      CHARLES VAN RENSSELAER SNOW
      Uncle Charles moved to Irish Grove, Atchison County Missouri, near Rockport ,just a short time before his mother, brothers, and sisters moved to Council Bluffs in 1848.
      He married Sally Etoline Mann Sept. 10,1848. They were married by Rev. H .B.Sutton. They had three children and then she died Oct. 9,1852. Their youngest child, Lucina Etoline, died the next summer, July 25,1853.
      Two years later March 20,1854, he married Margaret Skeene. They were married by Rev. Jessie R. Allen in Irish Grove. Margaret was born Jan.11,1835. After they had two children, he went to Rush Medical College Chicago where he graduated with an M.D. Feb.17,1858. His diploma was signed by Jno. H. Kenzie Act. President, and Grant Goodrich, Sec..
      After his graduation, he and Dr. John Lewis his sister Lydia's husband, took up the practise of medicine together. In the first of this history, I have listed all the children born to him up to 1861. After that he and Aunt Margaret had seven more children. They were; Alice born Sept. 26,1863, William born Nov. 10,1865, Amos E. born Sept. 9,1869, Maggie born Sept. 9 ,1871 Frank Howard born Feb.18,1874, Ida May born Feb.l,1876 and Orpha Pearl born March 28,1878.
      Uncle Charles was a member of the Missouri Legislature. The Atchison County Journal Sept. 24,1903 published an article about him. The article seems to be from m. editor
      ial under the caption of "Forty Years With the Atchison County Journal, 1863 to 1902." The writer of the article says: "He with others, took a twenty hour trip by stage coach from St. Joseph, Missouri and then it continues"We arrived at our destination Sunday morning, Sept.6, at 3 o'clock . We carried a letter of introduction to Colonel A.B.Durfee from Colonel Thompson who stopped at St. Joseph on business; and the afternoon of the day of our arrival it was presented, and the following morning we were duly installed and made acquainted with the several promoters of the enterprise. In addition to Colonel Thompson, there were A.B.Durfee, Bennet Pike, Dr. Charles V. Snow, and F.M. Thompson, a quintet of as good a men as ever graced the earth, and as different in personal appearance and character as men could well be.(Then he gives a description of each one. Of Uncle Charles he says:) Dr. Charles V. Snow was a rare character. In personal appearance he was spare and very tall and slender; in intellect
      a Giant, and had he stepped aside from his chosen profession, he would have been widely known among men. He was a man of deep thought, tender and sympathetic as a woman, and well fitted for his profession. He was incorruptable and his integrity was never questioned. He represented Atchison County in the legislature of 1876-77 and was a zealous and effective worker. He was a Union Democrat. He departed this life April 11,1879 at the age of 59 after residing in Atchison County for over 30 years. The men of his profession said of him that he stood high in his profession. He was a member of the Disciples of Christ Church, and died in that faith."
      April 7 1879 Uncle Charles' eighteen year old son, Rodell, died. Four days later Uncle Charles himself died at Auburn, Nebraska leaving his wife with a large family to raise. Her youngest child was not quite a year old. She lived and cared for her family until they were all grown. She died May 10,1914.
      The only ones of Uncle Charles's family I could learn anything about were his son Frank H. Snow who is a minister at Dunbar, Nebraska at present 1947. Another son, Charles 0. Snow was Judge of Nemaha County, Nebraska for many years. He died at Auborn Dec. 28,1938.
