Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of Albert Wylly's papers pertaining to his real estate business, specifically the Marshall-Taliaferro estate and the case of Oberlin M. Carter, as well as other records.

Mary Magdalen Marshall (1784-1877) was a daughter of Gabriel and Mary Leaver; she married James Marshall. Mary M. Marshall inherited some property from her mother, Mary Leaver. Margaret Marshall, the adopted daughter of Mary M. Marshall, married A. Adelbert E.W. Barclay, son of Anthony Barclay. They had one daughter, Mary Marshall Barclay, who married Charles C. Taliaferro of Orange County, Virginia. Mary M. Barclay Taliaferro inherited the property of her grandmother, her mother having died. After her death, the property passed to the Taliaferro children: Frances Armistead Taliaferro, Anthony Barclay Taliaferro, and Charles Champe Taliaferro. Albert Wylly of Savannah was administrator of the estate in Savannah. The papers consist of letters to Albert Wylly from these Taliaferro heirs, asking for money from the estate, acknowledging receipt of it, and some family news. There are also some deeds to the property.

Oberlin M. Carter was District Engineer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Savannah. He was accused of fraudulent misuse of U.S. funds, court martialed, and dismissed from the service. Albert Wylly was Receiver of the Assets of the equity case of the United States vs. Oberlin M. Carter, et al.
