  • Notes 
    • The 1910 census lists "Chrystal M" Snouffer, born in Oklahoma, the 4-yr old daughter of Archibald and Lydia Snouffer, living with her parents and 5 siblings. 1910 U.S. Census, Dirigo Twsp, Grant Cnty, OK (T 624, Roll 1253, stamped p. 180).

      The 1920 census shows "Bluebell," a 14 year old daughter of Archibald and Lydia Snouffer, living at home with her sister Cora, 31, her brother Harry, 19, and his wife Lela, also 19. 1920 U.S. Census, Dirigo Twsp, Grant Cnty, OK (T 625, Roll 1460, stamped p. 171)(the Ancestry.com indexer has her name as "Bluchell").

      The 1930 census lists "Bluebelle" Snouffer, 24, a stenographer in a "gas office," living with her parents "Arthur T," 62, and Lela C, 62. 1930 U.S. Census, Blackwell, Kay Cnty, OK (T 626, Roll 1908, ED 2, p. 3A)(she is indexed as "Bluabelle").

      In 1937 BlueBell applied for a Social Security number. Her application (dated 9 Sep 1937; and assigning SSN # 447-07-7258) stated that her name as "BlueBell Chrystole Mae Snouffer," that she was born 23 Oct 1905 in Deer Creek, OK, that her parents were "A. T. Snouffer" and "Lydia Snouffer," that she was not then employed, and that she was living in Blackwell, OK. [The handwriting difference between the signature and the printing on the form is remarkable; enough so that one could conclude that the hand printed information was filled in by a clerk and the form signed by BlueBell.)

      According to the Social Security Death Index, "Blue" Griffin (SSN 447-07-7258; issued in Oklahoma) was b. 23 Oct 1905 and d. Sep 1971 in Blackwell, Kay Cnty, OK.
