Susan Stahl's Bible - Columbiana Ohio
Posted by: Anne Rupert (ID *****8869) Date: December 07, 2010 at 10:03:26

Greetings,

Years ago I purchased a small Bible in Unity Twp Columbiana Ohio because it had family writing in it. The Bible is 1848 edition -

Hand written - ink - first inside page:

Susan Stahl Book
Grandmother Stahls Bible
mother of Elizabeth Stahl Short or Shoot(?)
mother of Katherine Short Palmer
?? H S Short & Frances R Short
mother of Am ons? Palmer,
David Palmer and
Olin Palmer Jr

In another writing like pencil or charcoal
"Noah? Stohl"

also stamped in back on a blank page Mrs Noals Stahl

Pasted inside cover an article (old) concerning reading the Bible on a schedule. Article written by Rev E W Robinson and also signed by him in pencil - the article instructs reader to paste it on inside cover. Also mentioned in article is Rev Joseph Emerson. It appears when pasting on inside cover it went over old handwriting in charcoal and someone recopied it onto next page in ink.

Hope this may give some clues to anyone searching for family information.

I have no connection to this family. There are Stahl surnames in Columbiana County and will look into this. Updates to be posted.

Anne Rupert
Columbiana Co Ohio researcher
