Are you sure that his middle name is Edward? The closest thing I can find is a Charles Everett Snelson who registered for the WWI draft in Chicago, Illinois (1917). He gave his birth date as Feb 6, 1887, born Sligo, Dent County, Missouri. The 1900 census, however, show his birth as Feb 1886.
I didn't find him in 1920, but the 1930 census shows him and his family still in Chicago. They were living in the Barry View Hotel on Barry Avenue and his occupation was painter.
