      AMAZIAH B. EBY is a practical machinist, ranking among the foremost of the trade in the State, and a man of high character. He is alert and keen-eyed, intelligent and awake to all the demands his calling makes upon him.
      Benjamin Eby, his father, was the third son of Sim Eby,and was born May 7, 1838. He was reared as a farm boy, and his education was such as was afforded by the local day and public schools. He began operations for himself when he was twenty- four years of age, renting property and engaging in farming for twenty years on the land of others. At the end of that period he bought a farm of fifty-four acres in Leacock township, near Ellsworth postoffice, where he has been engaged in general farming for many years.
      In 1897 he purchased the George Beiler property at Paradise, and made it his home. The place consists of eleven acres of land, with a chopping mill and machine shop, where general machine repairing is done. The milling department is under the management of Mr. Eby, while his son, Amaziah, has charge of the machine work.
      Mr. Eby was married in November, 1862, to Miss Hattie Buckwalter, a daughter of Samuel and Elizabeth (Rohrer) Buckwalter. Mrs. Eby died in 1867, at the age of twenty-six years, leaving two children, Amaziah B. and Ada E. In 1869 Mr. Eby was married to Miss Elizabeth Hoover, a daughter of Benjamin and Barbara (Brockbill) Hoover. To this marriage were born the following children: Annie, Lena, Amanda, Amos, Naomi and Silas. Annie is the wife of John R. Frantz, a miller at Millersville; Lena is the wife of C. H. Hersh, a farmer of Byerstown. Mr. and Mrs. Eby belong to the Old Mennonite Church, and stand high in the community.
      Amaziah B. Eby, who has charge of the machine shop connected with his father's property at Paradise, has made himself quite a reputation as a master at his calling, and has worked in some of the leading shops of the section, notably at Hagerstown. He is regarded as a young man of far more than the ordinary promise, and much is expected of him.
