  • Notes 
    • The 1930 census shows her parents Paul A Snouffer, 38, living with his wife "Nannie A," 38, and their 2 children: "C. Reginald," 17, born in Maryland, a farmer laborer; and Margaret E, 7, born in Washington, D.C. Her father was an insurance agent. 1930 U.S. Census, Washington, D.C. (T 626, Roll 301, stamped p. 25B).

      The 1942 BOYD'S DIRECTORY, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, p. 1522 (R.L. Polk & Co: 1942), lists "Snouffer Margt E student" living with her parents at 4602 Quarles NE.

      The Frederick [MD] Post, p. 4 (13 Jul 1955) reported:
      "County Resident Guest at 80th Birthday Party
      "I. Myurtlin Dutrow [sic], Gas House pike, who observed his 80th birthday yesterday, on Sunday was entertained by his family at a buffet dinner at his home. ***
      "Other relatives there were ... Mrs. Nan Snouffer, Reginald Snouffer, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Vial, Sandy, Craig and Nan Vial...."

      Her husband's obituary in The Washington [D.C.] Post, p. B7 (2 Jun 2007) provides:
      "Peter F. Vial, 84 ... died ... May 14 at his Silver Spring home.
      " *** Survivors include his wife of 60 years, Peggy Vial of Silver Spring; four children, Peter M. Vial of Seattle, C. Craig Vial of Hickory Tavern, S.C., Dean H. Vial of Greensboro, N.C., and Nan Beagle of Silver Spring; 10 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren."

    • Death Notice, The Washington [D.C.] Post (19 Feb 2017):
      "Margaret Vial (age 94); 'Peggy'
      "Passed away peacefully on February 11, 2017. She was predeceased by her husband, Pete. She is survived by her four children, Peter M. Vial (Mary) of Seattle, WA, Craig Vial (Tonda) of Hickory Tavern, SC, Nan Beagle (Joe) of Silver Spring, MD and Dean Vial (Penny) of Greensboro, NC. She was adored by them and by her 10 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Rarely is life lived with such love, grace and strength as to change those it touches, family and friends alike. Such was her life. So with gratitude for the great blessing we received, we say goodbye, well done and thanks. No services planned."
