      SIM EBY (deceased) was a miller, and followed his trade in the northern part of Lancaster county for many years. Born at Hammer Creek, he was reared on the farm, and was a son of Christian Eby. Learning the milling trade early in life, after his marriage he bought what was known as the Cedar Run Mill, now termed the Martin Mill, located in Earl township. Five years after his marriage he sold this property and bought a farm in Leacock township, consisting of 132 acres, located near Gordonville. This was his home for thirteen years, when he sold out and removed to the old Frantz farm in Leacock township, comprising 132 acres, and there he lived until his death, in 1881, at the age of seventy-two years. He owned four farms and bore a reputation as a progressive and successful farmer. In the Mennonite Church, to which he belonged, he served as a deacon.
      Sim Eby and Anna Frantz, a daughter of Jacob Frantz, of Leacock township, were married early in life, and lived together many years. She died at the age of eighty, the mother of eleven children: Jacob F., of Intercourse; Elias, a resident of Strasburg; Benjamin, a miller of Paradise; Christian and Samuel, who are dead; Amos, a resident of Paradise; Ezra, Henry and Joseph, who are all dead; John H., living on the old homestead in Leacock township; Lizzie, unmarried.
      Amos Eby was born Aug. 29, 1843, and was reared on the old homestead. His education was secured in the public schools, and he remained at home working for his father until he was twenty-nine years of age. On Oct. 31, 1872, he married Miss Anna McKillips, a daughter of Daniel and Christiann (Denlinger) McKillips. Mrs. Eby was born in Upper Leacock township March 24, 1848, and is the mother of one daughter, Laura M., born Sept. 2, 1880. The family are members of the Presbyterian Church.
      After Amos Eby was married he located on the north end of the old homestead in Leacock township, where he remained engaged in farming twenty-four years. He gave considerable attention to dairying, and long had a milk route in Paradise. During these years he handled farm implements and fertilizers quite extensively. Some years ago he purchased a lot in Paradise, where he built a fine residence and made his home. Mr. Eby is extensively engaged in the manufacture of farm fertilizers, some of his make being widely known, such as the Pequea "Phospate," "Economy," the "Ammoniated," and the "Farmers' Mixture." His goods are sold in Lancaster county, and the business is a very prosperous one.
      Mrs. Eby has been an invalid for twenty years, and has suffered greatly, though her suffering has not proved sufficient to break down the sweetness of her disposition and the unselfishness of her heart.
