w/o John R. Banister

After John Banister's first wife died in 1894, leaving him with four children, he married his second wife, Emma Daugherty. John and Emma would have five children of their own. In 1914 John Banister became sheriff of Coleman County but was struck down by a stroke in 1918. Emma, who had served as John's office deputy, assumed the job of sheriff and, in doing so, became the first female sheriff in the United States. After completing her husband's term, she returned to her farm in Santa Anna.
