Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1870, USA
Death: 1914, USA

Son of Amanda America Clementine McDaniel and William Franklin Eads Sr. Husband to Darthula Dalue Smith. They married on Feb. 29, 1896 in Wayne Co., MO and had six children: Frank, Buck, Mollie Camalene Tipton, Columbus F., James Arnold and Ruth Nicholson.
William was born in Missouri shortly after his family immigrated there from North Carolina sometime in 1870. He had at least ten siblings: Roxanne Vannoy, Eli Wyatt Eads, Andrew Huston Eads, Nancy Jane Johnson, Mary Belle Campbell, Clemmon Eads, Johnny Eads, Lucy Eads, Minnie Eads and Martha Eads.
His father William Franklin Eads Sr. is listed in "The History of Southeast Missouri" published in Chicago by the Goodspeed Publishing Co. in 1888:
"W.F. Eads (Sr.) was born in Wilkes County (NC), and is the son of John and Polly (Massey) Eads. The elder Eads (John) was also born in Wilkes County, where he lived and died. He learned the trade of a carpenter, and was considered a fine workman, but he never especially followed the trade, turning his attention to farming, as he owned a splendid farm in his native county. The mother was also born in North Carolina, and there spent her entire life. The father was forty-six years of age when he died from the effects of a cancer. The mother died about one year ago (about 1887), at the advanced age of eighty-seven. There were eight children in the family, three of whom are now living: John, Nancy and William F.; those dead are Alvin, Pinckney, Milly , Alfred, Granberry and James. Mr. Eads (W. F.) was married in North Carolina, in 1859 to Annie McDaniel, and had eleven children, six of them now living. Mr. Eads served in the late war (Civil) as a private under Robert E. Lee, Thirty-fourth North Carolina Regiment (Confederate); was in the service twelve months, participating in the entire fight known as the Virginia Wilderness and this regiment is credited with opening the firing , lasting for eleven days. He was captured at Hanover Junction, with 900 other comrades, was taken to Point Lookout, and confined in prison nearly a year, suffering greatly during his term of imprisonment. He was afterward paroled. Mr. Eads has devoted his life to farming, and owns 125 acres, 80 of which are under cultivation. He and his wife are members of the Missionary Baptist Church."
