      Eby, Ezra E. (1895). A biographical history of Waterloo township and other townships of the county: being a history of the early settlers and their descendants, mostly all of Pennsylvania Dutch origin: as also much other unpublished historical information chiefly of a local character. Berlin [Kitchener, Ont.]: [s.n.].

      _____________________________

      One of the icons of Doon Heritage Crossroads' collection, as an example, is the Moses Eby desk, made in 1817 by the apprentice cabinetmaker Moses Eby, who had emigrated to Waterloo County from Pennsylvania. Its elaborate marquetry, inlay and other construction details attest to the skill and fine workmanship of Eby and many of those early builders who crafted beautiful furniture without benefit of mechanical power.
