On Apr. 10, 1830, Shobel and Louisa Strawbridge resided in Union township, Union Co., Pennsylvania., when they gave a deed to Philip Strawbridge of Mahoning Township, Columbia Co., Pennsylvania; which is recorded in the Columbia County records at Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.

There, also, is found recorded that letters of administration were granted, 1814, on the estate of Shobel Strawbridge. Mrs. Mary B. Strawbridge's account says that Shobel Strawbridge lived many years in Cincinnati, Ohio, and that he was a Methodist minister. The following was obtained from the records of Columbia Co., Pa.:
