John was only 21 years of age when his father, Isaac, died. It is fairly certain that he had been married prior to his marriage
to Millicent because the 1790 census for Pitt County, NC. lists John Easton with himself and four female and 21 slaves.
John Easton is believed to be John Eason because James Legget of Greene County, GA. gave a "power of attorney" to
John Easton of Pitt County, NC. on January 9, 1796 and it was witnessed by Theophs Thomas and Frederick Ward.
On October 1, 1796, John Eason, as agent of said Legget, sold certain lands to Henry Williamson in Pitt County witnessed
by Coburn Eason and Joshua Barnes.
Millicent Thomas had been married to James Tartt prior to her marriage to John Eason and although there were three minor
Tartt children when her husband, James Tartt, died, none of them are believed to be Millicent's children.
Prior to 1790, John Eaosn had acquired an estate of 800 acres, of which the "home" of Isaac Sr. and 330 acres was
inherited from the estate of Isaac I. He also had nine slaves. His wife Millicent was a land owner and slave holder from
her former husband.
