"Samuel Snoke, one of the prosperous and enterprising farmers of Clay Township, is a native of Indiana, born in Wasbash County in the year 1842, a son of Jacob & Hetty (Shadow) Snoke. When but nineteen years of age he enlisted in the service of his country in Company I, Twelfth Indiana Infantry, and served throughout the entire campaign. He participated in twenty two engagements, including the battles of Mission Ridge, Atlanta, Dalton, Buzzard Roost and Savannah. He was taken prisoner at Richmond, Kentucky, but was soon after paroled. After the close of the war he returned home somewhat shattered in health. He was united in marriage June 6, 1867, to Miss Ann E. Hinkson, of Clay Township, whose parents, Thomas and Ellinor (Frazee) Hinkson, came from Rush County, Indiana. To Mr. and Mrs. Snoke have been born two children-Jennie and James W., both of whom are natives of Kosciusko County, Indiana. After his marriage Mr. Snoke settled on the farm which is now owned by Newton Lucas, at that time the property of our subject. In 1870 he purchased a part of his present farm, which was also a part of his wife's inheritance. Mr. Snoke came to Indiana without capital, but by perservering industry and good management he has been prosperous in his agricultural pursuits, and is now classed among the wealthy and influential citizens of his township. Since coming to Clay Township he has served a number of terms as school director, and also held the office of supervisor. In his political views he is a Republican, but his family are principally Democratic. Christian Snoke, the paternal grandfather of our subject was a soldier in the war of 1812, enlisting in a Pennsylvania regiment. He was a resident of that State till his death."
