"William Wall was born in Virginia in 1758. During the Revolutionary War he served in Taylor's Virginia Regiment. His military service is listed in the DAR Index of Patriots.

"He was married to Nancy Elkins, also a Virginian. The Walls were among the early settlers to Fall Creek Township [Madison County]. There were two know children, John and Martha Ellen. John Wall owned real estate in Pendleton and a monument marks his grave in the old Falls Cemetery. There are several graves in what appears to be a family burial plat. It is logical that one of them is now the unmarked resting place of William Wall."

From American Revolutionary patriots discussed by Raymond Davis in this biography of Madison County.
