President Snow was born under more opportune circumstances than most early leaders of the Church—his family of Mantua, Ohio, having been quite well-to-do. In his youth he attended schools near his home and planned to pursue a military career, a choice that his beloved older sister, Eliza, opposed heartily. Religion played no important role in his early life. When he attended Oberlin College to prepare for his chosen vocation, he noted that although Oberlin was supposed to have the epitome of a fine Protestant atmosphere, it fell far short of his expectations. He said, Â"If there is nothing better than is to be found here in Oberlin College, goodbye to all religions.Â" (3)
