In 1864 he married Mrs. Susan Tunstall, widow of Captain E. B. Tunstall, who fell at the battle of Elk Horn, in Arkansas, under General Price. By this union there are now living two daughters, Sallie and Esie. Mrs. Snuffer died in Arkansas in 1876.
      "Mr. Owen Snuffer, to whom we are indebted for this sketch, has written several articles for the press, and among these contributions are "The Early Settlers of the County" and "The Sacking and Burning of Osceola by Jim Lane." "The Battle of Lone Jack," written by him, is acknowledged to be a fair and impartial history. He also assisted A. C. Appler in writing the only true life ever written of the Younger Brothers." The History of Henry and St. Clair Counties, Missouri, p 1149 (St. Joseph, MO; National Historical Co.: 1883).

      Between 1 Jan 1862 and 7 May 1865, Owen served as a Senior 2d Lt. in the 16th Regiment, Missouri Infantry, Confederate Army, during the Civil War.
