  • Notes 
    • The 1880 census lists Oliver's father Joseph "Snaffer" as a 26 yr old farmer, living with his wife "Ella", 22 and sons "W.Samuel [sic: Stanley W.]", 2, and Oliver, 7/12. 1880 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 9, Roll 1015, stamped p. 171).

      The 1900 census shows Oliver C, as a 20-yr old farm laborer, born in October 1879 in Ohio, living with his parents and 8 siblings. 1900 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 623, Roll 1270, stamped pp. 184-185).

      The 1910 census lists "Snoffer, Oliver C" as a 30-yr old farm laborer, living with his wife of 6 years, Mabel A, 25, and their two children, Kenneth C, 3, and Arnold A, 2. 1910 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 624, Roll 1183, stamped p. 208).

      It is assumed that Oliver C. was the husband of Mabel A. from the Walnut Grove Cemetery records which report that Oliver C. owned both plots and they were buried side by side. Paula Snouffer Mercer & John Snouffer confirm that Mabel Alice was his wife. Paula reports that Oliver was a farmer, horse trainer, and worked for a railroad.
