  • Notes 
    • The 1850 census lists her parents "Geo Snoffer," 39, and Mary, 36, and the following children: Ellen, 15; Somerset, 13; Catherine, 9; Rebecca, 7; George, 5; Martha, 3; Mary S, 1 month. The oldest child, Ellen, was born in MD; all the rest, in Ohio. 1850 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 432, Roll 680, stamped p. 232). [While the census-taker's handwriting clearly reads "Snoffer," the indexer for Ancestry.com strangely lists the surname as "Swoffer."]
    • The 1900 U.S. census lists her husband William H. Jewett, 68, born Oct 1831 in Ohio, living with Lucy E, 65, born Dec. 1834 in Maryland, together with their daughter Kate E, 28, born Nov 1871 in Ohio; and daughter Sarah Downing, 35, born Aug 1864 in Ohio and her children: daughter Cara Downing, 15, born Dec 1884 in Nebraska, and her son Fred Downing, 20, born Apr 1880 in Ohio. William's occupation is as a physician; daughter Kate was a school teacher; and grandson Fred Downing was a farm laborer. 1900 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 623, Roll 1270, stamped p. 184).

      In 1910 the census shows Lucy E, 75, living with her husband William 78, daughter Kate E, 38, and widowed daughter Mary E. Reed [or Rud], 55. The census indicated that, during their 56 years of marriage, Lucy had given birth to 10 children, 7 of whom were still living. 1910 U.S. Census, Sharon Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (T 624, Roll 1183, stamped p. 274B).

      Frederic Clarke Jewett, History and Genealogy of the Jewetts of America, p. 770 (New York, The Grafton Press: 1908), states:
      "Dr. William Henry Jewett ... was born in Franklin Co., Ohio, Oct. 2, 1831. He married there Feb. 5, 1854, Lucy Ellen Snouffer, daughter of George and Mary Ann (Wirtz) Snouffer.*** "

      In writing about her son George Franklin Jewett, Fred Lockley, History of the Columbia River Valley, From The Dalles to the Sea, vol. 2, p. 526 (S. J. Clarke Publishing Co., Chicago, IL: 1928), commented that Dr. William Henry Jewett was born in Franklin County, Ohio, and that Lucy E. Schnauffer [sic] was born in Virginia. He wrote that William H. Jewett "was a graduate of the Cincinnati Medical College and was a successful practitioner in central Ohio during all of his active years, his death occurring in Columbus, that state, in 1915. His wife died in 1917. They became the parents of ten children, namely: Mary Eliza, deceased; George F.; Laura E., deceased; Flora E. and Sarah A., who live in Indiana; Charles E., who is a practicing physician in Franklin county, Ohio; Kate E., who was a college graduate and a school teacher and is now deceased; Dimpie and Leslie, who are deceased; and Fred, who lives in Columbus, Ohio. All of these children received good educations."
