Re: Jonas EYRE (Delaware County PA)
- Ancestry.com has a copy of a book "Chester (and its vicinity) Delaware County, in Pennsylvania : with genealogical sketches of some old families" that has numerous mentions of the EYRE family (specifically Jonas & Preston) -
"Jonas Eyre, his son, was first married 1791 ... two children, Jesse Beckerton and Jonas Preston Eyre. ... m. 1818 Rebecca ... Their children were: Jonas b. 4 mo. 19, 1819, ... " (page 52)
It appears that the book is also available elsewhere on the web -
