|Dr. Thomas Jefferson Bouldin|
|He made $100 a month for his County Position-1917|
He was born in 1879 in Alabama (on FindAGrave it says he was born in Warren County Tennessee - but everywhere else I have found it lists Alabama as his birthplace.)
As I searched the Census records and historical St. Johns newspapers - I found that he was in the St. Johns area for years (He is listed on the 1910, 1920, and 1930 Census in St. Johns). As far as I can find he had at least 4 children, 3 sons and a daughter. I do know that by 1930 he was divorced (listed on the 1930 Apache County Census for St. Johns that way) but had his 3 sons who were by then in there 20s living with him. He died in 1939 and is buried in the St. Johns Westside Cemetery.

I will continue to look for more information on him, as my curiosity is definitely aroused!!

I just had to include this little blurb that I found in one of the historic newspaper on the Arizona Digital Newspaper Program website - The Apache County Herald 10 May 1919:
Wow how times have changed!
