117 "Sarah Snuffer, fourth daughter of John and Hannah Snuffer, was about 20 years old and unmarried in 1850. She was then living with her parents on Rennet Bag Creek. When her father died she shared in his estate and then apparently went to live with her brother, William Snuffer.

125 "UNCLE JASPER PUZZLES FAMILY," «i»The Columbus [OH] Dispatch «/i»(27 Aug 1987):
«tab»How did his death certificate stray 100 miles? When anything strange happens in the Kuhn household, the family just blames it on Uncle Jasper. Never mind that he has been dead 81 years.
«tab»"It's been kind of spooky around here lately, but it is fun," Sue Kuhn of Dublin said. The fun started a few years ago when Kuhn received some picture frames from her husband's grandmother a few years ago in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
«tab»Kuhn and her husband, Ted, planned to use the frames for mirrors. Contained in one of the frames was a death certificate for a Jasper Morgan dated July 11, 1906.
«tab»The Kuhns decided to leave the certificate in the frame and hang it on the wall. "We just did it out of silliness," Mrs. Kuhn said. "In fact, if anybody had asked whose name was on the death certificate, I would not have been able to tell them."
«tab»A few weeks ago, Mrs. Kuhn, who has two children, attended a reunion for her side of the family. Some family members started drawing a family tree.
«tab»It turns out the maiden name of Mrs. Kuhn's grandmother is Morgan, and the family tree included a Jasper Morgan who died in 1906 of a ruptured appendix.
«tab»A connection between the Jasper Morgan on the death certificate and the one discussed at the family reunion didn't dawn on Mrs. Kuhn until a few days later. «tab»"I was walking down the hall and, for some reason, stopped to look at the certificate. Then it clicked that this was my great uncle," she says. Mrs. Kuhn was still skeptical, so she did some investigating.
«tab»A member of her family told Mrs. Kuhn that Jasper Morgan was buried in Walnut Grove Cemetery in Worthington. Mrs. Kuhn went to see for herself. "Everything on the tombstone was the same as on the death certificate, right down to the very day of birth and death," Mrs. Kuhn said. "There isn't a doubt in my mind that they are one and the same."
«tab»Jasper Morgan was born, reared and died in central Ohio. So how did his death certificate end up in Sugarcreek, about 100 miles away in northeastern Ohio? And what about the coincidence of Mr. Kuhn's grandmother happening upon a death certificate for a relative of Mrs. Kuhn?
«tab»Nobody from Mrs. Kuhn's side of the family lives in Sugarcreek. Maybe somebody picked up the death certificate at a farm sale, Mrs. Kuhn said. "How it got to Sugarcreek, I'll never know. But it is back here now," Mrs. Kuhn said.
«tab»"How, whenever anything happens that we can't explain we just blame it on Uncle Jasper."

126 "Washington Births, 1907-1919," provides that Bennie Bascom Brandt was born 21 Nov 1910 in Adams Cnty, WA, to parents Henry Brandt and "Annie McCulken." A similar entry may be found in "Washington, Birth Records, 1870-1935." These data conflict with the California Death Index and with the information recorded on Benjamin's headstone. And the 1920 census supports the 1910 birth year, while the 1930 census supports the 1908 birth year. It seems likely that Bennie "fudged" his birth date, and moved it earlier by 2 years, in order to get into the military. Until I can review a legitimate birth certificate, I am going to accept the 1910 date.  Brandt, Benjamin Bascom (I5227)

133 (Research):

George Snouffer's second marriage to Elizabeth Ranneberger has been confused, perhaps largely by the inaccurate comments of Wm. J. Grove.

In his HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, p. 174 (1928), Grove stated: "George Snouffer married Dorcus Thomas. They had three children.... Mr. Snouffer's first wife died in 1821, and he married her sister Elizabeth Thomas. They had four children...."

However, earlier in the same book (ibid, at 121) he discussed the Ranneberger family, saying among other things: "Philip Ranneberger married Captain Otho Thomas's sister about 1790. *** Mr. Ranneberger had six children... [one of whom was] Elizabeth who married George Snouffer...."

The assertion that George Snouffer secondly married Dorcas' sister Elizabeth was repeated in G.L.Thomas, ENGLISH THOMAS GENEALOGY, pp. 34, 91 (1956). Because of his many references to it, Thomas clearly was familiar with Grove's book, and most likely was influenced wrongly by it.

But, based on the Frederick Evangelical Lutheran Church records, as well as the Frederick County marriage license, it seems clear that George Snouffer's second wife was indeed Elizabeth Ranneberger.

Much of G.L.Thomas' information (ibid, p. 34) on George Snouffer is wrong: he lists a birth date of 23 May 1792, a marriage date of 1 Apr 1815, and a death date of 26 Sep 1831, which are all "off" by various margins.

The Frederick [MD] Post, p. 8 (4 Feb 1944), reported on the monthly session of the Mayor and city council, including:
"Very few matters of special importance were brought up at the regular monthly meeting of the Mayor and Council last evening. ***
"Mr. William Snouffer said that he and a number of business men of the town expected to start a weekly paper to be known as the Brunswick Press. He asked the encouragement and support of the Mayor and Council, which he was assured. *** "

Further research is needed to discover which William Snouffer was involved: William F. [1818], or William Earl [916], or possibly William Kirk [921].

The 1850 Maryland census lists "Annie" Snouffer as a 21 year old woman living in the household of William and Mary Mooney; Mooney's occupation is listed as a Magistrate. 1850 U.S. Census, Emmitsburg, Frederick Cnty, MD (M 432, Roll 292, stamped p. 167). Is this the same person? 
Snouffer, Anna Elizabeth (I33)
 
136 (Research):
Richard Thomas Snouffer apparently was an illegitimate son of JJ Snouffer and a prostitute, Mary Shankle. Three months after Richard's birth, his father JJ and wife Anna J. White left Maryland for Iowa. As the censuses show, Richard grew up in the brothel, but went on to found a line of Maryland and North Carolina Snouffers.

According to Mary's great-great grandson David Hoover & his wife Susan, Richard Thomas Snouffer's death certificate names JJ as his father. Email reports from Susan & David Hoover, toky@aol.com (2004-2010). See Richard Thomas Snouffer's Notes.  
Shankle, Mary Ann (I1653)
 
137 (Research):
NAMES IN STONE reports Fannie's DOB as 28 Feb 1859, which is after her mother's death so not possible; perhaps this is a stonecutter's error.

J.T.Scharf, HISTORY OF WESTERN MARYLAND, pp. 447-448 (1882), discusses the Frederick County Fair of 1880, "acknowledged to be the best in Maryland, and probably not surpassed by any in the country," which was attended by President Hayes and part of his cabinet. Scharf reports that a "Miss A. T. Snouffer" was a participant in the "needle-work" department of the fair. [I am making an assumption that "Fannie" is a nickname, perhaps for Ann, and that she may have had the middle name Thomas, after her mother. But there are other possibilities: in 1880, #857 would be too old, & #'s 985 & 987 were more likely in Kansas.]

A John "Snoffer" served as a Private for a few months during the Civil War. John "Snoffer" is listed as a Private in Company E, Fifth Maryland Infantry Regiment, from 16 Mar 1865 through 1 Sep 1865. L.A.Wilmer, J.H.Jarrett, G.W.F.Vernon, HISTORY AND ROSTER OF MARYLAND VOLUNTEERS, WAR OF 1861-5, vol. 1, p. 201 (Guggenheimer, Weil & Co.; Baltimore, MD: 1898). See also www.civilwar.nps.gov/cwss/soldiers.htm (citing National Archives film 388, roll 11) (accessed Jan 2006).
According to the authors, Ibid, pp. 179-180:
"The Fifth Maryland Infantry Regiment was organized at Baltimore City, Maryland, in September, 1861, to serve three years. ***
"Company E was recruited in Frederick County and Baltimore City.... ***
"[T]he 5th Regiment marched with the army of the Potomac, and bore a conspicuous part in the battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862. *** [It was assigned to another Division during 1863.]
"The regiment rejoined the army of the Potomac in 1864, and participated in the siege of Petersburg, June to September, 1864.... ***
"The battles and engagements in which the 5th Regiment of Infantry participated were ... [numerous, and included the] occupation of Richmond, Va., April 3, 1865.
"The 5th Regiment of Infantry was mustered out of the military service of the United States at Fredericksburg, Va., September 1, 1865, and transported thence to Baltimore, Md., where the regiment disbanded."

Four John Snouffers are possible candidates:
(1) John Snouffer [36], born 6 Oct 1811, a fire company member in Emmitsburg, MD, who would have been 54 years old in 1865;
(2) This John Benjamin Snouffer [284], born 5 Jan 1816, and still living in Maryland when he married his 3d wife in 1859, who would have been 49 years old in 1865;
(3) His twin brother Benjamin John [285], born 5 Jan 1816, who also would have been 49 years old; but who probably was a Southern sympathizer; and
(4) John Boone Snouffer [968], born 12 Oct 1852, who would have been only 13 years old in 1865.
