      "Mary Magdelena Baumgartner [sic] Snouffer came to Worthington in the 1830s.
      "In her wagon were eight children and no husband or father. John Snouffer had died in their home state of Maryland.
      "Their four sons -- David, Michael, John and George -- would have a major role in the settlement of West Worthington, Linworth and Dublin.
      "George had a son, Joseph W., who married Julietta Garner. They bought farmland on the west side of the railroad tracks where, today, Brookside Estates lies.
      "The road that ran past the Snouffer farm was soon named Snouffer Road...."
