Itawamba County Officials Circa 1884

The above group portrait of Itwamba County's elected officials was photographed at the front entrance to the Itawamba County courthouse around 1884. The group probably included five county supervisors (front row), five justices of the peace, five constables, a clerk of the chancery court, clerk of the circuit court, county surveyor, county ranger and sheriff and deputies.

Bob, how wonderful! Imagine my surprise when I visited your website after several weeks' absence and found this photo. I believe that my great-great-great grandfather William M. Evans is on the front row, second from the right. Although I can't be sure, there is a strong resemblance to a photograph I have of his son, John Thomas Evans. I have no photo of William, so this one is a real treat. Thanks for posting it!
