p.505 ALBERT S. MATLOCK
Albert S. Matlock, filling the position of postmaster at Van Buren, was born at Stattler, Crawford County, Arkansas, April 12, 1800, his parents being William and Harriet (Stewart) Matlock. The father removed from Overton County, Tennessee to Arkansas, while Jesse Stewart, the grandfather of Albert S. Matlock in the maternal line, came from Cincinnati, Ohio, and settled about five miles north of the Figure Five post office. Mr. and Mrs. William Matlock became parents of nine children. Of this family E. L. Matlock is now an attorney of Van Buren, while J. D. Matlock is an official of the Arkansas Coffin Company. The family was represented by service in the World War, Fred Matlock and E. L. James, two nephews of Albert S. Matlock, serving with the United States Army during the period of hostility with Germany.
Having acquired a common school education, Albert S. Matlock, in 1904, became a railway mail carrier and through his entire business career has been identified with the mail service. After acting in his original position until 1917, he was appointed a clerk in the Van Buren post office and in 1919 received the appointment to the position of postmaster for the regular four years' term. His previous experience well qualified him for the duties of this position - duties which he discharges with marked promptness, accuracy and fidelity.
In 1904 Mr. Matlock was married to Miss Mina Wood, a daughter of J. C. Wood of Uniontown, Arkansas, and a sister of Dr. T. F. Wood, who was a captain in the medical Corps of the United States Army during the World War, spending a year and half overseas. Mr. and Mrs. Matlock have become parents of seven children: Joseph B., Crystal, Goldie May, Jeanette, Albert, Armstrong and Jack Pershing. The religious faith of the family is that of the Presbyterian church to the teachings of which Mr. & Mrs. Matlock loyally adhere, taking an active interest in all those forces which make for the uplift of the individual and the benefit of the community at large. He cooperates heartily in all matters for the welfare of city and state and the sterling worth of his character has established him high in the esteem of his fellow townsmen.
