HARRY F. WILLOUGHBY, lawyer, Attorney for Todd County, was born in 1852, in Montgomery County, Tenn. His parents were Frank and Mariah (Hackney) Willoughby, who removed to Todd County, while Harry F. was a small boy. His father was a member of the Baptist Church, by occupation a farmer, and died in this county in 1861. His widow was subsequently married to Mr. W. T. Kennedy, who died in 1877. She is still living and now a resident of the town of Elkton. Harry F. was educated in Todd County, read law in the office of S. W. Kennedy, and was admitted to practice in 1874. From that time until 1876, he was the editor and proprietor of the Elkton Witness; later, in connection with Maj. Bristow, he conducted the Elkton Register, but sold his interest in this paper to his partner in 1879. He was elected to the office of County Attorney in 1882, and was serving the county with credit to himself at the time of his death in 1844. He was a member of the I. 0. 0. F. and of the A. F. & A.
