J. A. EIDSON  --1897

[JAMES ALLEN EIDSON]

Born in South Carolina, J. A. Eidson came to Hamilton about 1875, according to the 1897 paper.  He practiced law here, and to quote from the 1897 paper: 

"His careful preparation of cases and the unerring accuracy of his judgment soon convinced those who observed his advancement that he was a lawyer of no ordinary ability.  Year by year his reputation as a profound lawyer has increased until the fact that he has been retained in any given case raised a presumption that his client will be successful in the suit.  Mr. Eidson has never been an aspirant for any office, preferring to practice his profession and attend to is large and growing legal business and his landed interests, which are extensive.  He has been repeatedly urged to accept the nomination for the office of the district judge by the democracy on his county, with all probability of being elected, but he has steadily declined."

Mrs. J. A. Eidson is now (1938) living in Hamilton, as are daughter, Miss [Eudora] Mabel, and sons, A. R. [Arthur R., John R. [Russell], and J. A.  Another son, [Barnwell] Rhett lives near Hamilton.
