Grandma Eichelberger was then 74 years old and needed help especially when the automobile came out for transportation and over the busy time of the Lancaster Fair. Neighbors helped Grandma Eichelberger and Lizzie by bringing good food to eat while sitting at the toll gate on busy days. The toll fair from Oregon to Roseville was 12 cents. Going to church on Sunday was free. Sometimes people would get by without paying because Grandma Eichelberger would fall asleep on the job. Grandpa Eichelberger died at an early age, and Grandma was a Christian lady who raised seven children with the money she earned by keeping toll. Once a month Lizzie had the job helping to carry the money bag with mostly pennies to the pike directors, John Shriner and Lem Shirk, who lived about a mile from the toll gate.
