Judge of Probate
The Montgomery County Probate Judgeship was created in 1850 as an elected position with a term of six years.
Originally the duties of the Probate Judge were administrative duties and responsibilities relating to the control of roads, ferries, bridges, and the management of public buildings. The Probate Judge was also responsible for custody of land records and protected chattels by registration of brands. The first Judge of Probate for Montgomery County was David Campbell who was in office from 1850-1875. Judge Campbell previously served as Probate Judge in 1838 when the office was still a part of the county court system.
The current and 14th Judge of Probate for Montgomery County is Reese McKinney, Jr. He became Probate Judge in March 1998 and was elected to a full six year term in November 2000.
