John Eaton b. ca 1787 PA? to Gore of Toronto to Dawn Tp Lambton to Grey Co.

I am a descendant of an Alvira Eaton b. ca 1812-1814 in the US probably. She married George Lampman and lived in Dawn Tp Lambton Co/Camden Gore Kent Co. I believe she was probably the daughter of John Eaton and his wife Ann. Some of the clues regarding this are: 1) Both The Eatons and George Lampman moved to Dawn Tp (same area - not far from Eatons)about the same time - ca 1830s; 2) they both secured their property from Toronto; and 3) George married Alvira Eaton most likely while in Dawn Tp as their oldest child was born in abt 1840. With this in mind, there are some other fascinating connections which may prove useful in identifying John's wife Ann who was born in Johnstown, CW. Alvira was involved in land deals with Weston Allen (who at one time had land in Dawn Tp. and lived in Oxford Co.). It was not common for a woman to be involved in land deals unless there was some connection between the parties. I would like to propose that perhaps the connection was through Ann. Weston was from the Elizabethtown Leeds region. If possible I would like to correspond with someone who would like to discuss both the possibility that Alvira is daughter of John and Ann, and also the Weston Allen connection.
