    • The News [Frederick, MD], p. 9 (25 Jun 1947):
      "The tenth annual reunion of the Bready family was held Sunday on the original homestead, 'Roger's Chance,' near Norwood, Montgomery County, with some fifty members in attendance. It was nearly 100 years ago that David Bready, descendant of the original George Bready, of Pennsylvania, established the family there in 1849.
      " *** [Among births during the year was] a daughter, Charlotte Marie Harper, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Southern [sic] Snouffer Harper, born last August, granddaughter of Lucy B. Snouffer...."
