  • Notes 
    • There is a document from the old Claiborne Cnty, TN, court records, that now is in the Tenn. 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 [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.)
