Anthony Wayne Wall
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1824
Lonedell
Franklin County
Missouri, USA
Death: 1905
Washington County
Missouri, USA

He was the son of Simon and Mariah/Mary (Wells) Wall. The family used both variants Wall and Walls.

Anthony's family came to Missouri from Kentucky in 1815 and bought land in what would become the Lonedell area in 1820, as soon as the land could be bought from the federal government. They may have settled there originally in 1815 or perhaps in the St. Louis area.

Anthony's father died in 1828. As the family had some property, including slaves, and his mother was illiterate, guardians were appointed for the five children who were still minors. Anthony, along with his brothers Knighton and Simon, became the ward of Plato Cole, who may have been his brother-in-law. Their older brothers John and Andrew became the wards of William Lewis, their mother's stepbrother.

There is no record in Simon's estate papers of his land being sold, so presumably Mary continued to live on the family farm with her children. In 1830, Mary was listed next door to her daughter and son-in-law, Aaron & Mariah (Wall) Short.

1860 - Hasn't been found Anthony on the census.

1861 - According to their report on the 1900 census, Anthony married Mrs. Lavicia (Emmons) Short, widow of Squire Woodford Short in 1861 and daughter of Julius and Lavicia (Robinett) Emmons. Lavicia had at least three children from her first marriage: Julius Eli, Amanda, and Della Short, all born in Texas where their father died. Details on Lavicia's Short children can be found at Doug Short's website:

1870 - part of the 1870 Franklin Co., MO census is missing, including the neighborhood near Lonedell where Anthony and Lavicia would probably have been living.

1878 - "Centennial Biographical Directory of Franklin Co., MO"
Page 93 - Anthony Wall was a wagon maker in Grubville in 1878. Grubville is a few miles south of Lonedell.

The family was listed on the 1880 census in the Lonedell area:

1880 Franklin Co., Mo. Prairie Twp census vol 12, ed 75, sheet 20, dwelling 144/149.
Anthony Wall, age 52, farmer, born MO, parents born in TN
Martha, age 43, wife, born MO

Marselles, b. Aug 1872, 27, single, born MO; saw mill laborer.

Sometime 1900-1910, the family moved about thirty miles southeast to Blackwell, Kingston Township, Washington Co., MO.

Anthony died sometime between 1880-1900 and is almost certainly buried at the Blackwell Masonic cemetery as that is where Lavissa would be laid to rest in 1923. If Anthony had been buried back in the Lonedell area in Franklin county, it would not have been difficult to take her there for burial with her husband.

In 1910, Lavicia was living with her unmarried son:
