      PETER R. EABY, now living retired in East Lampeter township, was born Sept. 25, 1841, in East Earl township, and was for many years identified with the prosperous farmers of Lancaster county.

      Peter Eaby, the father of our subject, was born Sept. 10, 1804, in Leacock township, this county, and was educated in the local public schools. In 1830 he wedded Miss Annie Runk, daughter of Jacob Runk, and to this union were born eleven children, three of whom died in infancy: Susan became the wife of Jacob Evans: Mary wedded Jacob Senich; Elias is a resident of Atlantic City; Annie is the wife of Aaron H. Bair; Peter R. is our subject; Adam is deceased; Elizabeth is the wife of Samuel G. Souder; Daniel, resides in Fetterville, Pa. The mother was a member of the Old Mennonite Church. Mr. Eaby in politics was a Republican, and he held the office of school director for some years.

      Peter R. Eaby remained at home with his parents until he was about twenty-eight years of age. His education was acquired in the common schools of the county. When he began farming for himself he followed that occupation two years on his father's farm, after which he moved to Paradise township and farmed there for ten years. He has since lived retired. Mr. Eaby is a member of the Old Mennonite Church. He has always affiliated with the Republican party in politics, and has held the office of tax collector for about twelve years.

      Our subject wedded Miss Annie Longenecker, of Lancaster county. They have no children. Mr. Eaby is one of Lancaster county's most progressive men, and he is very highly respected in the community in which he lives, a fact to which his long continuance in office, bears most convincing testimony. He is public-spirited, and is fully alive to all the best interests of his church and community.
