  • Notes 
    • Jacob B. Eby, "the seventh son of Bishop Benjamin Eby, was born March 24th, 1826. After his marriage, in September, 1845, to Lucy Kauffman (born February 26th, 1830, and died September 24th, 1877), he moved on his farm three miles north of the town of Waterloo, Ontario, where he resided for a number of years. He afterwards went into the milling business in partnership with his brother, Elias, having purchased Barnabas Devitt's interest in the firm of Eby & Devitt, Bridgeport, Ontario. In 1867 he sold his interest in the Bridgeport Mills and purchased the Salem Mills where he carried on business for some years. Some time within the years 1875-76 he disposed of his Salem property and moved to the town of Waterloo where his wife, Lucy Kauffman died. On September 16th, 1878, he was married a second time to Elizabeth Schill (born May 12th, 1848), to whom his youngest child was born. He died December 21st, 1882. He had a large family"
