  • Notes 
    • The 1900 Maryland census lists his parents' family. It shows his father Oscar as head of the family, living with his mother and children Nelson and Mildred, renting a house on North Fulton Ave. The census states that Nelson was born in Jan 1898. 1900 U.S.Census, Baltimore City, Baltimore Cnty, MD (17th Ward, ED 291, p. 7).
    • His WW I draft registration card (filed 13 Sep 1918) gives his name as Nelson Merick Snouffer, 20, born 22 Jan 1898. It states that he was a "plumber apprentice" for A.C. Mylander Bros in the "City" [Baltimore]. It further provides that his mother, Ada R. "Snouffler" is his "nearest relative." He was described as tall, with medium build, gray eyes, dark hair, and with no physically infirmaties.
    • The 1930 census reports that Nelson "Snoffer," 32, was living with his wife "Lucille," 30, in Baltimore; that they were married when Nelson was 21, and Lucille was 19; that they owned their own home which had a value of $8,800, that Nelson was a pipe fitter, and that their daughter Evelyn, 5 & 9/12ths years, lived with them, as well as three roomers. (There is no mention of daughter Ruth.) 1930 U.S. Census, 28th Ward, Baltimore, Baltimore Cnty, MD (T 626, Roll 871, stamped p. 253).
