Among the members of the Ballard county bar is William Thomas White,
who is practicing in Wickliffe, where he has gained a distintively
representative clientage. Legal interests are never entrusted to those
whose abilities are questionable. When one has property or civil rights at
stake it is greatly to be desired that they should be placed in the hands
of those who have comprehensive knowledge of the law and are capable of
conducting litigated interests with the best results for their clients, and
in criminal cases where the balance of justice is to be maintained it is
also necessary that the man concerned in the control of a cause should be
proficient and well versed in that especial department of jurisprudence.
After careful preparation William Thomas White took his place at the bar,
and by earnest study, indefatigable labor and mastery of the questions with
which he has become connected has won for himself an enviable place among
the practitioners of this district.
William Thomas White was born at Blandville, Kentucky, on the 28th of
June, 1861, and is a son of James D. and Mary Ellen (Coil) White. He was
reared in his native city and there acquired his preliminary education,
which was supplemented by study in Paducah, in Clinton and in Lexington.
When about twenty years of age he took up the study of law with G.W.
Reeves, of Paducah as his preceptor, and in 1885 he was admitted to the bar
at Wickliffe. He then located in Blandville, where he continued in
practice until 1889, and during the first year was associated with his
father as a member of the firm of J.D. White & Son. In 1889 he came to
Wickliffe, where he has since lived, and if a large patronage is any
criterion of success Mr. White has certainly entered upon a successful
professional career.
On the 27th of November, 1889, was celebrated the marriage of Mr.
White and Miss Naomi Rich, a daughter of LaFayette Rich and a granddaughter
of Jacob Corbett, the first clerk of the county court of Ballard county.
To Mr. and Mrs. White have been born six children. In addition to his home
in Wickliffe, Mr. White owns and operates a farm near the city. Socially
he is connected with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and is a Master
Mason. In politics he is a Democrat. He has devoted considerable time to
reading and study, and is thoroughly posted on current topics and events.
