      "Johnny Morris Wheeler Snouffer was my uncle. He was the son of R Opal McGuire Snouffer and Ollie Marvin Wheeler. He was adopted by my grandfather Leslie William Snouffer, Opal's second husband. Johnny was married to Iris Snouffer (maiden name unknown) and they lived in California.
      "Johnny was born April 4, 1945 in Columbus, Ohio and died January 21, 2003. The SSI number is the same one that I have in my records. Now the marrage to Delores McClain is uncomfirmed. I have spoken to family members and thay have comfirmed that he was indeed married before he married Iris but they were unable to come up with any names. I was told the marriage did not last long and there were no children." (Email from grouchinme@yahoo.com to Wm.C. Snouffer, 29 Mar 2006)
