WHEAT, JUDGE ZACHARIAH, once Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals, and Lawyer, was born July 26, 1806, in Bourbon County, Kentucky; son of Zachariah and Elizabeth Kennedy Wheat, Virginians, who emigrated to this State at a very early period in its history. He was raised on a farm, and educated in the private schools of the country. Although he had learned the saddler's trade, in 1828 he began the study of the law with Cyrus Walker, at Columbia, Kentucky; and, in the following year, was admitted to the bar, and at once commenced practice in Adair and adjoining counties, residing at Columbia. In 1832, he was appointed Commonwealth's Attorney, by Gov. Metcalfe, and held the office through his and several successive administration. He finally resigned; but was reappointed to the same position, by Gov. Letcher, and held it at the time of receiving the appointment as Circuit judge, in 1848, from Gov. Crittenden. He served as circuit judge until the adoption of the new Constitution; and, under it, was elected by the people, without opposition, to the same office. At the end of his term, he declined re-election, and resumed the practice of the law. In 1856, he was elected to the Court of Appeals, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Chief-justice Crenshaw.
