from the same book as the previous posting, but from page 930

"James B. Eby, M.D., is of German descent, his grandfather, Abram Eby, having been a resident of Carlisle, Cumberland County, Pa. His children were Jason W., Henry, Charles, Cyrus, and Nimrod, of whom the last-named, and father of Dr. Eby, was born in Carlisle, and in youth removed to New Bloomfield, Perry County, when he became an apprentice to the printer's trade and continued in the office of the "Perry County Democrat" until his death, in 1847, in the 37th year of his age. His wife was Eliza Drexler of York, Pa, whose children are Mary (wife of John H. Sheivley, editor of the "People's Advocate", of Perry County); Ellen, who died in childhood; Annie, who died in early youth; James B.; and William. James B. Eby was born on the 24th of February, 1840, in New Bloomfield, Perry County, and received his primary education at the common schools, after which he became a pupil of the New Bloomfield Academy.....(quite a bit about his Civil War service)....Dr. James B. Eby was, on the 18th of March, 1875, married to Emma S., daughter of John and Ellen A. Toland, of the same county, who died November 29, 1881. Their children are a son, Charles, born February 10, 1876, and a daughter, Bertie, born March 2, 1880."
