HISTORY

Antone Prince became sheriff in June of 1936, very shortly after Sheriff John Cottam died. The Washington
County News
, at that time a weekly publication, carried news of the new sheriff in their edition of June 25, 1936.

Sheriff Prince was defeated by Roy Renouf in the election on November 2, 1954 and thus was out of office by
1955 after 18 years of service.
