  • Notes 
    • David Eby was son of Jacob Eby (1797) and Susannah Myers/Meyer. Peter, Jacob, Samuel, Susannah and John were named in the petition.

      Jacob took into his care 3 of 5 children (Peter Susannah and John), (now everybody assumed these 3 children were Jacob and Susannah's children, when in fact they were GRANDCHILDREN!). George Swine (Schwein/Swane) was named guardian of all these children. George's wife Mary Long was sister of Annie Long. Jacob and Susannah eventually moved to Stephenson co., Illinois, taking grandchildren with them. No trace of Peter and Susannah after 1850. John showed up in 1860 census and no trace after that.

      Jacob the boy was found living with cousin Jacob (1806) (wife Charlotte). This Jacob is son of Henry Eby and Elizabeth Rachel Rhoads. Henry was brother of Jacob (1797). A review of death certificates, showed Jacob's middle name was Q., per wife's death certificate.

      Samuel is found living in Cromwell with John and Catharine Glack in 1850. John apparently remarried, wife being Mary after 1850. No trace of Samuel since then.

      Only Jacob Q. Eby continued to 1909 when he died.

      A review of many sites containing these families revealed a error. All assumed Peter, Susannah and John were sons of Jacob and Susannah, when in fact they were their grandchildren after their son David's death.

      Same is true for Jacob who was assumed to be son of Jacob and Charlotte, and in reality, their young cousin.David Samuelsen

      Today, received death certificate from Pennsylvania for Jacob O/P/Q Eby

      The disparity in middle name is crazy.

      Census says Jacob Q. Eby

      Gravemarker says Jacob O. Eby

      Death Certificate says Jacob P. Eby

      Jacob was born 10 Jan 1842 Shirley, Huntingdon, Pennsylvania to David Eby and Annie Long (per death certificate)

      Died 11 Dec 1909 Altoona, Blair, Pennsylvania

      Adminstration paper was filed 8 November 1849 for David Eby's estate,naming Jacob Eby and Samuel McVitty as administrators along with George Eby and George Jackson as sureties

      Orphan's Court docket index mentioned guardianship paper filed for David's children (note the purality). It said Vol 5 page 90, and it has not been located yet.

      Samuel mcvitty is identified as born 4 Nov 1815 in Shirleysburg, PA to Thomas McVitty and Mary Cook, wife was Esther McKinstry.

      Jacob Eby is likely born 1807, to Benjamin Eby and Sarah Salome Baer;wife, Charlotte.

      Jacob Eby is closest match to being father of David. Evidence is lacking.

      Jacob Eby has Jacob Eby aged 8 in 1850 census. It is not known if it is his own son or if it is his grandson Jacob O/P/Q Eby because of the ages of other Eby's living in the household, in Hamilton, Franklin, Pennsylvania.

      As for David's wife, Annie Long, she may be daughter of Christian Long who died in 1848 in Shirley.

      Any information is appreciated to point in correct direction.

      Anyone have full list for Germany Valley Cemetery where these Eby's are buried?
