«b»Few Snouffers in 'Snouffer Town'

«/i»GREENSBORO -- When students gathered to board school buses at old Jesse Wharton School on Pisgah Church Road, a driver would holler "Snouffer Town Bus now loading."

Nearly all the children who jumped aboard were named Snouffer.

They lived in what was called "Snouffer Town," a stretch of North Church Street between Charles Street and Denny Road. It was stocked with Snouffers from the 1940s through the 1980s, when numbers began declining. A house fire on July 25 [2005] drove two more Snouffers away, leaving only two. ***

But the landmark most associated with the family is Snouffer's Lakes, visible from Church at the intersection with Berryman Street. George Snouffer and his son, Charlie, built the two lakes below a house dating to the late 1800s or early 1900s. Charlie and his wife, Frances, reared 11 children and at least two horses. After Charlie and Frances died, their children and grandchildren stayed in the house.

People from all over paid to fish at Snouffer's Lakes. "They would either walk up here and pay, or we'd go down there and ask for the money," says Candy Snouffer Dickson, 32, Charlie Snouffer's granddaughter, who lived in the house until she was 25.

The house now stands charred. The recent fire that started in a window air-conditioning unit drove Rita Dickson and her son, Charles, from the house. They now live in an apartment elsewhere. ***

Dickson says that, even if the house hadn't burned, it was doomed.

A new road to a planned subdivision was set to go through it. Another subdivision on former Snouffer property already has some houses occupied. ***

«/i»GREENSBORO -- When students gathered to board school buses at old Jesse Wharton School on Pisgah Church Road, a driver would holler "Snouffer Town Bus now loading."

Nearly all the children who jumped aboard were named Snouffer.

They lived in what was called "Snouffer Town," a stretch of North Church Street between Charles Street and Denny Road. It was stocked with Snouffers from the 1940s through the 1980s, when numbers began declining. A house fire on July 25 drove two more Snouffers away, leaving only two.

The Snouffer Town's patriarch was George Snouffer (pronounced "snoffer"), who died in 1987 at 94. He came from Baltimore early in the 20th century and hobbled through life on a stiff leg that the family says resulted either from an accident at Cone Mills or from childhood polio.

Snouffer peddled goods from his car and bought acreage along both sides of the North Church Street extension. He also bought considerable property in Titusville, Fla. Snouffers still occupy the Florida land.

In the '30s, George opened an upholstery shop and mattress company in Snouffer Town. The mattress company closed in the 1990s, but the upholstery shop continues under Sonji Snouffer Setzer, a granddaughter of George and his wife, Minnie.

George and Minnie raised nine children in a house on Iris Place, just off Church. Not far from where the house stood, neighborhood residents enjoy a small park on land George Snouffer donated to the city.

But the landmark most associated with the family is Snouffer's Lakes, visible from Church at the intersection with Berryman Street. George Snouffer and his son, Charlie, built the two lakes below a house dating to the late 1800s or early 1900s. Charlie and his wife, Frances, reared 11 children and at least two horses. After Charlie and Frances died, their children and grandchildren stayed in the house.
People from all over paid to fish at Snouffer's Lakes.

"They would either walk up here and pay, or we'd go down there and ask for the money," says Candy Snouffer Dickson, 32, Charlie Snouffer's granddaughter, who lived in the house until she was 25.

The house now stands charred. The recent fire that started in a window air-conditioning unit drove Rita Dickson and her son, Charles, from the house. They now live in an apartment elsewhere.

Their departure leaves only Sonji Snouffer Setzer and her mother, Helen Snouffer, in what used to be called Snouffer Town.

Maybe it's for the best. Even though the family can count many successful members, others have been haunted by tragedy and trouble, with the fire the latest incident.

The bad times started in 1986, when Charlie Snouffer's nephew, Bill Snouffer Jr., was charged with leading a local cocaine ring. Bill taught kung fu from a Church Street building and was a bodyguard for celebrities who came to the Greensboro Coliseum.

Because the Snouffer case implicated several coliseum officials, news coverage of his arrest and trial was extensive. He avoided a possible life sentence by cooperating with authorities. He got 18 years. "It hurt our reputation,'' Candy Dickson says. "People would ask, 'Are you kin to Bill?' and I just wanted to say no." Snouffer served seven years and returned to Church Street. He was killed in a car accident during a snowstorm in 2002.

Charlie Snouffer died in 1989, two weeks after the death of his mother, Minnie. Family members think grief caused Charlie's fatal heart attack. He adored his mother and went to see her daily. "He was her baby, and she catered to him," Sonji Setzer says.

In 1993, a troubled teenager visited one of Candy Dickson's brothers at the old homeplace. In an upstairs room, he showed off a gun. The weapon accidentially discharged. The bullet went through the floor and killed Candy Dickson's aunt, Cathy Snouffer Frey, 37, who had been talking to her sister, Rita Dickson.
This year, on June 19, Jared Setzer, 23, Sonji Snouffer Setzer's son, was shot dead at his home on Church Street after an altercation concerning a woman. The killer later committed suicide.

Even the horses might have been victims of the Snouffer curse. Candy Dickson says she was told that, years ago, one fell in the lake and drowned. Another was killed when it wandered onto Church Street.

For years, a beautiful lawn sloped from the house to the edge of the lakes. After Charlie Snouffer's death, the lake's banks became overgrown. Weeds have replaced grass between the house and lakes. "Charlie loved those ponds,'' Sonji Setzer says. "They were his life. He'd give mattress sets to those who caught the biggest fish.''

Dickson says that, even if the house hadn't burned, it was doomed.

A new road to a planned subdivision was set to go through it. Another subdivision on former Snouffer property already has some houses occupied.

"It's hard to see ... all this go," says Candy Dickson. "But you have to move on."

Sonji Setzer misses the togetherness the family once enjoyed when Church Street was more rural and peaceful. "I hate Church Street," she says. "Traffic is bad, and Greenbriar and Berryman are drug hills." The two streets, built off Church in the 1960s, have been the scene of narcotic dealings and other crimes.

Make Sonji Setzer and her mother a good offer for their house and upholstery building, Setzer says, and the last two Snouffers in Snouffer Town will be gone.

"EVE holds candlelight vigil
"By Diana DeCola, ddecola@mariettatimes.com
"A local organization is taking the month of April to remind people that sexual assault is a pervasive crime, even in Marietta.
"EVE Inc., along with the Sexual Assault Intervention Network, and VOICE, the Marietta College sexual assault awareness group, held a candlelight vigil on the steps of the Washington County Courthouse Wednesday.
"They have designated April as Sexual Assault Awareness Month and are taking the time to educate people on the crime and how to prevent it. ***
"Bret Snouffer, a retired law enforcement officer from Columbus, has 25 years of experience dealing with cases of sexual assault and prevention education. Snouffer was the keynote speaker at the vigil.
"He said college campuses are not the only places young girls can be unsafe.
"'Date rape is not just happening on college campuses,' he said. 'It's happening in high schools. It's happening in junior high schools.'
"Snouffer said the crime has a ripple effect, impacting everyone around the victim. He said the crime is taken very seriously in Ohio.
"'Rape is a first degree felony in Ohio,' he said.
"Snouffer said crimes resulting in death are of equal or lesser offense than rape in Ohio.
"'"That's how serious this crime is,' he said. 'Sex is simply the weapon that is used.' *** " See http://www.mariettatimes.com/news/story/new65_46200680130.asp (accessed Apr 2006)

Bret was a co-owner of a clothing store in Delaware, OH, named "Snouffer Apparel." The following story appeared in "Connect2OWU," the on-line E-magazine of Ohio Wesleyan University:
"If you are looking for the latest fashions from Mossimo, Polo, Izod, Levi's, and other leading labels, you no longer have to travel beyond downtown Delaware to find the designer duds.
"Snouffer Apparel, 26 N. Sandusky St., opened its doors on October 13 to provide the community with high fashion at low prices. Owners Lisa Beaty and Bret Snouffer say they have men's, women's, and children's clothes from many leading clothiers at a fraction of their original prices.
"'All of our clothes are new, first-quality items,' Beaty says. 'We get that question a lot. This is not irregular, or outlet-store merchandise.'
"Most department stores turn over their inventory every 28 days to entice shoppers to keep coming back, Snouffer explains. It's this merchandise — along with other shelf-pulls and overstock items — that Snouffer Apparel makes available to its customers.
"'I've seen items for $60 at Macy's that we have for $8 here,' Snouffer says, adding that just like the big department stores, he and Beaty plan to continually add new merchandise and turn over their inventory regularly.
'We anticipate having all new selections every 30 days,' Snouffer says. 'It's always going to change. So I tell people that if you don't see something you like, you should come again. And if you do see something you like, you should grab it.'
"What's sure to grab the attention of shoppers is the store's sophisticated look and spacious interior. Snouffer Apparel boasts 2,500 square feet of retail space and a décor that features pale avocado-colored walls, sculpted carpet, dramatic lighting, and popular music. A flat screen TV is being added this week to ensure no one misses the latest sports competition.
"The changes will be striking to anyone who remembers the store's days as a Mexican restaurant, complete with chili-pepper red walls. 'There's a lot of paint on those walls,' Beaty says. 'A lot of paint.'
"One thing that remains is the room-sized safe, which has been part of the historic building since it was built in the 1850s. These days, the former bank safe serves as a very secure dressing room. Serving as a table inside the dressing room is another historic safe, also too large to move.
"The building's history appeals to Snouffer, who grew up in Delaware and who remembers when the site housed Wilson's, a longtime clothing store.
"When he and Beaty began talking about opening their own store, Snouffer immediately thought of Delaware. Beaty, a Columbus resident, was quickly convinced.
"'This town has just been unbelievably friendly,' she says. 'I love it here.'
"'Things just dropped right into place for us,' Snouffer adds.*** "
http://connect2.owu.edu/issues/20071024/ourTown/snoufferApparel.html (24 Oct 2007).

"A second downtown Delaware business has announced it will soon shut its doors for good. Snouffer Apparel, 26 N. Sandusky St., will close on March 28.
"Last week, Saltbox Interiors and Sleep Shop, 43-49 N. Sandusky St., announced it is in the process of closing and expects to be out of business soon. The owners of both downtown stores said the recession caused their closure.
"Opened in October 2007 as the store with 'something for everyone,' Snouffer's was billed as a clothing shop for the entire family, similar to downtown stores of years past, such as Parker's Men's Store and Wilson's C. J.
"The decision to close was made about three weeks ago, said Bret Snouffer, co-owner of the business with partner Lisa Beaty.
"'We'd been up in the air a couple months on what we could do and how to do it,' Snouffer said. After supplementing the business with their own cash, Snouffer decided it was time to close.
"Customers are learning of the decision mostly by word of mouth, he said. hey are kind of surprised. They hate to see us go. We had a lot of people say now we have to drive back to Columbus.'
"Business at Snouffer's started strong but declined alongside the economy. The first Christmas was really good and the summer was also good, Snouffer said. But sales declined in December and had hit bottom by January, he said.
"'There's nobody down here. We knew what the breaking point was when we started, but no one knew the economy would go the way it did,'" Snouffer said.
"The community has been understanding of the decision to close, he said.
"Once the business is gone Beaty will return to her family's store fixture business in Columbus. Snouffer plans to help out there as well.***
"With Delaware County being the fastest growing in the state and one of the fastest in the nation, he said it was shocking to him to see area businesses closing down frequently. 'People need to spend money to see the downtown survive. That's economics 101,' he said. Making the decision to close the business has been difficult, Snouffer said.
"'We like Delaware. I grew up here. I have a natural love for Delaware. But we still live here and I have other irons in the fire,' he said.
"Delaware will bounce right back. I'm confident of it. And I'll be a part of that," Snouffer said."

7572 The Idaho Falls, ID, newspaper Post Register (27 Jul 1999), reported:
"RIGBY - An Idaho Falls man who held police at bay for more than three hours Monday is being held in the Jefferson County Jail for attempting to kidnap a Ririe bank employee earlier in the day. It took police hours Monday afternoon to convince Tom Snouffer Jr., 48, to turn himself in. He had threatened to commit suicide in a pickup truck near Ammon, before surrendering peacefully. While Bonneville County officers negotiated with Snouffer, FBI agents and Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies were investigating his connection to an attempted kidnapping in Ririe. FBI agents spent most of Monday evening questioning Snouffer, but police would not say why they believe the two incidents are connected. FBI officials refused to comment, saying the investigation was on-going. Snouffer is being charged with attempted kidnapping and attempted robbery, said Capt. LaVar Summers of the Jefferson County Sheriff' s Department. The saga began early Monday morning when Georgia Diaz of Ririe reported a 6-foot-tall, bulky white male had tried to kidnap her. She told Jefferson County deputies a white man appeared at her door around 8:15 a.m. and talked his way into her house. Deputies said he tried to take Diaz hostage, but she managed to escape through a bedroom window. She ran to a neighbor' s house and called 911. Deputies said the intruder suspected the woman had escaped and fled the scene in a full-sized purple car. Because Diaz is a Ririe Bank of Commerce employee, officials believe it was part of a bank robbery plot. "We think it was a bank extortion plot," said Lois Poole of the Jefferson County Sheriff' s Department. About 1:30 p.m. Bonneville County Sheriff' s deputies received a call from a man, later identified as Snouffer, who said he wanted to kill himself. Snouffer was parked in a car near Ammon with a gun in his lap. Shortly after the call, about a dozen deputies surrounded him at 49th South near the intersection of Ammon Road. Deputies closed about a quarter-mile of 49th South during the standoff. Deputies also evacuated two nearby homes. One was under construction and had workers in it. Two women were in the other one. Snouffer, sitting cross-legged on a canal bank near his parked pickup truck, negotiated with officers for more than three hours. He also asked for cigarettes. As negotiations continued, a few SWAT team members with rifles walked up 49th South. The team was brought in to protect officers and to keep the man from hurting himself, said sheriff' s spokesman Sgt. Karl Casperson...."

The in-court arraignment proceedings were reported in the Post Register (28 Jul 1999):
"As Judge Michael Kennedy read the charges against Tom Snouffer on Tuesday, the Idaho Falls man' s family sat silently in the Jefferson County courtroom, watching in disbelief. His wife, Garnalee, clutched a carton of Doral Light cigarettes, a present for her jailed husband. His parents, Donna and Thomas Snouffer Sr., tried to contain their emotions. None could believe the 48-year-old electrician, whose business had fallen on hard times, was being accused of attempting to kidnap a Ririe bank employee so he could use her in a robbery. Or that the FBI believes he is responsible for a December 1998 Shelley bank robbery. "We're just trying to deal with this ourselves," his mother, Donna, said in a telephone interview. "He's one of the kindest people. He would do anything for anybody. ... This has just been a shock to us." Snouffer sat by himself during the 20-minute arraignment, staring straight ahead, not glancing back to look at his family. The somber Snouffer waived his right to a preliminary hearing, refused to post a $200,000 bond and told the judge he didn't want the case to go to trial. He just wanted to talk to a public defender. "I have no interest in putting this to trial," Snouffer said. "I just want to consult an attorney about a few matters." Snouffer is charged with three felony counts: attempted robbery, attempted kidnapping and unlawful use of a destructive device - a bomb. *** " http://www.postregister.com/story.php?accnum=43286-072899&today=1999-07-28&keywords=snouffer

The Idaho Falls, ID Post Register (29 Feb 2000):
"POCATELLO - An Idaho Falls man will spend 10 years and one month in federal prison for the robbery and attempted robbery of two eastern Idaho banks. United States District Judge B. Lynn Winmill sentenced Thomas Foster Snouffer Jr. on Monday on charges of bank robbery and attempted bank robbery. The 46-year-old electrician pleaded guilty in October to the December 1998 robbery of the Bank of Commerce' s Shelley branch and the July 1999 attempted robbery of the bank' s Ririe branch. "Mr. Snouffer, I must confess, this is one of the unusual cases I have faced in my 12 years on the bench," Winmill said. "It's as though you were very, very smart and at the same time very, very stupid." Snouffer confessed to the robbery and attempted robbery in July 1999 after a three-hour standoff in Ammon with Bonneville County Sheriff's deputies. Snouffer had called the deputies threatening suicide. During the standoff he dropped hints to a negotiator that he had tried to rob a bank earlier in the day. Snouffer surrendered peacefully and was taken to the Jefferson County Jail. While there he admitted to FBI agents that he had tried to rob the Ririe bank earlier in the day and robbed the Shelley bank in December 1998. "At the time he confessed, he was not a suspect," Assistant U.S. Attorney Jack Haycock said Monday. "We had a description and the FBI was looking. But we don' t know for sure whether we would have found Mr. Snouffer." Snouffer left no clues when he robbed the Shelley bank, Haycock said. He disguised himself as a postal worker and forced his way into branch manager Merri Freeman' s home. He attached a fake bomb to her neck and waist and ordered her to withdraw money from the bank. She drove her car to deliver the money, following instructions posted on telephone poles to get to the drop-off site, where she later got instructions how to detach the fake bomb. Snouffer used the same tactics when he tried to rob the Ririe branch. He entered Georgia Diaz's home with a fake bomb after inquiring about an automobile of hers. But Diaz managed to escape out a bedroom window. Snouffer stashed the fake bomb and fled in a rental car but left some notes behind, Haycock said. Haycock said Snouffer surveyed the women's homes and plotted in advance how the robberies would be carried out. "The planning in these crimes was just amazing," he said. In court Monday, Freeman and Diaz said their lives had been forever changed. "We were stripped of our safety and security," Diaz said as she fought back tears. Freeman said she lived in fear every day. "My life exploded into a million pieces when Mr. Snouffer came into my home," she said. Snouffer accepted responsibility for the crimes. Before he was sentenced, he said he would lose people who are important to him because of the crimes, and that he caused shame and humiliation to his friends and family. "To all these people to say I am sorry seems like a hollow phrase," said Snouffer, who was clad in yellow Bannock County Jail clothes. In addition to prison time, Winmill ordered Snouffer to pay $66,585 in restitution and complete three years supervised release once he is out of prison. Under federal statutes, each of the robbery charges carried a maximum 20-year prison sentence." http://www.postregister.com/story.php?accnum=103424-02292000&today=2000-02-29&keywords=snouffer

According to her son Bill, Berneice graduated with honors in 1925 from Coe College, Cedar Rapids, IA. By 1935, when Bill was born, she was an elementary school teacher in Robinson, IL. Her favorite subjects were English and mathematics. When the family moved to Kansas City, MO, in the summer of 1946, Berneice landed a teaching job in the Kansas City, KS, public school system, teaching at various elementary and high schools throughout the district. She also taught English and math at the Kansas City, KS, Junior College. Among her other duties she collected tickets at home basketball games. Her career was devoted to teaching.

As for the spelling of her name, her son Bill advised that he possessed a birthday book in his mother's own handwriting in which her name is spelled Berneice. Further, that her last will and testament also spelled her name with "ei" rather than "ie."

When Berneice died in Sept. of 1983, William Noel Snouffer, husband of her sister Corinne ["Cornie"], who had died in May the same year, wrote to Berneice's sons Bill and Bruce, as follows:
"I am saddened by the death of Be - she was a wonderful person and meant so much to [your] Aunt Cornie. It was Be who encouraged her to go to college. It was Be who sent her money to help while in college - for Cornie had lost her few dollars when the banks were closed [in the 1930s]. And it was Be who sent Cornie money so she could join the Delta Delta Delta sorority. Be had not been able to be a sorority member while in college, so she wanted her 'little sister' to have that experience. And Be would send her dresses to Cornie at Coe [College] so Cornie would have some new dresses to wear to a dance or party. She looked up to her older sister and loved her very much...."

7589 The Kildalton Parish Marriage Register, 1826, records: "April 1 - Donald Campbell and Nancy MacNabb, both in this parish, have given in their banns in order to marriage and married on the 6th." Parochial Register, Cnty. of Argyll, Kildalton Parish, GROS vol. 541 / 0020-0142, Frame 334; General Register Office for Scotland, New Register House, 3 West Register St., Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 3YT; http://www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/index.html (2008).

The 1841 Oa Parish census, p. 4, lists her husband "Don'd" Campbell and his family, living in "Lirabuss." Donald's age is listed as 40 (the 1841 census ages are notoriously unreliable) and his occupation was farming. His family consisted of his wife Nancy, 30, and two boys, one Nicol, 18, and another Nicol, 10; all were born in Argyll. (Ibid)

It is assumed that the 18-yr old Nicol was Donald's nephew, son of his older brother John; the two brothers Donald and John are separated by one household, that of "Alex'r" Campbell, 45, possibly another relative.

The 1851 Canadian census records Nancy living with the family of her brother-in-law John Campbell. On successive lines, the census lists the following Campbells: John, aged 63 [birth year 1788]; Nancy, 47 [1804]; [and other members of John's family] "Nicolas," 28 [1823]; Margaret, 59 [1792]; Archibald, 26 [1825]; "Alex," 24 [1827]; Daniel [sic; Donald?], 20 [1831]; Duncan, 17 [1834]; and Catherine, 21[1830]. All were born in Scotland. 1851 Census of Canada West, Mara & Rama Twsps, Ontario Cnty, Canada West (Sch. A, Roll C 11743, stamped p. 33; lines 2-10).

The 1861 census for Mara, Canada West, lists a large number of Campbells, without clearly differentiating families. They are: John Campbell, 71, a farmer born in Scotland, married in "1818"; Margaret, 68, b. Scotland, m. in "1818"; Nicol, 38, b. Scotland, m. in 1853; "Archd," 36, b. Scotland, m. in 1854; Isabella, 23, b. in "C.W." [presumably "Canada West"]; Flora, 28, b. CW; the following children, all born in "C.W.": Donald, 7; Duncan, 6; John, 4; Flora, 2; "Archd," 1; Jannet, 5; Mary, 4; John, 2; and Donald, 26, b. C.W.; Duncan, 25, b. Scotland; Ann, 54, b. Scotland. 1861 Census for Canada West, Mara, Ontario, Canada (Roll C-1057, p. 2, lines 17-33).

"Natives of Islay, Argyleshire [sic], Scotland, ... Donald Campbell and his wife Nancy, were living in South Mara by 1852.... Donald passed away in 1858. By the time of the 1861 census, Donald's widow, Anne [sic], resided with John and Margaret and family." Mara Township Corp., They Came to Mara … Pioneers of Mara Township, circa 1829-1900, p. 126 (Bechin, Ontario, Canada: Corp. of the Township of Mara; c. 1993).

They Came to Mara (Ibid, p. 127) lists Nancy as "Nancy/Annie." Malcolm Campbell's website "My Campbell Ancestry" reflects that information and also lists her birth year as 1806.
