Justice of the Peace

In 1896, my paternal great-grandfather was sworn in as a Justice of the Peace in Marshall County, Alabama.

John Cabell Breckinridge (JCB)
JORDAN  was 35 years old and the father of 7 children (3 more followed).

Mary Elizabeth Morris was his wife.

This made me wonder who are the justices of the peace in my county.

Magistrate Judge is another name for this position.

Apparently, jury duty also supplied another source of income to this homesteading farmer.

Information gleaned from family booklet The Jordans of Brindlee Mountain.
