  • Notes 
    • Jim Wood, in THE SNUFFERS, p. 55, lists Rebecca as the last child, but lists Christianna as the mother.

      Kirk Lester seems to think that Rebecca was the daughter of a mother other than Christianna Walls, but he gives her birth year as 1846, which is in between all the other children, so he must be mistaken about the mother.

    • Excerpts from "George Snuffer, III," a profile written by Darry Snuffer (Aug 2012) and reproduced in the Notes for George Thomas Snuffer, III (1821-1908):

      "George Snuffer, III, nicknamed "Dickey," was born May 23, 1821, the youngest child of George Snuffer, Jr., and Ailsey Huff Snuffer. ***
      "George "Dickey" grew up and fell in love with Christina A. Walls, a woman 8 years his senior. Born in 1813, she was the daughter of J. & R. Walls. The Walls family had settled in present-day Wyoming County around 1830.
      "Their marriage date is uncertain, but their first child was born in 1844, in Fayette County, so they were probably married around 1842. The following children were born to their marriage:
      "1. Emiline [Evaline], born 1844, married George P. Lemon on December 21, 1870. She died July 11, 1881.
      "2. Rebecca, born 1847, married Joshua M. Calloway on September 3, 1868. Her date of death is unknown.
      "3. Cyrus, born June 13, 1850, married Nancy J. Burgess on January 30, 1873. He married his second wife, Virginia Smith, on June 15, 1886. He died in 1905.
      "4. Russell, born June 17, 1854, married Paulina A. Trump on July 15, 1878. He died December 20, 1925.
      "5. Lewis, born March 17, 1857, married [his 3d cousin] Lucinda E. Snuffer on July 5, 1877. He died on April 14, 1945. *** "
