  • Notes 
    • The 1930 census shows Corinne, 15, living at home with her parents William and Florence, together with siblings Robert, 21, Russell, 18, and Donald, 14. 1930 U.S. Census, Kendall Twsp, Kendall Cnty, IL (T 626, Roll 522, stamped p. 132B).

      In 1936 Corinne traveled to Duluth, Minnesota to act as a bridesmaid for her brother Robert's bride Betty Nuss. A newspaper account states, in part:
      "Nuptial vows were exchanged by Miss Beatrice Elizabeth Nuss, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George K. Nuss, and Robert W. Campbell of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Campbell of Aurora Illinois at an 8:30 o'clock ceremony saturday evening [25 Apr 1936] at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. ***
      "Miss Corine [sic] Campbell of Cedar Rapids, sister of the bridegroom, who was the maid of honor, and Miss Margaret Sundberg and Miss Dorothy Gray, both of Cedar Rapids, who were the bridesmaids, wore gowns made identically of lace. They were fashioned with long fitted skirts and were accompanied by matching jackets which buttoned down the back. Miss Campbell wore corn yellow, Miss Sandberg, peach and Miss Dorothy Gray, aquamarine. They wore wreaths of tiny French flowers in their hair and matching footwear. The bride and her attendants all are members of the Delta Delta Delta sorority." See: awtc.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=*v22t0521&id=I002 (accessed Jul 2007).

      In Nov. 1952 the Urbana [IL] Courier contained a story that Col. & Mrs. Snouffer had taken up residence in Urbana.
