  • Notes 
    • The 1910 census report on Elmer Stanley's family is difficult to decipher because the ink is so faint. It appears to list Elmer, 12, and his parents and siblings. 1910 U.S. Census, Sharon twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 624, Roll 1183, stamped p. 276).

      Opha Moore, HISTORY OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, OHIO, v. 3, pp. 1303-04 (Historical Pub. Co., 1930), states:
      "Stanley W. Snouffer [Elmer's father] ... was a farmer and also followed the carpenter's trade. He sold his farm near Worthington in 1919 and has since engaged in the building business in Columbus. *** [His oldest son was] Elmer, who is engaged in the furniture business at Worthington...."

      The 1930 census lists Elmer S as a 31 year old man, born in Ohio, living with his wife Helen W, 27, and son Edward S, almost 2. Elmer was the "proprieter" of a "retail furniture" business. 1930 U.S. Census, Worthington, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 626, Roll 1802, ED 214, p. 3A).
    • Worthington [OH] News (10 Jul 2014):
      "Snouffer's Roots are Deep in Worthington"
      By Candy Brooks
      In this article about his half-brother Paul, and his father Stanley, 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."
