  • Notes 
    • Jim Wood (THE SNUFFERS, pp. 55-56) states that the 6th known child of George and Aisley (Huff) Snuffer, Jr., was: "Lucinda Snuffer, born 14 April 1816, wed Ransom Walls, born 18 April 1809. Married 29 July 1835, they moved to Ohio. Children: Madison, C.K., Sarah E., James Owen, Russell B., George W., Providence M., Ransom Trumbo, Lucinda, Dave W."

      Indeed, those facts are supported by the 1860 federal census. It shows that Ransom Walls, 50, born in Virginia, was living with his wife Lucinda, 43, also born in VA, and 9 children: "Madison G," 23; "Cyrus C," 20; Sarah E, 18; James O, 17; "Russel B," 15; George W, 12; Providence, 8; Ransom T, 6; and Lucinda A, 4. 1860 U.S. Census, Windsor Twsp, Lawrence Cnty, OH (M 653, Roll 997, stamped p. 154B).

      The 1870 census records that Lucinda, 55, was living with her husband Ransom Walls, 60, and 4 sons: Madison, 34; Providence, 19; "Ranson," 16; and David, 9. The census states that Ransom, Lucinda and Madison were all born in [what is now] West Virginia; and that their sons "Ranson" and David were born in Ohio. Her husband was a farmer. Each of her sons Madison, Providence and "Ranson" "works on the farm." The youngest son, David, was employed "doing chores." 1870 U.S. Census, Windsor Twsp, Lawrence Cnty, OH (M 593, Roll 1231, stamped pp. 599B-600).

      With the passage of time this couple's surname devolved and morphed from Walls to Wall. By the time of their deaths, the surname was fairly consistently spelled without an ending "s." Therefore I have chosen to list and index their surnames as Wall.
