Anton Eble
I had added a bit in a flower on Marge's entry as she will not enter an obit, then noticed you had added your entry and transferred my bit. I will delete it if you care to add Anton's obit. Thanks, Kay

Anton Eble died at his residence five north west of Maroa on Dunday Feb. 16, at three o'clock p.m., having been ill for a few days. Death was due to pneumonia. So sudden was Mrs. Eble's death that very few of his neighbors and friends knew of his illness. For thirty years Mr. Eble had been a farmer in the vicinity of Maroa. He was a native of Germany having been born at Baden Baden April 26, 1829, being in his 73rd year. In 1851, when a young man of 22, he crossed the Atlantic and went first to St. Louis. He stopped there for a short time and then went to Morgan county, Il. where he engaged in farming. March 22, 1853 he was united in marriage to Mary Ann Dunham of that county.
They continued their residence there until the spring of 1872, when the family moved to a farm of 80 acres three miles and a half northeast of Maroa which Mr. Eble had previously purchased. Here was their home until the spring of 1883, when Mr. Eble sold the frm to the late John Grundy and purchased the farm where the family has since resided.
Mr. Eble was the father of six children. All are living except one son who died in infancy. The others are Mrs. Ellen Goodwin and John Eble, Clarion, Iowa; Miss Eliza, Decatur; Joseph, Maroa; and Mrs. Clara Lyles, Pawnee, Il. Mrs. Eble's death occurred one year and two days prior to her husband's.
Mr. Eble was a citizen of exceptional worth. He took a great interest in political matters and was familiar with the topics of national interest. He was intensely American. Prior to 1896 Mr. Eble affiliated with the Democratic party. He was a great admirer of Stephen A. Douglas. Mr. Eble came to the United States without money or friends, but he went to work and by diligent toil accumulated a competency enabling him to spend his declining years in the enjoyment of a well earned repose. The funeral services were held at the family residence at ten o'clock Tuesday, services being conducted by Rev. D.T. Miles. Interment was in the Maroa cemetery.

Anton Eble
Hi, I am the Great Great Grandson of Roman Eble who supposedly had a 1/2 brother Anton Eble. Do you know much about Anton's family? Roman immigrated thru New Orleans in 1854 and made his way to St. Clair county and finally settled in Montgomery County and died in 1893 in Nokomis. Any information would be much appreciated. Thanks, Brad
