Series II. Legal Practice, 1699-1850 (mostly 1800-1850)

This series, dating from 1699 to 1850, with the bulk of the material dating from 1800 to 1850, relates to Garret D. Wall's legal practice. Wall studied law with Jonathan Rhea (his future father-in-law) before becoming licensed as an attorney in 1804 and as a counselor in 1807.

Researchers interested Rhea's or Wall's legal work should consult the Jonathan Rhea Legal Papers, 1774-1892 (C0521), the contents of which are extensively linked with this collection.
