- Mahala Eastin married Maj. Elisha English, a prominent citizen of Indiana; a member of the Legislature for twenty years and U. S. Marshal in 1860. Their only child, William Heyden English, was distinguished as statesman, historian and financier, Speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives, member of Congress, and, in 1880, was candidate on the National Democratic ticket with Hancock, for Vice-President of the United States. Judge William H. English married Emma E. Jackson, of Virginia. Their son, Hon William Eastin English, ex-member of the Legislature, ex-member of Congress, served in the Spanish-American War, with credit, on Gen'l Wheeler's staff, in the Santiago campaign. Capt. English never drew any pay, and after the close of the war a cheque for the amount due him was sent by the government; he returned the cheque saying, "I served my country, for my country's sake, not for money." The amount was turned into the United States treasury and became part of its miscellaneous receipts. This is said to be the only instance of the kind on record, excepting that of Gen'l Washington, who never received pay for his services. Capt. English married Helen Orr. They have one child, Rosalind Orr English, aged two years and a half, August, 1905.
