Caleb, son of Daniel Walls and Alfred son of David Walls
- Just adding what notes we have on Caleb.
We do have (Jackson County) Alfred's line on paper and DNA..(Alfred son of David Wall: David of NAsh NC 1790s)...We have Daniel Wall as brother to David, and father of Caleb: We got DNA on a male in Texas: descendant of Caleb, but it did not match..which could mean orphans or
There are several variations of Caleb's name in the court records of the
county there. (Scotsborro) Several times he was referred to as "Cabb" and granddad.
"Gentleys Cove is a short distance southeast of downtown Scotsborro, of Jackson County Alabama,,the land of Daniel's is now covered by the Tennessee River...
According to the land plats and the census coding, the three had land
adjacent to each other. In the census, William was still in the
household of Daniel but Alfred and Caleb showed land adjacent. Both
Daniel and Caleb were received land grants because of military service.
Daniel apparently served in the War of 1812 and Caleb was in the
militia during the Cherokee removal in 1837 with Ambrister's unit. These
grants added to the land
already owned by the two. As
best as I could determine from the maps
the time, the land owned was in Gentleys Cove which is now covered by the
Tennessee River after it changed course. Land plats were among the
records saved from the Union troops."
