In 1887 his wife, the love of his youth, the helpmate of his life,and the joy of his old age,was called to rest. This sore affliction was a terrible blow but he survived it, calmly awaiting the summons of the Maker to come also.
The desceased had five children living at the time of his death; Samuel Snodgrass of kirklin township, Susan Reed, wife of William Reed, and leonard Snodgrass of Michigan township, Jemima Gano and James Snodgrass of Sugar Creek township.
In early life Mr. Snodgrass united with the Christian church, since which time he always had that blessed hope of a crown of life that fadrth not away, believing in the restitution of all things spoken by God through the mouths of his holy prophets since the world began.
