Franklin Snare farm about 1920
From Clair Grove: Originally settled by Isaac Clymer because of the abundance of white oak, which Mr. Clymer used in his business of making barrels (cooper). Later bought by Jackson Beaver. Jackson Beaver sold the place to Frank Snare and his wife Mary Jane (Beaver) Snare who was a niece of Jackson Beaver. The Snare family was raised here and it later became the home of James H. Grove and Flora Mae (Snare) Grove, the youngest daughter of Frank and Mary Jane Snare. The Grove family was raised here till it was bought by the US Army Corps of Engineers for Lake Raystown. Juniata College of Huntingdon, PA now has a lease for a field station. Buildings from left are: smoke house, house, cooper shop, dry house, wood house, sanitary facility (outhouse), wash house, spring house, pig pen, and barn.
