  of 808


The first lawyer to locate at Grand Junction was Thos. H. Grove, who came from Hagerstown, Maryland, the original home of the Hagers, who figured prominently in the early history of the town. He came in 1870, remained nine years and moved to Colorado.

I. K. Alder, settled here in the practice of his profession in 1881, and remained three years, moving to Ainsworth, Nebraksa.

E. C. Clark, succeeded Alder as the barrister of Grand Junction, but was only in practice a short time, possibly three years, and sought a new location.

W. W. Turner, came to Grand Junction in the late 80's and is still a busy man in the local, county and state courts. Outside of Jefferson, in the matter of length of service in the same town, he has first rank in the county.

Gates Albert, after successful service in the public schools of Grand Junction, studied law, and hung out his shingle here in 1889. He was elected county attorney in 1897, and moved to Jefferson soon after. In 1902 he formed a partnership with E. B. Wilson, of that city, a business combination which still exists.

W. H. Adams, is the latest legal representative to locate in Grand Junction, coming there about four years ago. He has a fair reputation as a public speaker and made an unsuccessful struggle for legislative honors a year ago (1906).
