on the life of a county which
can never be eradicated no mat
ter what comes to pass. Their
its part in the making , of the
county ana the . business and
the things that are. We can
' trace back to their sources and
their source is found to be
that person and what he h a'
done, in tne last thirty years
or more the bne of -who We
of town and cunty and every
one in the county, knows o
him. Far back when Madison
was not as fr along in every
thing as it is now, he served . as
Sheriff of the county in a- time
when tne county had a name
not so good as at present. He-
served well and still the' stan
dard laid is being held up. Then
as Clerk of the Superior Court
he was for many years the lea
ding figure in the county court
and'the office trained in that
time many who since then have
- served in the same capacity and
there have been many who
wr rifilnpHI hv his rrtnrtAsv
After 12 years in this position
he retired from the county af
fairs and went in as President
of one of th banks and during
his administration the bank for
ged ahead. As president of the
Light company and other things
.he wasla. teadeA ljsj
.Butitwas not" business . that
held him alone but all this tiirieJ
or for many years he served as
a member of the District School
Committee and has been presi
dent of this committee. Two or
three buildings have been erect
ed and the school has been ad
vanced to a standard. High
School. The teachers and the
parents have always felt that
in him they have one who cares
for thjeir interests:
Then also he has been most
interested in the church of
which he is a member and thru
many years was one of the
leading figures , in the church
giving of time and money., for
the upbuilding of his own but
liberal' toward all. ' ' ';
' Thru many years he has been
the nroDrietor and backer of t.h.
County paper: which has gone
out for more than 15 years into
the homes of the people of - the
. county and given t h e m the
news ana tneq tororm. tne op
inions of the people. The' News
Record ' thru' his ' agency has
been enabled to live.
i, When we think of. the many
ways that he has . touched the
life of Madison as County Of
ficer in Sheriffs office, Clerks of
fice, as business man in the
bank and in other corporations,
In the school, in the church, in
thciodgc, and thru the News
paper, there perhaps is no one
in the County who has done
more to make Madiafon what it
is than James II White.
