8055 The «i»Montgomery County [MD] Sentinel,«/i» p. 3 (14 Sep 1900), reported on results of competitions at the 47th annual Fair of the Montgomery County Agricultural Assocation [that] was held last week." Lottie Penn won a prize in the "Children's department." «i»See «/i» John D.

8057 The «i»Montgomery County [MD] Sentinel,«/i» p. 3 (7 Dec 1894), reported:
«tab»"Rev. Walter P. Griggs, pastor of St. Peter's, Poolesville, and Miss Sallie Cummings Gassaway...were married November 28th. Others mentioned are ... McGill Belt, ... Dr. E. Oliver Belt,...." John D. Bowman, «i»Guide to Selections from the Montgomery County [MD] Sentinel, 1893 - 1896«/i», p. 96 (2007).

T.J.C.Williams & F.McKinsey, «i»HISTORY OF FREDERICK COUNTY«/i», pp. 919-920 (1910), state that
«tab»Edward Oliver "graduated in medicine at the Maryland University, after which he went abroad and studied in Vienna, Berlin, Paris and London. Upon his return home he located in Washington, D.C., and founded the Episcopal Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, which stands as a monument to him.
«tab»"On December 30, 1906, as he was returning from a day spent at Rock Hall, he and his two little sons, Edward McGill Belt and Sinclair Belt, ages six and seven years, lost their lives in a horrible railroad wreck at Terra Cotta, six miles west of Washington." [Harry L. Thomas was disabled from injuries received in the same wreck.]

Williams & McKinsey further report («i»Ibid«/i», p. 586):
«tab»"Belt, Edward Oliver. Born in Frederick county, May 19, 1861. M.D., University of Maryland, 1886. Began practice in Frederick county. Later resident physician of Presbyterian Eye, Ear and Throat Charity Hospital, Baltimore. Founder and Surgeon of the Episcopal Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, Washington, D.C. Surgeon, Freedmen's Hospital. Professor of Ophthalmology and Otology, Howard University, Washington, D.C. After locating in Washington in 1889 he became local Surgeon of the B. & O. railroad. He was a member of the Frederick County Medical Society. [See also «i»id.«/i», p. 582] On returning to Washington from a visit to Frederick he was killed in the terrible railroad disaster at Terra Cotta December 30th, 1906."

8058 The «u»www.findagrave.com«/u» memorial has her name as "Sirl" Croushorn. Croushorn, Shirl(ey?) Hamilton (I4966)

8060 There are "United States Public Records" showing that between July 1994 and June 1997, Alan D Brandt lived in Portland, OR, with "Mary Ann Brandt." From 2003 to his death in 2007, he lived in Eugene, OR. One may infer reasonably that he and Mary Ann were divorced at some point after they lived in Portland. Brandt, Alan Dean (I5233)
 
8061 There are a number of Ancestry.com Family Trees which list varying numbers of up to 12 children; e.g. http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/43457637/person/12661359010?ssrc= Beaver, John George Shaffer (I13179)

8063 There are U.S. public records showing Richard L. Rodkey, b. 26 January 1948, living in Westminster, MD, Littlestown, PA, and in Taneytown, MD.

In late 1969, Richard received a speeding ticket and was fined $13. The story says: "Motor Code Cases Heard, Fines Levied *** Richard L. Rodkey, Westminster [MD], fined $13;***." The [Hanover, PA] Evening Sun, p. 36 (29 Dec 1969). 
Rodkey, Richard L. (I13941)
 
8064 There is a date discrepency in Henry's birth dates between the Fisher-Arter data and the information on his tombstone.

The Fisher-Arter data (2d ed; ch. 5, p. 35) state:
"(3) Arter, Henry b. 7/27/1803, baptized at St. Benjamin's Lutheran Church, Westminster, MD. [No date for the baptism] d. 9/29/1871, buried St. Bartholomew's Cemetery, Hanover, PA. m. Susannah Lark b. 1/12/1806, d. 11/29/1877. 7 children "

However, Henry's tombstone is inscribed "Henry Arther | Died | Sept 29 1871 | Aged | 69 Years 9 Mos | & 7 Ds" which calculates to a birthdate of 22 Dec 1801.

 
Arter, Heinrich (Henry) (I8719)
 
8065 There is a death notice that "Alan Brandt, 82, of Eugene, died Nov. 24." The [Eugene, OR] Register-Guard (25 Nov 2007). There are no further details nor an obituary.  Brandt, Alan Dean (I5233)
 
8066 There is a document from the old Claiborne Cnty, TN, court records, that now is in the Tenn. State Library, which gives her father George Snauffer a power of attorney for 5 of his children to seek a share of their grandfather [David] Jarrett's estate. "The document *** names George's children as John [Jacob], David, George, Nancy and Mary Snauffer. *** David, George and Jacob can be firmly placed in the Snauffer family, but nothing is known about Nancy and Mary." (THE SNUFFERS, Addendum to ch. 5, p. 58a.) Schnauffer / Snauffer, Nancy (I560)
 
8067 There is a document from the old Claiborne Cnty, TN, court records, that now is in the Tenn. State Library, which gives her father George Snauffer a power of attorney for 5 of his children to seek a share of their grandfather [David] Jarrett's estate. "The document *** names George's children as John [Jacob], David, George, Nancy and Mary Snauffer. *** David, George and Jacob can be firmly placed in the Snauffer family, but nothing is known about Nancy and Mary." (THE SNUFFERS, Addendum to ch. 5, p. 58a.) Schnauffer / Snauffer, Mary (I561)
 
8068 There is a document from the old Claiborne Cnty, TN, court records, that now is in the Tenn. State Library, which gives her father George Snauffer a power of attorney for 5 of his children to seek a share of their grandfather [David] Jarrett's estate. "The document *** names George's children as John, David, George, Nancy and Mary Snauffer. *** Margaret, the daughter who married Philip Huff and died in Indiana, was only 13 years old at the time [the] others signed the document and was not of legal age." (THE SNUFFERS, Addendum to Ch.5, p. 58a.) Schnauffer / Snuffer, Margaret (I567)
 
8069 There is a document from the old Claiborne Cnty, TN, court records, that now is in the Tenn.

8070 There is a document from the old Claiborne County, TN, court records that now is in the Tennessee State Library, which gives his father George Snauffer a power of attorney for 5 of his children to seek a share of their grandfather [David] Jarrett's estate. "The document *** names George's children as John, David, George, Nancy and Mary Snauffer. However, John signed as "Jacob," indicating that his full given name probably was John Jacob, a common given name in German families. This also may explain why the names John and Jacob keep showing up separately in early Claiborne; they were the same person using first one name and then the other." (THE SNUFFERS, Addendum to Ch.5, p. 58a.) Schnauffer / Snuffer, John (Jacob) (I557)
 
8071 There is a Findagrave memorial for Isabelle Lane, b. 1859, d. 1929, buried in the GAR Cem, Kilpatrick Post, Newberg, Yamhill Cnty, OR. Findagrave 38955123. Lane, Isabella (I10500)
 
8072 There is a Mary Adrian Diffenbaugh (wife of John T. Diffenbaugh), who died 6 Feb 1877 at age 49, buried in the Westminster Cemetery, Westminster. See: «u»http://files.usgwarchives.net/md/carroll/cemeteries/westmin.txt«/u». Also buried there is an 11-yr old daughter, Mary E. Diffenbach / Diffenbaugh, John Thomas (I3505)
 
8073 There is a suggestion in CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES (Ibid) that, buried in the same lot are possibly a daughter, Elizabeth W. Zepp, and Clifton E. Zepp. Both are listed with the same grave number, and their names appear on the "rear of [the] stone" which has Josiah (or "Jessia") and Annie's names. As the 1910 census suggests, these must be references to Josiah and Annie's daughter and a grandson. Photos of the relevant tombstone (viewable at www.findagrave.com) confirm these suggestions. Witmer, Annie E. (I5747)
 
8074 There is an entry in Ancestry.com's "Ohio, Divorce Abstracts..." for a divorce/dissolution in Clark Cnty, OH on 18 Feb 1977 between David C. Robinson and Marcia L. Robinson. Robinson, David Charles (I14799)
 
8075 There is some ambiguity about Frank's birth year. Ohio birth indexes record that he was born in 1883. But, as mentioned below, the 1900 census, his WW I draft card, and the 1930 census all state that he was born in 1882. It seems more likely to me that the birth indexes record the accurate information from the original birth certificate (which, of course, needs to be verified).
 
Snouffer, Frank Case (I1247)
 
8076 There was a death and memorial service notice published in the Columbus [OH] Dispatch, p. 8F (2 Sep 1992):
"Armentrout - Robert l., 69, [died] Aug. 30; memorial service, 12 noon Wednesday [2 Sept], St. Augustine Church."

8079 This baby girl, whose first name is illegible on the monument, is buried in the Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Pleasant Valley, Carroll Cnty, MD, in sec. A, row 6, lot 14, next to her parents. «i»See «/i»vol. 5, part 1, CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES, p. 125 (Carroll County Genealogical Soc'y; 1999). Myers, Unknown (I5490)

8081 This couple had at least 16 children; see www.Findagrave.comDarrah, Matthew McAfee (I10599)
 
8082 This couple was a "sponsor" for John and Christina Schnauffer's daughter Mary Elizabeth's baptism, 29 June 1788. See, Charles Zahn's "Church Record of the Evangelical Lutheran Congregation of St. Benjamin's, or Krider's Church at Pipe Creek, near Westminster, Md." (see, LDS Film No. 0013200), and vol. 9, MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS, p. 40 (C.T. Zahn & F.S. Weiser, eds; 1993). They also sponsored Johannes Baumgardner, bp 14 Apr 1786. «i»Ibid.«/i»

Regarding Michael's wife, Doris Rex Schulte wrote: "Her [Magdalena's] sister, Elisabeth, wife of Michael Myerly, did migrate from Maryland to Trough Creek Valley, Huntingdon County, PA, after their daughter Catharine was baptised, 7 Oct 1792, at St. Benjamin's (Kreider's) Evangelical Lutheran Church, Pipe Creek (now Carroll Co. [MD])" (Note from Doris Rex Schulte, 164 4th St, Bonia Shores, Bonita Springs, FL 33923, to Don & Diana Pheneger [26 Jun 1994].) 
Myerly / Mayerle, Michael (I794)
 
8083 This Elizabeth Ellen Thomas married George W. Snouffer, her first cousin once removed. She was a first cousin of Elizabeth Ranneberger, her husband's mother. Elizabeth Ranneberger's mother, Sarah Thomas, was a sister to Cap't Otho B. Thomas, this Elizabeth's father.

The 1850 Maryland census lists Elizabeth Snouffer, aged 23, living with her husband George and three children, Otho T, "Harriet" [sic], and George. 1850 U.S. Census, Buckeystown twsp, Frederick Cnty, MD (p. 221).

Wm. J. Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, pp. 168-170 (1928), while writing about the "old Thomas burying ground in the southern end of Carrollton Manor," states: "Elizabeth Ellen, wife of G. W. Snouffer and daughter of Otho and Harriet Thomas. Born 1827. Age 30 years."

J. M. Holdcraft, NAMES IN STONE, p. 1070 (1966), also reports that Elizabeth was buried in the Thomas Family Cemetery near Point of Rocks, MD. Further, Holdcraft notes that the family has a duplicate stone in the Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Frederick, MD. That duplicate stone is engraved on all four sides. The front lists "G. W. Snouffer" and his wife Elizabeth Thomas and a family of 8 children: Otho T, Harriet E, George, Sarah I, Benjamin R, Florence, Ellen, and Fannie. 
Thomas, Elizabeth Ellen (I323)
 
8084 This father's daughter, Marjorie S. Snouffer, is buried in Walnut Grove Cemetery; her obit indicates that she was survived by, among others, a brother names Carl John Setzer, Jr., Durham, N.C. Thus, it is assumed that this father was named Carl John Setzer. Setzer, Carl John (I1363)
 
8085 This individual was born Norman Frederick Volz when his mother Maude was married to George J. Volz. They separated; in 1909 Maude married Adam Michael Snouffer. Subsequently Norman was either adopted by his step-father, and took on the name Adam Norman Snouffer, or perhaps he changed his name legally outside of adoption. Snouffer / Volz, Adam Norman (I3938)
