"ELIJAH G. SEBREE, JR., lawyer, and Attorney for Christian County, is a native of Todd County, Ky., where he was born April 30, 1857. He is a son of Elijah G. Sebree, a prominent planter of that county, and was, therefore, reared under the influence of farm life and meantime had the advantages of a good private school. When sixteen years old he entered Bethany College of West Virginia, from which he graduated in 1877. Soon after he engaged in clerical work in the office of the Clerk of Henderson County, Ky., in connection with which he pursued the study of law. He entered the Law Department of the Louisville University, in October, 1878, graduated from that institution and was admitted to practice in March, 1879. He immediately began the practice of the law in Hopkinsville, and has been successful in establishing a good practice. In August, 1882, he was elected to the office of County Attorney, the responsibility of which he discharges with ability and general acceptance. Though a young man, he displays unusual talent, wielding a marked influence politically, which is enjoyed by the Republican party. Mr. Sebree was married in Henderson, Henderson County, Ky., October 5, 1881, to Miss Maraguerite Banks, daughter of David Banks of Henderson, where she was born in 1862. They have one son named Elijah G. Sebree." - County of Christian, Kentucky : Historical and Biographical, 1884
