John H Eaves
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1841
Death: Mar. 25, 1866

According to the book, Augusta's Story*, the only Eaves actually buried in this spot is John Eaves. It suggests that John was the father but preliminary research has turned up evidence that the father of these boys is Joel Eaves. In addition, John that was buried in Pulaski Cemetery was reportedly only 25 years old. On Fold3.com (formerly Footnote.com) there is an AWOL record for Joel Eaves during the Civil War. Joel was tracked down in Schuyler County, Illinois. A Joseph Eaves is found living in Augusta, Hancock, Illinois with his wife Sarah.... A project for another day...

The text in Augusta's Story:
There are five marble slabs bearing the following names:
John E. Eaves, Co. B, 7th Missouri Cavalry.
John H. Eaves, 16th Illinois Infantry.
Hooley Eaves, Co. G, 7th Missouri Cavalry.
William T. Eaves, Co. B, 7th Missouri Cavalry.
Enoch J. Eaves, Co. B, 7th Missouri Cavalry.

Of the five only one is buried here, John Eaves. The other four were his sons, and all of the other headstones were placed there at the same time as it was planned that all of them would be eventually buried there.
