    • CASSIUS M. EBY.
      Cassius M. Ebv is a prominent attorney of Laramie to whom opportunity has ever been the call to action. With no special advantages at the outset of his career, he turned his face toward the future, and imbued with a laudable ambition, he has advanced steadily toward the goal of success, making for himself a creditable place in the ranks of the legal profession in his adopted state.
      Mr. Eby comes to Wyoming from the middle west, his birth having occurred in Cass county, Michigan, July 31, 1862. His father, Peter Eby, was a native of Ohio and a representative of one of the old families of that state of Swiss origin. In the latter part of the sixteenth century his ancestors emigrated from Switzerland to Germany and thence made their way into England, whence came the founder of the American branch of the family, Theodoras Eby, who arrived in the new world about 1725 and settled in Pennsylvania. The great-greatgrandfather of Cassius M. Eby was a soldier of the American army in the Revolutionary war. His descendants became early settlers of Virginia and also of Stark county, Ohio. Peter Eby, the father, was born in the latter state and removed thence to Michigan when a youth of eighteen years. He followed agricultural pursuits in Michigan and was quite successful in the conduct of his farm. His political endorsement was given to the whig party until its dissolution, when he joined the ranks of the republican party and became one of its active supporters. He died in Cass county, Michigan, in October, 1892, when he had reached the age of seventy-two years. His wife bore the maiden name of Margaret Miller and was also a native of Ohio, of German descent. She became the mother of three children, of whom a daughter died in infancy. The brother, Elias Eby, is a resident of Boulder, Colorado.
      The other member of the family is Cassius M. Eby of this review, who began his education in the rural schools of Michigan and pursued his more advanced literary course in the Valparaiso (Ind.) University, from which he was graduated with the Bachelor of Arts degree in 1889 and with the Bachelor of Science degree in 1887. He also won the LL. B. degree in 1891, having completed a course in the law department of the University of Valparaiso, supplemented by post-graduate work in the University of Michigan. His early life to the age of eighteen years was spent upon his father's farm and his first essay in professional activity was made in the schoolroom. He devoted four years to the profession of teaching in the schools of Cass county, Michigan, and after preparing for the bar entered upon the active practice of law, opening an office in Cassopolis, Michigan, where he remained until 1903. He then removed to the west, settling first in Boulder, Colorado, where he remained until 1910, when he went to Laramie, where he has since remained in active and continuous practice. His position at the bar is a recognized one. He prepares his cases with thoroughness and skill, and his devotion to his clients' interests is proverbial. During the eight years of his connection with the Laramie bar he has been accorded a very gratifying clientage. He belongs to the Wyoming State Bar Association and enjoys the goodwill and high regard of his colleagues in the profession.
      In Cass county, Michigan, in 1883, Mr. Eby was united in marriage to Miss Eva Shelhamer, a daughter of Aaron and Mary (Dibble) Shelhamer, who belonged to one of the old pioneer families of Michigan. To Mr. and Mrs. Eby were born three children: LeRoy, now deceased; Eugene D.; and Mabel Evelyn, the wife of A. R. Lauk, whom she married on the 12th of August, 1917. All of the children were born in Michigan. Having lost his first wife by death, Mr. Eby was again married, April 21, 1913, in Hutchinson, Kansas, his second union being with Miss Estelle Hitchcox, a native of Michigan and a daughter of Harvey and Emorette Hitchcox. The Hitchcoxs were also one of the pioneer families of the Wolverine state. The father of Mrs. Eby is now deceased.
      In his political views Mr. Eby is a republican and while living in Michigan he served for six years, from 1892 until 1898, as circuit court commissioner and was also prosecuting attorney of Cass county from 1896 until 1900. Fraternally he is connected with the Masons. He became a member of Baccus Lodge, F. & A. M., and also of Kingsbury Chapter, R. A. M., in Michigan, and he is a member of the Eastern Star in Laramie. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the First Baptist church, in which he has served as a trustee and as deacon. For four years he filled the position of superintendent of the Sunday school and in religious work he has taken a very active and helpful part, doing all in his power to promote the growth of the church and extend its influence. His life is actuated by its teachings and therefore his entire career has measured up to high standards.
