Barbara Shenberger Flinchbaugh
Dying in the year 1884
Jacob Flinchbaugh's son - Adam Diehl Flinchbaugh wrote in the Bible Register
Barbara Flinchbaugh 1884 his (stepmother) - Had passed away
Adam Diehl Flinchbaugh died in the year 1902 - he signed this Bible in the Back simply as, Adam -1875
The Year his Father Died! I carefully compared his signature many times for this conclusion
This was a Bible that Jacob Flinchbaugh's Family owned since the 1830's
He and most of his family are buried at the Lebanon Lutheran Church - Felton Pa - Flinchbaugh Plot
** The Bible Register does not say Adam's Stepmother - I am only saying this to note
she was not his natural mother.
This Bible belonged to Jacob Franklin Flinchbaugh it was in his House
His Great Grandfather was Melchior Flinspach!
I purchased this Bible from a Family in Stewardstown Pa in 2008 - a family treasure
