    • The 1900 census shows "Etta B" Snouffer, 29 yrs old, born April 1871 in Ohio, working as a "housekeeper" and living with her husband of 1 year, Marion C Snouffer. 1900 U.S. Census, Perry twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 623, Roll 1270, stamped p. 182).

      In 1920 the census recorded Etta B, 49, living with her husband Marion, 44, and two children: Ralph E, 10 and Vergie I, 8. Marion was a "steam engineer." 1920 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 625, Roll 1380, stamped p. 42).

      The 1930 census lists Marion as a 55 year old man, born in Ohio, living with his family in Perry, Franklin Cnty, OH. Marion's occupation was as a janitor for public schools. [The indexer list misread his age 65; the original page shows 55]. The family consists of Etta, 59; Ralph, 21, who was employed as a golf club greens keeper; and Virginia, 18. 1930 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 626, Roll 1802, ED 207, p. 14A)
    • Obituary, The Worthington [OH] News, p. 1 (25 Sep 1930):
      "Etta Davis Snouffer, daughter of Marion and Sarah Davis, was born near Dublin, April 22, 1871 [sic], and passed away at her home in Linworth September 22, 1930, at the age of 59 years, 6 months. On March 5, 1899 she was united in marriage to Marion Snouffer. To this union was born one son Ralph, and one daughter, Virgie, both at home, whom with their father are left to mourn the loss of their beloved wife and mother. She also leaves two brothers, Wilbur Davis of Marble Cliff, and Elmer Davis of Marion Ohio and one sister, Mrs. Elma Bishop of Hyatts along with many other relatives and friends. One brother, Marion Davis, preceded her in death 3 years ago. She united with the Linworth M.E. Church in 1922 and has been a wonderful worker for her Maker's cause. She was a faithful and industrious wife and a kind and indulgent mother. She has been a patient sufferer, in which the last few weeks of her life she was confined to her bed. She bore her sufferings without a complaint and finally gave her life to her God who gave it."
