Doris Belle Bender, born 7 Dec 1914 in Independence, IA, to Leonard Bender 
(b. 1 Aug 1886, d. 5 Nov 1965) & Anna Laura Snodgrass (b. 29 Jun 1889, d. 25 Dec 1914). 
Doris lost her mother from childbirth complications and so was raised by her paternal
grandparents. They were William Bender (b. 5 Feb 1861, d. 17 Dec 1938) and Eva Alta
(b. 22 Sep 1859, d. 2 Sep 1940), who had previously farmed in Brandon, IA. Doris graduated
from Independence High School in 1933. She worked for a short time before marrying
Walton Schultz on 10 Sep 1934 and moving to Iowa City. Walt was from the Deep River,
IA, area and had dated Doris through high school. Walt worked as a car mechanic, and Doris
made being a housewife the focus of her life. Three children were born to them in Iowa City. 
Janet (Rursch), b. 28 Jul 1936; James, b. 22 Jun 1940; and Sharon (Heal), b. 6 May 1944. 
Over the years Walt owned and managed several service stations in the Iowa City area. 
Meantime, Doris was taking care of the house, kids, and trying to stretch a dollar. Sewing for
the children to save money and be thrifty was a constant activity. As the children grew up and
moved into their own homes, Doris helped with grandchildren, being an excellent babysitter,
and in the meantime Walt was in the garden producing wonderful food for the table. In the
winter Doris sewed and Walt watched T.V. and read. As time went on, Doris became
interested in antiques and especially dolls. Many a wonderful hour was passed, sewing for all
the dolls. Doris bought, traded, and fixed dolls, loving every minute of it. She was a
member of the Iowa City Doll Club.
Up until the summer of 1988 either Walt or Doris could outwork anyone in the family. They
found out in the fall of 1988 that they both had cancer. Walt died at home in North Liberty,
IA, 30 Oct 1989. Doris was also at home when she died 14 Mar 1990.

G. W. [George] Snodgrass, M.D., farmer and stock-raiser, Section 24, post office,
Milton, was born Jan 1, 1834, in Dauphin County, Pa. When three years old he
came with his parents to Warren County, Ohio, where his father erected a grist
mill and also engaged in farming. Here he spent his youth and attended
school. At the age of sixteen he entered West Point College at Spring Bar,
Ohio, where he remained three years. He then entered the office of Dr. Wade,
his cousin, in Cincinnati, and attended the Cincinnati College of Medicine and
Surgery. In 1854 he came with his parents to Lee County, Iowa, where he
attended lectures at Keokuk Medical College, and the same year was induced by
Drs. Wallace and Egbert, to locate at Milton, going into partnership one year
with Dr. Wallace, and then on his own account. The doctor, though having a
very extensive practice, has never hung out a "shingle." He was married
November 6, 1856, to Miss Sarah J. Billups, a native of Virginia and an orphan
when they were married. They had five children: Wm. J., Martha J., Geo. W.,
John, and Sarah A. The doctor owns a fine farm of 800 or 900 acres, with
three fine houses, which makes him somewhat a granger. He is a purely
self-made man, starting with $100 less than nothing, he has acquired an
enviable reputation for his professional and social qualities.

1891 -- Hist. of Harrison Co., IA:
pages 877-8:
Hon. Thomas M. C. Logan, of River Sioux, Iowa, forms an important
factor in the history of Harrison County, with which he has been closely 
identified for almost a quarter of a century. While in a brief biographical 
notice it is impossible to do a prominent man's career ample justice, yet in 
keeping with the remainder of the representative men of Harrison County, 
the subjoined notice may suffice. Human life is full of two kinds of 
history--the written and unwritten, and not unfrequently does it occur, in 
fact it is the general rule, that the deeds of one's life which are of the most 
value to the world and the community, never find their way into printed 
history. The following is an outline of Hon. T. M. C. Logan's life.
He is a native of Indiana, born in Rush County, on the 13th of February,
1830. He is the son of Samuel and Sarah (Snodgrass) Logan, natives of 
Ireland and Virginia respectively. The father was an extensive business man, 
who died in Cincinnati, Ohio during the cholera epidemic of 1834, when our 
subject was but four years of age. [vss - Samuel Logan m. Sarah Snodgrass 
11 Oct 1827 Rush Co IN; and 1830 Rush Co IN has a John Snodgrass - need
the reading of that] By our subject's father's second marriage there were two 
sons born--T. M. C. and Jacob M., the latter, dying on the cars in 1861, near 
Hadley, Ill. Our subject's early life was spent in the Hoosier State, and he 
received his education at the district schools, and at the High School at 
Fairfield. His first business experience, on his own account, was in 1857, 
when he engaged in the stock and grain business in Richland Co., IL, 
continuing in the same until 1864, when he came to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 
where he handled grain in connection with Leech Bros., and remained there
until 1877, and then came to Logan, Iowa, where he embarked in the grain 
and livestock trade. In 1887, he commenced operations in River Sioux, 
buying grain and stock there and at Blencoe, which business he is still
following. During the last year, he shipped two hundred thousand bushels 
of grain from two points. He owns a flouring mill at River Sioux, which 
has a capacity of sixty barrels per day, and also an elevator having a capacity
of ten thousand bushels, also is operating one in Onawa.
Politically, Mr. Logan is a stanch supporter of the Republican party,
believing as he does that under its administration, this country is the most 
prosperous. In 1881, was nominated at Denison, for State Senator, on the 
Republican ticket, in the thirty-fourth Senatorial district, the candidate for 
Governor of Iowa in 1891, H. C. Wheeler being an opposing candidate in 
the convention. The district was then composed of Harrison, Monona, 
Crawford, Ida, and Sac Counties, and our subject was elected by a
majority of 110, holding the position four years, and serving with much 
credit, to himself as well as his constituents. In 1879, he was elected as a 
member of the Board of Supervisors in Harrison Co., and has always been 
active in educational matters, as well as espousing the cause of temperance,
and let it here be remarked that the thousands of loyal party workers, 
who believe in temperance, have been the redeeming feature and saving
power, of the Republican party in Iowa.
At the time our subject took his seat as a Supervisor in Harrison Co.,
county warranty were at 20 and 25% discount, but through his efforts and 
others, the debt was bonded and the credit of the county brought up to par. 
Again the law of Iowa requires that in order to hold a bondsman, funds 
must be called in and counted at regular specified times, and through our 
subject's persistency in requiring this to be done, he saved the county
several thousand dollars.
As to Mr. Logan's domestic relations, it may be said that he was first
married at La Porte, IN, in Feb 1851 to Miss Charlotte Snodgrass, a 
daughter of John and Matilda (Steward) [vss - Matilda Stewart] Snodgrass 
[vss - 14 Jan 1840 La Porte Co IN, widow Matilda Snodgrass m. Samuel 
Elithorpe - they & Charlotte are on 1850 La Porte Co IN]. By this marriage
union, there were two children born -- Reuben and Charlotte. 
Reuben was born in Rush Co., IN, 1 Jul 1853, and Lottie, in Linn Co., 
IA, 18 Jan 1865. The mother of these children was called from earth in 1866.
For his second wife our subject married Miss Harriet Herbert at Cedar
Rapids, Iowa. She is the daughter of Samuel and Dehelia Herbert 
[vss - 1 Jan 1846 La Porte Co IN Delila Snodgrass m. Samuel Herbert - is 
she, too, d/o John Snodgrass & Matilda ?]. By this marriage union, nine 
children were born- Louise S., born 29 Jan 1868; William E., 30 Sep 1869; 
Merritt J., 1 May 1872; Ernest A., 3 Jan 1874; Mabel M., 21 Nov 1875; 
Maude A., 10 Dec 1877; T. M. C., Jr., 8 Aug 1880; Nita E., 25 Sep 1884;
Harrison G., 8 May 1886; all born in Harrison Co., Iowa.
Like many of the representative men of Harrison Co., our subject is
identified with various civic societies, which have for their object, the 
upbuilding and maintenance of good society. He belongs to Masonic 
Lodge, No. 220, A. F. & A. M.; Missouri Valley Chapter, and Ivanhoe 
Commandery of Knights Templar at Council Bluffs, and is also an 
honored member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows at Logan.
In reviewing the life of such an one as our subject, one is impressed 
with the value of intelligence and uprightness of character as found in his 
daily walk. In political circles, he has always been classed as one of the 
leaders and not unfrequently do you hear the remark that certainly one can 
learn more from Mr. Logan in one evening than from many others in a 
lifetime. He keeps himself well posted in this line as well as others and
therefore is always able to explain the position he takes by facts and 
figures which never cease to be interesting. He has one of the best 
political libraries in the country, among which is Young's Political history, 
Tom Benton's Thirty years in the Senate (two volumes); Cooper's Political
history; Blaine's Twenty Years in Congress; also the American Britannica 
and Johnson's Encyclopaedia.

27 Mar 1913 -- The Wapello Tribune (Thursday):
Mrs. Sarah A. McDaniel, a prominent and well-known resident of this city,
passed away at her home on Tuesday morning, 25 Mar 1913, at 8 o'clock. Mrs.
McDaniel's health had been gradually failing for years, and death came gently,
releasing her spirit from a weary body.
Sarah Ann Snodgrass was born in Fulton county, IL, on 13 Feb 1836. Mr.
and Mrs. McDaniel were both well known as pioneer residents of this city, as
all of their married life was spent in Wapello. Three children were born to

them, two of whom died in infancy, and one daughter, Maud, grew to womanhood.
Her death, in 1884, at the age of 26 years, was a heavy blow to her parents,
causing a sorrow to the mother's heart, which was never healed. Mr. McDaniel's 
death occurred 2 Oct 1908, and thus the wife and mother was left alone in her old age.
The deceased united with the Presbyterian church 17 Jun 1888, and was ever a 
faithful member, living daily in the presence of her Master and following closely 
where He led. She was a loyal Christian, trusting with all simplicity in Him "who 
knoweth and doeth all things well." Faithfully did she follow the command of the 
Blessed Christ: "Love ye one another even as I have loved you."
Mrs. McDaniel is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Matilda Armstrong of Eaton, CO; 
Mrs. Susan Presbury of Wilbur, OK; and Mrs. Clarissa Rose of London Mills, IL; 
and one brother, Robert Snodgrass, of Lakeland, FL. She is also survived by a 
number of nephews and nieces, who regarded her with affection and were glad 
of any opportunity to serve her or lighten her burdens.
The funeral services were held from the Presbyterian church this afternoon, 
27 Mar, at 2:30 o'clock, conducted by the Rev. Carl Montanus.
Interment was in Wapello cemetery.

An Interesting Find.
One fall, in the '50's, Dr. Gutch, then a young medical student, was teaching school near
where Maxon now stands. One day, during the noon hour, he and the school boys were out
on the hillsides gathering hazel nuts. They saw a strange object some distance away, near the
roadside. Some thought it a deer, others a mad dog having a fit. They crept cautiously up to
it to investigate, and they finally discovered that it was a man. They approached the
lifeless form and discovered it to be that of Joe McMullen. Gutch examined his pulse and 
then remarked: "Damned, if he ain't alive!" They carried him to a hay-stack near by, and
in due time he became conscious and returned home. He had just made a horse trade with
Jesse Snodgrass, and had gotten $15 to boot. He had considered it a good trade,
and to get the better of Jesse Snodgrass in a horse trade was an achievement worthy of
celebrating by taking a drink at Harrow's grocery. He had taken a little too much, and
on his return had become "becalmed."

page 251: The associate Presbyterians ("Seceders")
An incident of early times will serve to illustrate the colonizing methods of the "Seceders." 
Old Billy Piper lived on a claim in the Snodgrass neighborhood. The farm is now owned by 
Mr. Lathan. Piper was not a "Seceder" by any means, but Jesse Snodgrass and his
neighbors were. It was, of course, desireable on the part of the "Seceders" to locate settlers in
their midst who were of the same religious persuasion as themselves. One day Jesse
brought into the neighborhood a man from Ohio. The man was a "Seceder," and hence was a
very desirable man to locate. Old Billy Piper was grubbing near the roadside when Mr.
Snodgrass rode up with his man. After a friendly salutation and introduction of the two
strangers, Mr. Snodgrass thus opened negotiations for the purchase of the claim in behalf of 
his man: "Would ye sell yer claim, Misther Piper? Sure an' ye are a foine man, an' a gude
neighbor, but ye are not the kind of a mon we want wi' us, an' we would loike til git rid of ye." 
This very frank admission greatly incensed the old unregenerate anti-"Seceder," and seizing a
fence stake, he made after the offending neighbor, who beat a hasty retreat, leaving his horse
behind hitched to a fence.

pages 270-272: Jesse Snodgrass
One cannot carry his investigations far into the history of Monroe county without learning 
that the Snodgrass family has long been a prominent and honored one in this section of the
The year 1846 witnessed the arrival not only of our subject but his parents and their children, 
and the three generations which have been represented have taken an active part, first in
reclaiming the wild land for farming purposes and since then in carrying forward the work of
improvement and upbuilding.
Jesse Snodgrass was born in Muskingum county, Ohio, 1 Jan 1831, a son of Jesse and Jane
(Atchison) Snodgrass. The father was born in Ireland in 1784 and spent the first twenty-four
years of his life on the Emerald Isle, after which he crossed the Atlantic to America in 1809
a sailing vessel. He took up his abode in Pennsylvania, and the year 1812 was an eventful one
his history, for in that year he was married and he also enlisted for service in the second war
England. He wedded Jane Atchison, a native of Washington county, PA, and in 1825 they
removed to Ohio, where they remained for twenty years, coming thence to Monroe Co., IA,
1846. All was wild here, the district being a frontier region, and the father entered from the
government the land upon which the city of Albia now stands, making it his home for nine
years. His last days were spent upon the farm of his son Jesse, where he died in 1876 at the
age of ninety-two years. His wife, whose birth occurred in 1795, died in Albia in 1858. 
In his political views Jesse Snodgrass Sr. was a Democrat in early life, but became a 
staunch adherent of the abolition principles, and when the Republican party was formed to
prevent the further extension of slavery, he joined its ranks and continued to march under its
banners until his death.
Jesse Snodgrass, whose name introduces this record, remained a resident of Ohio until 
fifteen years of age, when he accompanied his parents on their removal to Monroe county, 
where he has since resided, and its history from pioneer times down to the present is
familiar to him. He assisted in the arduous task of developing a new farm from the
unbroken prairie, following the breaking plow and later planting crops and gathering
harvests. Throughout most of his life he has carried on farming, and is today the owner of a
valuable tract of rich and productive land, comprising 250 acres. It is splendidly
equipped with excellent buildings, the latest improved machinery and all accessories for
facilitating the work of the farm, and through the careful and systematic control of his
business affairs he has gained a very handsome experience. 
In addition to his agricultural pursuits he was engaged in merchandising in Albia for
nine years. Mr. Snodgrass was united in marriage to Miss Sarah M. Martin, a native of
Monroe Co., IN, and a daughter of William and Sarah Martin, who were natives of Ireland. 
After living in Indiana for some time they became residents of Monroe Co., Iowa, in
1846, and here they spent their remaining days. To Mr. and Mrs. Snodgrass have been born
nine children, of whom six are yet living: Olive, who married John Lucas and has eight
children; Cora B., at home; Emma, the wife of Dr. Bartram; Charles, who is married
and has two children; Susie, who is married and has two children; and Clara, who is also
married but has no children. Mr. Snodgrass provided his family with excellent
educational privileges, all having entered the district schools and from there advanced until
they became students in the state normal. The family is one of prominence in the
community, noted for intelligence, business capacity, social qualities and moral worth. 
Most of the representatives of the name living in this county are members of the United 
Presbyterian church, although some are identified with other denominations. Since the
parents of our subject came to the frontier of Iowa in 1846, Monroe county has been
indebted to the family for what has been accomplished by its members in four generations for
the welfare and progress of this section of the state. Mr. Snodgrass has borne his full
share in upholding the country's best interests, and wherever he is known, he is esteemed
for his genuine worth. He is a supporter of the Republican party, with which he has
affiliated since casting his first presidential vote for John C. Fremont in 1856, but has never
been an office seeker, preferring to devote his time and energies to his business affairs, in
which he has met with gratifying success.

Samuel Snodgrass, father of Joseph was born in Virginia and 
was married to Susan McCastin [vss - McCaslin], dau. of William and
Elizabeth McCastin, who came directly to this country from Ireland.
Samuel and Susan (McCastin) Snodgrass were the parents of eleven 
children: James, Ellen, William, Samuel, Jane, Mabel, Robert, 
Phoebe, Joseph, John and Edmund, all of who lived to maturity. The
parents lived for some time after marriage on a farm in Virginia, 
and at an early day removed to Jefferson County, Indiana, and 
settled within three miles of Hanover College; they resided in this
County for many years and went to Decatur County, Indiana, where 
the father died at the age of fifty-four years. He was an 
industrious, capable man, but owing to an accident which occurred
in his childhood he did not enjoy the blessing of good health. In 
his younger days he taught school. He and his wife were earnest 
members of the Presbyterian Church.
Joseph Snodgrass, son of Samuel and Susan Snodgrass, was born
in Jefferson Co., IN, in 1822, and received a limited education in
the common schools of that day. He went with his father when a lad

followed for ten years. At the age of 22 years he started a tannery
business in Bartholomew Co., IN, where he remained for three years;
he then sold out and returned to Decatur Co., and engaged in the same 
business at Greensburg. In 1845 he was married in Johnson Co., IN, 
to Miss Jane A. Hammond, a dau. of Lot and Betsey (Barnum) Hammond.
Mr. Hammond was a native of Baltimore, and his father was a merchant
in that City. Mrs. Hammond was a native of Connecticut and of an old
Puritan family; they were the parents of ten children, who lived to 
maturity. Mr. and Mrs. Snodgrass have seven children: Caroline, 
wife of Benjamin Laswell; Elijah, who married Jane Miller; Alonzo,

wife, whose maiden name was Elizabeth Adams, he had children as follows: John,
Adams, Hannah, George, Hiram, Lawrence, Alexander, Elizabeth. She died in Ohio, and
for his second wife he wedded Miss Mary Williams, who bore him five children, namely: 
Susan, wife of George Ross, of Laclede County, MO; Margaret, wife of John Lawyer,
Liberty Center, IA; Catherine, who died at the age of 21; Jacob, whose name forms the
heading for this article; and Mary, the deceased wife of a Mr. Snodgrass. Mrs. Mary
Lamb, the mother of our subject, died when he was a child of 2 years. She was a member of
the United Brethren Church, was a true Christian, and loved by all who knew her. Her
remains are interred in River Hill cemetery. The father's third marriage was to Mrs.
Barnhouse, by whom he had two children: Lydia and Mary. The former died in childhood and

First Cavalry, Co. F. - Pvt. William E. Snodgrass, enlisted July 18 (1861?).

1887 -- Portrait & Biog. Album of Washington Co., IA:
pages 621-2: Mrs. Eliza Moorhead. 
The distinction of being the oldest living settler of this county attaches to this lady, who with
her husband, Matthew Moorhead, came to the county when the State was yet a Territory, 
and purchased a claim from Adam Ritchie, who had preceded them. The location of Mr.
and Mrs. Moorhead was made on their present farm, July 27, 1837. Her husband was a son
of Matthew and Lydia (David) Moorhead, both natives of Westmoreland Co., PA., who
afterward settled in Butler Co., Ohio, in which county Matthew Moorhead was born. His
mother's children consisted of two sons and three daus.-- Robert, Matthew, Ann, Jane, and
Mary -- Matthew being the only one who came to this State. After the death of their
mother, his father was married to Mrs. Hester Blackburn, mother of James, Mary & another
son by her first husband. The couple remained in Butler County, Ohio, during their
lifetime, and were buried on her sacred soil.
Matthew Moorhead, Jr., was born in 1809, and his wife Eliza Snodgrass, whom he married
1834, in Sangamon Co., IL, was born in 1815. She was a dau. of William and Mary (Vance)
Snodgrass. William was a son of Robert and Sarah (Taylor) Snodgrass, and his birthplace 
upon the ocean, as the parents were emigrating from Ireland to America. They were natives
Scotland, but had removed to Ireland, being heirs of an estate to which they were entitled. 
Robert and Sarah Snodgrass were the parents of William, James, Agnes, Sarah, Samuel,
and John. The family settled near Pittsburgh, Pa., and later moved to Greene County, Ohio,
where the parents remained during their lives. Both were members of the Seceder Church and
life-long Christians. William Snodgrass was for almost half a century a minister in the
Baptist Church, near Athens, Sangamon Co., Ill., to which State he with his family removed 
in 1822, and later of Dubuque County, Iowa. He served as a private during the War of 1812, 
and the widow of Samuel Snodgrass still preserves his old knapsack as a relic of that war. He
was in his seventy-third, and his wife in her seventy-second year when their deaths occurred 
at Dubuque, Iowa, to which place they removed in the spring of 1836.
Matthew Moorhead, the husband of our subject, learned the cabinet trade in Scipio, Ohio, 
and after coming to Illinois engaged in that business until his emigration to this State. In
Sangamon County, Ill., he met, loved, and won the heart and hand of our subject, then a
young lady aged nineteen years. The marriage ceremony was performed at her father's
Feb. 6, 1834, by Rev. Peter Cartwright, the best-known Methodist minister of his day. Under
the Rev. Cartwright's preaching, she was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal
Church, being received into full membership at the home of Bazilla Clark, of Sangamon
County. The young couple for some time made their home at Salisbury, Ill., where their two
eldest children were born-- William R. and Mary A. Both are deceased, the latter at date of
death being the wife of Rev. John Haynes, Presiding Elder of the Meth. Episcopal Church of
the Burlington District.
July 27, 1837, Matthew Moorhead, wife and two small children, headed a train of
ox-teams, which conveyed their goods from Illinois to this county. The hot sun poured its
fiercest rays upon the emigrants, and they suffered for water while crossing the wide prairie
between Burlington and their new home, which was a log house standing opposite Mrs.
Brown's residence. Their nearest neighbor on the west was Thomas Caldwell, and on the
east Abraham Hulick, while neither on the north nor south had a settler entered a claim. One
of the earliest, if not the first marriage in the county, was at the new home, two weeks after
the Moorheads came, the contracting parties being John Hulick and Nancy Goble, who with
three other couples came on horseback to see Esquire Adam Ritchie tie the knot. This was
the first marriage he was ever called upon to solemnize, and not a word of any kind of
ceremony did he know, but through the aid of a Methodist Episcopal discipline owned by
Mrs. Moorhead, it was satisfactorily performed. 
Ritchie was the first, and Matthew Moorhead the second Territorial Justice in this county. 
After the latter received his commission he achieved quite a well-earned reputation as Justice,

and his
acknowledged ability made him the choice of the Republican party, and in 1859 he was
as the representative of that party to the State Legislature, in which body he both made
felt and heard, and as a member, when the extra session was called in 1861 by Gov.
to make provisions for raising both troops and money to assist in putting down the Rebellion.
One of the early landmarks in this county was the swinging sign, "Traveler's Inn," standing
in front of Matthew Moorhead's house, which was a well-known hostelry, and a favorite
lodging place for the hungry and tired traveler. Matthew was an entertaining host, and his
young wife 
was an excellent cook. All the goods for Washington and the settlers along English River,
were carted from Burlington, and the teamsters as well as the parties looking for lands, were
made welcome. The first Methodist Episcopal class in the county was organized at their
house in 1838, by Rev. West, consisting of five members -- Matthew and Eliza Moorhead,
Benjamin and Susan Sigafoose, and Nelson Ball, of which class Matthew was Class-Leader. 
Their house was for many years used by the Methodist Episcopal members for public worship,
and from the society a large membership has grown.
After a long lifetime characterized by thrift and industry, Matthew Moorhead was gathered 
to his fathers, his death occurring in 1873. He was the father of ten children, four living, and
all attained maturity: Joseph A., the youngest son, remains on the home farm with his mother;
he resembles his father greatly in spirit and actions, and has had a thorough business
experience, not only in this State but in Colorado, where for several years he was engaged in
the stock trade. 
Sarah J., the oldest dau. living, and many claim for her the honor of being the first white child
born in the county yet living, was born Nov. 22, 1838, and was reared and married in
Crawford Township; her husband is Robert A. Young, a prosperous farmer of Henry County, 
whose farm lies partly in this county. Nine children have graced their union -- Eliza J., David
M., John W., Laura M., Olive F., Lula J., Mary E., Ada R., and Robert C. Eliza is the wife of
Walker W. Hough, of this county, and the mother of one dau., Edna F., the only
great-grandchild of Mrs. Moorhead. John Wesley married Mrs. Hattie Thomas, and resides
in Paola, Miami Co., Kan.; Matthew D., a resident of Denver, married Melati Kitchen. At the
age of seventy-two, our subject appears active and fully possessed of every faculty. She
manages her own house, which
is cheerful, bright and roomy, and presents the appearance of comfort. As a family, the
Moorheads have no superiors in the county, for honor and the esteem of their neighbors and
acquaintances. The data forming this sketch was furnished by Mrs. Moorhead, and may be
considered correct.

. . . served as a ruling elder in the church. He leaves to mourn their loss his wife, two sons,
stepmother, five sisters, six brothers, and a host of friends and neighbors. The brothers and 
sisters are John M. of Cuba, MO; Jas. L., of Gardner, KS; Caleb, Samuel, and Ralph of
Minneapolis, MN; Wm. and Lillie of CA; Lutie and Stepmother of St. Louis, MO; Cyntha 
Pasis, Tolma, ND; Maggie Cunningham, Rathdrum, ID; and Kittie Birling of Kansas City,
Mr. Snodgrass will be greatly missed not only in the church but also in the community at 
large. He stood for progressive farming, and his influence has been for the betterment of the
community. He took an active part in the Farmers Institute, and for some years he has been
the Board of Managers of the Allerton Chautauqua, and only a few weeks ago accompanied
Chautauqua committee to Des Moines to help select the talent for the coming season. On 
the street and everywhere he was jolly and good hearted with everyone, thus making a host
friends who will sadly miss his genial face and kindly words from our midst.
The funeral services will be held at the home, Thursday 1:30 p.m., conducted by Rev. E. H.
Black, after which the body will be laid to rest in the Allerton Cemetery.
