"GABRIEL EBERHARD was born in Union County, Pennsylvania, May 28, 1815, and is the third of the fourteen children born to BARNET and SUSANNA (HENRY) EBERHARD, natives of Pennsylvania, and of German descent. BARNET EBERHARD in early years was a hatter, but later became a cooper, which trade he ran in connection with farming in Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, where he still lives. He was a soldier in the war of 1812; was married in his native State, and is a member of the Lutheran Church. GABRIEL EBERHARD lived with his parents until twenty-one, learning farming and coopering; he then farmed on shares in Mifflin County for five years, when he bought a saw mill, which he ran until 1852; he then sold and moved to Huntingdon County; a year later, he returned to Mifflin County and bought a farm, and engaged in making shingles in connection with farming, until December, 1856, when he came to Union Township, this county, bought forty acres of land which, in the spring of 1869, he sold, and came to this township and purchased the eighty acres on which he now resides. August 28, 1836, he married ANNA M. KNEPP, of Union County, Pennsylvania, who bore him five children, and died April 7, 1846, a member of the Reformed Presbyterian Church. October 15, 1853, he married MRS. CATHERINE (YETER) KNEPP, a native of Germany, and to this union have been left four children. Both MR. and MRS. EBERHARD are members of the German Baptist Church, and in politics he is a Democrat."
