Wall family in Cass Co.

My branch of the WALL family left Covington/Crenshaw Co., AL and settled in Cass County and Franklin County Texas. These were the descendents of Wright Wall Sr., a Rev. War veteran from SC. He and three sons, Wright Jr., Thomas and Absalom migrated first to Greene Co., MS and then into AL. They also had with them a grandson, Daniel Dozier, son of Frances Wall and Benj. Dozier. Then in the late 1860s, early 1870s, several members of these families moved to TX. The names mentioned in your photo are most likely members of this same Wall family.

Hi Valarie. I assume that your gr grandfather was Charlie OBrien who was a brother to my grandfather, Frank Monroe OBrien. Their father was Jeremiah OBrien who was born in Pennsylvania in 1839 and died in Cass County. Their mother was Lamirah Arlene Clementine Griffin, dgt. of Rachel Jane Griffin, who was dgt. of William (Bill) Griffin. Lamirah's stepfather was a Frazier but I do not know the name of her father. I have family stories of Jeremiah but have not been able to trace him prior to his move to Cass County. I would love to share information.

I may have information that may help in the research of Wright Wall I. On August 6, I basically stumbled into information by chance. If you can on your search engine in the search field, type in "Descendants of William Taylor". (I was originally hunting for info on Absalom Wall and his name came up in this families info). There is about 50+ pages on the Taylor family but they talk about a connection between the Taylors and Walls. There is a list of end notes of various sources they got this info. Thought this might help anyone that is doing research in this area. I has open more research doors for me. Absalom Wall was my great-great uncle and Thomas Wall Sr., my great-great grandfather.
Hop this will help.

Surnames: DECCO
Lillie Henrietta Decco is the complete name of Lou Vina Crow Decco's child. She was not a Lillian. I have recently found that Lillie's father who was named William was born in Ohio ca 1858-59. There is only one family on the census there who had a son named William of that age. The father is Francis Decco, born in France and the mother is Mary, born in Switzerland. All children are born in Ohio which indicates they were in Ohio by 1848, the oldest child being 12 in 1860. Our family tradition says William was Austrian so France and Switzerland are possibly correct I would think. No proof.
