Program on Sheriffs of James County is May 4

Friday, April 18, 2014
The James County Historical Society will meet Sunday, May 4, at 2:30pm in the Ooltewah United Methodist Church in the Sunday School addition.

The program will be presented by Kathy Chastain and its topic will be the sheriffs of James County.

Kathy will have Sheriff Green’s gun and lots of documents to share that concern many of the sheriffs – especially Sheriff Green.  There will also be a James County Sheriff’s vehicle there to look at. (of course we all know that there would not have been a sheriff’s vehicle in real life - this is just for fun).

Kathy asks that any one who has anything to do with (or knows about) the sheriff or the legal system to come prepared to share whatever you may have.

Kathy tried to schedule the meeting at the James County Courthouse but it was not available due to a wedding.
