Subj: Wall Family   Date: 1/7/99 (Tina) (New email: 6/99)

Hi to all of you Wall Family researchers! Lets all put our heads together and see what we can come up with....Please email me with which Wall line you are looking for and what you have. I have been researching 2 different Wall line(one was by mistake!) but I have the info anyway. These are the Walls that I have:

Rufus Wall:                    Rufus Riley Wall:

children:                         children:

Jess                               Robert

Will                               Elizabeth

     Anna                            Jappenerlee Zula

Nancy                                 Monroe




If anyone thinks that they may have info on the above please let me know. I have info on Rufus's family back to 1560 on one line and a little on the other line.

Hi, this is David Anderson again.
I thought I would give you some new information I have on William G. Wall.
He was born in TN on 1 April 1827. His first marriage was to a K. ?, who died in 1864 in Calhoun MO. due to consumption.
His second marriage was to a Sarah E. Herndon of Calhoun, MO.
It seems he appeared in MO in the 1850 census for Henry Co., but was not in the 1840 census.
I take it he moved there some time in the 1840's.
If this helps, please post or pass on.

Hi David:
I am sending you a copy of some more Wall sending your note to Janice and to my cousin Jon Wray, "just in case" there is a connection.....
I will probably put up a web page with all of this on it so we can refer back to it and include any other Wall info I may have...
As you can see in my note to Janice below, I know very little on my Anna Wall who married John Weakley....
I do have some more Wall info from Beth Draper ( who is on AOL ....but I looked and did not see your Wall in her sending her a copy of this note, too.

I have found out that William married a Sarah E. *HERNDON, not Sarah E. MOODY. Someone was leading me down the wrong path. All the other information is correct.

Sarah E. HERNDON b. 1843 Calhoun MO d. 928 Corona,CA

Thanks for your help. I hope we find a connection.

Nancy ,
My Wall married a Carroll.
Rebecca Wall, daughter of Jesse Wall married Edward Mosley Carroll,Sr.
Ellington Carroll married Sarah Daniel
I believe Ellington to be brother or Uncle to Edward (brother more likely).
Do you think there might br connection between my Wall's and Carroll"s and you and your cousin's.
Thanks for e-mailing me and I have your site on my favorites list.
Keep in touch.

Hi Janice,
I also have Wall in Dickson County or surrounding areas......however I don't know any more than that Anna Wall married John Weakley......
I do have the dates of birth & marriage from the Samuel Anderson Weakley family history Book......

Also there is a Hightower connection with the Bowker line.......I will have to check on that one and see what I have.....

And my cousin, Jon Wray, in Florida who is on Prodigy, has the Carroll line....

Some of my other lines in Dickson are are Daniel, Sensing, Jones, Phillips, and tons more I can't think of at the moment....Lots of mine were in the Southside/Neptune area of Montgomery County, right at the corner of Dickson & Cheatham counties.

Here is my line. I also have some records of some Walls who are buried in Corona, CA. If you want those also, I can supply those to you. I am trying to find out where in TN William was from.

Let me know if anyone connects with this WALL clan. I know there were more brothers and sisters of William G. Wall and I am sure more children from at least the first marriage must exist.

Take care and talk at ya later.
