8301 When her son John died in 1939, The Worthington [OH] News(14 Dec 1939), reported that he was the son of "Capt. John Snouffer and Julia Rogers Snouffer," and that his parents were "among the early pioneers in this section."

The 1850 census lists her husband "John Snuffer," 32, a farmer, born in MD, living with Julia, 27, born in Ohio, and the following Ohio-born children: Ellen, 9; "Margarett," 7; John, 4; and "Sylvana," 2. Also in the home was another John, 13, whose relationship is not stated. 1850 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M432, Roll 680, stamped p. 236 B). [The penmanship of the census taker is ambiguous; the surname appears to me as "Snuffer," while his brother Michael's name is clearly spelled "Snoffer." The Ancestry.com indexer listed the surname as "Snaffer."]

The 1860 census shows "Julia Ann," 37, born in Ohio, living with her husband John Snouffer, 42, and children Ellen, Margaret, John and Sylvania, together with her mother-in-law, "Maria Snouffer," 84. 1860 U.S. Census, Worthington P.O., Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 653, Roll 962, stamped p. 307).

In 1870 the census reports that "Julia" is a 47-yr old woman, born in Ohio, "Keeping House," and living with her husband "Snoffer, John" daughter "Sintha" [a nickname for Sylvania?], 21, and 8-yr old grandson Willie Armstrong. 1870 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 593, Roll 1200, stamped p. 679).

The 1880 census shows the 4 of them still living together: "Snaffer [sic], B. John," a 62 yr old farmer, living with his wife Julia, 57, who was "keeping house," daughter Sylvania, 32, who "assists in home," and grandson William Armstrong, 19. 1880 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 9, Roll 1015, stamped p. 171)

According to the Franklin Cnty, OH, Probate Court Administration Docket 11:319 (3 Nov 1888), Julia's husband John died 21 Oct 1888. His will may be found in Franklin Cnty Will Record L:315. It bequeathed all real and personal property to his wife Julia A. Snouffer, and upon her death, the real estate was to be divided among their children.

The 1900 census lists Julia A. Snouffer, 77, born in Ohio in April 1823, and the mother of 5 children, 4 of whom are alive. She is shown as a "housekeeper" and head of a household consisting of her daughter "Sylvania," 57, a servant, "Little Cassie," 15, and a grand-nephew, William V. Preston, 24, a farm laborer. 1900 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 623, Roll 1270, stamped p. 182).

Julia is buried in Union Cemetery, SE Section (1879), Row 13. See Donald M. Schlegel, Early Memorials in Union Cemetery, Franklin County, Ohio, p. 23 (1999).

8304 When Jim Wood published The Snuffers in 1989, Gerald was living in Wasilla, Alaska. Bethel, Gerald Allen (I9912)
 
8305 When Roy completed his World War I registration on 5 Jun 1917, he reported that he was born 19 Jul 1894 in Millersport, OH; that he was then living in "Scot Town," OH, with a wife and one child; and he stated that he was a self-employed farmer. The registrar reported him as "short" and "stout," with blue eyes and dark hair.  Wall, Roy Oakly (I9785)
 
8306 When the 1910 Ohio census occurred, Clarence was living with his uncle Charles and family. Oddly, even though the census lists him as 21 years old, it also provides that he was a high school student. 1910 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 624, Roll 1183, stamped p. 202).

Clarence registered for the draft on 5 Jun 1917. He provided his birth date, indicated that he was single, and that he was working as a machine operator for the Pennsylvania RR. Later, on 15 May 1918 he enlisted and served in the military as a Private until he was honorably discharged 21 Jan 1919. Official Roster of Ohio Soldiers, Sailors and Marines in the World War, 1917-1918 , p. 16255 (F.J. Heer Printing Co., Columbus, OH: 1926), via www.Ancestry.com (accessed Feb 2008).

Clarence was living in Columbus when the census was taken in 1920. It shows him as a 31 year old railroad machinist, living with his wife Margaret, 25. 1920 U.S. Census, Ward 7, Columbus, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 625, Roll 1381, stamped p. 302B).

The 1930 census lists Clarence, a 41 year old steam railroad machinist, living with only his wife Margaret, 36, who was born in Ohio of parents who were born in Northern Ireland. (This may explain in part why the names of Patrick, Kathryn and Mary Donahue appear on the reverse side of Clarence and Margaret's tombstone in the St. Joseph Catholic cem.) 1930 U.S. Census, Columbus, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 626, Roll 1801, stamped p. 65B).

The Social Security Death Index records that "C. H. Snouffer" (SSN 717-01-2709) was born 26 Aug 1888 and died 23 Dec 1981, that he had lived in Virginia, and that he was classified among "long-time or retired railroad workers."

8308 Wilbur's obituary in the «i»Pittsburgh [PA] Post-Gazette«/i» (18 Sep 2004), states:

8314 William E. Connelley, A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans (Chicago, IL; Lewis Publ Co.: 1918), in Vol. 5, p. 2410 et seq., discusses Jesse's father's career in considerable detail, including the following:
"Albert P. McBride. In the oil and gas districts of the Southwest no name has a greater significance as an operator, developer, and as a vitalizer of the resources and industries covering several states, than that of Albert P. McBride of Independence. Mr. McBride began his operations as an oil well contractor and producer more than thirty-five years ago. He has supplied enthusiasm, faith and much of the material means necessary to develop the oil and gas resources of Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. ***
"In January, 1885, early in his business career, Mr. McBride was married at Garnett, Kansas, to Miss L. A. Clampitt.... Mr. and Mrs. McBride have had three children: *** Jesse P., who was born March 14, 1889, at Paola, Kansas, and is now engaged in business for himself in Chicago. ***"

8315 William E. Connelley, A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans (Chicago, IL; Lewis Publ Co.: 1918), Vol. 5, p. 2410 et seq., discusses her husband Albert at great length, and concludes:
"In January, 1885, early in his business career, Mr. McBride was married at Garnett, Kansas, to Miss L. A. Clampitt. Her father, J. A. Clampitt, now a retired resident of Los Angeles, California, is an extensive owner of real estate. Mr. and Mrs. McBride have had three children: Albert P., Jr., born July 14, 1887, at Paola, Kansas, who was a helpful and energetic assistant to his father in his various business enterprises, died when in the full promise of a useful career at Banning, California, June 17, 1915, aged 28.

8316 William E. Connelley, A Standard History of Kansas and Kansans (Chicago, IL; Lewis Publ Co.: 1918), Vol. 5, p. 2410 et seq., discusses McBride at great length:
"Albert P. Mcbride. In the oil and gas districts of the Southwest no name has a greater significance as an operator, developer, and as a vitalizer of the resources and industries covering several states, than that of Albert P. McBride of Independence. Mr. McBride began his operations as an oil well contractor and producer more than thirty-five years ago. He has supplied enthusiasm, faith and much of the material means necessary to develop the oil and gas resources of Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. ***
"He is a native Kansan, and was born in Miami County February 20, 1862. Doubtless the resourcefulness and energy which have characterized his own life came from his worthy ancestry. He is of Scotch, Irish and English lineage, and his first American forefathers, settled in Old Virginia as early as 1730. ***
"In 1893 Mr. McBride took the leading part in the formation of the Independence Gas Company, which drilled in many strong gas wells and inaugurated the permanent supply of natural gas to the City of Independence. ***
"In 1905 and 1906 A. P. McBride and T. N. Barnsdale of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, acquired several gas wells in Oklahoma, and in Montgomery and Chautauqua counties of Kansas, and organized the Wichita National Gas Company, with Mr. McBride as president and general manager. He held that post until February, 1908 ***.
"Since 1908 Mr. McBride has been operating extensively in Oklahoma, and now has producing wells in the Osage Reservation and in Okmulgee County, and is constantly broadening his operations in that state.... Since January 1, 1916, Mr. McBride has been disposing of many of his interests in Southern Kansas in order to carry on his prospecting for oil in Central Texas....
"It was also due to Mr. McBride's efforts that Winfield, Wichita, Hutchinson and Newton and other western towns of Central Kansas, were supplied with natural gas....
"In politics he is a republican, and in 1904 was seriously considered for nomination for Congress. He attends the Episcopal Church, and is affiliated with Fortitude Lodge No. 107, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons; is a Knight Templar and Scottish Rite and Shriner; a Knight of Pythias; belongs to Camp No. 649, Modern Woodmen of America; Woodmen of the World; and Lodge No. 17, Ancient Order of United Workmen, and holds membership card No. 57 in Council No. 45 of the United Commercial Travelers.
"In January, 1885, early in his business career, Mr. McBride was married at Garnett, Kansas, to Miss L. A. Clampitt. Her father, J. A.

8324 William J. Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, p. 174 (1928), states: "Mr. [George] Snouffer's first wife died in 1821, and he married her sister Elizabeth Thomas [sic: Elizabeth Ranneberger]. They had four children: George W., Michael, Henry and Elizabeth."

Michael is mentioned by Grove, Thomas and Wood: William J. Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, p. 174 (1928); George L. Thomas, ENGLISH THOMAS GENEALOGY, p. 91 (1956); James Wood, THE SNUFFERS, p. 81 (1989).

Michael is not listed by name in the 1840 census; it does list his mother Elizabeth, one male 10-15 (William), one male 15-20 (assuming son George has left the family home, this probably is Michael), one female 10-15 (Sarah Elizabeth), and 7 slaves. 1840 U.S. Census, Buckeystown, Frederick Cnty, MD (M 704, Roll 168, stamped p. 168A).

After the 1840 census, however, Michael disappears. Even though "Michael [and his] (wife Caroline), moved to Licking, Ohio;...." (THE SNUFFERS, p.81), they do not appear in subsequent censuses.
 
Snouffer, Michael (I320)
 
8325 William was a pall bearer for his aunt, according to her funeral announcement, The Frederick [MD] Post, p. A-5 (26 Nov 1986):

" *** Bearers were Steven Kertzel, Keith Kertzel, Ronald Fava, David Hughes, David Casto and William Snouffer. Interment was in the Poplar Springs Cemetery.
"Mrs. Haines was the wife of the late Harvey E. Haines."

William also had been a pall bearer for his uncle, according to his funeral announcement, The Post [Frederick, MD], p. A-5 (28 Dec 1983):
"Funeral services for Mr. Harvey E. Haines, of Mount Airy, who died on Saturday, Dec. 24, were held 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 27....
" *** The bearers were Lester Fleming, Steve Kertzel, David Casto, Bill Snouffer, Webb Utz and Gilbert Driver. Interment was held in the Poplar Springs Cemetery.

8329 Willie was a school teacher, employee at a printing press company, and a restaurant owner.

Mary Thomason-Morris, archivist for the Clarke Cnty Historical Association, Berryville, VA, posted a note with www.Ancestry.com in which she said that Willie M. Snouffer "was a co-owner, later full owner, of Peggy Ann Kitchen.... She also worked at the Blue Ridge Press which was an adjunct to the Clarke Courier...."

In response to a request for further information, she wrote:
"Peggy Ann Kitchen was run by 3 ladies ... who later sold out to Wille and two other ladies. Later Willie owned it completely. PAK was known for its fruitcakes and plum puddings.
"Willie taught school here [in Berryville, Clark Cnty, VA] in the 1920s (don't know how long she taught) and worked at Blue Ridge Press, an adjunct of the local newspaper, the Clarke Courier, in the 1950s. I learned about her from Elizabeth Engle, who taught with her in the 1930s and was a cousin to one of the original owners of PAK....
"Willie married Col. Joel Daniel Griffing (10/23/1900 - 6/16/1966), [marriage] date unk. at this time. She was born 9/3/1901, died 11/2/1982. They are both buried in Green Hill Cemetery in lot 200. I do not know if they had children...." (Email from Mary Thomason-Morris, archives@visuallink.com to Wm. C. Snouffer, 7 Dec 2007.)

The 1930 census lists Joel D.
