  • Notes 
    • Samuel S. Thomas served as a petit or trial juror during the March, 1787, term of the Frederick County court. Levy List, 1785-1790 [ Maryland Archives C818-1 1/54/10/5 ], Stefanie R. Shaffer, INHABITANTS OF FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND, 1750-1790, vol. 1, p. 114 (2001). He served again during the terms of Nov. 1787, Nov. 1788, Aug. 1790, and Nov. 1790. Ibid, pp. 118, 122, 126, 129.

      Samuel's middle name is given as "Skinner" in the list of petit jurors for the August, 1790 term. Ibid, p. 126. Whether it's the same person or not is hard to discerne; there are other Samuel Skinner Thomases around.
