      "Snouffer's Roots are Deep in Worthington"
      By Candy Brooks
      In this article about Stanley's son Paul, Ms. Brooks wrote:
      "Stanley had four boys from his first marriage [to Verna Hard], which ended with his wife's death while they were living in the big farmhouse that still stands on the rear of Whieldon Lane. He later married Mertie [Near], and together they had Paul, who was born in 1921 in the old Griswold Inn.
      "Son Elmer was a master carpenter and furniture maker who worked in downtown Worthington.
      "Son Steve was a car dealer and gas-station owner, also in downtown Worthington. He later became the Worthington postmaster and worked out his years at Worthington Hardware.
      "Leslie was a tire dealer in Delaware but lived most of his life in Worthington.
      "Ray owned Snouffer Dry Cleaners at High Street and New England Avenue, later moving to one of brother Steve's properties at High and Worthington-Galena Road."
