Jacob Eberle    

JACOB EBERLE, retired farmer, post-office Mercer, was born December 7, 1810, in Wittenburg, Germany. His parents, George Leonard and Doratha (Munce) Eberle, immigrated to this country in 1829 and settled in Columbiana County, Ohio, where the father engaged in farming and making baskets. They subsequently settled near Sandy Lake, where they died, he in 1860 and she in 1841. Their two children were Jacob and Doratha, who married Stephen Yourdan and lives in Noble County, Ind. The parents were Lutherans. Jacob Eberle was educated at a seminary in his native country, and learned the trade of shoemaker. August 28, 1828, he engaged at his trade in Philadelphia, where he continued with earnest efforts till 1830, when he was married to Mary A. Aberle, and at once the happy couple set out on an extended wedding trip to Petersburg, Ohio, a distance of over 500 miles, every foot of which they walked. Mr. Eberle carried his shoemaker’s tools with him, and when a job could be secured on the way availed himself of the opportunity to make a few pennies. When they landed in Petersburg they had about $5. He at once secured work at his trade, and in three years they went to Milltown, in what is now Mahoning County, Ohio, where he worked at his trade. Six years later they came to Mercer County, and settled near Sandy Lake. In 1847 they moved to the farm where he now resides. Mrs. Eberle died in March, 1887, and was the mother of the following children: Elizabeth, born July 2, 1834; William, born March 15, 1836, was in Company F, One Hundred and Thirty-ninth Pennsylvania Volunteers, and was killed at the battle of the Wilderness; Louesa, born December 20, 1837; Charles, born September 29, 1839, was in the Fifty-seventh Pennsylvania Volunteers; Mary, born May 24, 1841; Emily, born December 23, 1842; Henry, born February 8, 1845; Amanda, born December 17, 1847; David, born November 18, 1849; James A., born December 25, 1852, and Joseph, born October 28, 1854. John Eberle married Kate Rice, a daughter of Daniel Rice, of West Salem Township, and has four children: Lizzie, Charles, Carrie and Fred. He has worked some at the shoemaker’s trade and at carpentering. The latter trade be followed awhile at Greenville where he was working on wagons. He now conducts a farm of sixty-three acres, and he and his wife are members of the Second Presbyterian Church of Mercer. Jacob Eberle has served as township treasurer, collector and school director.
