8305 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.

T.J.C.Williams & F.McKinsey, «i»HISTORY OF FREDERICK COUNTY«/i», pp. 919-920 (1910), state that

8310 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)
 
8311 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)

8313 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)
 
8314 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)
 
8315 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)
 
8316 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)
 
8317 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)
 
8318 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)
 
8319 There is a document from the old Claiborne Cnty, TN, court records, that now is in the Tenn.

"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 / Snuffer, David (I558)
 
8320 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)
 
8321 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)
 
8322 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)
 
8323 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)
 
8324 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)
 
8325 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)
 
8326 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."
