PASSING  AWAY

Last Evening of John E. Snepp, Ex-Trustee
Of Jackson Township Who Was Taking Treatment at a
Columbus Sanitarium - Leaves A Family
-------
          (Wednesday, November 22) -- The death of ex-trustee John R. Snepp, of Jackson township, occurred at 9:30 o'clock last night at a sanitarium in Columbus where be had gone for treatment, several days ago.  A year or more ago Mr. Snepp suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he never fully recovered, and it was this which was the direct cause of his death.  Mr. Snepp was aged about sixty years, and was the oldest son of the late Daniel Snepp, whose memory is cherished by all who knew him.  He leaves a widow and several children, all grown.  Mr. Snepp was a good citizen, one of a kind that any community would sorely miss, and his death will be a loss to Jackson township where he was born and raised.

          The death of  John E. Snepp  at Crump's Sanitarium at Columbus was very sudden Tuesday evening, the Herald saying that he ate a hearty supper and appeared to be in his usual health.  At about nine o'clock he and his wife retired.  Shortly afterward he began frothing profusely at the mouth and became speechless.  Dr. Morrow was summoned and  Dr. Pettigrew arrived soon afterward, but they were unable to relieve the sufferer and he died in a short time.  Drs. Morrow and Pettigrew demanded an autopsy and an inquest and they were held Wednesday morning.  Drs. Baker, Voris, Morrow, Pettigrew and Wood were present at the autopsy.  Coroner Fugate held the inquest and rendered a verdict to the effect that the cause of death was passive congestion with tributary causes of heart, lung, liver, kidney and spleen diseases.  The funeral occurred Friday afternoon from St. George's church, four miles northeast of Edinburg in this county.  Interment at the St. George cemetery.

          Mr. John Blessing  Wednesday received the intelligence of the death of  David Snepp,  at his home in Alexanderville, Ohio, sometime Monday evening.  Mr. Snepp was found dead in his barn in a stall in fron of his horse.  He had evidently died of heart disease.  He formerly resided in this county and was prominent in Shelby county politics, at one time being defeated for Recorder of this county by  Barney Worland,  by a very narrow margin.  The following year he moved to Ohio, where his death occurred as stated.  He will be buried at Alexanderville to-day afternoon at one o'clock.  The deceased leaves a widow and three children.
