Williams from John Andrew Prall and others, 1861-1865, 1861 (bulk date), 1F61M-404, Special Collections, University of Kentucky. Politician. Prall attended Centre College and Transylvania University. He married Nannie Williams in 1851, and began practicing law with his father-in-law, George W. Williams, in Paris, Ky. in 1854. In 1859 he was elected to the state legislature, representing Bourbon County. He defeated Brutus J. Clay in that race. Prall won re-election in 1863, despite his pro- Union stance and the large number of southern sympathizers in Bourbon County. He moved his law practice to Lexington in 1868, and there he also served as Assessor of Internal Revenue from 1869-1873. This is a group of 17 letters John Prall wrote his father-in-law, George W. Williams, along with five letters written to Williams by others.  Prall's letters, written from Frankfort between September 5 and December 10, 1861, detail the infighting and the debates in the General Assembly between Union and Confederate sympathizers. Prall also includes family news, about his wife, Nannie, and about their daughter, Charlotte. Of the five remaining letters, those from L. Pryor, H.V.N. Boynton, Cornelius Neff and Mary Troutman Morrison were written in 1861; Jas. T. Ware wrote in 1865. Chronological arrangement. Boynton, H. V. N. Morrison, Mary Troutman. Neff, Cornelius.
