Westenbarger Religious Book

Biblifche Hiftorien aus den Alten und Neuen Teftamente, Frankfort und
Leipzig, 1768.

Biblifche Hiftorien Alten Neuen Teftamente

This looks like a Bible commentary or study guide. I do not read German.
It is a beautiful volume, with many engravings. It is in poor condition, with
a lot of wear. The spine is missing, replaced by a piece of cloth, and the
boards were handsewn back on. It is missing the clasps or bands that
used to hold it closed.

There are just a few entries in this book. The father Paul Westenbarger
appears to have arrived on the ship "Loyal Judith" in Philadelphia on
Sept. 3, 1742 and later settled in Maryland. Many of his descendants
settled in Fairfield County, Ohio. Please see: Origin of the Fairfield County,
Ohio Westenbargers, compiled by: Linvil G. Rich, in possession of the
Fairfield County, Ohio library for more details and sources.
