      Dr. J. C. Beauchamp

      Prominent in state and county politics and skilled in the science of medicine and surgery, is Dr. J. C. Beauchamp, of Williamson, Pike county. He was born in Troup county, Ga., Oct 23, 1851, and is the son of W. W. and Sarah E.(Davis) Beauchamp, the father being a well-known citizen and farmer, and for years was justice of the peace. Dr. J. C. Beauchamp was educated in common schools of Meriwether county and came to Pike county in 1861. He was a prominent teacher in the county for many years and then was graduated from the Southern Medical College, Atlanta, winning the gold medal in clinical and operative surgery in a class of thirty-seven. The doctor is active in politics, being an influential democrat; has been chairman of the democratic
      county committee, and represented the county in the general assembly in 1883-84. In the latter capacity he exhibited excellent qualifications for a lawmaker and did valuable work on several important committees. Dr. Beauchamp is an
      enthusiast in the cause of education, and believes in liberal provision for the intellectual training of the country's youth. His zeal led the people of his county to elect him to the board of education of his county, of which he is now president. Dr. Beauchamp was too young to enter the Confederate service, yet when the Veterans' association of Pike county was organzied his well-known sentiments of honor and reverence for those who wore the grey caused him to be placed on the committee on history. He is also interested in mercantile business in Williamson, which he has conducted with good business judgement. He is a member of the Methodist church and is one of Williamson's citizens who is respected by everybody. Dr. Beauchamp was married in 1871 to Ella Gregg, of Pike county, by whom he had seven children: Myrtie, Choghan, Eula, Walter, Rosa, Ruby, and Paul. The oldest two daughters are graduates of La Grange
      Female college and are now teachers in the Williamson high school.
