  • Notes 
    • The 1900 Maryland census lists the Snouffer family. It shows "A. T.", 16 yrs old, living with his parents and siblings. The census states that he was born April, 1884 [sic], in Maryland and that he was "at school." 1900 U.S. Census, Buckeystown Dist, Frederick Cnty, MD (T 623, Roll 623, stamped p. 4).

      In 1910 the census shows "A T" Snouffer, 27, single, living in a boarding house in Washington, D.C. He was employed as a life insurance agent. 1910 U.S. Census, Washington, D.C. (T 624, Roll 151, stamped p. 41B).

      On 31 Oct 1910, in Richmond, VA, Archie Snouffer married Eugenie Ferro. Apparently she advised the licensing authorities that she had been born in 1881. Her parents were listed as Edward and Alice E. Ferro. Archie's birth year was given as 1883; his parents were George and Mittie Snouffer. See, "Virginia Marriages, 1785-1940," Batch Number: I07894-5, LDS Film 2048499, on-line database at http://pilot.familysearch.org (accessed Apr 2011). [G. L. Thomas, English Thomas Genealogy, pp. 94-95 (G.L. Thomas, Adamstown, MD: 1956), states that Archie T. Snouffer married "Eugenia Allnutt." That assertion appears to be incorrect.]

      The 1920 census shows "Archie T," 35, born in Maryland and employed as an insurance co. "collector," living with his wife Eugenie, 34, born in Virginia, and their two Washington, D.C.-born daughters: Elizabeth A, 8; and Dorothy E, 7. Also in the household were Eugenie's widowed mother Alice E, 69, and widowed sister Annetta Howard, 36. 1920 U.S. Census, Washington, D.C. (T 625, Roll 208, stamped p. 230).

      The 1924 BOYD'S DIRECTORY, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, p. 1328 (R.L. Polk & Co. 1924), lists "Arth" Snouffer as an agent with the Prudential Ins. Co., living at 123 Quincy Pl, NE.

      Wm. J. Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, p. 175 (1928), reports that "A.T." was "in Washington" (presumably D.C.).

      The 1930 BOYD'S DIRECTORY, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, p. 1430 (R.L. Polk & Co. 1930), lists "Archie T" Snouffer as an agent with the Prudential Ins. Co., living with his wife "Eugenie" at 123 Quincy Pl, NE.

      In 1930 the census records "Archie Snouffer" as 45 years old, born in Maryland, living with his wife "Eugenia" [sic], 44, and daughters. Also living with them was Eugenie's widowed mother Alice Ferro, 79. 1930 U.S. Census, Washington, D.C. (T 626, Roll 293, ED 47, p. 5A; stamped p. 188).

      Archie and his wife Eugenie are buried under a single headstone in Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Frederick, MD, in sec. Q, lot 31, grave # 1.
