I just met a verified DNA connected cousin from the Joshua Wall, son of
Henry Wall of abt 1690 , line. (Clay )Wall of western Tenn.
Lou Poole had speculated that Henry Wall of PG , Va. 1690 was connected to
John Wall that married Elizabeth Frome Clay, the widow of John Clay.
Elizabeth had a son from first marriage, Charles Clay that John Wall
Because the courthouse records were destroyed there is no proof of this
connection, John to Henry.
But after looking at the line of Joshua Wall, one of 4 sons of Henry Wall,
knowing I have verified documentation of my DNA ties to Henry Wall and now
to Joshua Wall . What I saw were many males in Clay Wall’s line are named
Henry, Clay and even one grand father named Henry Clay!
I can’t prove a thing, but it’s mighty suspicious and makes me more sure
than ever that Lou was correct. There is a tie between John Wall, arr 1627
Charles City and Henry Wall of Prince George Co Va.
Keep in mind, PG County was originally in Charles City first recorded land
Can you give me any info to back up or shoot down?
Thanks, Bill Wall
