John the name Chitwood caught my attention as for years I have tried to correct the misinformation on the web that Major Wall married Elizabeth Chitwood... Major Wall married Mary Elizabeth James1/1803 in Mecklenburg, Va. The Chitwoods also lived in Va. and also moved to Tennessee as the Wall family did... I know there is probably some connection. As you said after the Wall family went to Arkansas so did the Chitwoods... Was there a family connection or just friends?I have never found who Major's mother was. His father was Joshua Wall 11, It could be possible that Major's mother was a Chitwood. Joshua Wall11, remarriedin 5/1817toPermelia Richardson and goes to Lincoln Co., Tn.Some Chitwoods also end up there.Do you know if there is a connection?
