John C. Eaby
Journal History, Supp. after 31 Dec. 1848, p. 5 (a non-contemporary typescript list) and Pioneers and Prominent Men erroneously list Eaby as coming in the 1848 Brigham Young company. The Camp of Israel roster, which was taken at the time of travel, clearly lists him and his daughter as belonging to the 1849 Silas Richards company. His wife died in 1849, prior to their departure, in St. Louis.
The 3 August 1850 Journal History article, documents John volunteering to return to his homeland to serve a mission. Though it is not explicitly stated, it is assumed that he was returning from that mission while traveling with the John Higbee 1852 Company.
Birth date confirmed by Millcreek Ward records at the time of a rebaptism on 25 April 1858.
