      Greetings,
      My husband and I recently purchased a house in Zionsville Lehigh County Pennsylvania. A title search by the mortgage company revealed to us that a Willis Eby and his wife Esther R. lived in our home at.... (for safety, I did not post the address)We are intersted in finding out the history behind our home, when it was built and about the folks who lived here. Would your Willis & Esther R. be the same folks who lived in my home in Zionsville, Pa?
      If so did your family have any connection to the Zionsville Bible Fellowship Church right next door? Formerly know as Zionsville Mennonite Brethern in Christ Church.
      Would love to chat with you if there is a connection or see pictures of the folks who lived in our home before us.
      Thank you for your kind patience in reading my unusual email.
      Have a wonderful day
      Blessings,
      Lisa Madsen

      Hey Mila,
      Thanks for your quick responses. Sorry I took so long in responding, since we purchased this home on June 30th, we have been very busy with the clean up and trying to decide which project we want to tackle first. I will have my son help me take a photo of our home and send it to you. I am hoping that a little reseach into the home will help us decide how to procede.
      . We are hoping to find out more history of our home. It is right next door to the Zionsville Bible Fellowship Church, previously Mennonite Brethern of Christ Church, a little digging on the internet, showed a Solomon Eby to be one of the founding Elders 1800's of the BF Church in Zionsville, although I have no positive proof the names may be to much of a coincidence not to be related albeit somehow distant...I want to be sure that the Willis who lived in my home is one and the same you have a photo of from Bethlehem Steel.
      Was his wife Esther R. Eby.( she is on the title search) I think I have to go to the Lehigh County Archives to go back a few more years.
      Also, Zionsville is about 15 minutes from Bethlehem and it would not be to far to travel for a job.
      Thank you for your help. I look forward to hearing more from you. Your website had a contact tab and directed me to your email link.
