  • Notes 
    • Samuel is listed in the 1860 Maryland census as a 3-yr old boy, born in Maryland, living with his parents and siblings in the home of farmer John Gingrich and his wife Susan. 1860 U.S. Census, 4th Dist, Reisterstown P.O, Baltimore Cnty, MD (M 653, Roll 468, stamped p. 216).

      The 1870 Iowa census reports that Samuel Snouffer, aged 13 and born in Maryland, was in the home of JJ & Anna Snouffer, when the census reporter arrived at that home on 8 June 1870 to compile his information. 1870 U.S. Census, 1st Ward, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (M 593, Roll 405, stamped p. 127). Samuel apparently was at his uncle's home on that day. But he also was at his own home when the census-taker arrived there on 28 June 1870. He is listed as a 12-yr old boy, born in Maryland, living with his parents and siblings. 1870 U.S. Census, 4th Ward, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (M 593, Roll 405, stamped p. 53). It would appear that Samuel was counted twice!

      The 1880 census records Samuel living at home with his parents and siblings; it lists him as a 22-yr old "printer." 1880 U.S. Census, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (T 9, Roll 351, stamped p. 98) [LDS Film 1254351].

      The 1877-78 Cedar Rapids City Directory lists "S.S.Snouffer" as boarding at 219 S. Washington, and gives his occupation as a printer. The 1880-81 directory lists him as foreman of the press room at the Cedar Rapids Republican. The 1890-91 directory has him, still as a printer, at the Times, but by 1893 he was back with the Republican, and still there according to the 1900 directory.

      The 1920 census lists "Sam S." as a 61-yr old printer for a "wholesale drug house," living with his wife "Jennie E," 55, and daughter Mary C., 19, a music teacher. 1920 U.S. Census, 17th Precinct, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (T 625, Roll 500, stamped p. 191).

      The 1930 census records Samuel S. Snouffer as a 72 year printer living with his wife Jennie, 65, and daughter Mary C, 29. They lived next door to his brother Joshua J and his wife Ann E. 1930 U.S. Census, Cedar Rapids, 19th Prct, Linn Cnty, IA (T 626, Roll 665, ED 64, p. 6B).
