C. R. (TIGE) MAIN 

 

Automobile Dealer

 

C. R. (Tige) Main was born in Bosque County on a farm between Iredell and Walnut Springs in 1893. He is the son of A. M. C. Main and the late Sarah Main. He came to Hamilton in 1907 and started railroading, ad the time attending to two pumps, making the trip from one to the other in a small gasoline car on the railroad track. In 1909 he started braking, and after two years on the Cotton Belt, he followed railroad work in other sections. He returned to the Cotton Belt in 1916 and has been with them ever since. Although he established an automobile business in Hamilton in 1933, he has never lost his seniority on the railroad and goes out often enough to hold it.

Mr. Main is a member of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen, I. O. O. F. And K. P. Lodges. [International Order of Odd Fellows and Knights of Phythias]

He was married to Miss Celest Jones, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emery E. Jones, of Stephenville, on August 19, 1918. Mrs. Main is a graduate of Stephenville High and attended John Tarleton College. They have one son, C. R. Jr., who is now 16 years of age.
