141 (Research):
According to www.Ancestry.com, the 1841 Scotland Census has at least 5 James Campbells born in 1796 in Ayrshire (and 1 born 1797), each with different family arrangements. Need more info in order to select correct one.

 
Campbell, James (I5020)
 
142 (Research):
According to www.Ancestry.com, the 1841 Scotland Census lists 1 George Campbell born abt 1806 in Ayrshire, still living in Barr Village, Aryshire, as an agricultural laborer; married with 1 baby girl. There also is a George, b. abt 1796, living in Galston, another in Maybole, another in St. Quivox, and a 5th in Old Cumnock, Ayrshire. 
Campbell, George (I5177)
 
143 (Research):
According to www.Ancestry.com, the 1841 Scotland Census lists a Robert Campbell, b. ab 1776 in Ayrshire, living on Old Street, Riccarton, with a daughter Martha, 25, and son Thomas 20; there is no mention of a wife. (Old Street is where the Churchyard cemetery is located, and where Robert Campbell is buried.). 
Campbell, Robert (I4575)
 
144 (Research):
According to www.Ancestry.com, the 1841 Scotland Census shows 2 Robert Campbells born 1806 in Aryshire; 1 b. 1798 in Scotland; 1 b. abt 1808 in Ayrshire, etc. No way to narrow field without more data. 
Campbell, Robert (I5022)
 
145 (Research):
According to Dickson's Kendall County page, there is an obituary for Bill published in the Kendall County Record, 27 Dec 1984. 
Wheeler, Elnathan Henry "Bill" (I4133)
 
146 (Research):
According to her obituary in the ┬╗San Antonio [TX] Express-News (22 Mar 2004), Judy was survived by a daughter named Misty Ayers, living in Dallas. Presumably she is a daughter from a prior marriage. 
Atkins, Judy L. (I3843)
 
147 (Research):
According to one New York City marriages index, a Walter Elsfelder married Isabelle Sylatycn on 13 Jul 1920. http://www.italiangen.org/NYCmarrigesearch.asp. This is problematical insofar as Walter is listed as living in Washington during the 1920 census taking; he also was attending the Univ. of Chicago. So, this may be a different Walter Elsfelder.

The Manhattan marriage cert # is 32288. 
Elsfelder, Walter Lee (I5211)
 
148 (Research):
According to the Calif. Marriage Index (www.Ancestry.com), Charle E. Snouffer, b. "abt 1952" married Carol A. Salera, 2 Jan 1971, in Santa Barbara, CA.

Another marriage by Charles E. Snouffer to a Catherin M. Olsen occurred 18 Apr 1982 in Los Angeles. (Ibid
Snouffer, Charles Eugene (I5353)

According to the Social Security Death Index, Lucille I Butler (SSN 505-30-9162; issued in Nebraska) was b. 23 Mar 1917 and d. 14 Dec 1987 while living in Poolesville, Montgomery Cnty, MD.

According, however, to the sources cited for her death, she was b. 23 Mar 1918. 
Cox, Lucille Irene (I2383)
 
150 (Research):
According to the Social Security Death Index, Mary Jacobs (SSN 481-22-6656; issued in Iowa) was born 10 Dec 1892 and died in July 1973 while residing in Marengo, Iowa Cnty, IA. However, she probably is Mary C Jacobs, 37, married to Joseph Jacobs, 39, with children: Robert G, 17; Margaret K, 15; Loren C, 12; and Emmett J, 8. 1930 U.S. Census, Morengo, Iowa Cnty, IA (T626, Roll 659, ED 16, p. 15A)

Also according to the Social Security Death Index, one Gertrude Jacobs (SSN 485-09-0813; issued in Iowa before 1951) was b. 14 Sep 1893 and died in Sep 1970 while residing in Lubbock, Lubbock Cnty, TX.

Also according to the SSDI, another Gertrude Jacobs (SSN 485-34-9236; issued in Iowa) was b 14 Aug 1895 and died in Jun 1980 while residing in Muscatine, IA. 
Seabrook, Mary Gertrude (I5243)
 
151 (Research):
Although www.Findagrave.com asserts that Myrtie was a daughter of Frank and Mary Crooks, there is reason to be doubtful. A number of sources say that the couple had 5 children, but only 2 boys survived. "Myrtie" is not listed in any of the relevant censuses.  
Crooks, Myrtie Emma (I10610)
 
152 (Research):
Although Elizabeth and her husband John are reported in AMERICAN BOYERS to be buried in Krider's Cemetery, neither is listed in the main reference -- vol. 5, part 1, CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES (Carroll Cnty Genealogical Soc'y: 1996) -- under any usual spelling of the last name: Boyers, Bayer, Beyer, Beier, Byer, Byers, etc.

153 (Research):
Although John and Elizabeth are reported in AMERICAN BOYERS to be buried in Krider's Cemetery, neither is listed in the main reference -- vol. 5, part 1, CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES (Carroll Cnty Genealogical Soc'y: 1996) -- under any usual spelling of the last name: Boyers, Bayer, Beyer, Beier, Byer, Byers, etc. 
Beier / Byers, John (I373)
 
154 (Research):
An extensive search in Mar 2009 of the 1930 census index for Don or Donald Shermans born in Ohio in 1891-1894 was unsuccessful; negative results. There are many Shermans, but no name could be stretched to include Don or Donald. 
Sherman, Don L. (I7220)
 
155 (Research):
Ann is the presumed name, based on Scottish naming traditions, because Ann was the name of the second daughter of their first son John. 
[ Ann ?] (I7182)
 
156 (Research):
Based upon the 1841 census information, it is assumed that the Nicol, aged 18, who is living with his uncle Donald Campbell and family on 6 June 1841, the date of the census, is actually John Campbell's son. Note that there is another Nicol Campbell, aged 10, in the household; it is unlikely that there would be 2 sons in the same family bearing the same names. This also is consistent with the Scottish practice of naming the first born son after the paternal grandfather -- both John and Donald named their first born sons after grandfather Nicol. 
Campbell, John (I5030)
 
157 (Research):
Because of the substantial age difference between the two sets of sons mentioned in the 1880 census, it would appear that Ransom remarried after his wife Lucinda died in 1870. Or, "sons" Jefferson, 8, and Floyd, 2, may actually have been grandsons.  
Wall, Ransom G. (I6348)
 
158 (Research):
Because the 1900 census shows Michael living with a second wife, "Fanny A," to whom he had been married 9 years, it must be presumed either that Josephine and Michael had divorced, or that she had died, by 1890 or '91. 
Saunders, Josephine (I5210)
 
159 (Research):
Bertha Newens thought that Elizabeth died as a baby in 1853. But because Elizabeth is listed as a 7-yr old girl in the 1860 Maryland census, she obviously lived for quite some time. However, she is not listed in the 1870 Iowa census, after the family had moved to Cedar Rapids, IA. Date and place of death need to be determined. 
Snouffer, Ann Elizabeth (I20)
 
160 (Research):
Charles and Fredericka are not listed in the 1870 Iowa Census. There is, however, an intriguing entry of a Charles Brandt and his wife "Ricka." Charles is reported to be 36 yrs old; "Ricka" as 30; and both born in Virginia. (1870 U.S. Census, Eden Twsp, Clinton Cnty, IA (M 593, roll 384, stamped p. 238). However, they do not reappear in the 1880 Iowa census.

No likely Brandts or Brants are found in the 1870 censuses for Iowa, Illinois or Virginia, where other sources indicate they might have been.

 
Wickert / Weckert, Frederika Margaret (I4682)
 
161 (Research):
Charles Brandt's name is problematic. A Brandt family chart, drawn-up by his grand-daughters Flora and Eva Campbell, lists his name at the head of the chart as: "Charles (Karl) Brandt (Von Neuhaus) (circa) 1830 - 1879". The family lore is that his birth name was Karl Von Neuhaus, but that he emigrated from Germany in order to avoid compulsory military service and changed his name upon arrival in the United States. [No original records have been located to substantiate this story.]

It may be noted that "Neuhaus" means new house, and that "von" means "of," so that Karl -- or more probably an ancestor -- was distinguished from other Karls by being described as Karl of the new house. See G. F. Jones, GERMAN-AMERICAN NAMES, pp. 41, 207 (Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD: 1990).

Further, the name Brandt or Brand refers either to a sword or a forest clearing. (Ibid, pp. 89, 90, 14-15) The symbol often used to represent one who has reclaimed land was a man holding a sword: "A whole category of names derived from the act of clearing land, among which are brand,...." (Ibid, p. 42)

So it would be natural and perhaps even logical for one whose name was "Neuhaus," and whose ancester had cleared land and built a new house, to utilize "Brandt" or Brand when he changed his name.

Charles and Fredericka are not listed in the 1870 Iowa Census. There is, however, an intriguing entry of a Charles Brandt and his wife "Ricka." Charles is reported to be 36 yrs old; "Ricka" as 30; and both born in Virginia. (1870 U.S. Census, Eden Twsp, Clinton Cnty, IA (M 593, roll 384, stamped p. 238.) However, they do not reappear in the 1880 Iowa census.

No likely Brandts or Brants are found in the 1870 censuses for Iowa, Illinois or Virginia, where other sources indicate they might have been. Nor does any Charles Brandt or Brant in the 1860 census seem likely.

Christina may also be found in the LDS Pedigree Resource File, in the following locations (although the information about her is wrong): CD # 8, Pin 283182; CD # 21, Pin 262370; CD # 32, Pin 444787. 
Schnauffer, Christina (I50)
 
164 (Research):
David Hoover wrote in a Jan. 2004 Email that his mother was Gertrude Snouffer, her father was "Benjamin Franklin" S.; his father, Richard Thomas S., and his father, Joshua (per Richard's death certificate).  
Snouffer, Benjamin Franklin (I2185)
 
165 (Research):
During the Civil War, one "Richard Thomas" volunteered for the U.S. Navy and served as a "Landsman" on the ships Alleghany, Roanoke and Constellation. He enlisted 26 Sep 1862 and served "to May 10, 1865; no further record, U.S.N. Department." L.A. Wilmer, J.H. Jarrett, G.W.F. Vernon, HISTORY AND ROSTER OF MARYLAND VOLUNTEERS, WAR OF 1861-5, vol. 2, p. 111 (Guggenheimer, Weil & Co., Baltimore, MD: 1898). 
Thomas, Richard Clark (I801)

Fisher & Arter, The Arter/Arthur Family of Fountain Valley (1979), p. 12, list Ann Mary's baptismal date as "2/31/1799." 
Arter, Anna Margareta (Ann Mary) (I3518)
 
167 (Research):
Further work needs to be done on this family. According to the "Jonathon" report, Steven married a Diane and had 2 children named Libby and Heath. According to the same report, his brother Kurt was married to a Diane, and had a child named Abby. These facts seem improbable. 
Snouffer, Steven (I11287)
 
168 (Research):
G.L.Thomas, ENGLISH THOMAS GENEALOGY, pp. 43, 93 (1956), gives her dob as 2 Apr 1848 and her dod as 23 Jan 1920; I have used data from Holdcraft's NAMES IN STONE
Snouffer, Harriet ("Hattie") Elizabeth (I331)
 
169 (Research):
Helen Snouffer Brooks reported in 1989 that Sarah's birth year was 1876, not 1875. Perhaps there is a typo somewhere in the research. 
Snouffer, Sarah Elizabeth ("Sallie") (I869)
 
170 (Research):
Her tombstone indicates that she had 12 children (10 sons, 2 daughters), rather than 13.

Also, there may be a question about this woman's first name; it might be Anna rather than Mary. 
Diehl, Mary Catherine (I2583)
 
171 (Research):
In a report dated 3 Mar 1986 to Wm.N.Snouffer, Margaret Myers quoted from a source she cited as: Robert W. Barnes & Norman Niccum, Vital Notices from Frederick-town, Maryland, Newspapers, 1786-1831, p. 14 (n.d.):
"Died, Friday morning, John Snouffer, aged 42 years 6 months 4 days, a resident of Carroll Manor; survived by widow and 8 children."

Ms. Myers asserted that this account should read that John died Friday morning, Sept 18, 1823, and by calculation he would have been born 15 Mar 1781.

The reliability of this information is uncertain. Ms. Myers is a well known genealogist; Robert Barnes is the author and compiler of genealogy books and materials. This particular source is not found in the Inter-library loan system's World Catalog.

172 (Research):
Information about Ann's death is assumed from the death register entry of her father William Campbell, who died 8 Mar 1875. 
Campbell, Ann (I4672)
 
173 (Research):
Information on Robert Smith is assumed from the death register entry of his father-in-law, William Campbell, who died 8 Mar 1875.

174 (Research):
It is quite possible that this "Isabella" is the same person as her sister "Ada Belle." 
Lane, Isabella (I10500)
 
175 (Research):
It should be noted that the 1860 census also reported another Dr. Belt living in Missouri: James W D Belt, 50, a physician, born in Virginia, who was living with his 4 children, and a tenant-farmer with his wife and 2 children. 1860 U.S. Census, Warsaw P.O., Benton Cnty, MO (M 653, Roll 607, p. 277).
