Richard Harmon Drew, Sr., was a fourth generation judge and a Democratic state representative who was descended from pioneer families of Webster Parish in North Louisiana. The first Drew in the area, Newett Drew, established a grist mill on Dorcheat Bayou in 1818 in what became the former community of Overton, subsequently obliterated by yellow fever. Drew's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all held judicial positions in either the city of Minden, or Webster and surrounding parishes. His son, Richard Harmon Drew, Jr., of Minden is currently serving his second 10-year term on the Louisiana Second Circuit Court of Appeal, based in Shreveport.
