Wonder if there's a connection: My husband's family has Snook kin, in southwest Florida (Lakeland - Sanibel locations).

Karen, my husband descends from Palatine immigrants Johannes SCHNUCH and Juliana Cathrina Schroder KLEE. You can trace this family at my husband's online family tree.

Hello - My grgrgrgrandparents were Mathias Snook (Schnug) and Maria Christinas Kleckner. I believe this Reuben Snook or perhaps one of his children (going on memory here) was a guide for the famous western artist Charles Russell. In fact if you see the painting, A Bronc to Breakfast, this Snook was painted into the picture. He is the cook. Jim Avery, Dover PA
