  • 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."]
    • In 1860 the census shows her father "Snoffer, George," a 53 year old farmer born in Maryland, living with his wife "Mary A," 45, and children: "Sommersett," 22; "Catharine," 19; Rebecca, 17; George, 15; Martha, 12; Mary, 9; Joseph, 6; and "Willie," 3. 1860 U.S. Census, Perry Twsp, Franklin Cnty, OH (M 653, Roll 962, stamped p. 294).

      In 1880 the census shows her husband John A. Ruble, 46, an engineer, born in Virginia, living with "Kate," 39, and their three sons: Ellis, 13; "Fredk C," 11; and Charles, 7. 1880 U.S. Census, Urbana, Champaign Cnty, OH (T 9, Roll 998, stamped pp. 416C & D).

      The 1900 census lists Catherine Ruble, a 59-yr old widow born in Ohio in Sept, 1840, a mother of 4 children, living with the 2 children who were still alive: Ellis, 33, born Feb 1867 in Ohio; and Charles A, 27, born Oct 1872 in Ohio. 1900 U.S. Census, Allen Twsp, Darke Cnty, OH (T 623, Roll 1261, stamped p. 41). (By implication, therefore, son Frederick was dead, and a baby child, name unknown, also was deceased.)

      Catherine is not listed in the 1910 census.
