  • Notes 
    • Elizabeth Arthur and her husband Jacob were first cousins -- her mother Barbara Rinehart was a sister of Christina Rinehart, Jacob's mother.

      Elizabeth is mentioned in her father's will probated in 1813. Frederick County Will Book, RB 1, pp. 359-361.

      The 1820 census (recorded on 6 Nov 1820) lists "Jacob Snouffer" and his family by age: 2 males under 10 [John and Joseph David ?], 1 at 10-16 [William ?], and 1 at 26-45 [Jacob ?]; 1 female under 10 [Lydia Ann ?], 1 at 16-26 [??] and 1 at 26-45 [Elizabeth Arter]. The family also had one male slave, aged 14-26. 1820 U.S. Census, Emmitsburg, Frederick Cnty, MD (M 33, Roll 43, stamped p. 159).

      The 1850 Maryland census lists Elizabeth, 61, living with her husband Jacob Snouffer, 66. Also in the household were their children: Joseph, 33; Mary, 22; and William, 19. 1850 U.S. Census, Emmitsburg, Frederick Cnty, MD (M 432, Roll 292, stamped p. 167); M.F. Hitselberger & J.P. Dern, BRIDGE IN TIME, THE COMPLETE 1850 CENSUS OF FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND, p. 167 (Monocacy Book Co., Redwood City, CA: 1978).
    • (Research):
      There is a minor discrepency about birth dates. THE SNUFFERS, p. 80, gives the date 16 Dec 1786, which I have used, although it does not give a specific cite to authority. NAMES IN STONE, p. 1070, gives no dates. Mary Spangler, in her letter of 7 Jan 1980 to Jim Wood, author of THE SNUFFERS, states Elizabeth was born in 1786 and died in 1862, and she cites a report from Elizabeth T. Haley Hess to the Maryland Genealogical Society. Finally, the 1850 Census of Frederick County, MD, Borough of Emmitsburg, lists "Elizabeth Snouffer, 61, Female, born in Md." According to the Census, then, her birth year is about 1789.
