Mini Bios of People of Scots Descent
Fullilove, Samford Christian

Fullilove, Samford Christian, of Shreveport, is superintendent of public safety, and regarded as one of the leaders of the bar of North Louisiana. He was born Jan. 23, 1877, in Caddo parish, the son of Thomas Pope and Elizabeth Jane (Samford) Fullilove. Since the year 1847 the Fullilove family has been established in Caddo Parish, Thomas P. Fullilove and his father, James Greer Fullilove, having emigrated from Georgia to engage in the planting business, in the Liberty Church neighborhood. The paternal grandfather of Samford C. was named John Fullilove, and was a native of Scotland, who came to the United States with a large number of his people to colonize Georgia. Mrs. Fullilove, mother of the subject of this sketch, was a native of the Eastern part of Alabama, daughter of William P. Samford, of Irish descent. Six of the 10 children that composed the family, of which Samford C. Fullilove was the 9th in order of birth, grew to maturity. His education was obtained in the public schools of Caddo parish and at the following institutions of learning: Centenary college, Jackson, La. (graduate, 1896); Columbian, now the George Washington University, Washington City (graduate in law, 1901); Tulane Law School (graduate, 1902); and after receiving his diploma from Tulane Mr. Fullilove returned to Shreveport to practice his profession. The co-partnership of Fullilove & Mills, attorneys, formed in 1902, was dissolved in 1907 when the senior member of the firm was elected city judge, a position he resigned in 1910 to accept his present office of superintendent of public safety, still continuing, however, his practice of law. Mr. Fullilove is knight commander of the Kappa Alpha order, a college fraternity, and is affiliated with the Woodmen of the World. He married, in 1905, Miss Amanda Stringfellow, the daughter of T. L. Stringfellow, of Shreveport. Their family consists of 3 children: Samford C., Jr., Levert S. and Howell H. Fullilove.
