Antone B. Prince





Antone Benjamin Prince was born in New Harmony on November 14, 1896.

He was Deputy County Extension Agent for the federal government.

Antone became sheriff in June 1936, very shortly after Sheriff John Cottam died. The Washington County News, at the time a weekly publication, carried news of the new sheriff in their edition of June 25, 1936. He was defeated in the election on November 2, 1954 and thus was out of office by 1955.

    St. George, Utah

    Telephone ORchard 3-3283     in the 1961 telephone book
    Telephone 673-3283                 in the 1972 telephone book

Sheriff Prince was elected Secretary-Treasurer of the Utah State Association of County Officials in 1951. Then in 1952, he was elected Vice President and in 1953, President.

Prince died in St. George on April 17, 1977. He is buried in Plot C-29-26-6 of the St. George City Cemetery.
