    • The 1900 census lists Norma's parents, "Jas M Young," 29, born Jan 1871 in WV, and "Nellie" Young, 26, born May 1874 in Ohio, living with their two West Virginia born daughters, Jessie, 5, born Oct 1894; and Norma, 3, born Feb 1897. Her father James was a "Laundryman." 1900 U.S. Census, Charleston, Kanawha Cnty, WV (T 623, Roll 1762, stamped p. 281).

      The 1930 census shows Norma, 32, living with her husband "Ben O Snuffer," 43; a niece, "Trixy" Daniel, 21; and Norma's widowed mother, Nell F Young, 54. There were also at least 6 lodgers dwelling in the building. Ben was born in WV and worked as a civil engineer. Norma was born in WV and was a stenographer in a law office. Trixy was born in WV and unemployed. Norma was born in Ohio and also was employed as a law office stenographer. 1930 U.S. Census, Charleston, Kanawha Cnty, WV (T 626, Roll 2537, stamped p. 154).

      Although the 1930 census gives her name as "Norma," her husband's death certificate clearly states that her name was "Nora." See: http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.aspx?Id=5549926&Type=Death/ However, another WV record gives her name as "Norma Edna." See: http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_dcdetail.aspx?Id=1067740
