Lorimer of Went Alexander, close friend of the family. Burial was in Claysville cemetery.
Miss Snodgrass was a daughter of the late Samuel McCullough and Esther Graham Snodgrass, born March 22 1873, on the McDowell farm, Buffalo Township, from which her parents moved to the Snodgrass home farm in 1875, which has since continued to be the Snodgrass home.
Throughout her home community Miss Snodgrass was known and highly esteemed for her many fine qualities of womanhood and Christian graces. She was a member of Taylorstown United Presbyterian church. She had a deep interest in the affairs of her church. She possessed a genial, kindly disposition, hospitable, a helper of the needy. Both her parents are deceased, the father passing away in June, 1926. She had charge of the home in the declining days of her mother and continued in the performance of those duties while her brother Samuel Snodgrass shared it with her. She leaves one other brother, John G. Snodgrass, of near Taylorstown, and two sisters, Mrs. John C.H. Maxwell, near Buffalo Village, and Mrs. Andrew Kerr of Bremen, Ohio. Miss Snodgrass underwent an operation near two years ago but her health became impaired the past summer and continued to decline until death ensued. She will be missed in her neighbourhood by many persons in whose hearts she was enshrined as a staunch friend.
