There are 3 Ebel children recorded on the 1767 census of Schönchen. They are presumed to be siblings.

Orphan Joseph Ebel (age 15) is recorded there in Household No. 9 along with the Georg Heinrich Schneider family. The 1767 census does not record a relationship between the Ebel and Schneider families.

Johannes Ebel (age 19) and his sister Elisabeth (age 17) are recorded on the 1767 census of Schönchen in Household No. 16 along with their stepfather Johann Heinrich Kuhn.

The 1767 census does not record from where these Ebel children came.
