Leslie R. Snouffer (b. 1901, d. 1986) lived in Delaware, Ohio. Paul Snouffer (b. 1921, d. 2014) was a local architect with the Lawrence and Snouffer Architecture Firm. Stanley W. Snouffer (b. 1877, d. 1970), a carpenter by trade, lived in the Worthington area all his life. Raymond (Ray) C. Snouffer (b. 1905, d. 2001) owned and operated Snouffer Dry Cleaners. Stephen (Steve) M. Snouffer (b. 1899, d. 1992) served as Postmaster in Worthington and also worked at the Worthington Hardware Store. Elmer S. Snouffer (b. 1898, d. 1994) was a furniture maker and volunteer fireman for the Sharon Township Fire Department.

The Snouffer family has been important in local history since they first arrived among the second wave of families that migrated to the Worthington area. Mary Magdelena Baumgartner Snouffer (b. 1784, d. 1868) came to Worthington by wagon with seven of her eight children (one daughter had already married and stayed in Maryland) in the mid-1830s, having purchased the land that is currently Don Scott Field. Her husband John (b. ca. 1779, d. 1823, Frederick, Maryland) had died in their home state of Maryland. Four of her five sons – David, Michael, John and George – played a major role in the settlement of West Worthington, Linworth and Dublin (son Daniel moved to Campaign County, Ohio). George’s son Joseph W. Snouffer married Julietta Garner. They bought the farmland on the west side of the railroad tracks where Brookside Estates lies today. The road that ran past Joseph and Julietta’s farm was soon named Snouffer Road. Joseph and Julietta had ten children and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, most of whom were born, lived, died and are buried in Worthington.
