Addison W. Estes Sabine Parish, Louisiana
Addison W. Estes
has never had a better citizen nor a more faithful public
servant than Mr. Estes. He was born in this parish September 11,
1817. While still a young man he was crippled for life, but for
many years thereafter he followed farming and the saddle maker's
trade. He reared a family of four girls and two boys, three of
whom are still living.
His wife died
in 1902 and he was later married to Miss McDonald, daughter of
Robert McDonald, a pioneer of the parish, and to that union two
children have been born. In July, 1884, Mr, Estes was elected
parish treasurer and has held that position ever since.
In 1892 he was elected clerk of the
Police Jury and remained in that position until the present
year, when he resigned and was succeeded by W. G. Caldwell. The
esteem in which he is held by his fellow citizens is best
exemplified by his continuance in his public position.
