John Houston Snow was the fifth child of Joseph and Margaret Snow born 24 Mar 1877 in Wartburg, TN.

John's death had been recorded as 27 Jul 1944 probably because of the time of this photo. The California Death index stated that John Snow died 13 Apr 1943 in Lassen County, CA.

The time difference between death and burial suggests that John was cremated before being placed next to his parents, Joseph and Margaret Snow in the Snow Cemetery, Lewis County, WA.

So seven people in this photo spent part of their lives in the Winlock area."
