2.  Anon.  1893.  Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania.  J.H. Beers & Co., Chicago.  On p. 537:
MRS. NANCY EALY, widow of Martin Ealy, was born September 10, 1828, in Greene county, Penn., a daughter of Benjamin McConnell, of that county.  On June 20, 1846, she was married to Martin Ealy, an industrious and successful farmer of East Finley township, Washington county.  Martin Ealy was born January 15, 1826, in East Finley township, and passed his early youth in assisting his father in the duties of the farm.  On attaining the age of maturity he was united in marriage, as above related, with Miss Nancy McConnell, and to their union were born children, of which the follwoing is a brief record: Rosanna, born April 20, 1847, in early womanhood was married to Albert Sampson, and died October 14, 1870; Silas, born June 10, 1849, is now living in East Finley township, Washington Co., Penn., married to Belle Almus; Martha Jane, born August 10, 1851, is the wife of James Supler, and they reside in West Alexander, Washington Co., Penn.; Clarissa, born March 17, 1853, married George Smith, and resides in Greene county, Penn.; Lucinda, born December 10, 1854, is the wife of John Hunt, and is also living in Greene county; Hannah Minerva, born December 25, 1857, and is living in West Alexander, Donegal township, this county, wife of Wilson Rockey; John Richard, born June 29, 1859, is married to Addie Whitam, their home being also in West Alexander, this county; Mary Ellen, born December 28, 1861, married to John Burns, and lives in East Finley township, this county; Juda Ann, born January 22, 1865, is married to John Booth, and lives in West Alexander, Penn.; Sarah Catherine and Ida Florine (twins), born November 17, 1868, died in infancy; Martin Ellsworth, born October 26, 1869, is united in marriage with Miss Addie Sprowls (they are residents of East Finley township); James Albert, born March 25, 1872, is living at home with his widowed mother and has attended to the work of the farm since the death of his father.

After his marriage Mr. Ealy settled on his father's farm, which is situated in East Finley township, opposite East Finley postoffice, and there made his home sixteen years when he purchased the well-improved farm upon which his widow resides.  Mr. Ealy was a very successful farmer and a man whose death was deeply mourned by the community in which he lived.  He was a member of the U.B. Church at Fairmount and contributed liberally to its support.  In politics, he was an active worker in the Republican party.  Mr. Ealy died March 19, 1885, and his widow now manages the farm with much skill.  She is a member of the Baptist Church at Enon.
