More on John Preston Sheffey

A reader writes:

"You may be interested in knowing that John Preston Sheffey served 8 years (1895-1903) as judge of what is now the Circuit Court of Washington County and Smyth County. You will find his portrait hanging in the courtroom for the Circuit Court of Washington County. I also understand his life experiences included being an Emory & Henry graduate, a prisoner of war, and a member of the General Assembly of Virginia."
