  • Notes 
    • The 1930 census lists John M. Snouffer, 56, living with his second wife "Joslyn K," 39, and her daughter Marjorie J. Steele, 14. 1930 U.S. Census, Dublin, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 626, Roll 1802, stamped p. 208).

      According to the Ohio Supreme Court, Joslyn was John Snouffer's second wife. She was named as the executrix of his will. When he died on 1 July 1935, she stopped making alimony payments to his first wife, Clara. Ultimately the court agreed that alimony payments were a personal obligation that terminated upon death, so that Joslyn's refusal to make payments to Clara were upheld. See, Snouffer v. Snouffer, vol. 132, Ohio Reports, p. 617; vol. 9, NorthEastern Reports 2d, p. 621 (1937).
    • Joslyn had a brother, Stanley D. Kesler; their parents were Lee and Belle Yocky Kesler. He died in July 1954. "Joslyn Snouffer of Columbus" is named as a survivor in his obituary. The Dover [OH] Daily Reporter, p. 4 (16 Jul 1954).
