Below are scans from the Bible of Hattie A. Snook, printed in 1874. The first
two pages have to be the Peter Snook household that were still alive in 1874
(Jane Kishpaugh was already dead). There is also a postcard of famed preacher and abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher, I guess the family were fans of his. The last two pages are unidentified, one of the older gentlemen has to be Peter Snook, who was in his mid seventies when this Bible was printed, the others probably members of the Snook and Kishpaugh families. If you can help
identify these people, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ann Snook This has to be Hattie because a picture of her daughter, Lydia Stoll at about the same age wears what appears to be the same crucifix, as well as facial similarities.
Henry Ward Beecher
Unidentified, the gentleman on the left could be Peter Snook.
The elder gentleman on the left could be him. Personally this one is my favorite, he looks old and gnarly enough to be Peter. One of these ladies could be Jane Kishpaugh, who died several years before this Bible was printed in 1874.
