Background
John Samuel Eastwood was born on a farm near Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1857. Family tradition holds that his grandfather, Arent van Oosterhout, served as a Royal Dutch Engineer in the 18th century with responsibility for dike construction in low-lying regions of Holland. Although proud of his family heritage -- and the engineering activities of his grandfather -- John nonetheless "Americanized" his name from Oosterhout in 1878 in anticipation of entering the commercial and professional world.
