Father: Jacob E. Eberly 1793-1841
Mother: Catherine Eberly 1800-1833
Married Margaret E. Henry in 1848 believed to be 1st wife. Margaret was born in 1828 in Tennessee & died in Texas
Mary Armer-Armour is believed to be the 2nd wife and mother to Sam & Claude
1850 US Census Grimes County, TX, records show John to be age 23 & Margaret age 22.

4. Kate,
5. Liza,
6. Mortimore 1859
7. Minor 1861,
8. Virginia "Jenny" 1869

I believe this is a tin-type of John Elgin Eberly, a son of Jacob Eberly who married Catharine Elgin in Kentucky in 1818. I was fortunate to receive a photograph album that had belonged to my great-grandmother Sarah Ellen Banta England who was born in Kentucky in 1828 and died in Missouri in 1910. There were two tin-types in the book and all the other photos were on heavy cardboard stock. One of the tin-types has been proven to be Amacetta Eberly. I suspect this one is John Elgin Eberly.
