  • Notes 
    • According to her husband's World War I draft registration, dated 12 Sep 1918, Benjamin listed his occupation as a "Brakeman" for the "B[altimore] & O[hio] R.R. Co." Further, it listed his wife as "Celia Katherine Snouffer."

      The 1920 census records Benjamin, 37, living with his wife Cecelia C, 27, and children Robert, 7, Dorothy, 4, and Mildred, 1 & 1/2, together with a niece Margaret Jameson, 16. 1920 U.S. Census, 12th Ward, Baltimore, Baltimore Cnty, MD (T 625, Roll 658, stamped p. 156).

      The 1930 census lists Benjamin "Snoffer" as a 48 year old man living with his wife "Cecil" [it's quite hard to read], 38, and children Robert, 17 and Dorothy, 14. 1930 U.S. Census, 12th Ward, Baltimore, Baltimore County, MD (T 626, Roll 856, stamped p. 70).

      According to Barbara Hacker Allshouse, who personally examined the cemetery records, Cecelia is buried in Lot 21, Section O, Grave #12.
