Their married lifeextended over a period of 39 years, the wife dying in Oct 1900. In1867 they moved to Michigan, settling in Tuscola Co, where theyresided until 1883 when they came to Wise, Isabella Co, where theylived until the death summons came. To them were born ten children,six boys and four girls. Three of the boys, Charlie, Joseph and John, diedbefore the parents. There still survive three sons, George, William andFrank, who reside in Wise. All the daughters are still living: Mrs. Wm.LEOSH and Mrs. James HERSEY of Wise, Mrs. Len WOOD or Gilmore,and Mrs. Wm. JOHNSON of Farwell.
      Mr. SNEAR was a member of the GAR, having volunteered for his
      adopted country in 1861 and followed the flag for three years.
      Since the death of his wife, he had resided with his son George. On
      Sunday last he seemed in his usual health and had spent part of the dayvisiting at another son's. When he returned home he lay down uponthe bed and was there found dead, the end coming evidently without astruggle.
      The funeral was held at the ME Church in Loomis, services being
      conducted by Rev. PARSONS of Coleman, and interment in cemetery atLoomis. The very large attendance at the funeral attested the worth ofthe deceased and the high esteem in which he was held.Date: 23 Nov 2002
