8296 «i»Cedar Rapids Gazette«/i» (?) (no date; abt 1909):
«tab»"Mr. and Mrs. William D. Snouffer gave a dinner Tuesday at one o'clock, in honor of the sixtieth birthday of Mrs. Snouffer's uncle, Mr. I. Newens of Nome, Alaska, who came to Cedar Rapids to spend Christmas with his brother, Mr. John Newens. Covers were laid for eight and the dinner was served in five courses.
«tab»"Mr. and Mrs. Snouffer's guests were Mr. I. Newens, Mr. and Mrs. John Newens, Miss Lessie Newens, and Mr. and Mrs. Silas Miller of Mt. Vernon."

On 4 Mar 1946 Bertha (Newens) Snouffer wrote a letter to her granddaughter Barbara Nelson about homesteading days in Colorado:
«tab»"It was Christmas 1909 ... when my [father's brother] Uncle Isaiah Newens came to Cedar Rapids to visit us. He had been living in Nome Alaska for many years.... Uncle Isaiah was my fathers brother, and another brother Uncle Dick [Richard Newens] and his wife came from southern Iowa, and a cousin [Charlie Newens] who was a son of another brother ["Uncle Ned" or Edward Newens] of theirs came from Chi[cago]..... Uncle Dick got all of us interested in going to Colorado to 'take up homestead land.' He told of land that the government was opening up to homesteaders. So Grandpa Newens, Aunt Lessie [Newens] (who was not married), Uncle Art [Snouffer] and your Grandpa [William D.] Snouffer all decided they would go out [to Colorado] and investigate.
«tab»"They left here [Cedar Rapids, IA] in Jan. 1910 and were quite enthused about the prospects, so with the help of a cousin (Uncle Dick's son) who was already located there they picked out the land they would like to have, and then they went to the Government Land Office in Sterling Colo and filed a claim for their land; each one had 160 acres. Then they came home and we prepared to move....
«tab»"Grandpa Newens arranged for a [railroad] box car and in it all the furniture was packed on one side of the car, and on the other side was a buggy, a wagon, a team of horses, and Uncle Arts dog Fanny, and a crate with about 24 chickens....
«tab»"*** Grandpa Snouffer was the carpenter, Great Grandpa Newens helped him, and Uncle Art made the trips back and forth to town for lumber, more of the household goods, groceries, etc.
«tab»"Great Grandma Newens, Aunt Lessie, Your mother (who was my little baby not two years old yet) and I stayed here in Iowa for about two weeks, then we decided we would go also.***
«tab»"*** [When a range fire threatened them] Grandpa Newens was wise enough to start a fire and burn a strip about 10 feet wide ... around our household goods ... then we went over to where the house was being built and new lumber piled near, and built a similar fire break. [In an earlier draft of the letter she then wrote: "Our house was soon finished.... Aunt Lessie's house was built next, then Uncle Art's and finally Great Grandpa & Grandma Newens house was finished. *** We lived on the farm for three years, then proved up and got a government deed.... The land is still ours and has been farmed every year -- although we only lived there the three years. *** "] [Most of the group returned to Cedar Rapids after the required three years.]

In a letter of 13 Mar 1975 to her son Robert, she wrote:
«tab»"It was Uncle Dick who got us all interested in going to Colorado....*** Uncle Isaiah went back to Seattle and I dont know where he died or is buried.*** Uncle Isaiah went to Alaska from Seattle, Wash., with the Klondike Gold Rush people -- I don't know what year that was -- I think he and his wife parted -- don't know about a divorce or who she was. Anyway he came back to Seattle -- about the time Will and I were married (1907) then he came here to C.R. perhaps in 1909. *** I believe it was winter when Uncle Isaiah, Uncle Dick and Aunt Ciddie came to visit us, then it was Spring when the C.R. bunch went to Colo. to file their claims. *** Uncle Isaiah came back to the U.S. from Nome Alaska. Not sure about his success -- evidently he did not strike it rich. Nadine has a picture of his store there with the name on the store -- Newens and someone else [Glandon]. It was a general store -- He brot [sic] us gold nuggets, old ivory, Blanche a little fur coat - not lined - nor tanned.... I lost my gold nugget pin on the 3rd Ave. bridge. *** " 
Newens, Isaiah (I171)
 
8297 «i»Council Bluffs [IA] Nonpareil«/i», p. 8 (21 Mar 1955) , reports:
«tab»"Miss Donna Laub, senior at Stephens College, Columbia, is a senior sister and publicity chairman for her residence, Tower Hall. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Laub. A member of Stephens Independent Association and Concert Chorus, Miss Laub is specializing in history. She has been active in basketball, volleyball, softball and tennis."

Donna's mother Alice's obituary in the «i»Denison Review«/i», p. __ (3 Oct 1987), states:
«tab»"Alice Electa Laub was born in Franklin County, Iowa, February 21, 1898....
«tab»"On October 12, 1926, Alice was united in marriage with Henry Clay Laub at Dows, Wright County, Iowa. To this union two children were born, Henry Clay Laub and Donna Rae. ***
«tab»"She is survived by her ... daughter Donna Rae Shadden and her husband Jack of Nodaway, Adams County, Iowa; [and] grandchildren ... Kelly Shadden and his wife Rita of Omaha, Douglas County, Nebraska, and Patrick Shadden of Nodaway. Also surviving are nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.*** "

Donna's great-grand-aunt, Sarah Elizabeth Snouffer, appears to have been the creator of a unique American quilt. It is featured in Barbara Brackman, CLUES IN THE CALICO: A GUIDE TO IDENTIFYING AND DATING ANTIQUE QUILTS, p.8 (EPM Publications, Inc., McLean, VA; 1989). It is made in the "feathered star pattern" and has a bright chintz fabric border.

As of late 2004, the quilt was owned by Marilyn Woodin, curator of the Kalona Quilt and Textile Museum, of Kalona, Iowa. She purchased it in 1986 from Donna Rae Shadden, a descendant of the Laub family who obtained it from the Snouffer family.

After Donna sold the quilt to Ms. Woodin, she wrote a letter on 25 Jan 1988 in which she reported:
«tab»"Lucy Snouffer was my grandmother's unmarried sister. She came to live with my Grandmother Laub in Denison, Iowa in 1911.... When my parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Clay Laub, had to break up my grandmother's home, we received the quilt with many other beautiful antiques. My mother found this quilt and another in a trunk in a storage shed in the backyard.... [W]hen I had to dispose of my mother's things, the quilt came to me...."

In the trunk with the quilt was a note:
«tab»"This quilt was made in Fredrick [sic] County, Maryland in 1820 [sic], by Sarah Rannabarger [sic] Snouffer. The quilt was brought to Missouri in 1850 by W. H. Snouffer. In 1911 it was brought to Iowa by Miss Lucy Snouffer."

The quilt could have been made by Sarah Elizabeth Snouffer, perhaps about 1845, or it could have been made by her mother, Elizabeth Ellen Ranneberger about 1820.

If the quilt was made in 1820, it would have to have been sewn by Sarah's mother, Elizabeth Ellen Ranneberger, because Sarah was not born until 1830. If it was brought to Missouri in 1850 by Sarah's brother William H. Snouffer, then it is more likely that it was sewn by Sarah around 1845. Two reasons support this theory. (1) The quilt is in excellent condition, showing little signs of use; had it been used for 30 years (1820 to 1850) before William H. Snouffer took it to Missouri, one would expect the quilt to display greater signs of wear and age. (2) It is quite probable that Sarah presented the quilt to her brother as a farewell gift when he left Maryland to move to Missouri, or she may have given it to him earlier as a wedding present when he married Sarah Bear/Baer in 1851. [Thanks are owed to Karen Beth Knecht for suggesting these ideas in her booklet «i»The Westward Trail of Sarah Snouffer's Quilt«/i»(2004).]

While the quilt remained in Missouri for some years, eventually it migrated to Iowa. William H. and Sarah Bear Snouffer had 8 children; both daughter Mary Eleanor and her brother James migrated to Iowa in 1886. Mary married Henry Clay Laub in January, 1898. Lucy, who seems to have inherited the quilt, moved to Iowa around 1901, brought the quilt with her, and lived with the Laubs for many years. (Although the note found in the trunk says that the quilt came to Iowa in 1911, it is badly faded and may indeed read 1901.) When Lucy died in 1940 the quilt remained with the Laub family, until it was acquired by others, as recited above.

8299 «i»Old Parochial Register, Cnty of Argyll, Kildalton Parish,«/i» vol. 541/1, records Duncan's baptism: "1793 *** May 22. Duncan[,] son to Nicol Campbell[,] Lirabus." (LDS Film 1041079, frame 72).

«i»They Came to Mara… Pioneers of Mara Township, circa 1829-1900,«/i» p. 124 (c. 1993) records:
«tab»"Islay native, Duncan Campbell, was living in Mara by 1848 when he married Christina McNabb, the widow of Peter McMillan. Christina left Islay with her children Mary, Peter and Ann, in approximately 1847. On 29 February, 1848, Cursty McNab [sic] and Duncan Campbell, both residents of Mara, were married by Rev. MacMurchy. Duncan's marital status was listed as widower, while Cursty's was omitted, but the date of the marriage and the residence of the bride and groom indicated that the union was probably that of Duncan Campbell and Christina (McNabb) McMillan.
«tab»"Duncan Campbell's first wife was Jane (Leach/Leitch). It was not verified if there were other sons born to Duncan and Jane. There were two boys, namely Duncan and Archibald Campbell, residing in the Duncan Campbell household of 1852, but their kinship, if any, was not determined. Old Duncan's will, dated 5 March, 1866, named Catharine, Janet, and Jean as surviving daughters and Nichol as his son. ***
«tab»"Duncan Campbell lived on the South 1/2 of Lot 7 Con[cession] 3. This property remained in the Campbell name after Duncan's death...."

It should be noted that the 1850 Indiana census lists Elmira's parents and siblings, but does not list her. «i»1850 U.S. Census«/i», Scott Twsp, Montgomery Cnty, IN (M 432, Roll 161, stamped p. 526).

Fulton, William (I5197)
 
8307 «i»PAROCHIAL REGISTER, CO. OF AYR, KILMAURS «/i»[Parish], vol. 598/2, provides:
"Andrew Fulton. Tenth child and fifth Son of Jas. Fulton & Susannah Lambie[,] Spouses[,] Kirkton[,] born 17th baptized 27th August 1820." [LDS Film 1041388, Frame 370]

According to Francis H. Groome, «i»ORDNANCE GAZETTEER OF SCOTLAND«/i», p. 996 (London, Caxton Pub. Co.; 1903): "«b»Kirkton«/b», any Scottish hamlet, village, or small town, which is or was the site of a parish church.... The places to which it is applied are very numerous, and most of them very small. The principal ones are in the parishes of ... Kilmaurs...." 
Fulton, Andrew (I5199)
 
8308 «i»PAROCHIAL REGISTER, CO. OF AYR, KILMAURS«/i» [Parish], vol. 598/1, provides:
"1795. Dec. 30. James Fulton and Susan Lambi [sic] were married here." [LDS Film 1041388, Frames 131 & 301]

The Old Parochial Register entries recording the births of her 11 children spell Susan's name in a 7 different ways: Susan, Susana, Susanna, Susannah, Shusana, & Shusanna.

Information about her 10th child Andrew, contained in the OPRs, suggests where Susan's roots were. E.g: «i»PAROCHIAL REGISTER, CO. OF AYR, KILMAURS «/i»[Parish], vol. 598/2, provides:
"Andrew Fulton. Tenth child and fifth Son of Jas. Fulton & Susannah Lambie[,] Spouses[,] Kirkton[,] born 17th baptized 27th August 1820." [LDS Film 1041388, Frame 370]. (The OPR entry for her 11th child Mathew is similar.)

According to Francis H. Groome, «i»ORDNANCE GAZETTEER OF SCOTLAND«/i», p. 996 (London, Caxton Pub. Co.; 1903): "«b»Kirkton«/b», any Scottish hamlet, village, or small town, which is or was the site of a parish church.... The places to which it is applied are very numerous, and most of them very small. The principal ones are in the parishes of ... Kilmaurs...."

One may assume that Susan was deceased by 1841 because she is not named along with her husband in the «i»1841 Scotland Census«/i». We know that Susan died before 1858 because her daughter Mary's death register entry states that her mother was deceased when Mary died in 1858. 
Lambie, Susan (Susanna) (I5190)
