    Notes:

    Per "A Brief Record of the Ebys" by Jacob Eby, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 1923, Daniel Eaby married Barbara Brubaker. Could this be a second wife or incorrect information somewhere?

    In 1880 Daniel is married to Lydia - according to the census so I suspect that the error is in the book.

    PETER R. EABY, now living retired in East Lampeter township, was born Sept. 25, 1841, in East Earl township, and was for many years identified with the prosperous farmers of Lancaster county.

    Peter Eaby, the father of our subject, was born Sept. 10, 1804, in Leacock township, this county, and was educated in the local public schools. In 1830 he wedded Miss Annie Runk, daughter of Jacob Runk, and to this union were born eleven children, three of whom died in infancy: Susan became the wife of Jacob Evans: Mary wedded Jacob Senich; Elias is a resident of Atlantic City; Annie is the wife of Aaron H. Bair; Peter R. is our subject; Adam is deceased; Elizabeth is the wife of Samuel G. Souder; Daniel, resides in Fetterville, Pa. The mother was a member of the Old Mennonite Church. Mr. Eaby in politics was a Republican, and he held the office of school director for some years.

    Peter R. Eaby remained at home with his parents until he was about twenty-eight years of age. His education was acquired in the common schools of the county. When he began farming for himself he followed that occupation two years on his father's farm, after which he moved to Paradise township and farmed there for ten years. He has since lived retired. Mr. Eaby is a member of the Old Mennonite Church. He has always affiliated with the Republican party in politics, and has held the office of tax collector for about twelve years.

    Our subject wedded Miss Annie Longenecker, of Lancaster county. They have no children. Mr. Eaby is one of Lancaster county's most progressive men, and he is very highly respected in the community in which he lives, a fact to which his long continuance in office, bears most convincing testimony. He is public-spirited, and is fully alive to all the best interests of his church and community.

    JACOB M. EABY, one of the substantial citizens of Lancaster county and a resident of Paradise village, has been active in agricultural, mercantile and business affairs for many years, and is prominent and influential in matters that pertain to the general welfare. He is the representative of one of the old and honored families of the county.
    Jacob Eby (for so the family name was spelled a century ago) grandfather of Jacob M., was born in Leacock township, near Intercourse, Nov. 9, 1776, and his wife, Susannah (Miller) Eby, was born Aug. 2, 1779. They spent their lives on the old family homestead at Intercourse, engaged in farming pursuits and devoutly living in the religious light of the Dunkard Church. Their family consisted of eleven children, as follows: Moses, born Nov. 27, 1801, who became a merchant at Intercourse and died Feb. 27, 1891; Maria, May 3, 18O3, who married Daniel Esbenshade, and died Feb. 2, 1891; Peter, Sept. 11, 1804, a farmer, who died March 19, 1881; Daniel M., Aug. 10, 1809, died Aug. 31, 1893; Hannah, Nov. 30, 1810, who married John Rauck and died April 29, 1882; Esther, July 19, 1812, died July 24, 1812; Lydia, July 22, 1814, who married Isaac Bair, and died Sept. 25, 1876; Joseph, Aug. 23, 1818, a farmer unmarried; Ann, Aug. 11, 1820, died April 19, 1897; Susannah, May 28, 1822, who died unmarried, in January, 1898; Jacob, Feb. 19, 1825, died Feb. 12, 1864. All these sons spelled their names Eaby.
    Daniel M. Eaby, the father of Jacob M., was reared on the homestead. His educational opportunities were limited but he was an ambitious boy and was eager to fit himself for teaching. He applied himself to his studies and by a course of self-instruction he became proficient in the common branches and was qualified to teach in both English and German. For many years he taught in the public schools of Lancaster county. He also acquired the carpenter's trade and followed it in connection with teaching. He was active and industrious, and in connection with the above vocations, he engaged in farming. He was recognized as one of the forceful, influential men of Lancaster county and was twice elected to the office of county auditor. He also served for many years as school director in Bart township. In 1863 he enlisted as a carpenter in the military service of his country and four of his sons also enlisted during the Civil war. Daniel M. Eaby married Miss Caroline Bair, who was born Nov. 9, 1808; she was the daughter of Joel and Mary Bair, and was a woman of unusual intelligence and education. Her death occurred April 9, 1869. Eight children were born to Daniel M. and Caroline (Bair) Eaby. The first child, born Dec. 10, 1836, died in infancy; Joel S., Feb. 20, 1838, is a resident of Lancaster; George W., Feb. 5, 1840, is a resident of Lancaster City; Mary Ann, Feb. 23, 1843, is the widow of William Rice and is a resident of Wooster, Ohio; Henry B., Feb. 19, 1845, enlisted in 1863 in the 195th P. V. I., re-enlisted in 1864, was mustered out in June, 1865, and is now in the United States postal service with residence at Wooster, Ohio; Daniel E., May 16, 1847, is a resident of Lancaster; Jacob M., was born March 8, 1850; Susannah C., July 25, 1852, died Aug. 13, 1886, the wife of Sem Eby. The parents of these children were members of the Dunkard Church but in later years the father identified himself with the Old Mennonite Church.
    Jacob M. Eaby was reared to farm life, receiving a fair education in the public schools and in the high school at Oxford. He was diligent in study and at eighteen was well qualified to begin his career as a teacher in the public schools of Lancaster county, where he continued for eleven and a half terms. He was then for nine years engaged in butchering in Paradise village, in connection with farming his forty-two acres of land at Williamstown. Then dealing in cattle for some two and a half years, he in 1891 succeeded to the mercantile business which had been conducted by the Witmer family at Paradise and to this business he gave his personal attention until July, 1898, when he transferred the control of the estate to his son Walter. Since that time Mr. Eaby has devoted himself to the Lancaster County Mutual Fire Insurance Company, of which he is the secretary.
    Mr. Eaby married, Nov. 5, 1872, Miss Catherine E. Eby, who was born at Belmont, Lancaster county, Nov. 5, 1852, daughter of Jacob and Magdalena (Wanner) Eby. To Jacob M. and Catherine Eaby six children have been born, namely: Cora Etta, wife of Martin E. Hershey, a farmer of Paradise; Charles W., attorney-at-law at Lancaster, a graduate of Millersville State Normal, class of 1897, who read law with Hon. J. Hay Brown, and W. U. Hensel, teaching two terms of school meanwhile, admitted to the Bar Dec. 24, 1899, and now practicing law at Lancaster; Walter C., who has succeeded his father in the mercantile business at Paradise, married Miss R. Mae Zeigler and has one child living, Ethel; Ella C., and Edna M., both graduates of Millersville State Normal, class of 1901; and Guy C., at home. Mr. and Mrs. Eaby are prominent members of the Presbyterian Church at Paradise, of which he is one of the trustees.
    In politics Mr. Eaby affiliates with the Republican party. At the age of twenty-eight he was elected to the office of justice of the peace. He has filled various other local offices, including those of assessor, member of the county committee, etc. He has been prominent in the local fraternal organizations; he is a member of the Pequea Lodge, No. 161, I. 0. 0. F., and of William Pitt Encampment, also of Bart Lodge, No. 162, K. of P., and since 1885 he has also been treasurer of the latter lodge. He was a prominent member and the treasurer of Paradise Castle, No. 143, Mystic Chain, during its existence, and a member of Tanawah Tribe, I. 0. R. M., of Paradise. Mr. Eaby is one of the prominent and progressive business men of Lancaster county, whose influence is ever exerted in public enterprises tending to the public good. His wide experience in business and mercantile life, together with his native ability and sound judgment, make him one of those natural leaders among men whose counsels are ever sought and prized by the discerning public.
