1 "At the time of his demise he was president of the State Exchange Bank and had extensive financial interests. He was one of the most successful men of this part of the state, owing not to any fortunate or adventitious circumstances, but to his keen insight, his ready discern ment concerning business conditions and his recognition of possibilities for successful accomplishment."
From the History of Marshall County 
Taber, Thomas Oliver (I798)
 
2 'The strongest character of the family' per letter from Sydney Fisher Fisher, Lucy Chickering (I673)
 
3 . Per the 1880 Census : S.S. Riffle (age 24) lived in Shelby Co., TN on a farm. This farm was co-owned by Mr. Riffle, C.S. Gandy (age 21) and W.M. Gandy (age 20). All three men were originally from Mississippi. - How did they know one another? Riffle, Samuel Scott (I216)
 
4 1. Was overseer of a cotton plantation in Ellis County, Texas owned by Earl Fort. Probably moved there because the Faucetts were already there - Sam came from Tennessee with his wife.

2. Left Ellis County to homestead in OK panhandle (near Ivanhoe OK). Sam bought a 'relinquishment', proved it, and lived there for 3 years. Then moved with his family across the line back to Texas (near Follett).

3. Early days : while living in Mississippi, Sam heard that Sherman was coming. He got on his horse and rode to warn the neighbors. Sam had a favorite horse at the time, he took her bridle off and gave her a swat on the rump - if Sherman was going to take his horse, he didn't want to see it!

4. Sam found his half-sister through a Confederate soldier's reunion in Nashville (about 1880). He went with Andy Newt Faucett, his father-in-law. Josephine's husband was asking around for Sam's whereabouts and happened to ask Andy Newt Faucett!

5. Per 1880 Census : Sam (age 24) lived in Shelby Co., TN on a farm. This farm was co-owned by Sam, C.S. Gandy (age 21) and W.M. Gandy (age 20). All three men were originally from Mississippi. - How did they know one another?

6. In later years, Sam and 2nd wife Mary lived with youngest daughter Katie and her family. Legend has it that every year on his birthday (reunion-like events) he went out into the field with a pitchfork and returned with a rattlesnake, even when he was an 'old' man.

7. Some remember that he once jumped out the hayloft with his grandson Mackey - he would have been quite old at the time, and Mackey doesn't recall it, but...

41 About Arkansas Death Index, 1914-1950
This database is an index to approximately 594,000 deaths that occurred in Arkansas between 1914 and 1950. In addition to providing the name of the deceased, the index provides the date of death, county of death, gender, race, age at time of death, volume number, and certificate number. Note that some entries may not contain all of this information.
With the information provided in this index you may be able to obtain a copy of a death certificate. The volume and certificate numbers are especially important for doing this. Death certificates can be very valuable because of the amount of information they provide (see extended description). Death certificates may be obtained from the Arkansas Department of Health. Please visit their website for more information on how to order a death certificate.
Statewide registration of births and deaths in Arkansas did not begin until February 1914. Compliance was not complete for approximately three decades. The Division of Vital Records, Arkansas Department of Health, 4815 West Markham Street, Little Rock, Arkansas 72201, has records from that date. Some local vital records for Little Rock and Fort Smith and maintained by the Arkansas History Commission. When requesting copies, include a statement of purpose and relationship.
Taken from Wendy Bebout Elloitt, "Arkansas," Red Book ed. Alice Eichholz. (Provo, Utah: Ancestry, 2004).
Modern (post-1910) death records, though comparatively recent, are steadily increasing in value. People are living longer, and death records often provide information about birth as well as death.
Modern death certificates have not been standardized throughout the United States; but, like birth certificates, most of them contain the same types of information. Most contemporary death certificates include the deceased's name, sex, race, date of death, age at the time of death, place of death, date of birth, place of birth, marital status, name of spouse, Social Security number, occupation, residence, father's name, mother's name, cause of death, and place of burial. Records from some states provide the birthplace of the deceased's parents. The Social Security number is not always included, but, when it is, it can be invaluable because other records (subject to right-of-privacy laws) may be accessible if you have the Social Security number.
As any experienced researcher knows, death records are only as accurate as the knowledge of the person who provided the information. Many informants are unaware of the name of parents or are unsure about dates and places of birth. Always try to find additional information about parents and dates and places of birth whenever possible.

42 About New Hampshire, Births and Christenings Index, 1714-1904
This database contains an index of details extracted from New Hampshire birth, baptism, and christening records.
What’s in the Index
While the earliest vital records for New Hampshire were recorded by town clerks in the mid-1600s, legislation requiring the secretary of state to compile a statewide record of vitals was not passed until 1866. Compliance improved in the 1880s and was firmly established in 1905 with the creation of the Bureau of Vital records. At this time, the Bureau dispensed cards to town and city clerks and requested transcriptions of earlier vital records. Not every town complied with all pre-1905 records, so the Bureau’s statewide collection is not considered completely comprehensive.
Sources for this index include microfilmed copies of records from the Bureau of Vital Records and Health Statistics as well as town and county clerks, church records, and family records.
Details in the entries will vary depending on the original record, but they may include
name
gender
race
birthplace
birth date
christening place
christening date
death date
age at death
father’s name, age, birthplace
mother’s name, age, birthplace
paternal grandparents
maternal grandparents
FHL film number
The FHL film number refers to a microfilm copy of the source held by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Because this database includes details extracted from family records, researchers will want to confirm facts with original and primary sources.

43 About Ohio Obituary Index, 1830s-2009, Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center

44 About Oklahoma Territorial Census, 1890 and 1907
In June 1890 a territorial census of Oklahoma was taken. It enumerated the following seven counties:

Beaver
Canadian
Cleveland
Kingfisher
Logan
Oklahoma
Payne
In 1907 a census of Indian and Oklahoma territories, comprising the proposed state of Oklahoma, was also taken. However, only the schedules for Seminole County exist. These schedules are also included in this database.
Information available in this database includes:

Enumeration place (town, county, state)

Name of individual

Relationship to the head of household

Race

Gender

Age

Place of birth*

Number of years in the U.S.*

*Only in the 1890 census.
Additional information about an individual may be listed on the original record. This information can be obtained by viewing the census image.
Why this census is important:
The 1890 U.S. Federal Census was damaged and destroyed by fire in 1921. None of the Oklahoma population schedules survived. In fact, less than 1% of all the schedules are available for research today. Because of this problem, the Oklahoma Territorial Census is a highly valuable source, as it provides a wealth of information that would otherwise be found in the Federal Census.
