We Are indebted to the Richmond dispatch for the following Cut Aud sketch of his career a no frs if lit in Rwy. Judge Reu Jamin Thomas Gunter Wab born in Accomac county va., january 18,1881. His parents Joseph and Mahala gut Era were both of Sterling Eastern Shore Stock and judge Benjamin t. Gunter. Strong religious principles being members of the Baptist Church. Joseph Gunter began life As a poor Mao but by patient Well directed Industry he soon acquired a Fine estate. is wife was a granddaughter of Captain William Polk a Soldier of the revolution who resided in Bradford s neck on the Seaside of Accomac. Joseph Gunter died in 1834. Aud his wife survived him Only a few years. They left two children Ben Quinin and his sister Elizabeth who is the wife of Thomas c. Pitt Esq. The present owner of a Only Quot near Onancock once the Home of Henry a. Wise i after the death of their parents the two orphan children West to live in the family of their Kinsman. Cap Tain Samuel Waples who had served in the War of 1812, and whose father had been an officer in the revolution. Here the two children continued to enjoy the Fine training that had been begun at their Home. After attending a neighbourhood school Fortnum her of years they were sent away to school Elizabeth to Baltimore and Benjamin to Richmond College Young Gunter subsequently attended the University of Virginia where lie completed the course of study in Law before he was of Legal age. Shortly after entering University he became desperately homesick and would have returned to his Home on the Eastern Shore but there was no Railroad connection in those Days Between the University and Eastern Virginia and the homesick youth naturally shrank from the thought of making his Way alone Back to Bis native Eastern Shore through a wide stretch of unknown country and across the Chesapeake Bay. Judge Gunter always considered this the turning Point in his career and thanked the kindly fates that threw such obstacles in Bis Way to prevent his return Home at this crucial period of his life. But the determination to succeed in life had been Strong in Young Gutter and Hope of honorable Fame beckoned to him from afar. Returning Home from the University he was admitted to the bar. And soon thereafter was elected common wealth a attorney for Accomac. Among the famous lawyers then practising in the courts of the Eastern Shore were Thomas h. Bayly Henry a. Wise and Myers w. Fisher. Shortly after Young Gunter was elected commonwealths attorney he had to prosecute Tully Lilliston and his Paramour Betsy Simpson for killing Thomas Budd near Accomac courthouse. Henry a. Wise conducted the defence with All Bis ability but the Young commonwealths attorney made such a plucky fight that he won the Case and succeeding in sending Tully Lilliston and the woman to the Penitentiary for a Long period. After the trial was ended Wise was heard to say that there was nothing that could daunt or 9bake the courage of that Young bulldog Gunter who held fast till he accomplished his purpose. This Legal tilt with so famous an advocate As 1�?o Henry a. Wise brought the Young attorney at once into prominence and made his future secure. Soon after coming to the bar be married miss Ellen Fisher a Young 1 Idy of Lovely Christian character. She was the daughter of John Fisher of Northampton and a Niece of Myers w. Fisher who with the late William h. B. Custis represented the Eastern Shore in the secession convention. From this Union sprang seven children five sons and two daughters. An uncompromising As the civil War approached judge Gutter was elected colonel of the Accomac Volunteer troops and took an Active part in the defence of this Section against the invading Federal forces under general Lockwood. was subsequently arrested and confined in fort Mchenry with the late Severn tackle Wallis of Maryland and other Southern sympathizers. After remaining there for some tin. Lie was released on parole and came Back to his Home where he was constantly annoyed by the Federal soldiers who regarded him As an uncompromising rebel. After the War he formed a Law partnership with his life Long Friend John w. Gillott who Hud for Many years been clerk of Accomac county court and who in after years became judge of that county court. They enjoyed a Large and lucrative prac Tice. In 1880, Hon. George t. Garrison judge of the circuit court was elected to Congress from this District and when lie resigned the former position. Governor Holiday appointed judge Gutter to fill the vacancy but when the general Assembly met in the Winter of 1881�?�?T32, the read Juster majority elected Hon. William t. Fitchett. Of Northampton. The term expired in 18s4, Ana the democrats then being in the majority in the general Assembly elected judge Gutter Aud enlarged the circuit by incl Diug in it a number of counties of the Peninsula Between the James and the York. Judge Gunter was re elected four years ago and his career on the Bench has been so just and honorable and Liis decisions so Fain As to win for him the respect of All the attorneys who have practice in his courts. In fact no judge in Virginia has rained a More enviable reputation for just decisions or made More Wirra friends among the attorneys practising in his courts than has judge Gunter. has been especially kind and helpful to the Young and inexperienced attorneys in his circuit who always speak of him in Terras of the warmest Friendship Aud gratitude. A staunch Democrat. Judge Gunter had been from Early youth an uncompromising jeffersonian and jacksonian Democrat he served is chairman of the county committee for Many years and was for some time a member of state Central committee of the democratic party. Up to the time that he was elevated to the Bench he was an Active and aggressive Campaign speaker striking hard blows for his Paity whenever he found an antagonist. Away Back in the Days following the reconstruction Era he met and routed the Republican leaders that invaded this part of Virginia and in the Days of readjusted domination such men As general Mahone Parson Massey and colonel Lamb Felt the weight of his powerful Arm. The democratic party in Virginia never had a truer son or a Raver defender. was a Delegate to the National democratic convention or 1870 that nominated Tilden and Hendricks. In 1880, he was a candidate for the democratic nomination for Congress in this District but his friends finding that the nomination would probably go to a dark horse brought Forward judge George t. Garrison of Accomac and succeeded in giving him the nomination. In 1879 judge Gunter lost his wife and four years later his oldest son. Alfred Gunter a Bachelor of arts of Richmond College and a master of arts of the University of Virginia who upon the retirement of his father from Active practice had formed a Law partnership with the Hon. John w. G. Blackstone now judge or Accomac county court was taken from him by the iosidiou8 disease of consumption. And in the space of a few More years three other sons All Fine Manly Fellows and All highly educated and thoroughly equipped for useful add honorable careers were carried off by the same disease leaving him three children still surviving mrs. John w. Edmonds or Accomac courthouse. Miss Bessie Gunter and Benjamin t. Gunter jr., the present Commonwealth s attorney of Accomac. An advocate of education.

Judge Gunter had Long been a member of the Baptist Church and for May years he served As Moderator of the Accomac Baptist association. Every one who knew him will agree that he was the highest Type of a Christian gentleman. For a full Quarter of a Century he had been a member of Ocean Lodge of masons. At a Willow Bank Quot his Beautiful Home of the Seaside of Accomac where he lived nearly All the Days of his life he dispensed a Graceful and generous hospitality preserving the usages and traditions of the Vir givians of the Olden time. No Man Ever enjoyed to a greater degree the Confidence and esteem of the people among whom he lived. was a kind neighbor and a True Friend and if he did not like a Man he did not try to conceal it. Deceit and hypocrisy found no Lodgment in his honest heart. loved Virginia with All the passionate Devotion of a True son and like the Loyal Eastern Shoreman that he was he loved Best of All the fair and fruitful Peninsula that had always been his Home. When in the coming years my shall recall the names and Virtues of those who have lived on the Eastern Shore in this generation they May Well say of this Model citizen and incorruptible judge what Murk Antony said of the dead Caesar a this was the noblest roman of them All.
