  • Notes 
    • Abraham Eby, "the sixth son of Bishop Benjamin Eby, was born on the old homestead, November 21st, 1823. On April 30th, 1843, he was married to Lucy Hembling who was born August 9th, 1822. Soon after their marriage they moved on a farm two and one-half miles east of Berlin. This farm is now owned by Henry Cressman. Here they resided for nearly five years, when they moved on another farm two and one-half miles north of the town of Waterloo where they lived for about five years, then they sold out and moved to the village of Bridgeport, where they resided until his death which took place August 21st, 1885. His widow still owns and occupies the old homestead. They had a family of eleven children"
