      JOSEPH EABY, a venerable representative of the agricultural interests of Lancaster county, is now living a retired life in Leacock township, where he was born Aug. 23, 1818, a son of Jacob and Susanna (Miller) Eaby. The father, who was a farmer in his later years, began life as a blacksmith. He died in Leacock township, in 1842, at the age of sixty-five years; his widow lived until 1863, when she, too, passed away, at the advanced age of eighty-two. Their ashes repose in the Eaby burying ground in Monterey, Pa. They were members of the German Baptist Church, and their modest and honest lives adorned their religious professions. Jacob and Susanna Eaby had the following family: (1) Moses married Susannah Kurtz; (2) Maria married Daniel Esbenshade; (3) Peter married Nancy Ranck; (4) Daniel married Caroline Bare; (5) Hannah married John Ranck; (6) Lydia married Isaac Bare: (7) Joseph; (8) Anna died unmarried at the age of seventy-six; (9) Susanna died at the age of seventy-five, unmarried; (10) Jacob married Martha Groff. All the above family are dead, excepting the one whose career forms the subect of this writing.

      The paternal grandparents of Joseph Eaby were Jacob and Hannah (Leterin) Eaby, who were farmer folk of Lancaster county. Jacob Eaby was born July 18, 1728, and on Jan. 15, 1753, married Hannah Leterin, who was born Oct. 5, 1733. They had the following family: (1) Anna, born Nov. 27, 1753; (2) Peter, born Feb. 18, 1755; (3) Joseph, born Oct. 5, 1758: (4) Daniel, born Dec. 15, 1760; (5) Christiana, born April 15, 1763; (6) Elizabeth, born Sept. 3, 1765; (7) Benjamin, born Nov. 30, 1767; (8) Magdeline, born Aug. 4, 1770; (9) Barbara, born Feb. 30, 1773; (10) Jacob, born Nov. 9, 1776, and his name appears above as the father of Joseph Eaby.

      Joseph Eaby is a single man, and made his home with his parents as long as they lived. He has continued to farm the old homestead in Leacock township for many years. In 1880 he retired from active labor. For one year he was supervisor, and is a Republican. In the local affairs of Leacock township he has filled a prominent place, and is very well-to-do. Many friends are about him, and he is much esteemed in the community where his creditable career has been run.
