I am trying to find the ancestry of my gggg-grandmother Christiana “Liebenstine” (b. 09/01/1790, d. 08/01/1880.) In the family of Johann George Liebenstein (1713-1771) and Catharina Rauscher, there was a daughter named Christina (b. 08/05/1746 in Manchester Twp, York, d. 05/05/1809 in Adams County,) and then two grandchildren named Christina (#1 b. 02/06/1791, of Michael Liebenstein & Maria Elizabeth Lantz; #2 b. 10/26/1783, of John George Liebenstein and Elizabeth Barbara Lantz). All of them appear to have lived in York.
Johann George and Catharina had other sons for whom I have not found descendants: John Adam (b. 02/16/1739) and John (b. 03/08/1759), both born in York. I am wondering if Christiana might be one of their children.
Christiana “Liebenstine” married John Sheffer (1786-1835). They had at least one son, Uriah Seth Sheffer (1824-1898). Can anyone “link up” Christiana to a line of Liebensteins?
