			OCCUPATION: Prominent lawyer-commonwealth attorney for 12 th District. 1880 Carter Co. KY census age 23 b. KY-Teacher- listed with widowed mother.
			The following biography of James B. Wilhoit appeared in "A History of Ky. and Kentuckians" by E. Polk Johnson, Volume II, Page 764-765,  published 1912 by The 
    			Lewis Publishing Co., Chicago--New York. 
			"James B. Wilhoit, who is the present able incumbent of the office of commonwealth attorney for the Twentieth judicial district of Ky., is a man of prominence in 
  			legal and political affairs in the Blue Grass state, where he has served in various public offices of trust, in all of which he has acquitted himself with honor and     
   			distinction.  He was born in Carter Co., Ky., on the 6th of March, 1857, and is a son of Alfred A. Wilhoit and Matilda Boggs, the former of whom was born and reared    
  			in Bath County and the latter of whom is a native of 
			Virginia, whence she accompanied her parents to Carter Co., Ky., when a mere child. John Wilhoit, grandfather of him whose name initiates this review, was born in 
    			Germany and was one of four brothers who settled in Virginia in an early day.  He was one of the pioneer settlers in Bath Co., this state, and he was identified with 
  			agricultural pursuits during the greater part of his active business career.  Alfred A. Wilhoit, father of James B., of this review, was a farmer by vocation and after his    
   			marriage located on a farm in Carter Co., where 	he passed the residue of his life, his death occurring in August 1873, at the age of fifty-six years.  His widow survives    
  			him, and now maintains her home in Carter County.  As previously stated, Mrs. Wilhoit was a child at the time of her parents' removal to Ky., this event having 
   			occurred in the early '20s.  She became the mother of twelve children, five of whom are 	living.      James B. Wilhoit was the tenth in order of birth of the twelve 
  			children referred to above and he was reared to the sturdy discipline of the home farm in Carter Co., to whose common schools he is indebted for his preliminary 
  			educational training, later supplementing this by a course of study in the Ky. Normal College, at Carlisle, and after its completion he taught school in his native and 
 			adjoining counties for a period of twelve years.  In the meantime he had devoted his spare time to the study of law, being admitted to the bar in Greenup 	County 
  			in 1880.  He initiated his legal practice at Willard, this state, and after a three-years' residence there located at Grayson, Carter Co., in which latter place he 
 			maintained his home for the ensuing fifteen years.  In 1898, he was appointed supervisor of forestry by President McKinley and in connection with the duties of this 
  			office he passed two years in New Mexico. In January, 1900, he located at Greenup, Ky., where he resumed the practice of his profession and where he entered into a    
  			partnership alliance with Colonel W. J. Worthington, this firm doing business together until 1902, in October of which year Mr. Wilhoit established his home at 
 			Ashland, where he has built up a large and lucrative clientage and where his success has been on a parity with his well directed efforts.  He is a versatile and skilled 
  			trial lawyer and a well-fortified counselor and has figured prominently in many important cases in both the state and federal courts.         In politics Mr. Wilhoit is 
 			aligned as a stalwart supporter of the cause of the Republican Party and for many years he has been active in party affairs.  While a resident of Carter County he 
 			served nearly five years as county attorney.  In 1896 he was Republican elector, voting three times for President McKinley--in the congressional convention, at the 
 			election which followed and in the electoral college. In 1903 he was Republican candidate for the office of lieutenant governor of Ky. but met with defeat in the 
 			election, which 	followed.  In 1904 he was candidate for elector at large but failed of election.  In 1907 he was chosen commonwealth attorney for the Twentieth 
 			judicial district of Ky., comprising Boyd, Greenup and Lewis Counties, to fill an unexpired term of two years, due to redistricting by the legislature.  In 1909 he was 
 			re-elected to this office for a term of six years.  He is a man of broad learning and great capacity and in all his dealings he is recognized as a man of fair and honorable 
 			methods and as a man of unquestioned integrity.  He is affiliated with  various professional and fraternal organizations of representative character and both he and his 
 			wife are loyal Christian Scientists in their religious faith.      Mr. Wilhoit has been twice married.  He first wedded Miss Callie Boldman, the ceremony being 
 			performed in 1881.  She was a native of Sciota Co., Ohio, and was summoned to the life eternal on the 26th of  February 1894.  She is survived by two sons--James 
 			Leroy resides in Frankfort, Ky., where he is rate clerk of the railway commission; and William E. is a druggist at Maysville, Mason Co., Ky.. After the death of his 
 			first wife, Mr. Wilhoit was united in marriage to Miss Marguerite Osenton, a native of Sciota Co., Ohio, whence she came to Carter Co when young.  No children have been born of this union." 	    Submitted by  Garrett and Sherry Lowe
