County Judges
1819-1909

Until the adoption of township organization, the presiding officer of the Board of County Commissioners was the County Judge or Probate Justice and this position was filled about twenty-five years by Judge Satterfield, who was figured so extensively in the management of Jefferson County affairs. After Satterfield the Board of Commissioners passed out, and the county judgeship stood on its own merits, Jared Foster being elected County Judge, and those succeeding him were Judges C. A. Keller, W. B. Anderson, William T. Pace, Robert M. Farthing, J. D. Norris, Con. Schul and A. D. Webb
