Addison W. Estes Sabine Parish, Louisiana


Addison W. Estes

Sabine parish 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.
