  • Notes 
    • The 1850 census lists her parents "Geo Snoffer," 39, and Mary, 36, and the following children: Ellen, 15; Somerset, 13; Catherine, 9; Rebecca, 7; George, 5; Martha, 3; Mary S, 1 month. The oldest child, Ellen, was born in MD; all the rest, in Ohio. 1850 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 432, Roll 680, stamped p. 232). [While the census-taker's handwriting clearly reads "Snoffer," the indexer for Ancestry.com strangely lists the surname as "Swoffer."]
    • In 1860 the census shows her father "Snoffer, George," a 53 year old farmer born in Maryland, living with his wife "Mary A," 45, and children: "Sommersett," 22; "Catharine," 19; Rebecca, 17; George, 15; Martha, 12; Mary, 9; Joseph, 6; and "Willie," 3. 1860 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 653, Roll 962, stamped p. 294).

      The 1870 census shows Mary as an 18-yr old girl, born in Ohio, "Attending School," and living with her parents and 3 siblings, Martha, Joseph, and "Willie." 1870 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 593, Roll 1200, stamped p. 682).

      Mary's obelisk tombstone in the Dublin, OH, Cemetery, although badly worn by 2004, reads: "Mary E | dau of | G & M A Snouffer | Died | Jun 22, 1877 | Aged | 26 yrs 11 mo & 16 dys."
