David was the son of PATSY Ann (Sibley) and CHARLES Jedediah Wall of Mississippi.

A photo of his headstone was requested in 2012. The photographer reported that this grave could not be found.

They also reported, specifically:
"I looked there but there is not a head stone for this man I believe that he is in mass grave. (History of) While an active military installation, from September 1861 to March 1, 1862, it trained 5,000-6,000 soldiers for the Confederate States of America. However, the place was disease-ridden, resulting in 1,000-1,500 deaths at the camp. The diseases ranged from cerebrospinal meningitis, pneumonia, and typhoid fever with poor weather and lack of sufficient supplies for the troops contributing to the dire situation. In a single day 75 cases of typhoid and pneumonia were reported.[2] Under the direction of the 27th Tennessee Regiment's Colonel Thomas Logwood, the camp was burned down."
