Hi I am looking for any information on the eastwoods living in the gypsy encampment in ash tree lane.  I understand that their was a women named 'Granny Eastwood' and her picture was in a book.  I believe she may have been related to  my great great grandfather James R Eastwood.  any info would be appreciated!!!!
