She was born 8 Feb 1867 at Mitchell's Ridge, Raleigh County, the daughter of Will and Nancy (Cadle) Smith.... James Henry's brother, Taz, also joined him in Oregon to homestead but soon sold him his claim and returned to Raleigh County. Ethel Kate (Snuffer) Sirrine of Roseburg, Ore., a daughter of James Henry and Julia Anne, recalled their early years in the eastern Oregon wilderness: 'When we arrived there was only a tiny one-room house and a little spring by a clump of willows, and rattlesnakes all over the place. When father was away for the night, mother, Don and I would put the table over the window and small logs bracing the door for fear the Indians would come. I was in high school when I first saw an Indian. We would pick the wild huckleberries and they were the only fruit except that in cans from the stores. On the 160-acre homestead my parents made a wonderful home -- big fields, two orchards, good stock. I loved horses and this was my special joy. My dad liked good stock and was always kind to them.' James Henry Snuffer died 4 April 1937 and Julia Ann Snuffer died 8 April 1939. Both are buried at Promise." THE SNUFFERS, p. 186.

[They had 8 children.]" Richard S. Wheeler, "Seabrooks of Maryland and Pennsylvania," vol. 34, Maryland Genealogical Soc'y Bull., p. 148 (1993).

84 "John Snouffer [was] born about 1779. His wife was Mary Magdalena Baumgardner.... John died 18 Sept. 1823 at the age of 44.... He is buried in the Thomas family cemetery two miles east of Point of Rocks, Frederick County [MD]." (THE SNUFFERS, p. 80).

John's father's will, signed 5 Dec 1809 and probated 12 Mar 1810, among other things, bequeathed "unto my son John Snouffer the sum of twenty five pounds lawfull money over and above the amount already by him received from me & that to be in full for his part of my real estate ... and ... share and share alike with my other children as to my personal estate...." Frederick County Will Book RB #1, p. 82.

The 1820 census lists "John Snoufer" and his family, consisting of 2 boys under 10 [John, 1, and Daniel, 9]; 2 boys 10 - 16 [George Winfield, 14, and Michael, 15]; one male 26-45 [John, 41]; 3 females under 10 [Mary, ?, Catherine, 6, and an unknown girl]; 1 female, 10 -16 [Rebecca, 11], and 1 female 26 - 45 [Maria Magdalena, 36].

[Indexers read the written name as "Snowfer," but I read it as "Snoufer."]

William J. Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, p. 170 (1928), while writing of the "old Thomas burying ground in the southern end of Carrollton Manor," reports: "John Snouffer, died 1823, age 41 [sic] years."

John's tombstone in the Thomas family cemetery, which is 1.5 miles east of Point of Rocks, reads: "In | Memory of | JOHN SNOUFFER | who departed this life | on the 18th day of Septe | mber 1823, Aged 44 | Years 5 Months and | 2 days".

John could be considered the progenitor of the clan of Ohio Snouffers because, after his death in 1823, his wife moved all of their children to Ohio.

85 "John [was] born about 1786. He was the father of Isaac Snuffer of Glen White, W.Va." (THE SNUFFERS, p. 62, citing 1850 Franklin Cty, VA Census, p. 150; & Montgomery Cty, VA Deed Book-IJ, p. 306) In a subseqent communication, Mr. Wood indicated that John Snuffer, his great-great grandfather, was born 24 Mar 1785 and baptized 4 Jun 1785 at the Schwartzwald Reformed Ch. (Lutheran), Jacksonwald, Berks Cnty, PA. (Email to Wm. C. Snouffer, 13 Jan 2006).

The 1790 U.S. Census for Pennsylvania lists his father "Snauffer, Jacob", living in Berks County, Robeson Township. The census lists 1 "free white male" over 16 [Jacob], 1 under 16 [son John], and 3 "free white females" [wife Catharin and daughters Polly and Caty]. 1790 U.S. Census, Robeson twsp, Berks Cnty, PA (M 637, Roll 8, stamped p. 116). Also see HEADS OF FAMILIES AT THE FIRST CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES TAKEN IN THE YEAR 1790, PENNSYLVANIA, p. 41 (Genealogical Pub. Co., Baltimore, MD: 1966).

"John Snuffer quickly followed his sister Caty into matrimony, receiving a marriage bond in neighboring Franklin County 1 June 1816. His bride was Hannah Huff." (THE SNUFFERS, p. 73) "Like his father, John was also a road overseer, serving for several years." (Id. p. 74)

The 1820 census lists "Snuffer, John" and family living in Montgomery Cnty, VA. The census lists 1 male under 10 [William], 1 male 26-45 [John], 1 female under 1 [Polly], and 1 female 26-45 [Hannah]. 1820 U.S. Census, Montgomery Cnty, VA (M 33, Roll 130, stamped p. 354).

"After his marriage to Hannah Huff, John Snuffer, youngest of the three children of Jacob Snuffer [sic], continued to work his Floyd County, Va. farm at the Head of Little River for 22 years. Seven of their eight children, including Isaac of Glen White, W.Va., were born there. *** [In 1837] John Snuffer and his family left the Head of Little River, where he had lived since his father moved there from Pennsylvania in 1791. Heading south along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains a distance of roughly 12 miles, they settled on the headwaters of a mountain stream in neighboring Franklin County with the unlikely name of Rennet Bag, also known as Runnetbag.... [His] farm was 2,591 feet above sea level. And like the Snuffer lands at the Head of Little River it too is now crossed by the Blue Ridge Parkway." (THE SNUFFERS, p.85)

86 "Josaphine and [her mother] Sarah Snouffer continued to live in Fayette Township until Sarah's death in April 1906.... Josaphine never married and lived the rest of her years with either a sister, [a] niece or as a housekeeper. Josaphine died in February of 1942 and is buried with her mother and father at the McAlisterville Union cemetery, which originally was beside a Lutheran church, in Pennsylvania." Lois Hall Snouffer, From Schnaufer to Snouffer, p. 8 (2013). Snouffer, Josaphine (I11083)
 
87 "Joshua J" is listed in the 1870 Iowa census as a 5-yr old boy, born in Iowa, living with his parents, siblings and a cousin in Cedar Rapids. 1870 U.S.Census, 1st Ward, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (M 593, Roll 405, p. 127).

The 1880 census lists "Joshua J. Jr" as a 16-yr old boy, working as a farmer, and living with his parents and some siblings. 1880 U.S. Census, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (T 9, Roll 351, stamped p. 73B).

The 1900 census shows "J.J.," 35, as born in Apr 1865, married 10 years to his wife "Mary C," 29, and children "Stanley J," 8, Helen C, 5, Phyliss I, 3, and "Parthemia M," [Gervaise] 2/12ths. Two servants also lived in the home. 1900 U.S. Census, 5th Ward, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (T 623, Roll 444, stamped p. 160).

According to L. A. Brewer & B. L. Wick, HISTORY OF LINN COUNTY, p. 695 (1911):
"*** Captain Snouffer was married to Miss Anna White, a native of Maryland, and they became the parents of fifteen children, of whom four survive the father, namely: Mrs. A. D. Stevens, of Radford, Virginia; Mrs. Frances A. Benjamin; J. J. Snouffer, Jr.; and Mrs. Virginia Snouffer McClelland, of Cedar Rapids."

According to the Iowa Supreme Court, "Bud" was "a chronic borrower and chronic litigant." See: McClelland v. Snouffer, vol. 194, Iowa Reports, p. 1387 (1923), an action by his sister Virginia against him and his estate (he died shortly after the litigation started) over "title to about 30 acres of land (spoken of in the record as the quarry property) in or near the city of Cedar Rapids." (As for being a "chronic litigant," he certainly took after his father !!)

In another case involving his father's estate, it was reported that "Bud" had borrowed money from a Cedar Rapids bank and that, for security, his parents had conveyed certain real property to the bank as trustee. See, Amidon v. Snouffer, vol. 139, Iowa Reports, p. 159 (1908).

J.J., Jr., also was involved in Texas land litigation with his mother and sister Virginia : Snouffer v. Heisig, vol. 62, Texas Civil Appeals Reports, p. 81; vol. 130, Southwestern Reporter, p. 912 (1910). The three of them sued to set aside a foreclosure and sheriff's sale of a number of lots in the "Iowa Colony" subdivision in Jefferson County. They lost in the trial court, but on appeal they prevailed because they were never informed of the pending sale and the jury was not permitted to decide the issue of Ann and J.J.'s equitable title in the land.

Regarding the family of his parents Joshua Jacob and Ann (White) Snouffer, Bertha Ina (Newens) Snouffer -- wife of JJ's grand-nephew William D. Snouffer -- wrote:
"I don't know too much about the family of Joshua Jacob Snouffer, born 2-24-1826. His wife was Ann, and their children were:
"Annie -- it must have been Harris (her son Archie Harris) and then Stevens [here she is confusing Annie and her sister Mary Ellen].
"Sis -- Frances Benjamin (one son, died young: Park Benjamin).
"Puss - Virginia McClelland - no children.
"Bud - Joshua Jacob Jr. - 4 children.
"There may have been others; I don't know....
"Bud ... was the one ... who owned and operated the quarry down by the packing house. His children were Helen, John Stanley (Young Bud), Phyllis, Gervaise...." (Undated letter from Bertha Ina (Newens) Snouffer to her son Robert Snouffer, probably in the early 1970s; punctuation added for clarity.) 
Snouffer, Joshua Jacob ("Bud") Jr. (I541)
 
88 "Little is known about Mary "Polly" Snuffer, first child of John and Hannah Snuffer. She was born about 1819, married Reuben S. Bartlett in 1841 and they eventually "went west." She is mentioned as being "deceased" in her father's will of 3 Feb. 1851." («i»THE SNUFFERS«/i», p. 109) Snuffer, Mary "Polly" (I310)

94 "Mrs. Edward (Hazel) Chord" of Palos Park, IL, was mentioned in her mother's obituary in May 1964. Her sister Ruth's obituary in Jul 2002 indicated that Hazel was still living in Palos Park, IL.

Obituary, The [Palos Heights, IL] Regional News (11 Mar 2010):
