Comanche County Elected Officials 1940s

I’ve probably been asked at least a hundred times to “write something” about the Comanche  courthouse, and I’m going to…just as soon as I have time. And yes, even I am tired of my excuse!  I suppose it is a subject that I want to be sure I give justice to, especially since all of the beautiful work around the courthouse has taken place. The beautiful old monstrosity actually has quite a history, and someday in the not too distant future, we are going to talk about it.

It is the photo pictured here that actually has me thinking about the courthouse today. It was taken in the 1940s and has me wondering if these men were, in fact, the elected officials who were serving at the time the work on the courthouse was completed. If you happen to have that answer, I would really appreciate your sharing it with us. We would also be very happy for you to identify those who are not identified. Thanks!

About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.
