Am trying to tie my Hadlocks from Missouri into the New England group. Corresponded years ago with Lindie Bliss. Samuel Hardin Hadlock born 19 Feb 1801 in Seneca co NY. His wife was Mary Ann Eliza Owen born 10 Mar 1807 Mansfield, Tolland, CN. We believe Samuel's father was David born 1767 Seneca/ Schuyler co NY. Could not find any info on David in Seneca NY. David's children were: Lydia, Samuel, David, Benjamin, Betsy, and Willard. Hope someone can help here. My email is

Paige, it's been years! The families of David are not correct. There are daughters buried next to their father, David, and they are not listed as Davids children on the Mormon genealogies! There must be 2 Davids. One died in Ill. 5 Jan 1872 and ours died in Mo. 24 Dec 1863. They are probably cousins since they both came from NY. There are Hadlocks from the south and the fact that census takers wrote their name as Headlock might mean some family was there and came north again later. I have a new lead... write me back at

David Hadlock was my great 5x grandfather. His son was Samuel Hardin Hadlock.
His son was Samuel Hardin Hadlock, Jr., who married Juliette Savage (Sauvage originally).
Their daughter Mary Ann Hadlock was my great grandmother who married John Thomas Eagon.

The information I found was: David was born about 1771 in NY and died 12-24-1863 in Bolivar, Polk Co., Missouri. He married Elizabeth Street abt. 1799 in Catherine, Schuyler, NY. Elizabeth was born 7-20-1775 in Wallingford, New Haven, Connecticut, and died Woodford Co., Illinois.
Their children were:
Samuel Hardin Hadlock
Lydia Hadlock
Benjamin Hadlock
Betsy Eliza Hadlock
Willard Hadlock, b: abt. 1815 Catherine, Schuyler, NY
I have no info on David's parents.

hey cousin!

It seems we are fairly -close cousins. I descend through Mary Ann and John Thomas Eagon's dau. Lillie, who was my gt-grma. (Margie is my grandma)

P. Elmore is also working on David Hadlock. Hopefully we will get our David's straightened out soon and be able to go back a few more generations...Am going to National Archived to dig around. Thanks for the response. Paige

It is nice to find relatives! My grandma
Nora Glover, who is May Elizabeth Eagon's (Lillie Eagon's sister) daughter wrote a book about her life. In it it says: Our first teacher was our Aunt Lillie Eagon, mother's sister. And she gave us to understand we had to be good, so people wouldn't accuse her of being better to us than the other boys and girls. The school was called the Ratliff and had grades one up to and including the eighth. With 30 or 40 children, first to eighth grade was taught.

Another section says: The Eagons were short people. Mother (May), Jessie and Grandpa Eagon (John Thomas) were only five feet tall. The others were shorter. Aunt Lillie said if she ever weighed 100 lbs. it would scare her so she never would weigh that again!

I think I have a five generation picture which has Mary Ann Hadlock Eagon and my great grandma May Eagon Glover in it. I could send you a copy if you forward your address to me. I don't have a scanner so I can't attach it to an email message. I also have a picture that has Mary Ann Hadlock Eagon's mother Juliette Sauvage (Savage)in it along with May, my grandma Nora and my dad. S. Allen

S. Allen,
Thanks for the note. I loved the stories you told about the Eagon's. I have a picture somewhere of Lillie and her school. Someone circled all her younger brother's and sister's on it. There is a picture of everyone all dressed up in front of the house, too. That's funny to hear about how short the Eagon's were. It makes sense now why my grandma Juliette Marjorie Taft (Margie) was so proud of being 5' and 1/2". She always included that half inch. I met Aunt Nellie once when I was really small. I remember being afraid of her because she was so old, but she was really nice. My cousin Rebecca has a video I'm trying to get a copy of with gt Grandma Lillie on it. It was just a few years before she passed away. She was so tiny.
Let me know if you want a copy of those pictures. I'm not sure where they are right now. We moved not too long ago and I haven't even made my way down to the (dungeon yet) basement. Everything is in gian disorderly piles... yuck!

I'd love to have a copy of the pictures you mentioned. I almost forgot the most important one I have. I have a picture of the Eagon women and also my great uncle Leonard Glover and Rocoa or Roscoe Eagon. The women in the picture are May Eagon Glover, Orpha Meyers (I'm not sure who she is), Julia Eagon Larimore, Amy Eagon Redd, Juliette Sauvage Hadlock, Verna Canbell Eagon (Jessie Eagon's wife), and Lillie Eagon Taft. I think I can have my son scan the picture and email it to you if you want.
He has the original. also, do you have birth/death dates for Julia Eagon Larimore, Jessie Eagon, Amy Eagon Redd, Joe Eagon, Nora Eagon, and Nellie Eagon Larimore/Green?
The only dates I have are for May and Lillie.

Hi Sue,

Thanks so much for the email. I don't have the picture you are talking about and would love a copy. I'm looking for mine. I have several to send. I love the one in front of the school.
I don't have all the dates on this family, but I do have some. Nora was one and a half when she died. I don't have May's birth and death, and marriage dates... Could you send them to me?

That's all I have so far. I got most of that from Burdette Eagon (Joe's son) in 1982. I don't know if he is still living. He was the Dean of University in WI.

Hope this information will add to yours...
