Hello everyone, I am trying to locate both family information and one old family picture beleived to be with the Flinchbaugh family line.

The picture is of my gggg grandfather Frederick Schoffstall in a Union Uniform sitting on a chair holding a sword over his right shoulder. This appeared to be a larger picture, possible oil painting in a heavy frame. I have a distored copy of a copy or two of a photo picture of the org. picture or painting, which I can email for a cross reference. If anyone knows of it's where abouts, I would love to see it and take a good ditigal picture of it.

I have in my posession a 2 page hand written letter & envolope written by a Mr. H. H. Flinchbaugh (Justice of the Peace & Reliable Local Insurance) Loganville, Pa. written on 22 Feb. 1965 & post mailed (Seven Valleys) 23 Feb. 1965 to Walter E. Shofstall Romansville, PA. (who is my great grandfather)relaying information regarding Frederick Schoffstall. We believe H. H. Flinchbaugh could have been in posession of the picture/oil painting of Frederick.

My gggg grandparents, Frederick Schoffstall 1820-1886 & M. Anna Evers (Ebert) 1819-???? had the following 9 children; (1)Susan, (2)Solme, (3)Adeline "m. to a Hummel" (4) Catherine "m. to a Dingee Pennock" (5) Benjamin (6) Barbara (7) Elvina "m. to a FLINCHBAUGH" (8) Mary (9) William "m. to a Julie Ann Snyder {#9 is my blood line ancestors}

A (Male) Flinchbaugh & Elvina Schoffstall had the following Flinchbaugh children; (1)Adeline (2) Di Etta (3) Esther (4) Harry (5) another son.

Anyone with ifromation regarding this family line please contact Marlin D. Strouth at ( Marlin191@aol.com ). Thanks
