If you have used information presented on this page prior to November 25, 2007, you should review what is now presented. Prior to Nov. 25th, a large portion of this family's history was stated incorrectly, most notably the family of George W. Wall and James Reason Wall, sons of Daniel Wall and Anna Waters. Another page is being prepared for the George W. Wall who married Elizabeth O. Newsom, who is not the son of this Daniel Wall. A second marriage and children have been added for James Reason Wall. I am most grateful to Charles Wall who e-mailed me with the correct information and presented it in such a convincing manner. There is no doubt that I had George W. Wall with the wrong Wall family. If you used or copied the incorrect information or posted it on any other website, please make your corrections and note the revision. I accept full responsibility for this error. - Faye Jarvis Moran

*I went with mom and dad to the funeral but I can't find the date. He was rather successful. He is buried in Kinsman. Ohio. He married Elsie McClung. Her family was wealthy which is one of the reasons he was successful. He was 6'4" and weighed over 200. Their children were;Jennings, Addie, Katie, Bill, Gladys, Frank, Lake, Gene and Marlin. Marlin was cousin Anne's dad. - Charles Wall

**Dave also was large for his day. He supposely sparred with John L Sullivan, world heavy weight boxing champion, at the Greenbrier Hotel for $5.00 a day. He was a MD. He married Rebecca McClung, cousin of Elsie McClung. They had a son, James. - Charles Wall.

***Rachel Anna Wall born Mar 28, 1875 and died Mar 26,1952. She was buried on her birthday. She married Charles Simmons. Their children were Glenna Bransford, Henry, Elizabeth Bransford, and Ruth Miller. - Charles Wall

****Charles Ira Wall born June 8, 1878 or 79. He wasn't sure of the year, but offically it is 1878 and died Jan 23,1952. He was a MD. He was smaller than his brothers. He married Stella Elizabeth Mauzy. They had two sons, Haven Neill and Charles Laird Wall. Haven married Margert McClung, no relation to Rebecca and Elsie. They had one son, Dr Haven N. Wall Jr. Laird married Melissa Snedegar. They had three children; me, Charles Ira Wall II, Elizabeth Arlene Wall, Linda Marie Wall Cruse. - Charles Wall

Most of the people who knew about our family in the early days in WV are dead. Glenna Bransford daughter has all of Glenna's papers, but not the personal details. Glenna knew James R and the guy we knew as cousin Bill. I think he was the son of John or Loyd and was ggfather's partner in the Civil War. James R never talked about the war but cousin Bill had no secrets. - Charles Wall
