Haverhill, said when living, that his mother had seen Hannah, when an old lady, riding horseback behind her son Amos in Hollis. In a list of people in Hollis who died at great age, the name of Hannah does not appear. The date of the deaths and the place of burial of Jonathan and Hannah Eastman is unknown, but as we trace the life and character of this devoted couple, we cannot fail to observe that they possessed to a notable degree the true pioneer spirit.
We find the tribe ever the leaders, but never the followers of civilization. Where the Indian once hunted and fished and lived his sav- age life, pretty villages now cluster among the trees and hill- sides, and well-filled barns and storehouses attest to the f ruitf ul- ness of the country and the industry of the inhabitants. Hard indeed would it be to find a hamlet, however small, that did not contain one or more of the descendants of Jonathan Eastman and wife Hannah.
From Massachusetts line to Canada, they have left the impress of their lives upon the land and upon the people. The descendants of Jonathan Eastman show on the New Hampshire Revolutionary rolls their loyalty to the colony in Four brothers, grandsons of Jonathan Eastman, served in the war of the revolution. Take the Eastmans as a whole, the writer has found them extremely patriotic, and all, with the exception of only two, very fond of their country. No costly granite, nor sculptured marble, marks the resting place of this couple. Mournfully and sweet the breezes chant a requiem over those lonely graves hidden among the granite hills.
But in the hearts and memories of their descendants they will ever be held in honored remembrance, until that " last great day " when each hillside grave shall give up its dead, " touched by God's right hand. This deed probably establishes the date, or about the date, of Jonathan's removal from Haverhill, and also that at the time he lived in Haverhill instead of Andover. It is a little singular the deed makes no mention of a consideration at all. This property is now owned by St.
Paul's School Corpora- tion, Concord. I give, devise, and dispose thereof in manner and form following. I also give her one cow, six sheep, one swine and my horse, to be hers forever, all which I will and order my son Amos to keep for her, winter and summer, or others of the like number if she dispose of them during the time she remains my widow. In witness whereof I, the said Jonathan Eastman have hereunto set my hand and seal in this second day of March Anno Domini , and in the twenty first year of his Majesty's reign.

Joseph was a student with Rev. Williams at Deerfield, Mass. He was three years a captive of the French government in Canada. On his return he settled on his grandfather Tilton's estate in Hadley. He was a deacon of the church in Hadley for many years, a staunch friend of Elder Edwards, and endorsed his views. No children. He was a Tory, and it was made so hot for him that he went to New York, where he soon after died. March 28, Ephraim Smith, of Gran by, Mass.
March 13, Peter Eastman probably settled in Suffield, Conn. From SuflSeld, Peter removed to New Jersey, probably on account of his mother going there, sometime between the birth of his son Hezekiah and son Benjamin. The earliest mention of him in New Jersey is in the deed mentioned below. It is very probable all his children, except the first five, were born in New Jersey, but no records of their birth can be found. He returned to Connecticut and located in New Fairfield in the thirties, as the proprietors records of Cornwall, show he bought land there in , and he was called then "of New Fairfield.
We have no record of his death, but it is probable he died soon after the leasing of his last and only farm to his beloved son, Joseph. No will or settlement of his estate has been found. The records of this branch of the family have been so imperfectly kept that not much data concerning them can be obtained, consequently we have to rely on tradition. One is that he had twelve sons and some daughters. It is possible he had more than one wife, though we have no record of another.

Of his family record it is difficult to obtain much, especially dates, as his records were lost by fire at the " Shakers. April 28, The order of births may not be correct. He, with Peter Green probably his uncle , owned a large share of Hampstead, as also the island in Island Pond in Hampstead. We have no further record of him except the birth of his children on the town books.
The proprietors of Haverhill, March 21, , gave to Hon. Richard Saltonstall, a member of His Majesty's Council, one half of the large island in Island Pond, in consideration of valuable services rendered the proprietors ; the remainder was sold to him for thirty shillings an acre. It was then estimated to contain two hundred acres, and called Island Farm in Perch Pond.

Basically, I won't be here to indulge, sustain or fortify your B. That shit has to go. Trademarks of game changers. I've learnt many things since beginning my soulful business pursuits in , but if there is one thing that has stood out the most, it is the characteristics and soul qualities of those that create beautiful, explosive, sustainable, audaciously authentic businesses.
But I'm not here to tell you to fit in that box although, it's totally fine if you do. Instead, I'm actually going to tell you some pretty basic stuff. What I really want, is for you to sit with this information and take 10 seconds after each statement and discern How does it feel? Who am I really? Does this feel spacious or restricting? I work with the wild hearts that resonate with my teachings and style of leadership, so let's make sure we're a good fit. You ready?
You're more of a "I'll get to it later" kinda gal. I know who I can give my best to. I'm here to be with the people that see value in delivering their message, well before they feel ready. If you are, I really cannot wait for you, my friend. Let's make magic together. The humble path. If you've read ABOUT me, you'll know that leadership, diversity and wellness course through my veins. I'm an ever-changing, nimble and spontaneous being, which has meant that my passions and curiosities lead me places aplenty. But the one thing that has remained the same is my love for health.
It gave me a great foundation for my own health practices, and I soon found myself in Little Athletics, Netball, Basketball, Hockey and every sport in between. When I hit 16 I started to rebel against the constraints of school - the rigidity and one-dimensional learning environments were not satisfying me.
I was spending all my time outside of school hours training in various sports and learning about my body and relevant training methods, and in school Here's the thing, I was actually a great student despite not going much, and being the resourceful gal that I am, I would teach myself out of text books and the internet, and would get great grades.
Partially awesome, and partially totally taking the piss. I felt so hungry for interesting content, that I just could NOT understand how staying at school would contribute to my success and education. I also didn't have a great desire to appease other people, and when combined with my thirst for external knowledge, this lead to much contention. Trust that I would make it work, and trust that I would always keep learning irrespective of my attendance at school or uni. I'm resourceful AF, and the thought of not finishing school was liberating, rather than scary.
So, against the advice and very firm suggestion of everyone in my life, I just stopped going to school. My parents were not impressed, and many teachers told me I was throwing my life away which, at the time, sounded like music to my ears, and quite frankly, an exciting challenge. So, I ended up getting a traineeship to become a Personal Trainer, and in exchange for the fees, I worked in the head office of the organisation in an administrative role. Basically, I decided that I could make waves in the Fitness industry, so I started my own business when I was 17 operating out of the local park, and later graduated to the garage.
To be honest, I was never truly satisfied with that, and explored approximately 7 other study options yes, I still went to uni without finishing school - and again, I was left hungry for more juice. So, after about 7 years of exploration of "the thing" that would satisfy my need for creativity, togetherness, and freedom the pillars of my business now , something happened.
A big catalyst. I found out I was pregnant Yep, it's as hectic as it sounds. And, right when I was 4 months pregnant, that fabulous man and I both lost big contracts in our work, and were all of a sudden, income-less. As they say, from the ashes, the phoenix rises. Honestly, my story hasn't felt like that at all, but when I look back, I can see that THAT is exactly what has happened.
So what happened next was not so much panic, but action-packed planning and problem solving. I called my friend Alice you can check her out here , she's amazing , asked her how I go about doing this oils thing she does so well, and I started an oils business immediately. I'd built up trust in the oils over the previous 2 years using them, and it had only just dawned on me, that the business opportunity attached to those beautiful oils, was calling for me.
Yep, we've been on quite the trip. This work has breathed life into my ideas, my family, my heart, my belief, my relationships, my quality of work, my need for community, my devotion to making my life sacred, and so notably, my financial health. This work has provided a way for me to honour my duty to nurture, love and be present with my children, and has allowed me to pursue my own creative and entrepreneurial desires.
I know myself well enough by now, to know that I am not a woman who would ever decide between being a mother or a light worker in soulful entrepreneurship. I have always known that I would need both. And nothing less.

We have grown exponentially in our short time together, Team Heart. I am now the foundress of a 6-figure organisation, and honestly, that has me welling up at the very thought of it. And I'll be real, to ground my business in results and growth, it was 2 years of …. I did the tremendously hard yards and the gritty, behind the scenes work when no one was watching. I had tough conversations and deeply meaningful ones. I modelled the possibilities available to each and every one of you, and I breathed life into the ideas that had sat dormant in my mind for too long, and I hope that it breathes life into yours too.
And finally, I had the discernment to never let the hard stuff stop me. I have grown exponentially more in this work than I have with the rest of my life combined.
