  • Notes 
    • The 1900 census lists Charles P Benjamin, 54, born in Pennyslvania, living with his wife of 14 years, Frances A, 38, born Aug 1861 in Iowa, and their son "Charles P," 10, born Dec 1889 in Nebraska, together with some lodgers. Charles was employed in the real estate profession. 1900 U.S. Census, Cedar Rapids, Linn Cnty, IA (T 623, Roll 444, stamped p. 12). Regrettably the year of Charles' birth has been written over and is ambiguous.

      His wife's name is recorded in L. A. Brewer & B. L. Wick, HISTORY OF LINN COUNTY, p. 695 (1911), as follows:
      "*** Captain Snouffer was married to Miss Anna White, a native of Maryland, and they became the parents of fifteen children, of whom four survive the father, namely: ... Mrs. Frances A. Benjamin...."
