1906 :: Mayor Snively Stricken with Paralysis

Rockdale, Texas, January 20. -- Captain H.F. Snively, an old and highly esteemed citizen and at present mayor of this city, suffered a slight stroke of paralysis last night, which deprived him of the power of speech. Otherwise his physical condition seems to be good, and his friends, which means everybody in Rockdale, feel hopeful that he may fully recover in a short time. His energy and personal appearance do not indicate his age, which is 74, and but for that fact no serious apprehension would be felt. Houston Post, January 21, 1906
