It appears that in 1900 Daisy Emaline Snow, at 17, was not living with her parents and was a servant in the Cockerham residence in Wilkes County, NC. (This could be the wrong person, but what are the odds of there being two Daisy E. Snows born in the same month in the same county?) Five years later she married Frank Rash.

1905 Iowa State Census - Daisy Emaline Snow was out of North Carolina and living in Bangor Township, Marshall County, Iowa. - She married Frank Rash in December of this same year. Why did she move to Marshall County, Iowa? Frank's father was born in North Carolina, like Emma and her parents. Was there some familial connection that brought her to the Rashes in Iowa?
