In 1790 Berks Co. I haveinfo on a Mary Ebling head of household (presumably a widow). She is probably the widow of your Johannes Ebling b. 1725 (Berks Co., PA?). In the household were 2 other females and 3 males 16 years and upward. I fell that Mary would have to have been born 1754 or before (possibly long before) if these were her children. this woman is probably your maria Philapena Yager b. 1735 (in Schuylkill Co., PA?).

Living nearby was Jacob Ebling with 1 male 16 years and up and 2 females in household --presumably Jacob, his wife, and a daughter. This was probably a son of Mary (and Johannes).

Also in Berks Co. at that time was Paul Ebling. His household record indicated 2 males 16 years and up, 3 males under 16,and 2 females --presumably Paul, his wife, one son 16 and up, 3 sons under 16, and a daughter. Paul was probably another son of Mary.

I have collected census info on the Eblings of Berks Co. up to 1840 -- there are many. However, they all appear to be the descendants of Mary and her husband. I found no early Eblings in New Jersey, although early New Jersey census records before 1830 were destroyed by fire. Except for Berks Co., I found none elsewhere in PA until 1840 when Daniel, Robert, and John appear in Philadelpia, and some others elsewhere (possibly all descendants of Mary(and Johannes?)).

Do you know who was the father of Johannes Ebling b. 1725 in PA? Was he born in PA? What was the origin of Eblings in America?

Regards -- John Eveland (Efling)
