    • JACOB EABY, The general farming interest of Salisbury township, Lancaster county, have a fitting representative in the person of Jacob Eaby, an ex-soldier who although in but the prime of life has attained prominence in the pursuit of agriculture and has secured for himself a competency. He was born May 18, 1846, in Intercourse, Leacock township, a son of Moses and Susannah (Kurtz) Eaby, the former of whom had been a merchant in that village for forty years.

      Jacob Eaby passed his boyhood days in aiding his father in his business and in attending school until a little over seventeen years old, when, seeing that the slavery propagandists of the South were determined to disrupt the Union rather than see their pet institution perish for want of new territory in which to nourish it, he enlisted, March 24, 1864, for three years, as a defender of the integrity of the States, provided the war was not sooner brought to a close. He was assigned to Co. C, Lieut. Cyrus L. Eckert; 79th P. V. I., and although he had a part in several skirmishes did not have an opportunity of being engaged in a regular battle, and was honorably discharged, unhurt, at Alexandria, Va., July 12, 1865, about three months after the close of the war.

      On returning from the army Mr. Eaby re-entered his father's store, where he remained three years; he then went to Kansas and entered 160 acres of land which, four months later, he abandoned. He then returned to his old home in Leacock township, Lancaster county, worked three years among the farmers, added to his savings and purchased his present home of fifty acres. At Lancaster, Oct. 10, 1871, Mr. Eaby married Miss Lucie E. Murr, the accomplished daughter of Isaac and Anna (Glouner) Murr, of East Earl township, but her own birth took place in Leacock township March 31, 1854. Isaac Murr was a blacksmith by trade, was greatly respected in his community during his long and useful life, and died March 27, 1898, at the age of seventy-two years; his wife died in 1863, when she was but forty-two years old. The remains of both were interred in Roland's Church cemetery, in Earl township. To Mr. and Mrs. Murr were born five children, namely : Lucie E., now Mrs. Eaby; Joseph, a blacksmith, in Leacock township; Maria, wife of Harry Grover, a milk dealer at Long Branch, N. J.; Anna, wife of Newton Hoar; and Ida, married to Henry Hoar, a blacksmith at Intercourse, Lancaster county. The paternal grandfather of Mrs. Eaby was Jacob Murr, a farmer of Lancaster county, and the maternal grandparents were Jacob and Anna Glouner, natives of Lancaster county, Pa., and Germany, respectively.

      To the marriage of Jacob and Lucie E. (Murr) Eaby have been born a family of thirteen children, all with the exception of Isaac W. still living, viz: Moses, a farmer in South Hermitage, Salisbury township, married to Anna Avers, who has borne him four children; Cora, wife of Frederick Heim, of Lancaster, is the mother of one child; Miss Cecelia M. lives in Philadelphia; Anna M. married J. Willis Martin, a jeweler, and is living in Savannah, Ga. ; Miss Mary E. resides in Philadelphia; Isaac W. died young; David K. lives in Lancaster; Gracie M.; Jason K. and A. Amanda are twins; Susan C.; and Samuel S. and Nellie B. are twins. The six last named are all at home.

      Mr. Eaby is an up-to-date agriculturist, and although his farm comprises but fifty acres it is one of the best tilled and most productive in the township of Salisbury. He thoroughly understands his calling and has always been industrious and thrifty. He is a genial, good-natured gentleman and counts his friends by the score, who all hold him in the highest esteem and admire him for his personal merit and his upright walk through life. In politics Mr. Eaby is a Republican.
