    Wm. Sneller presented Mr. and Mrs. Frank Parr with a hand made paring knife as a wedding present. The handle was made of alternate white and red colored wood and the blade shaped from an extra quality steel. Several other families here, including our own, have one made by Mr. Sneller and can attest to the usefulness and lasting quality of the knives.
