Jules Edgar Guinotte

Jules Edgar Guinotte was born on the old Guinotte homestead at Fourth Street and Troost Avenue in this city in August, 1855.  His parents were among the earliest settlers of this section of the country, and all his life has been passed in this city.  His education was secured at the local common and high schools.  After leaving them he went to St. Louis University to take a classical course.

    On his return here he engaged in clerical work for a while, but determined on law as a profession.  He entered the law office of Tichener & Warner, and after some years of study was admitted to the bar.  He then engaged in general practice, and was busy with the duties of his practice until nominated and elected Probate Judge by the Democratic party in 1886.  This position he has since held, being returned each four years with increased majorities.  He was renominated again in the spring of 1902, and re-elected.

     Probably no man in the community is better fitted for the arduous responsibilities of the place than Judge Guinotte, for temperamentally he is gifted with the generous sympathy that makes for ideal supervision over the affairs of the widow and orphan, and the  honesty and force of character to carry out the plans best suited to each circumstance.

     Judge Guinotte married in 1883 the only daughter of the late Dr. John K. Stark.
