He was elected justice of the peace over his opponents by a handsome majority in 1882.

    She married John Washington Aldridge/Freeman, 11 Dec 1884, in Decatur Co., TN. Born, 15 Feb 1864, in Henderson Co., TN. Died, 18 Jul 1941, in Middleburg, Henderson Co., TN. Burial in Judson Cem., Henderson Co., TN. Melissa Aldridge of Darden writes: "My great grandfather John Washington Freeman/Aldridge has caused confusion to many researchers, including myself. John actually went by both last names, Freeman and Aldridge. John was born on February 15, 1864, to Mary Jane Freeman Aldridge. John's father, according to his death certificate was John Aldridge. However, Mary's 1916 obituary in the Lexington Progress says that she lost her first husband Thomas Eldridge by death. Our family only knew that John's father was an Aldridge and that he fought and died in the Civil War, around the time of John's birth. So far, I have been unsuccessful in finding any matching military records for my Aldridge great great grandfather. "After her husband's death, Mary Jane moved into the Jesse Moody household to take care of Jesse's ailing wife Jemina. Even before Jemina's death, Mary had children by Jesse. They were all referred to as Freeman's until Jemina died, and Jesse and Mary married. According to one older relative, Mary's neighbors had known her longer as a Freeman and had hardly known her Aldridge husband, so they called her and her children by the Freeman name. "On December 11, 1884, John (using the last name Freeman) married Martha Jane Rogers in Decatur County, TN. They moved to Fannin County, TX, within a few years, but by 1900 John and family were living in Decatur County, TN. They were all listed with the last name Aldridge in the 1900 census. However, we know that most of the children (even ones born after 1900) continued to use the Freeman name. John and Martha separated sometime before 1918. At that time, Martha and most of their children were living in Fannin County, TX, while John was living here with his daughter Viola and son-in-law Hulis Hays. Martha died the following year from the flu epidemic and is buried in Fannin County. "On August 9, 1922, John married Ada Florence Powers (Martha's cousin) in

    Henderson County, TN. He married under the name of Aldridge. I was told by an older relative that he had changed his name legally by then but that the record was lost when the court house burned. In 1924, John and AdaAs first son died at birth. He is buried in an unmarked grave at Judson Cemetery. Their next child was born in 1925; this was my grandfather John Wesley Aldridge. John Washington Freeman / Aldridge died on July 18, 1941, at his home in Middleburg from lip cancer and was buried at Judson Cemetery." Children:

    She married John Washington Aldridge/Freeman, 9 Aug 1922, in Henderson Co., TN. Born, 15 Feb 1864, in Henderson Co., TN. Died, 18 Jul 1941, in Middleburg, Henderson Co., TN. Burial in Judson Cem., Henderson Co., TN. Melissa Aldridge of Darden writes: "My great grandfather John Washington Freeman/Aldridge has caused confusion to many researchers, including myself. John actually went by both last names, Freeman and Aldridge. John was born on February 15, 1864, to Mary Jane Freeman Aldridge. John's father, according to his death certificate was John Aldridge. However, Mary's 1916 obituary in the Lexington Progress says that she lost her first husband Thomas Eldridge by death. Our family only knew that John's father was an Aldridge and that he fought and died in the Civil War, around the time of John's birth. So far, I have been unsuccessful in finding any matching military records for my Aldridge great great grandfather. "After her husband's death, Mary Jane moved into the Jesse Moody household to take care of Jesse's ailing wife Jemina. Even before Jemina's death, Mary had children by Jesse. They were all referred to as Freeman's until Jemina died, and Jesse and Mary married. According to one older relative, Mary's neighbors had known her longer as a Freeman and had hardly known her Aldridge husband, so they called her and her children by the Freeman name. "On December 11, 1884, John (using the last name Freeman) married Martha Jane Rogers in Decatur County, TN. They moved to Fannin County, TX, within a few years, but by 1900 John and family were living in Decatur County, TN. They were all listed with the last name Aldridge in the 1900 census. However, we know that most of the children (even ones born after 1900) continued to use the Freeman name. John and Martha separated sometime before 1918. At that time, Martha and most of their children were living in Fannin County, TX, while John was living here with his daughter Viola and son-in-law Hulis Hays. Martha died the following year from the flu epidemic and is buried in Fannin County. "On August 9, 1922, John married Ada Florence Powers (Martha's cousin) in

    Henderson County, TN. He married under the name of Aldridge. I was told by an older relative that he had changed his name legally by then but that the record was lost when the court house burned. In 1924, John and AdaAs first son died at birth. He is buried in an unmarked grave at Judson Cemetery. Their next child was born in 1925; this was my grandfather John Wesley Aldridge. John Washington Freeman / Aldridge died on July 18, 1941, at his home in Middleburg from lip cancer and was buried at Judson Cemetery." Children:

    1. Infant[7] Aldridge. Born, 1924. Died, 1924.
    2. John Wesley Aldridge.

Zion Cem., Decatur Co., TN. Resided: 1991, in Crawford Com., Decatur Co., TN. Census: 1920, in Decatur Co., TN. Occupation: Farmer. The following appeared in "The News Leader," Parsons, Tennessee, on January 16, 1991: "When Jess Lomax was about 50-years-old, his family was so worried about his health, they thought he was goint to die. "'He would pass out when he was working in the field,' recalled Mr. lomax's son Willie. 'We really didn't think he would live very long.' "Mr. Lomax certainly proved everyone wrong because Monday [January 14, 1991] he celebrated his 102 birthday. There was a party that included a big cake decorated with bright red roses. "The party was at Alvis and Melvie Lomax's home in the Crawford Community near Decaturville, where Mr. Lomax lives. "Guests included nurses and aides from Parsons Home Health Care. They brought food, gifts, and warm birthday greetings because Mr. Lomax is their oldest patient. "'When someone lives to be 102, they deserve a party,' noted Janice Wyatt, PHHC registered nurse. "Wyatt says for Mr. Lomax's age, he is in really excellent health. Health problems include poor circulation in his legs, high blood pressure and a little arthritis. "Mr. Lomax says he can't tell that being 102 causes a lot of daily problems, except for it being a little harder to get out of a chair. "'Sometimes it takes me a try or two before I can get up and then I have to stand still for a minute before I can walk.' "What kind of advice does Mr. Lomax have for people wanting to live long enough to become a centurian [centenarian]? "'I got none 'cause I'm not old,' asserted Mr. Lomax with a broad smile and eyes twinkling with Mischief. "Mr. Alvis says he and his father are closer today than when he was a young boy. "'Pappy is more like our friend now,' explained Mr. Alvis, who is 73-years-old. Mr. Willie is 77-years-old. "Mr. Lomax has always been a storyteller. 'When he was young he did the talking and everyone else listened when he started telling about the good old days,' said Mr. Alvis. "Since he was born in 1889, Mr. Lomax has seen the world change from riding horses and mules to space travel. He loves to tell about the first car he ever saw. Mr. Lomax and a friend were riding their mules to town and while they had stopped at Brooksie Branch to let the mules get a drink of water, a car drove by. "'It scared the mules to death,' reminisced Mr. Lomax. 'Dr. Rogers had the first car.' "He remembers getting electricity in his home and the first telephone. 'You used to have to talk to the operator to get anybody,' explained Mr. Lomax. "Mr. Lomax was born in the Crawford community, not far from where he lives today. "His wife, the former Clara Williams, died last year. Mr. Lomax family includes 3 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren. "Mr. Willie and Mr. Alvis say their father always worked hard. 'We think the Lord has really blessed our family,' added Mr. Willie. "Mr. Lomax says he doesn't have a recipe to tell people how to live over 100 years. "'You just do it,' proclaimed Mr. Lomax. 'I've had a pretty good time doing it, too.'" Children:

    1. Willie[7] Lomax. Born, circa 1913. Census: 1920, in Decatur Co., TN. He married Hazel Pratt, 24 Nov 1934, in Decatur Co., TN.
    2. Alvis Lomax.
