  • Notes 
    • The 1930 census lists "Lesley R" as a 27 year old automobile salesman, born in Ohio, living with his wife Bernice, 25, and daughter Phyllis A, almost 2. Living next door is the family of his second cousin, Earl E. Snouffer. 1930 U.S. Census, Worthington, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 626, Roll 1802, ED 214, p. 8A).

      Opha Moore, HISTORY OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, OHIO, v. 3, pp. 1303-04 (Historical Pub. Co., 1930), states:
      "Stanley W. Snouffer [Leslie's father] ... was a farmer and also followed the carpenter's trade. *** [Two of his sons were] Stephen M., and Leslie R., who are engaged in the automobile business at Worthington [as partners with their brother Raymond, who was] agent for the DeSoto and Chevrolet automobiles. They are also exclusive dealers at Worthington for Firestone tires and tubes and have an up to date service station and repair shop."

      The Walnut Grove Cemetery obituary says: "Survived by wife Bernice; daughter Phyllis & son-in-law The Ven. Morris Hollenbaugh, Arch Deacon Episcopal Diocese of Southern Ohio, Fairfield, Oh.; grandchildren Todd Hollenbaugh, Oxford, Oh., Leslie Ross, Glen Ridge, N.J.; great-grandchildren Alexandria & Paul Ross; brothers Elmer, Powell, Oh., Steve, Ray & Paul, of Worthington, Ohio."

      "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."
