    Notes 
    • Frank McLemore was a traveling salesman. When he made his rounds,one of  the first customers he called on were Dale and Evon (McLemore) Tisdale, who had a General Store in Zavalla. He would use a mirror in the back of their store to shave before he called on the rest of his customers. He did this because he rose very early each morning, and didn't want to disturb his wife. He loved anything colored blue. He used unusual expressions, such as "Great Garden Seed" and "an elephant's plenty." He was called "Daddy Mac" by grandchildren. Affiliations: Masonic Lodge, Dewitt Clinton Chapter. Baptist Church. Hobbies: Gospel Music, gardening.

      He and his wife served consecutive terms as Postmaster in Jasper County early in the century.
