  • Notes 
    • (Research): There are two John Bruners listed in the 1790 U.S.Census for Maryland. The first is shown as head of a family consisting of 2 males over 16 yrs of age, 4 females, and 2 slaves. The second is listed as head of a family consisting of 1 male over 16, 1 female, and no slaves. See, HEADS OF FAMILIES AT THE FIRST CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES TAKEN IN THE YEAR 1790 - MARYLAND, pp. 63, 68 (Genealogical Pub. Co. 1977).

      In August 1779 one "Brooner" was paid for "oak and hikory." In October 1779, oak and hickory were received "from Burnor." On 19 Aug 1780, "John Brunor" was paid by Frederick County "for oak." Later, on 16 Oct 1780, "Bruner" was paid; on 1 Nov 1780, "Jno. Bruner" was paid, and on 11 Nov "Bruner" was paid for oak. [Presumably these were for deliveries of firewood, perhaps to heat the county courthouse.] See «i»Clerk's Account Book, 1777-1782 [ Maryland Archives C768-1 1/40/14/25 ]«/i», in Stefanie R. Shaffer, INHABITANTS OF FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND, 1748-1800, vol. 2, pp. 170-171 (2001).

      One John Bruner, a resident of Frederick County, served as a juror in a coroner's inquest, 15 Nov 1782, regarding a man's death; the jury ruled that he died of natural causes. «i»Coroner's Inquests, 1778-1789 [ Folder 40298-5, Maryland Archives C772-1 1/41/7/34 ]«/i», Stefanie R. Shaffer, INHABITANTS OF FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND, 1750-1790, vol. 1, pp. 77-78 (2001).

      "John Bruner (merchant)" also served as a petit or trial juror in the August, 1786, term of the Frederick County Court. «i»Levy List, 1785-1790 [Maryland Archives C818-1 1/54/10/5 ]«/i», Stefanie R. Shaffer, «i»Ibid«/i», p. 110.
