    C. G. SNOOK

    C. G. SNOOK, who is superintendent of the Troy Carriage Sunshade Company, one of Troy's important business enterprises, has been a resident of this city for a quarter of a century, but he was born in Knox County, Ohio. After completing his public school education, Mr. Snook learned the trade of carriage trimming at Mt. Vernon, Ohio, where he remained for four years, going from there to McKeesport, Penna., for a year and a half and subsequently to Henderson, Kentucky, for the same length of time. He then spent one year at his trade in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and one year again at Mt. Vernon, after which he came to Troy and for fifteen years thereafter was connected with the Troy Buggy Works Company, during a large part of this time being foreman of the trimming department. In 1900 he became identified with the Troy Carriage Sunshade Company, accepting the superintendency of the plant and acquiring stock in the concern. In 1893 Mr. Snook was married to Miss Anna Counts, of Troy, and they have two children, Adelaide Elizabeth and John Lloyd. Mr. Snook and family belong to the Episcopal Church, of which he is junior warden.

    In politics a stanch Republican, Mr. Snook takes considerable interest in local matters of a public nature and is serving as a member at large of the City Council of Troy. Fraternally, he is a Knight of Pythias and socially is a member of the Troy Club, of which he is a director.
