Would heartily suggest that you post this question to the Arner listserv (ARNER-L@rootsweb.com). There is more interest than answers about the identity of other Eberhardt immigrants and how Verena is related. Lots of good genealogists are listserv members. Also check out the *rner Genealogy Project website (www.geocities.com/~erner/gen/arner).

Bezahn (greetings),
Are you planning a reunion for 2003? If so please e-mail me at lonewlf99@aol.com as I would like to attend. I have early Eberhard family members from eastern Penna. No, we didn't capture them, but we did so with other white ancestors. We don't take scalps anymore, either. We are just nice guys now!
Wanishi (thank you),
