Portage County, OH
Lucy Walbridge Lyman (unknown)
After leaving Litchfield Law School he went to Pittsburgh, PA and
in order to more fully perfect his legal studies he spent several months in
the law office of Hon Henry Baldwin, subsequently one of the Judges of the
Supreme Court of the United States.
In the spring of 1814 he moved to Portage County, Ohio and was admitted to the bar. He established himself permanently in his profession in the town of Ravenna. He was soon appointed Prosecuting Attorney of the
county, and in 1816 he was elected to the State Senate, where he served two
terms ending in 1832. In the fall of the latter year he was the
State Senator (OH) 1828-1832, 1850-1865
Records for the schools were sporadic, especially in the formative years of both institutions. If instructors kept comprehensive records for the Litchfield Female Academy or the Litchfield Law School, they do not survive. Researchers and staff have identified students through letters, diaries, family histories and genealogies, and town histories as well as catalogues of students printed in various years. Art and needlework have provided further identification of Female Academy Students, and Litchfield County Bar records document a number of Law School students. The history of both schools and the identification of the students who attended them owe credit to the early 20th century research and documentation efforts of Emily Noyes Vanderpoel and Samuel Fisher, and the late 20th century research and documentation efforts of Lynne Templeton Brickley and the Litchfield Historical Society staff.
