    Jason Ellis Bateman, the subject of this sketch, who died Saturday afternoon, April 27, was born February 10, 1869, just a few miles north of Franklinton. In early manhood he was converted and joined the old Mile Branch Baptist church and was one of the leaders int he church as well as other activities of the community life. Mr. Bateman was married to Miss Lena Warren Ball, December 22, 1892. There were born to this union 10 children two of whom have gone on before him, together with the good wife who meant so much to his success as well as to the betterment of the whole community. Mr. Bateman served his God and his country well. He was loyal to his church and pastor and supported them with his presence when health permitted. After his health failed he was still concerned about the welfare of the cause and of the church and pastor. He was also an active and faithful Mason. In the service of his country, he was Justice of the Peace; Sheriff, serving in this office 8 years; and Mayor of the town for several terms. Concerning his service in the Sheriff's office, we quote from a parish weekly, a statement issued on Thursday after he retired from the office: "Perhaps never in the history of Washington Parish has a Sheriff undergone as much work and through as many trying times as Sheriff Bateman. Not once in the eight years did he hesitate on doing his duty and he is retiring from office with as many or more friends than when he assumed his duties---something that seldom happens to a peace officer." Surviving children are Mrs. Joel Magee, Robert Bateman, Mary and Carol Bateman, Franklinton, Silton Bateman, Bogalusa, Prof. Hugh Bateman, Ferriday; Mrs. Josie Mayeaux, New Orleans, and Mrs. J. R. Davis of Parkersburg, W. Va., besides six grandchildren and the following brothers and sisters, Prof. J. W. Bateman of Baton Rouge; W. M. Bateman, Mrs. E. A. Burris, Mrs. A.G. Magee, Sr., and Mrs. Dell Foil, all of Franklinton. Funeral services held at the local Baptist church at 3:00 p.m., Sunday, were conducted by his pastor, REv. J. H. Smith, assisted by Revs. Estes, McLean, Sweeney and Whittington. Interment was at Ellis cemetery with the concluding rites of the Masonic and Eastern Star organizations---His Pastor.
