Section A, Page 5


J. G. STALCUP, a native of Tennessee, came to Winfield, in 1907, when he
was engaged to help organize the Winfield State Bank, the first bank of the
two, and became the first Cashier.

Located in the old Post Office Building, the Winfield State Bank was
situated on the corner of First Avenue and Tenth Street North, and remained
there until it was moved to its present location about 1912.

Beginning as Cashier, Mr. STALCUP entered into community life in Winfield
as well as business. He was charter member of the infield Kiwanis Club and
served in other organization, a list of which were not given. He was
serving as President of the bank at the time of his retirement in November
1949, because of ill health, and members of his family have ably carried on
the banking business since his death. Mr. J. G. STALCUP was the current
President; William S. STALCUP, vice-president; Cline WEEKS, Cashier; and
bookkeepers are Mrs. Johnnie JOHNSON, and Mrs. Pebble Gann BELL. When
organized, the bank was composed of Marion County Stockholders mainly.

Besides W. S. (Bill) BELL in Jacksonville, Florida; J. A. STALCUP,
Superintendent of the Mobile Water Works in Mobile; and two daughters, Miss
Clarissa STALCUP of Quinton, Alabama, who teaches in the Jefferson County
School System; and Mrs. Sarah STALCUP GUIN, wife of Joe Young GUIN of

Mr STALCUP expired shortly after his retirement, with forty-two years of
service in the Winfield State Bank.

Also quite active in civic and social affairs, William is a Kiwanian, a
member of the Winfield Chamber of Commerce serving both officially; and he
is also a member of the Alabama Bankers Association, and his wife, the
former Dot SHOES of Birmingham, is a member of the Garden Club, the Modern
Literary, and Wesleyan Service Guild. Mrs. J. G. STALCUP is a member of the
Studiosis, Association of American Bank Christian Service, an honorary
member of the Winfield Garden Club, and secretary of the Board of Stewards.
All three are active in the Methodist Church of Winfield.
