From Family Bible In possession of Tobias Kfeider, husband of Celesa above. * There are things of Interest to say ibout Joseph J. Kreidor, which we shall say and then take up his children. Joseph was the only son of John Kreider, Jr., and he received the iomo farm entire. He was a man ntorested in school and church. Krelder's Srliool Near the Tunnel Joseph J. Kreider, yeoman, and his wife Lydia, on Dec. 30, 1848, transferred to Henry Tlce, Henry Shaeffer, Christian Brandt, Michael Hoffman, John Bohr, and Samuel Miller, direc- Lor of the common schools of North Lebanon township, 20 perches of land, which was part of the ,land which Joseph Kreider received from his father John Kreider. It joined land of Abraham Bomberger. We are inclined to think it was on the corner of the road leading from the Kreider home to the road passing through the overhead railroad bridge. It was called Kreider's school. This was likely the first nchool of the neighborhood under the common school system. Those who road our articles on the Schaeffer family, will remember that Henry Schaeffer was the first school director of his local school under the new and Winters, no ford Joel Brethren, and of d. system. The six gentlemen Just bu,t Henry and his second are buried at Cedar Hill ceme- «£tery, Fredericksburg. Henry was a sTV^&nner near Fredericksburg.

Hon. Henry Snavely taught singing school in this house. Kreider's school likely succeeded Kellerls school. We find that Tobias Kreider, doubtless Tobias of Cleona, trustee by Act of Assembly passed in 1850, sold all that messuage or tenement, school property on the road from Lebanon to Harper's tavern, being rendered useless by the new school law, inasmuch as it was close to the line between North Lebanon and North Annville townships. Jacob Keller and wife Mary had conveyed niany years before this, land for school purposes, but the deed had been lost, hence the Act of Assembly.

It seems evident that Joseph's first wife, Lydia Long, died before ho retired from farming, that he buried her in the family cemetery and erected a tombstone at her grave. Later when he became interested In the Ebenezer cemetery, he evidently re-' moved her body along with the bodies of his parents, and provided for her a new tombstone in the new resting place. The flrst stone is used, face down, as a step stone in the walk, at the front porch of the Kreider homestead. Soon after 18.72, if not in that yoar, Joseph J. Kreider retired from fanning and built the brick house 'diagonally across from the Uhrich house. The Ullrich house is tho oldest house in Ebenezer, built about 160 yours ago. It is log weather-boarded". It stands on what was a. tract of eight acres, between Yingst land on the north and Light land on the south. How it got in between seems now in- explainable. About a square north of the Uhrich log house, Htoocl another log house on the Yingst estate. By far the highest tree in the neighborhood, —perhaps a poplar—stood in front of tho Yingst .'house, ' It 'finally fell before the blast. 'It was'estimated at 200 feet in height. The United Brethren church was built here in 1371, likely chiefly through the influence of Joseph Kreider who was a trustee. At this time there was only one other house hore beside the Uhrich house—the house of Moses Gingrich. The John Fields 22, 13 6 ' ' Lloyd Gibble, school boy. JOHN HENRY BICKSLER, !'lll|0re-. 'ro.

Everything must have a name, and Joseph suggested that they call a this place "Ebenezer." The Yingst farm was here, originally about 250 acres, now thrae farms —those of Daniel Speichar, Amos Meyer, and Norman C. Albert. The "Light farm was here, now largely in the cemetery.
