  • Notes 
    • The 1910 census report on Stanley and family is difficult to decipher because the ink is so faint. It appears to list Vernie living with her husband Stanley W., and their four children: Elmer, 12; S-? M, 10; and two others whose names are not deciperhable. 1910 U.S. Census, Sharon Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 624, Roll 1183, stamped p. 276).

      Verna died 13 Sep 1918 in Franklin Cnty, OH.

      Opha Moore, HISTORY OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, OHIO, v. 3, p. 1303 (Historical Pub. Co.; 1930), states:
      Stanley W. Snouffer's wife "Verna (Harding)[sic] Snouffer *** was born at Worthington and died in 1917 [sic]. She is buried in Walnut Grove Cemetery, Worthington. To Mr. and Mrs. Snouffer were born four sons: Elmer, who is engaged in the furniture business at Worthington; Stephen M., and Leslie R., who are engaged in the automobile business at Worthington; and Raymond C...."

      "Snouffer's Roots are Deep in Worthington"
      By Candy Brooks
      In this article about Stanley's son Paul, Ms. Brooks wrote:
      "Stanley had four boys from his first marriage [to Verna Hard], which ended with his wife's death while they were living in the big farmhouse that still stands on the rear of Whieldon Lane. He later married Mertie [Near], and together they had Paul, who was born in 1921 in the old Griswold Inn.
      "Son Elmer was a master carpenter and furniture maker who worked in downtown Worthington.
      "Son Steve was a car dealer and gas-station owner, also in downtown Worthington. He later became the Worthington postmaster and worked out his years at Worthington Hardware.
      "Leslie was a tire dealer in Delaware but lived most of his life in Worthington.
      "Ray owned Snouffer Dry Cleaners at High Street and New England Avenue, later moving to one of brother Steve's properties at High and Worthington-Galena Road."
