In 1813, Judge Eyles and his family, then consisting of wife and four children, viz.: Mary Ann, Eveline, a child named Clarinda who died on the journey, and William Madison, came west, crossing the Allegheny Mountains by the old Braddock road, down the Youghiogheny, and through Pittsburg to Palmyra, Trumbull county, Ohio, where they lived about a year, and then moved to Portage township, now a part of Akron. Here Mr. Eyles bought ;., farm, and built a log house, where the old --Summit House" Hotel used to be. In January 1820, he sold out and removed to Wadsworth, onto the farm, on the Akron road still called the "Eyles Farm." His children had increased by one, Clarinda-Elvira, born in Portage; and here in Wadsworth were born Betsey-Maria, Ann-Louisa, and Viola-Matilda.
Judge Eyles was a most zealous Christian, and made it a rule, when any one was baptized, and applied for admission to the church, to present him with a new Testament, with the information, that that book was the creed, and all he was required to believe.Genealogy of One Line of the Pardee Family, and SomeCensus 1850From "History of Medina County"
Mr. Eyles was a remarkable man. He inherited nothing from his father but a good constitution and strong mind. He was a cooper by trade, which he followed. in connection with farming, for many years. during which he accumulated considerable property ; his early education was quite limited. but he made up for this deficiency by an unusual share of natural ability and good sense; he was much respected by his neighbors and fellow-citizens ; this was manifested by their keeping him in public office, without his seeking ; he was Justice of the Peace in Portage. and afterward in Wadsworth —in all. more than twenty years ; he was County Commissioner one or two terms. was twice elected to the Legislature. and served one term as Associate Judge of the Court of Common Pleas ; he was originally a Jeffersonian Democrat, but voted for John Quincy Adams in 1824 and in 1828: was afterward a Van Buren man and. finally. a Republican of the straitest sect ; and he always asserted and believed that he had never changed his politics in the least. In religion. he was by education a Congregationalist. but. while living in Portage Township. he and his wife united with the Baptists. In 1824, Mr. Eyles and his wife assisted in forming the first Disciples Church in Wadsworth, and each continued earnest and consistent members of that church during life. No citizen of Medina County ever left a better example to those who should come after him than did Judge Eyles.
