  • Notes 
    • The 1900 census lists Mary, 30, born in Maryland in Dec 1869, married for 10 years to her husband Philip J., and living with him and 3 of 5 children: Joseph B, Francis E, and Philip A. 1900 U.S. Census, Emmitsburg Dis, Frederick Cnty, MD (T 623, Roll 622, stamped p. 186). (Unfortunately somebody has written a series of numbers over her middle initial, making it illegible. Robert Hess read the tombstone to show the middle initial as "D.")

      Jacob Holdcraft lists Mary's dob as 1 Dec 1862, and her middle initial as "E". J.M. Holdcraft, NAMES IN STONE, p. 1070 (1966).

      The Maryland State Archives' Dep't of Health, Bureau of Vital Statistics has Mary's name as "May D. Snouffer." It lists her date of death as 2 Jun 1907 and gives her age as 37, which computes to a birth year of 1869 or 1870. For that reason, I have used the 1900 census birth month of Dec 1869 and Holdcraft's date of 1 Dec.
