  • Notes 
    • William J. Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, p. 174 (1928), states: "Mr. [George] Snouffer's first wife died in 1821, and he married her sister Elizabeth Thomas [sic: Elizabeth Ranneberger]. They had four children: George W., Michael, Henry and Elizabeth."

      Michael is mentioned by Grove, Thomas and Wood: William J. Grove, HISTORY OF CARROLLTON MANOR, p. 174 (1928); George L. Thomas, ENGLISH THOMAS GENEALOGY, p. 91 (1956); James Wood, THE SNUFFERS, p. 81 (1989).

      Michael is not listed by name in the 1840 census; it does list his mother Elizabeth, one male 10-15 (William), one male 15-20 (assuming son George has left the family home, this probably is Michael), one female 10-15 (Sarah Elizabeth), and 7 slaves. 1840 U.S. Census, Buckeystown, Frederick Cnty, MD (M 704, Roll 168, stamped p. 168A).

      After the 1840 census, however, Michael disappears. Even though "Michael [and his] (wife Caroline), moved to Licking, Ohio;...." (THE SNUFFERS, p.81), they do not appear in subsequent censuses.
