J. H. Lamar, who came originally from Calhoun County, served Quitman as circuit clerk for sixteen years--1916 to 1924, and 1928 to 1936. Foregoing this, he engaged in the manufacturing business, having established a plant for making plows, operating the place in connection with a wood-shop and blacksmith-shop. He is a man of the conservative type, modest in his demeanor, and it is doubtful if there was ever a more popular office holder in the county. He was always anxious to serve those who had business to transact under the scope of his department; was a member of the local draft board of Quitman County during the World War. Mr. Lamar selected 702 good men for the service--202 of whom were white and five hundred colored. He was not a candidate for re-election in 1935, and at the close of the year, retired to his home in Lambert.
