1. Jacob Flinchbaugh (1793-1875)

History and Biography of Jacob Flinchbaugh

Jacob Flinchbaugh is the second son of Frederick Flinchbaugh and Christina Pfister.  According to his tombstone, he was born March 3, 1793 in York County, PA.  Jacob first married Christina Diehl.  All of Jacob’s children were with Christina before she passed away in 1841.  Jacob then married Barbara.  They did not have any children together, but she helped to raise his younger children.

Jacob purchased much of his father Frederick’s property.  Deed’s from when Jacob sold the property in 1859 references him purchasing it from his father Frederick in 1829.  This makes sense, as much of the land was never officially “patented” and records show Jacob finally completed the patent process for many of the original parcels of land between 1827 and 1829.
