    Frank J. Hall, attorney at law, a portrait of whom appears in this volume, was born in Washington Township, this county. He is the son of William S. and Nancy M. ( Legg ) Hall, the former a native of Butler County, Ohio, of Welsh and German descent, the latter a native of Hamilton County, Ohio, of Scotch-Irish and German descent. His boyhood was spent on his father's farm, where during the winter months he attended the neighborhood school, and at seventeen was so far advanced that he became a teacher, continuing so employed for about two years. At twenty he entered Farmers' College, College Hill, Ohio, and there showed such oratorical ability as to gain an enviable reputation. He left this institution, however, and, in September, 1865, entered the State University at Bloomington, Ind., where, after two years of study he graduated with the class of 1867. He then entered the Law Department of the same university, and graduated in 1869, standing high in his class and in the esteem of his fellow classmen. At once the practice of his profession was begun in Rushville, where it has been continued to the present time with a marked degree of success. Besides enjoying a lucrative practice drawn from a constituency of his fellow citizens, he is the attorney for three railway corporations. His scholarly and professional attainments have made him an ornament to the Bar and society of Rushville, but his innate kindliness of disposition has done even more perhaps, than these attainments towards giving him the good name which it is his privilege to enjoy. Generous and kind, always consistent and manly, he has made at every stage of his career devoted personal friends. Indeed, all those attributes of mind and heart which characterize and adorn the genuine gentleman are his possessions. Twice he has been nominated, without his solicitation, by the Democratic party an a candidate for Representative of his county in the State Legislature, and though for political reasons, success was impossible, his personal popularity was shown in both contests by the fact that he received much more than his party vote. In college he was a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity.
