  • Notes 
    • Elizabeth's family and descendants are discussed in M.J. Fisher & R.P. Arter, THE ARTER/ARTHUR FAMILY OF FOUNTAIN VALLEY, pp. 168-172 (1979).

      According to vol. 9, MARYLAND GERMAN CHURCH RECORDS, p. 35 (C.T. Zahn & F.S. Weiser, eds; 1993), Krider's church records state that Elizabeth was born and baptized in 1771, although her tombstone apparently has the date as 1772.

      Elizabeth is buried in Krider's (St. Benjamin's) Lutheran Church Cemetery, Westminster, MD, in sec. B, row 12, lot 47. Vol. 5, part 1, CARROLL COUNTY CEMETERIES, p. 99 (Carroll County Genealogical Soc'y, Westminster, MD: 1999), where her name is spelled "Elisabeth Beyer" and no death date is recorded; but her birth date is given as 12 Nov 1772, and the stone says she lived 45 yrs, 2 months, 10 days, which equals 22 Jan 1818.

      According to "Old Krider's Cemetery Inscriptions," vol. 16, Carrolltonian, p. 9 (1996), the tombstone states:
      "Zum Andenken von | Elisabeth Beyer | am Tochter von Michael | und Catharina ____ | ____ | gebohren den 12sten November | 1772 ____ | Gabriel Beyer | den 20th November 1792 | in ihren Ehestande gezeugt | 10 Kinder 6 Sohne und 4 | Tochter und brachte ihr Alter | auf 45 Jahr 2 Monate und 10 | Tage."
