was born near Lexington,
13, 1862, the son of Henry
Lassiter and Eliza Lassiter. His
father was a native of North Carolina,

Tennessee. He was graduated from
Cumberland University, Lebanon,
Tennessee in 1881. In 1885 he located
in Fort Worth, Texas, at which
place he has been engaged in the
practice of law ever since. The Board
of Trade complimented him with its
presidency in 1911, and his term
was noted for the progress the city
made. Upon his retirement, a banquet
was tendered him by the citizenship,
at which a handsome testimonial
was presented. In the early
90's he served two terms as city
alderman. At the present time he
is General Attorney of The Chicago,
Rock Island & Gulf Railway company
and of The Trinity & Brazos
Valley Railway company, and president
of the Fort Worth Life Insurance
company. He married Miss
Elizabeth Davis in Fort Worth July
9th, 1890. Two children have been
born, Helen Davis Lassiter, age 21,
and Henry Ruth Lassiter, age 18.
"Fishing for bass" is his second
love and main hobby. His interest
in the advancement of Fort Worth
has not decreased since his retirement
as head of the commercial
body, and he was one of the most
active spirits in securing the Denton
interurban. He served also as one
of the Advisory Committee on construction
of Lake Worth and the
city's water supply, and was one of
the committee that obtained a rightof-way
for the Cleburne interurban.
