  • Notes 
    • Mary's birth date is calculated from her tombstone inscription; the subtraction yields the date 24 Mar 1830.

      The 1850 census reported that Mary's husband-to-be, Joseph Snouffer, 33, was living with his parents Jacob and Elizabeth, and with his sister Mary, 22, and brother William, 19. It further stated that Joseph was a carpenter. 1850 U.S. Census, Emmitsburg, Frederick Cnty, MD (M 432, Roll 292, stamped p. 167); M.F. Hitselberger & J.P. Dern, BRIDGE IN TIME, THE COMPLETE 1850 CENSUS OF FREDERICK COUNTY, MARYLAND, p. 167 (Monocacy Book Co., Redwood City, CA; 1978).

      Mary E. and Joseph must have married between 12 July 1850, when the census was taken, and 21 Mar 1852, when their daughter Josephine was born.

      According to the Frederick, MD Examiner, of 10 Aug 1853, Mary died 28 July 1853 from cholera. See Mary F. Hitselberger, "Abstracts from the Examiner, Frederick Md., 6 July to 28 December 1853," vol. 19, Western Maryland Genealogy, p. 201 (Oct. 2003), which reads: "Snouffer, Mary E., wife Joseph Snouffer, in 24y, d. in Emmittsburg [sic], of Cholera, 28th July."

      Robert Hess reported that he visited the Emmitsburg Catholic Cemetery in Oct. 1966 and observed that Mary's tombstone showed a death date of 28 July 1853 at "age 23-4-4."
