Corydon Goodrich Snow was the son of Corydon Proctor Snow and Elizabeth Dixon Paddock of Princeton, Bureau County, Illinois.
Elizabeth's brother was George Hussey Paddock who was career army and may have had some influence in Corydon's choice to serve.
I can't be sure, but I believe he attended medical school at Keokuk, Iowa as did his brother Allen. Corydon P. was a Civil War veteran.
Corydon died in Los Angeles, California. His widow died November 18, 1972 in Simi Valley, California. I can find no evidence of any children. The marriage must have taken place between 1910 and 1920. In 1910, he was in the Philippines and in 1920, he was at the military hospital at Buncomb, North Carolina.
I was not able to get much of his record as I am not next of kin, He was my first cousin three times removed. I suspect most of his records were destroyed in the repository fire at St. Louis. Oddly, the index card recording his widow filing for benefits was with the Civil War pension records.
He was retired in 1923, have been found incapacitated for active service. The announcement was in the Indianapolis Star dated January 3, 1923 from a wire service posting from Washington dated January 2. The Washington Post also had a few Military News columns with some of his other assignments. If you like, I can forward them to you.
Corydon G. Snow was born in 1883 and died in 1928. He served as Major, United States Army Medical Corps.
We are actively seeking information about Major Snow.
