John C. Main --1897
[JOHN CALHOUN MAIN]
J. C. Main, though only 29 years old, was county judge
when the special edition of 1897 was published. He was a
Kentuckian by birth, came to Texas in 1885, and commenced the practice of
law in Hamilton in 1892. He was elected County Judge in 1894 and
re-elected in 1896. To quote from the old paper:
"Judge Main is a smooth, fluent speaker, a logical
debater, and an earnest, conscientious, painstaking officer. He stands as
a fair representative of what can be done by a young man of fair, natural
ability, by close study and earnest and patient attention to
John Mainís widow still lives here (1938) and his son,
Tom Main, who is also a lawyer, lives in Tyler.
