FUNERAL SERVICES OVER REMAINS OF THE AGED LADY
The funeral of Mrs. Sarah Ealy was held Saturday afternoon. Services were held at her home, 540 West Fourth street, the Rev. D. Frank Garland officiating.
Mrs. Sarah Ealy, before her marriage, Sarah Kneisley, was born March 2, 1818, at Carlisle, Pennsylvania. When she was three years of age her father brought his family upon a flat boat down the Ohio river and settled near Dayton. Here she grew up and in 1839 married Dr. Elijah Ealy. In 1851 her husband died suddenly, leaving her a widow with four children—three daughters and one son. She was an active woman, of strong personality, decisive in her conclusions, and energetic in carrying them out. Being of Pennsylvania German stock, she was by inheritance a Lutheran and remained firmly attached to that church throughout her life. When she was 76 years old she fell and fractured her right hip, but owning to a vigorous constitution she recovered sufficiently to get about the house upon a crutch, and took an active interest in household matters almost to the last hours of her life. She died at the age of 82 from exhaustion, caused by her advanced age.

DEATH MAKES AN END TO A PROMISING CAREER
Death ended a promising career Wednesday evening when Attorney Hazen Eikenberry, son of Superintendent Eikenberry of the local free employment bureau, succumbed to a complication of ailments at Spokane, Wash. Five weeks ago the popular young attorney went to Spokane in the hope of being restored to health. His illness dated from last fall, when he was stricken with typhoid fever and lay all winter. He was apparently on the road to recovery when complications developed that soon proved to be hopeless. As a last resort he set out for Spokane, where he hoped that the climatic change and the professional attention of his brother, a practicing physician of that city, would restore him to his once robust health. Soon after arriving at Spokane he became bedfast, and his condition grew worse at an alarming rate until hope was finally relinquished. Mr. Eikenberry was born in Huntington County, Indiana, on November 21, 1870, and was nearly 38 years of age at the time of his demise.
In his youth he removed with his parents to Preble county, where he graduated from the Eaton high school and later served as a deputy in the office of the county recorder. Subsequently he graduated from the Cincinnati law school. Following the completion of his law course he practiced his profession in Chicago for a time, and later located in Dayton. In this city he had been a member of the bar for the past ten years. No young barrister ever won more esteem by his personal and professional attributes than did Eikenberry. Enemies were unknown to him and everybody with whom he came in contact became his friend. Death [ ___ illegible word] at the height of his career.
A widow—formerly Miss Ella B. Madden—and four children, all girls, survive him. The oldest child is 9 and the youngest about 4 months. The remains will be shipped to Dayton and will arrive here Sunday afternoon, the funeral probably being held Monday.
A meeting of the bar association will be held Friday afternoon to adopt resolutions on his death.
Eikenberry was a Spanish-American war veteran, a member of the K. of P. order and a member of the Sons of Veterans.

Mr. Abraham Eversole, who died at his residence near New Lebanon on the 20th last, was one of the oldest as well as one of the most respected citizens of Montgomery county. He had served more than his three score and ten, being aged 73 years, 5 months and 11 days. He was born in 1804 near Shephardstown, Jefferson county, Virginia, where he spent his boyhood. During his minority he was apprenticed as a weaver, and he worked at the loom. But his inclination was for farming, and when he attained his majority he commenced this occupation, at which he worked throughout his whole life and until within three weeks of his death. When he grew up to manhood he left that part of the beautiful Potomac valley in which he had been reared and located at Hagerstown, Maryland. Here he was married to Mary Logue, with whom he removed to Ohio, but who died shortly after their settlement in this state. There were two children by this first marriage. One is dead. The other, Mr. George Eversole is a prominent farmer, living near Dodson, Ohio, sixteen miles north of this city.
Mr. Eversole was well deserving of the title of a pioneer. He came to this State and made his home in this county in 1832. For 45 years he was an honorable and enterprising citizen of Montgomery county. Mr. Eversole was the last living member of his father's family, with one exception, Mrs. Elizabeth Roop, who resides near Woodburn in this county. In 1834 Mr. Eversole was married to Margaret Folkerth. By the second marriage there were ten children, all of whom reside on farms in this county, with one exception, Mr. H. C. Eversole, who is a member of the firm of Eversole & Ries in this city.
All of these ten children are living. Seven are married and three are single. Mr. Eversole also left thirteen grand-children. The family has been fortunate in remaining en toto in the same county.
Mr. Eversole's second wife died in 1872. He leaves eleven children, who are all grown up. During his life sickness was an "ill that he knew not of." He was never confined to the house a day by sickness until within the past fortnight. the week previous to his death he visited his son, Mr. H. C. Eversole, in this city. Mr. Eversole was an excellent neighbor and a valuable member of the community. During his life he was generous and industrious. He lived a [consistent?] and straightforward life. His wife and most of his children are identified with the Dunkard Baptist Church.
Not himself a member of any creed, he was a regular church-going man, and a benevolent giver. He presented the ground and otherwise aided the society in building "Eversole Church," which is located on his farm and which bears his name. At this church, on Tuesday, the funeral services took place. There was a very large attendance. The services were conducted by Revs. Garver and Younce. Interment at the church cemetery, which is also located on the Eversole homestead.
Mr. Eversole has been a reader of the Journal for 37 years, having subscribed for the paper in 1840, and ever since continued taking it.
