Law Office Ledger, 1836-1871
There is very little data to indicate the location of the law office or trials; however, it appears to be in East Tennessee. There are cases involving the State of Tennessee and several of the names (Landon Raygan, William Woodfin, Josiah Parker) appear on the 1830 census for Washington County, Tennessee. Other surnames (Dugger, Click, Huffine) are known to be family names in East Tennessee. A trial on July 13, 1861 involved Thomas and Maranda Ensor and a man and woman with these names appear in the same household in Washington County, Tennessee on the 1860 United States Census.
