Birth: Dec. 28, 1852
Death: Jan. 10, 1936

Crossville Chronicle January 16, 1936

Mrs Virginia Snodgrass Swafford, 83, died at the home of her nephew, D L
Snodgrass Jr, Chattanooga, at a late hour Friday, January 10, after an
extended illness.
She was the widow of the late Ruff Swafford, and the sister of the late D L
Snodgrass, who was judge of the State Supreme Court for 16 years.
She is survived by her sister, Mrs E G Tollett Sr; 2 brothers, Judge C E
Snodgrass and J T Snodgrass.
Funeral services were held at Chapman Funeral Home, Chattanooga on Saturday
at 3 p.m. with burial in Forest Hill cemetery.
Mrs Swafford was born December 28, 1852 in White County, living there until
her marriage, in early girlhood, to Ruff Swafford, a lawyer of Pikeville,
Bledsoe County. After not many years of married life, her husband died.
Her parents moved from White county to Crossville, and she moved to her
parents home shortly after her husband's death. When her sister-in-law died
(wife of D L Snodgrass) leaving 5 small children, Mrs Swafford went to the
Snodgrass home and mothered the children. After the death of her father
about 35 years ago, she lived for several years with her mother, who died
about 25 years ago.
Last Christmas she came to Crossville for her last trip, seeing her brother
and her sister.
