  • Notes 
    • Mary Snouffer's "husband appears to have been Frederick Bayer [sic], who later married, in 1807, her sister, Barbara Snouffer...." (THE SNUFFERS, p. 80). Barbara's headstone is "standing clearly legible in the Kriders Church cemetery.... Next to her grave is that of Frederick Boyers [sic]." (THE SNUFFERS, p. 81)

      Vol. 9, MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS, p. 87 (C.T. Zahn & F.S. Weiser, eds: 1993), extracts records of Krider's or St. Benjamin's Lutheran Church as follows: "Maria, dau. of Friedr. and Cathr. Hoppe, b. 29 Dec. 1802, bp. 3 Apr. 1803. Sponsors: Friedr. Boyer and Barb. Schnauferin, single."

      The will of Frederick's father-in-law, John Snouffer, signed 5 Dec 1809 and probated 12 Mar 1810, among other things, bequeathed "unto David Bayers son of my deceased daughter Mary the sum of one hundred pounds lawfull money... [but] that the sum of fifty pounds lawfull money heretofore received from me by my son in law Frederick Bayer shall be retained or deducted out of the first payment of his share that he may be entitled to received from my estate...." Frederick County Will Book RB #1, p. 82.

      Frederick and his second wife Barbara (Angel) are buried in Krider's Lutheran Church Cemetery in sec. B, row 14; he is buried in grave 35, she in 34. See vol. 5, part 1, CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES, p. 101 (Carroll Cnty Genealogical Soc'y: 1996).

      According to "Old Krider's Cemetery Inscriptions," vol. 16, Carrolltonian, p. 11 (1996), Frederick's tombstone states:
      "In the name of the Lord | Frederick Boyers | who was born October 10th 1781 | and departed this life | February 26th 1815 aged 33 | years 5 months and 18(?) days".
