HNE (Henry N. Eby) Death Record, 1858 - 1918

HNE (Henry N. Eby) Death Record, 1858 - 1918
Henry N. Eby Death Record Files Record of deaths (not obituaries) compiled chiefly by Henry N. Eby from 1858-1909. A handful of deaths were recorded by Henry’s son, Amos F. Eby from 1909-1918. The book primarily records the deaths of Eby’s friends and relations in the area of Mount Joy, Rapho, and Penn Townships (Lancaster County, Pa.). Eby often also recorded cause of death, residence, and occupation of the deceased. Each file below represents one spread from the Henry N. Eby Death Record Book, which is part of the Henry N. Eby Personal Papers housed at the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society. The book entries and corresponding files are arranged alphabetically by surname and sub-arranged chronologically. To find an entry in the record book, either browse to the relevant surname/time period section or use the online indexes. The entire death record was transcribed and published, with additional notations, in the January and April 2000 issues of Pennsylvania Mennonite Heritage.
