James Matthew Maxon (1875–1948) was the fourth bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Tennessee, serving in that capacity from 1935 to 1947. He was succeeded by Edmund Pendleton Dandridge (Tennessee IV). Theodore Nott Barth became Coadjutor Bishop, and became Diocesan Bishop (Tennessee VI) upon Bishop Dandridge's death. Bishop Maxon was instrumental in facilitating the merger of Grace Church and St. Luke's Church Memphis, to form Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church in 1940.
