Phillip Leopold Eckhardt of Wheeling WVA

I'm looking for information on the ancestors of Phillip Leopold Eckhardt, of Wheeling WVA. Phillip was born about 1851 in WVA, according to the 1880 census for Wheeling. He was married to Rosa Ella Moore, born about 1858. They had at least two children, Mary (Mayme) Eckhardt, born March 28, 1875, who died in 1962 in Pittsburgh, and Alberta, born about 1889. Mayme married Charles McLaughlin in 1898, and they had three children. Mayme's obituary indicated that she had, living in 1962, two sisters and one brother, all of whom living in Washington State.

In particular, I am interested in the identity of the person whose name is inscribed on the gold handle of a decorative cane that was in possession of one of Mayme's daughters. The cane handle reads: "L. Z. Eckhardt, Feb. 8, 1886." Neither the name nor the date means anything to me, and I am hoping someone else might know. Possibly this is the name of Phillip's father.
