  • Notes 
    • "The third known child of George Snauffer Sr. was Margaret....
      "Margaret Snuffer, 15 March 1789-12 Dec. 1854, was the wife of Philip Huff, [who was] born about 1785--died 1823.... [S]he married [Philip] the son of Daniel Huff whose sister, Ailsey, married her [Margaret's] brother, George Snuffer [sic] Jr." THE SNUFFERS, p.57.
    • There is a document from the old Claiborne Cnty, TN, court records, that now is in the Tenn. State Library, which gives her father George Snauffer a power of attorney for 5 of his children to seek a share of their grandfather [David] Jarrett's estate. "The document *** names George's children as John, David, George, Nancy and Mary Snauffer. *** Margaret, the daughter who married Philip Huff and died in Indiana, was only 13 years old at the time [the] others signed the document and was not of legal age." (THE SNUFFERS, Addendum to Ch.5, p. 58a.)
