Sarah Ealy
Dayton Journal – September 13, 1900


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.

Hazen Eikenberry
Dayton Evening News – July 16, 1908, Pg 14


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.
