Margaret's father died in 1865, and it appears Margaret has come in to her inheritance, which must have been substantial for Margaret to have received a sum this large, especially considering the sums inherited by her brothers.  Listed next to Margaret's brother, James EDER (? 49, b. PA, $5000, wife Sarah), who is next to Margaret's brother, John EDER (? 35, b. PA, $4000, wife Sarah).

Thomas's father may have been born in Germany, but his mother was born in Pennsylvania.  "Saul." has to be a misreading of "Saml."
