  • Notes 
    • F.R. Wollmershauser reported in 1987: "Veit Schnauffer, called "the young", wife Agnes, both still alive in 1604. Only one child known: Hanns b. 30 June 1574." Later in 1987 Herr Wollmershauser reported his discovery that Veit Schnauffer married Caspar Wendel's widow Catharina on 6 Aug. 1615 in Eltingen.

      The 1574 Renningen Parish Taufregister states: "Auf Mitwoch nach Peter und Pauly anno 74 ist Jungen Veit Schnauffern unnd Angnes seiner ehelichen Haussfrawen ain Khindt gebornn und getaufft worden uff nechst Freytag hernach under Hanns genennet. Die Gfattern sindt Burckhartt Fremeplin und."

      The Eltingen Parish Eheregister for 1615 reports: "Dnca. Trinitatis Nona; Veit Schnauffer Burger und Wittib[er] zu Rennigen [sic] und Catharina, Caspar Wendels seligen gewesen SchultheiBen alhie hinderlaBne Wittib." Herr Wollmershuaser summarizes: "Marriage entry of Veit Schnauffer, widower in Renningen, and Catharina widow of Caspar Wendel, mayor in Eltingen (now part of Leonberg), 6 Aug. 1615."
    • (Research):
      Because available authorities state that this Veit's son was born in 1574, I have assumed that this Veit was born about 1555, which calculates so that he would have been 19 when his son was born in 1574. Also, because this Veit was known as "the young," I have assumed that his father also was named Veit.
