Eby Cemetery Lexington (Elizabethtown), Lancaster County, Pennsylvania



 



Tree: Eby/Aebi and Bernethy Family
Notes: From the "Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage" April 1986.

"Descendants of the immigrant Theodorus Eby, who came to America from Switzerland about 1715, were a part of the group of Mennonites who migrated to Waterloo County, Ontario, Canada, during the very early 1800's. Among those that migrated was Bishop Benjamin Eby (1785-1853)whose paretns and grandparents lived, died, and are buried in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The cemetery in which they are buried stands in a hillside field behind the home built by Christian Eby (1698-1756) and his wife, Elizabeth Mayer. The datestone reads: "Christian Ebi [and] Elizabetha 1754." The home sits along Hammer Creek at the junction of Reifsnyder and Snavely Mill roads in Elizabeth Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and is believed to be the the second Eby home in America. Both Christian and Elizabeth are buried there along qith their son and his wife, Christian Eby (1734-1807 and Catherine Bricker.

Most of the graves, surrounded by an iron grill fence, are marked by simple limestones along with a few red samdstones and several unmarked field stone. In one corner are piled approximatey a dozen broken foot stones. However, the cemetery us regularly mowed and trimmed by Eby descendants as a result of a perpetual care fund."
