    Notes 

    • (1) Elizabeth Ann Grubb:

      NOTES:

      Evidently "Schuyler" was the "spokesman" for his siblings in their attempt to obtain delayed dependent childrens' pension from their father's Civil War service. In the application, Adam gives his exact date of birth.

      This application was abandoned in 1906, so apparently was never approved.

      According to the data in "More About" comments on Adam, in the WFT data submitted for the CD by Ms. NORDQUIST, Adam's middle name was "Schuyler". His occupation was "Preacher" (Indianapolis, South Bend, Marion and Warren, IN).

      The "Descendants of John Samuel Mau" Report states that ". . . Adam Schyler,
      called "Schyler" by relatives, was a well known preacher in the Wesley Methodist church. He preached all over Indiana.
