Does anyone know any information about a snake handling article that ran in Life Magazine. Some of my elder relatives have stated that my great-great grandmother Nancy Kleinick was photographed and there was a story about her in an issue. I would appreciate any help.
thanks

I also had grandparents that were snake handlers. I am looking for an issue in Life also. I found a newspaper article that said Life Magazine sent a photographer to Durham NC for a service that was held on October 15-17 1948 at the Tabernacle in downtown Durham. Hope this is a start for you. If I find this article I will post back here.
God Bless

I did locate one Life Magazine- the July 3, 1944 issue, pages 59 -62. It is entitled "Holiness Faith Healers- Virginia Mountaineers Handle Snakes to Prove Their Piety"
However, I swear I also remember seeing an issue while I was growing up, which would be sometime between about 1956 to 1966.
Anyway, used Life magazines can usually be purchased on ebay for a pretty reasonable price

Faith, I have been attending different churches that handle serpents for around 11 years or so, and I remember one person who mentioned your great-great grandmother, Nancy Kleinick. Do you know anything about when she handled serpents or what the years were when she handled? I've been trying to find out when serpent handling first began. Most people say around 1910, but I believe it started much earlier than that. It may be that your great-great grandmother handled much earlier than that. Thanks for any information you might be able to offer. Paul

I, too am looking for the article. Nancy Kleinick is my great-grandmother. My father is Elmer Johnson; he's the son of Verbina Kleinick Johnson. I am his daughter, Connie (Johnson) Kesselring. Let me know what you have found.
Thank you.

Hello,
Nancy Kleinick is my great-grandmother. I remember the article in Life Magazine when I was very young--around 5 or 6. I was born in 1949. Let me know if and how you found the article. I'd love to see her picture and keep the magazine. Thank you.

Connie:

Good to hear from you. I think a friend has some information about the life magazine article. Give me a few days to touch base with him and I'll get back with you. Meanwhile, do you know anything about when your grandmother handled? Maybe the year?
