In 1852 he was married to Susannah Hershey, who, with four sons and three daughters, survive him. In 1866 he moved from Lancaster to the Reiff's district, Washington Co., Md., where he spent the remaining portion of his earthly pilgrimage. Bro. Eby was converted and united with the Mennonite church in 1858, and remained a consistent member to the end. For nearly 54 years he bore the cross of Christ, and then the Lord called him home. Funeral services at Reiff's Church, Feb. 18, conducted by Geo. S. Keener and C. R. Strite. Text, Job 5:26. May God in His infinite wisdom and goodness comfort the grief-stricken family and sorrowing friends, and move each of them to "walk in newness of life" towards the Home where our departed brother is at rest.
