I can't help you with the Township but I can help on Snowball.
CPT Ben Taylor built a grist mill on Calf Creek in 1875 and the population in that area grew. About 1886 the townfolks applied for a name change from the US Postal Department. They changed from Calf Creek to Snowball (or Snow Hall if you know the full story). I assume that would be the "official" date that the town came into existence.

Just an interesting note. It is such a small community now but it was once a booming place. The newspaper reported that at the annual "picnic" (what we call a fair or festival) they would have around 2000 people attend. That was very surprising to me, I don't know where 2000 people would gather in that town!!
