"I was born on a farm in Gordan County, Georgia, June 15th, 1852, and came to Bartow County with my parents when a small boy, and raised on the farm, going to the country schools every summer after crops were "laid by." The war was coming on, my chances for a classical education were cut off, and after the war I completed my education in the high schools of the county. I was admitted to the bar in 1874, and taught school and practiced law in the country, as best I could, until 1880, when I came yo Cartersville, my county town, continuing the practice of law, and editing the Cartersville Express, the official paper of the county, during that year. I was married to Miss Florida Lillian Conyers December 22, 1880. We have had ten children, four of whome have died in infancy. I was elected to the Legislture in 1882, and again in 1884. Continuing the practice of the law, I was elected Solicitor - General of the Cherokee Circut in 1888, and again in 1892. In 1896 I was elected Judge of the same Circuit, which office I still hold, having been re-elected in 1900 and in 1904.

" I have been unable to acquire much of this worlds goods, but have the conciousness of having done my duty, as best I could. both to my family and to the public. I am an elder in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. and have tried to live a blameless, Christian life, but have not succeeded to my satisfaction. My son's commission in the Navy bears date April 6, 1903. Sincw then he has been twice promoted, and now ranks as Lieutenant, senoir grade"
