29 John Eyerman, The Ancestors of Marguerite Eyerman: A Study in Genealogy 16 (Free Press Book and Job Print 1898).  We see from the deed record below that the Peter Schnyder who owned this property died in 1823, and therefore is not the younger Peter Schnyder (1790 – 1862) that Eyerman notes at page 44.   This property owner is also not the same person as yet another Peter Shnyder, who died in 1774.  See Deed, Casper Doll & Henry Allshouse, Administrators for Peter Shnyder, deceased, to Peter Kachlein the Younger, A4  85 (13 June 1776)(recital that Orphans Court appointed the Administrators for this estate in 1774).
