THE WESTERN STAR, 29 March 1912
Dies at Four - Score and Eight Years.

O. P. Snare of Wilmore returned on Thursday of last week from Toledo, Ohio, where he had been called by the death of his aged mother. She had been confined to her bed for about 5 months, yet during all that time
she never uttered a complaint. Her failing physical condition and her death were due to her advanced age of 88 years. She was a native of Lincoln county, Ohio. Her maiden name was Margaret Lake. In 1846 she was married to Joseph Snare who died in 1870 from a gunshot wound received during the Civil War at Ft. Powhattan, Va. In 1875 she was again married, this time to Geo. Clapper, but he died 5 years later. Mrs.
Clapper was the mother of 10 children, 6 of whom are still living and 4 of whom, with quite a large number of grandchildren, were present at the funeral. Six of the grandchildren acted as pallbearers. Burial was made
in McComb, Ohio, her old home. Mrs. Clapper was one of the pioneer women of the Buckeye state. She passed through many of the stirring scenes in that historic state. In every respect she was a splendid type of the noble women who helped to build the Middle West. Her interest in public affairs continued almost to the last. For nearly 25 years she had been a reader of this paper.
