Walter and James, reputed sons of Humphrey Wall, came from New Jersey and settled on a neck of land called "The Forks" lying between the Monongahela and the Youghiogheny Rivers, about 16 miles south of Pittsburgh, in Allegheny County, PA. For years, this locality was known as The Jersey Settlement, by reason of numerous settlers from New Jersey, especially from Monmouth County. In 1766, having cleared land and built houses, they brought their families. The records of the Walls were destroyed, by accident, many years ago, and I am strongly inclined to believe that instead of Walter and James being the sons of Humphrey Wall, that they are the children of James Wall, as appears from the following will:

1750-51, Mch. 13; will proved Apr 4, 1760, to which he made his mark. Wall, sick, of Middlesex County, mentioned:

wife; four daughters: Martha, Rebecca, Abigail, and Neomia, each, L10; two sons, Walter and James, the residue of his estate. All of the children were minors.

Executors: Friends - John and Joseph Storey

Be wary of PA county evolution! The Applegate/Wall families did NOT migrate to Westmoreland Co. in 1766, it did NOT exist then. Evolution: Cumberland Co. (1750); to Bedford Co. (1771); to Westmoreland Co. (1773); to Washington Co. (1781); and finally, ...(Read more)
