  • Notes 
    • In his will Jacob says "..my will is further that the Widow Eury (Eary) shall have the care of my daughter Eve as she hath had the care of it ever since the death of its Mother." This led James Hook and others to suggest that Eve may have been handicapped and Widow Eary may have been the mother of his second wife, Barbary. [1]
    • Eve Eller Crotser and David Crotser (shown sometimes as Crotzer) left Rowan County, NC circa 1825 for Fayette Co, IL. with their children. David could have died along the way or in Fayette County prior to the 1835 State Census. Eve Eller, his wife, was on that 1835 Census. We find the family on the 1790 thru 1820 Rowan County Census and V-122 #0004 Fayette County State Census. [4]
