  • 1926 - Alexander County Board of Commissioner Alexander County, NC (Democrat). (McNeely).
  • A conservative Democrat he voted the straight party ticket until 1960. Being a good Baptist, he feared that if John F. Kennedy was elected President the Pope might control the White House.
  • Donated the land to build Oxford Memorial Baptist Church, (McNeely).
  • Served on the Board of Deacons, Antioch Baptist Church.
  • Dairy farmer. Owned a prize-winning Biltmore Dairy herd on Duck Creek.
  • As his grandson between the ages of 12 and 16, I spent two months of my summer vacation working on Papaw's farm. I started my day by getting up at five am driving the tractor to the bottom and herding the cows to the milk house. During these four years, I earned the first year of my college tuition. On the farm, gained an appreciation for the value of work and I learned the true meaning of family values. (Hugh Barnes)

  • The granddaughter of Papaw's sister is a skilled genealogist. Her father contends that Hugh Oxford was once the owner of the Alexander Railroad aka the June Bug Line. Documentation will be forthcoming.
  • Seven children: Jeff Elija, Russell Woodrow, Selma Estelle, Annalene, Christine Blair, Haskel Bryan (Bryner).
