  • Notes 
    • Dieter Eby Newman (262)

      Ancestry in the "Biographical Annals of Lancaster County" states that he was born in Elizabeth Township. The old mill his father built in 1790 was his home form early manhood.
    • Headstone reads:

      Zum/Andenken von/Johannes Eby./Er war Geboren den/ 23ted October/1797,/ und Starbden 25sten/ May 1845./ brachte sein alter auf/ 77 Jahre 7 monate/und 2 tage/

      (Son of Christian Eby 1734-1807 and Catharine Bricker)

      Rough translation:
      To Memory of Johannes Eby. He was born 23 October 1797 and died 25 May 1845. Brought be old one on 77 years 7 months and 2 days.
    • From the "Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage" April 1986.

      A story was written on Peters brother Benjamin and this portion was taken from that article:

      "Benjamin's brother John, or Hannes, was also a leading figure in the community. He served as director of road building and built the first schoolhouse on his farm at his own expense and hired the teachers. His understanding of the faith and its meaning for the Christian community will be seen later........"
