  • Notes 
    • According to the 1993 obituary of his sister Cathy Snouffer Frey, Charles was then living in Titusville, Fla. The 1973 obituary of his sister Faye lists his name as "Charles A."
    • With respect to Snouffer Lake, as the years went by the lake became environmentally unsafe. The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources brought action in 1993 to close and drain the lake. The owners (Kay Snouffer Emery, Rita Snouffer Dickson, A. Charles Snouffer, Jr., and Sherry Snouffer Duncan) were held in contempt of court in 1999 for failing to comply with a court order to prepare a plan to breach and drain the lake. In June, 2000, the court ordered DENR to do the work, and the owners were required to reimburse the agency for the cost -- $50,000 to $120,000. The drainage work occurred in January, 2001.

      Few Snouffers in 'Snouffer Town'
      By Jim Schlosser, Staff Writer

      GREENSBORO -- When students gathered to board school buses at old Jesse Wharton School on Pisgah Church Road, a driver would holler "Snouffer Town Bus now loading."

      Nearly all the children who jumped aboard were named Snouffer. ***

      The Snouffer Town's patriarch was George Snouffer (pronounced "snoffer"), who died in 1987 at 94. He came from Baltimore early in the 20th century and hobbled through life on a stiff leg that the family says resulted either from an accident at Cone Mills or from childhood polio.

      Snouffer peddled goods from his car and bought acreage along both sides of the North Church Street extension. He also bought considerable property in Titusville, Fla. Snouffers still occupy the Florida land. ***
