Bath, Abraham E., cashier of the Merchants' & Farmers' bank of Natchitoches, La., was born at Natchitoches, March 7, 1878; son of Hyman and Emily (May) Bath. In early manhood Hyman Bath emigrated from Germany to Louisiana and established himself in Natchitoches as a merchant. His wife, a native of Louisiana, is still living, but Mr. Bath died when about 63 years of age. The subject of this biography was educated in public primary and grammar schools of his native town, and completed his studies at the Louisiana State Normal School, Natchitoches, graduating in 1898. After teaching school for 5 years, Mr. Bath was elected, in 1906, superintendent of the parish schools. He held that position during 7 years, when he resigned to accept the cashiership of the Merchants & Farmers' bank, which was organized in 1913, with a capital of $50,000, to do a general banking business. Judge W. T. Cunningham is president of the bank, Jeff Deblieux, first vice president, and Abraham E. Bath, cashier. In the preliminary work of launching the bank, Mr. Bath took a very active part, and he is proud of the distinction of having been chosen to fill the responsible position he now holds in the prosperous financial institution created and conducted by home capital and prominent citizens of Natchitoches. In Masonic circles, Mr. Bath is affiliated with the Royal Arch chapter. His marriage to Miss Ethel Smith, a native of Natchitoches, daughter of S. J. and Sarah (Reynolds) Smith, was solemnized in 1907. Mrs. Bath was reared and educated in her native town. One son, Joseph Reynolds Bath, has come to bless the home.
