Two presentations about the Murder of Theora Hix,
by my third cousin, Dr. James Howard Snook, were best done in my
estimation by Nancy Patzer, of Short North Gazette,
Ohio and the Ohio Exploration
Society founded by Jason Robinson.
Both the Short North Gazette and Ohio Exploration Society were
gracious enough to allow me to present those articles in their entirety
on Faded Into the Mists of Time website.
So a special thanks to Jason Robinson, Founder of Ohio
Exploration Society, and Margaret Marten, Editor, Short North Gazette.
Links to both the Short North Gazette and Ohio Exploration
Society have been provided on their pages below, I strongly encourage
you to go visit their websites as there are a great deal of interesting
stories, news, and articles on the Arts at their websites.
What really wasn’t known at the time of Dr. Snook’s trial was
his lineage, quite probably had it been known at the time the newspapers
would have had a field day.
Dr. Snook’s 3rd Great Grandmother was Elsie Rockefeller
Snook; she also was the Great-Great Aunt of John D. Rockefeller of
Standard Oil, while she had been long dead by the time of Dr. Snook’s
trial. One notable Ohio personality wasn’t Dr. Snook’s, 3rd Cousin John Stout
Snook of the Paulding, Ohio
area. John Stout Snook was
a three term United States Congressman, and at the time of James Howard
Snook’s trial, he was a sitting Judge of the Court of Common Pleas.
These prominent relationships are but a few I have chosen to
mention, by all my research and historical accounts, the Snook’s were a
noble, hardworking, Christian group of people, who excelled to
accomplish great things.
Dr. Snook himself was on that path with the invention of the Snook Hook,
which is still used today to spay and neuter animals, along with his
gold medal at the 1920 Olympics at Antwerp,
to his esteemed profession at
Ohio State University.
He strayed from the path, and the matters that
followed should not be used to judge his late wife, child, or other
members of the Snook family.
His actions however motivated were his own, and he alone was held
to account for them. To view each generation of Dr. Snook’s direct
