  • Notes 
    • The 1820 census (recorded on 6 Nov 1820) lists his father "Jacob Snouffer" and his family by age: 2 males under 10 [John and Joseph David ?], 1 at 10-16 [William ?], and 1 at 26-45 [Jacob ?]; 1 female under 10 [Lydia Ann ?], 1 at 16-26 [??] and 1 at 26-45 [Elizabeth Arter]. The family also had one male slave, aged 14-26. 1820 U.S. Census, Emmitsburg, Frederick Cnty, MD (M 33, Roll 43, stamped p. 159).

      Lydia served as a patron or sponsor for her niece Elmira Agnes' baptism in March, 1843 . See, «i»PARISH RECORD BOOK #2«/i», «i»Liber Baptisatorum, 1843-1872,«/i» of St. Joseph's Parish, Emmitsburg, MD, which states:
