Notes / Description: 

O. C. King was a Morristown attorney who represented Grigsby in a circuit court appeal (Grigsby v. Tomlinson and Harrell). Grisgby was in an "embarrassing financial condition" and could not pay the King's note. King sued. N.B. In 2014, the Library & Archives obtained the Oliver Caswell King and Katherine Rebecca King Papers. They would be of interest to Civil War historians and researchers seeking original records on courtship behavior and Southern customs.
