History Made by Susanah or Susanna Eby in 1847. Susanna Stambaugh was born March 7, 1811 in Pennsylvania. She married Michael Eby on August 1, 1833 in Stark County, Ohio. She died September 17 or 19, 1889 in Huntington, Indiana. She was buried on September 20, 1889 in Wabash County, Indiana. The Quilt was brought to Nebraska by covered wagon in 1886 by the maker's granddaughter, Elizabeth Miller Sageser. Elizabeth came with her husband, Albert, and his father and brothers' families. They took adjoining homesteads near Chambers, Nebraska and built sod houses. Elizabeth and Albert had a 16 foot sod house. They later moved to Stuart, Nebraska, Newport, Nebraska and Osmond, Nebraska.
