Death: Aug. 3, 1936

US Congressman. Elected to represent Tennessee's 4th District in the United States House of Representatives, serving from 1899 to 1903. Also served as a State Court Judge.

Crossville Chronicle August 13, 1936

After an illness of 7 months with heart disease, Judge Snodgrass passed away quietly at noon Sunday, August 9.
Funeral services were conducted at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the home, with Rev A Nightingale presiding.
More than 100 autos formed the funeral procession, escorted by State police.
When he was 10, his parents moved to Crossville, becoming some of its earliest settlers. He was educated in the public schools and read law in the office of his uncle, Congressman Henry C Snodgrass.
In 1889 he married Miss Lola Webb, daughter of Mr and Mrs H R Webb. Nine children were born to their marriage, 6 of whom survive. A son, Robert and 2 daughters, Elsie and Polly Robin, preceded him to the grave.
He became a member of the law firm of Snodgrass, DeRossett and Robinson. In 1898, at the age of 32, he was elected to Congress from the 4th District, where he served 2 terms. In 1906 he was appointed Judge of the 5th Judicial circuit upon the resignation of Cordell Hull. In 1925, Governor Austin Peay appointed him to the Tennessee Court of Appeals, where he served until 1934, then returned to Crossville to practice law.
For the next 35 years, he taught Sunday school and preached at the Christian church here.
At the time of his death, he was Chairman of the County Democratic Executive Committee.
He is survived by his widow; 3 sons, Jones L and Charles E Jr, Crossville; Captain Edgar H, Dayton, Ohio; 3 daughters, Mrs Nell Johnson, Brush, Colo; Mrs Lola Belle Taylor, Livingston; Mrs Joyce Howard, Crossville; a sister, Mrs E G Tollett Sr, Crossville; a brother, J T Snodgrass, Crossville. (bio by: K)
