Levi, David, Mary, Joseph, Sarah, James, Rebecca, Eliza, Lucinda, and Isaac.
I visited Asbury Cemetery in Anderson township in 1973. To get there from Cincinnati, drive east on Route 125 to Asbury Road, turn right and go south to Forest Road, turn right again. The cemetery is just west of the intersection of Asbury and Forest Roads. The Van Eatons are buried in the southwest corner of the old section. Isaac's 1847 stone was standing and legible; the bottom half is inscribed with part of the 23rd Psalm: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." Rebecca Van Eaton's stone is broken in half. The stone of their daughter Sarah Kyle had fallen over.
