      Dieter Eby Newman (261)

      I found his place of death in Ancestry under "Biographical Annals of Lancaster County. It also states he was a man of superior mental and moral attainments, though quiet and unostentatious in manner. He took a deep interest in the cause of education before the free school sytem was established.

      CHRISTIAN EBY, deceased. The Eby family is one of the oldest and best known in Lancaster county, and among its noted representatives a century ago was Bishop Peter Eby. Christian was the second son of this well known bishop and was born on the homestead at Eby's Curve in Salisbury township, Aug. 22, 1795. He was a life long farmer and remained on a portion of the old homestead until 1847, when he removed to Strasburg township and there spent the remainder of his life, dying in 1877, aged eighty-one years. He was a man of superior mental and moral attainments, though quiet and unostentatious in manner. Before the free school system was established he took a deep interest in the cause of education and served in the capacity of trustee. But though public-spirited, progressive and the strong advocate of law and order, he was content to live his own quiet, individual life, and did not seek public office nor public prominence.
      When a young man he married Miss Rebecca Witwer, a native of Earl township, daughter of David and Mary (Rife) Witwer. To Christian and Rebecca Eby were born a family of twelve children, namely: Mariah, widow of Henry Brackbill, residing in Paradise township, south of Leaman Place; Margaret, who died unmarried, at the age of seventy-two years; David, who resides on the old homestead in Strasburg township; Elizabeth, unmarried; Levi, a resident of Lancaster city; Rebecca, wife of Henry Rohrer, of Hagerstown, Md.; Samuel, a sketch of whom appears below; Benjamin, a resident of East Lampeter township; Catherine, wife of Emanuel Neff, a resident of Strasburg township; Emanuel; Peter, who was killed in childhood; and Anna, who died in infancy. The parents were devout members of the Mennonite Church.
