Dubois, Jesse K. (1811-76).

Born in Lawrence County, Illinois, Dubois attended college at Bloomington, Indiana. In 1834 he was elected to the Illinois General Assembly with AL and was re-elected for three more terms. At the first Republican state convention in 1856 he was nominated for state auditor on AL's recommendation and served two terms.
