Birth: 1840
Cumberland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 12, 1864
Sumter County

The son of James or Jonas W. & Anna Margaret (Scobey) Eby, in 1860 he was a tinsmith presumably living in Carlisle, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, where his parents resided and where he had lived in 1850. He stood 5' 5" tall and had dark hair and brown eyes.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted in Cumberland County April 21, 1861, mustered into federal service at Washington DC July 27 as a corporal with Co. A, 7th Pennsylvania Reserves (36th Pennsylvania Infantry), and promoted to sergeant December 7, 1861, and 1st sergeant July 4, 1862. Taken captive with his brother Henry at the battle of the Wilderness May 5, 1864, both were incarcerated at Andersonville, an experience that Van Buren Eby did not survive.
