  • Notes 
    • From Ezra E. Eby Book

      Benjamin was born Sept. 18, 1783 in Montgomery Co., Pa where he followed farming. During the great financial depression of 1816-1827 many farmers failed financially and, in order to pay their debts, they sold their farms at great sacrifice. With whatever money they had left, they winded their way to Canada where land could be had cheap and thus made another attempt to gain a free home. As a rule, all these parties in a very few years were the posessors of valuable farms. Benjamin moved to Canada with his family in 1825.

      They left Montgomery on May 6, and with two double horse teams and one single horse, crossed the Niagara River from Lewiston to Queenston on a large flat boat and winded their way up to Dundas and through the Beverly Swamp to Waterloo County arriving at Jacob Rosenburger's near Preston where they made a stay of 3 days. Then they moved on a farm 2 miles west of Waterloo. Here he resided until the spring of 1826 when he moved to N. Dumfries Twp. about 1 mile east of Roseville where he had purchased a most beautiful farm of about 200 acres, then nearly all forest. Here Banjamin died Sept. 10, 1879.

      He was a member of the mennonite church and lived a strictly moral life. Principles of Christianity were always foremost in his dealings with his fellow men. His advice to his grandchildren was always good. "My earliest recollection of him was when he held us on his knee and instructed us to be a good boy. Three of his sons and a number of gradsons and great grand sons entered the ministry.

      On Sept. 2, 1802 he married Elizabeth Dettweiller, daughter of Jacob and Margaret (Harley) Dettweiller.
