My WALL family is from England and Wales and then to America.
William WALL b. 1791 Tarlton, Gloustershire, England and died in Biddestone,
married Elizabeth (nee JOHN ?) b. 1786 Fine Lyard, Wiltshire, England and
died in Biddestone.
William WALL 1822 in Biddestone, Wiltshire, England
Thomas WALL 1826 in Biddestone, Wiltshire, England
Richard WALL 1831 in Biddestone, Wiltshire, England (my direct line.)
It is possible that all of the above sons went to the Iron and coal fields
of southwest Wales.
Richard WALL went to Monmounthshire, Wales to work in the Iron and Coal
mines. There he married
Naomi STEPHENS b. 1834 in Blaenavon, Monmouthshire, Wales. Their children
Mary Jane WALL b. 1855 in Bryn Mawr, Breconshire, Wales.
William Thomas WALL b. 1857 in Bryn Mawr, Breconshire, Wales. My direct
Elizabeth WALL b. 1859 in Bryn Mawr, Breconshire, Wales.
John WALL b. 1866 in Llanelly, Breconshire, Wales.
Joseph James WALL b. 1869 in Bedwellty, Moumonthshire, Wales.
William Thomas WALL married
Elizabeth TRUSCOTT b. 1862 in Cornwall, England and died in Ontario,
Canada. She later married William LEEK and they moved to Canada where they had a
son also named William LEEK. I have the children's names but don't want to us
them on line as they were b. in the 1900's in Canada.
The children of William Thomas WALL and Elizabeth Truscott were:
Naomi WALL b. 1879 in Aberdare, Wales and died in Honeypot, PA in the 1950's.
Thomas Richard "Dick" WALL b. 1881 in Aberdare Wales and died in a Coal Mine
explosion in Nanticock, PA. His 2 daughters never married.
Alban Truscott WALL b. 1882 in Aberdare, Wales and died in Wilkes-Barre, PA
in 1952. My direct line.
All of the above children immigrated to the Luzerne County, PA are to work
in the coal mines there. They immigrated in 1887.
