Very bad condition.
Office did not have record of Barbara. Per Robert Schafluetzel 12/80:
Looking in church records at St. Liborius, Barbara Schafluetzel wife of Jacob has signed name two different ways- Huber & Hangartner. Have been told that Jacob was married twice, Gail (Schafluetzel) even said that the two spellings were the two wives. Also she said Huber was the wife who bore Frieda and Jacob #2. This is very inconsistent. Since I was also told all but otto were born here. Otto being the youngest.
