Misc. Notes
Suitland History 1976:830
Merchant in Suitland (Storekeeper in the 1900s) He had a store, a bar and a bowling alley in one building about 1900. Located on the corner where he lived between the present water tower and the road. It faced Silver Hill Road. He raised game chickens and had rooster fights in the back. Arthur was the sheriff and had a jail near his house.

The Wood Ibis in VA and MD. On July 20, 1896, an adult Tantalus loculator was killed by Mr. Rudolph Thiele in his barnyard at Silver Hill, MD near the District of Columbia line. There were two; the other, an immature bird, flew away about half a mile and was killed soon afterwards on the same day by Mr. Arthur Suit of Suitland. Both were mounted for the above named gentlemen, and I saw the fresh skins.831

Atlantic Reporter832 Similar wording of same proceeding833
MD Court of Appeals: Vol 55 Part 1 Pg 382: (97 MD 539) 30 Jun 1903: Suit et ux. v. Suit
“This appeal is from a decree of the lower court declaring that the estate of S. Taylor Suit is entitled in equity to the property in dispute, and restraining Arthur B. Suit from setting up any further claim thereto. The questions involved arise in the following manner: Arthur B. suit filed a bill of complaint charging that he is entitled to a one-third undivided interest in certain land, particularly described in the bill (and which will be referred to hereafter for convenience as the “Brown dower land”), and that the defendants named in the bill are entitled to the other two-thirds. The prayer of the bill is for a sale for the purpose of division. After proper proceedings, a decree for the sale of the property was passed. The trustee named therein made and reported a sale of part of the land, and an audit was made, wherein one-third of the proceeds of sale were assigned to Arthur Bingham Suit. The trustee thereupon reported to the court that Rosa P. Suit claimed the amount which had been allowed by the audit to Arthur B. Suit, that only a small part of the land had been sold, and that by reason of Rosa suit’s (sic) claim the trustee cannot make sale of the residue, and prayed that Arthur B. Suit and Rosa P. Suit, as widow & trustee of her children (whose names are unknown to the petitioner) may be required to answer, etc. Both of these parties answered this petition, & asked the court to determine to whom the proceeds of the sale of the one undivided third interest of the Brown land legally & equitably belonged. Testimony was taken by both parties, & on the 28th day of August 1902, the court decreed that “the estate of S. Taylor Suit was entitled to the property & the proceeds of any sale thereof.” From this decree Arthur Bingham Suit has appealed. ....
... transactions occurring subsequently between S. T. Suit & his son, Arthur. S. T. Suit was indebted to one Charles K. Bingham in a large amount. His claims were placed in (George T.) May’s hands, as trustee, with power to sue for the same or arrange ‘in some mode that would secure them, & to hold the proceeds’ for the benefit of Arthur Bingham Suit after Bingham’s death, as per letter (Jacksonville, FL Nov 30, 1875 from C.K.Bingham) ....
In view of what we have said, it follows that we are of the opinion that the proof shows that the title & interest to the property in dispute is in Arthur B. Suit. The decree must, therefore, be reversed, & the cause remanded for further proceedings in conformity with the views herein expressed.
Decree reversed, & cause remanded for further proceedings.“
