Marion Star, Wednesday, Nov 6, 1918

J. R. SNIPES

James R. Snipes, a respected merchant of Marion, died at his home at the old Fair Ground Friday, after an attack of influenza, followed by pneumonia. He had been ill only a short time and the announcement of this death came as a surprise except to those close to him, and to them it was a great shock. Mr. Snipes was an unusually strong and vigorous man and it was surprising how quickly he fell a victim to disease. For several years he had been successfully conducting a small mercantile business in the eastern part of the city. He was highly respected by his community and was considered an honest, upright man. He was a member of several secret orders and was a faithful member of Spring Branch Methodist Church. The funeral was conducted by Dr. J. W. Daniel at Rose Hill Cemetery Saturday afternoon. Mr. Snipes is survived by his wife and 8 children.
