  • Notes 
    • "By 1850, William Snuffer was in the mercantile business on Long Branch and Daniels Run, just inside the Frankline [County] line. Elliot and Nye's Virginia Directory of 1852 indicates that William was a partner of Peter Guerrant, a well-to-do Floyd landowner. Indeed, the Floyd census of 1850 reveals that the William Snuffer family was living in the Guerrant household. A justice of the peace, when William signed as a witness to the appraisal of his father's estate 19 March 1851, he affixed "esquire" after his name, as minor officials were wont to do in those days.
      «tab»"The 1850 census taker listed ... William Snuffer, 30, a merchant, [who] had real estate worth $1,300. Julia, William's wife, was 25, and they had two daughters, Sarah, 4, and Susan, 1. All were born in Floyd...." («i»THE SNUFFERS«/i», p. 111)
