      The Renningen Parish Records, vol. 1 (1558-1618), p. 202, Taufregister for 1601, states: "30. Mai K[inder]. Tobias. V[ater]. Hanns Schnauff[er] Veytlin Sohn. M[utter]. Berbel. {??} G[evattern]. Christmann Morckh und Margretha sein Hausfr."

      The 1691 Sterberegister provides: "d. 6. 9bris A. Tobias Schnauffer aet. 90 annor. u. 4 Monath. Text. parent. Ez. 37. 3.4.5. Opffer 32x 2Hr."

      "The parents of Hans Schnauffer were Tobias and Catharine Schnauffer. ***[T]hey survived the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648), which devastated much of central Europe. Wurttemberg was particularly hard hit. One scholar said Wurttemberg was reduced from 450,000 inhabitants to 166,000 during those years." (THE SNUFFERS, p. 7, citing "The Atlantic Bridge to Germany," Sec.1, p.2.)
