I find on your site a reference to a "J F. Eyman" listed in "Distinguished Citizens of Allegheny County V2 ".. a book I can't seem to find for sale. I'd love to have any information about this relative. Eymans were moving through Maryland on the way to West Virginia, and places far west. I suspect this may be a critical link for me.. likely a "Jacob" who fathered many of the Eymans of West Virginia. Any help would be deeply appreciated.
