  • Notes 
    • "Rachael Snouffer, 25 Jan. 1790-16 Nov. 1855, married Jacob Myers, 12 [sic] April 1784-23 March 1857. Their graves are in the Silver Run Cemetery, Carroll County. They had 11 children - John, Jacob Jr., Henry, Edmond, Noah, Samuel, and five daughters, names unknown." (THE SNUFFERS, p. 81) [The daughters' identities have been discovered subsequent to the 1989 publication of The Snuffers.]

      The 1850 census lists "Jacob C. Myers," 64, living with his wife Rachel and three of their children: Emanuel, 21; Rachel, 19; and Noah, 18. All were born in Maryland. Jacob and his two sons were farmers. Surrounding them are other families of Myers and Frocks and Hahns. 1850 U.S. Census, Dist. 3, Carroll Cnty, MD (M 432, Roll 289, stamped p. 261B).

    • Jacob is buried in St. Mary's Lutheran/Reformed Cemetery, Silver Run, Carroll Cnty, MD, in the "old section," stone # 2, where his birth date is stated as 17 Apr 1784. See vol. 5, part 1, CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES, p. 42 (Carroll County Genealogical Soc'y; 1999)("By the 1920s the old cemetery was in such a state of disrepair that the tombstones were taken up and reset in 2 long double rows with an attempt made to group related tombstones together. ... The new cemetery (1880) is laid out in a traditional manner." Id. at 5).

      The cemetery stone reads: "In | memory of | Jacob Myers | born april 17 | 1784 died | march 23 1857 | Aged 72 Years | 11 M & 6 D".

      J.T. Scharf, HISTORY OF WESTERN MARYLAND, pp.866-867 (1882), says: "St. Mary's Church is on "Silver Run," and is the joint place of worship of the German Reformed and Lutheran congregations. The present church edifice is of stone, and was erected in 1822.... It occupies the site of the first church, a rude log structure, built in 1768...."
