I still think it just too Strange that the Chitwood name has always been associated with the Wall name.. For years it was rumored that Major Wall was married to Elizabeth Chitwood which was completely untrue.. Major had only one wife in his lifetime, Mary Elizabeth James, married1803, Mecklenburg, Va. However, The chitwoods have always turned up where the Wall's go.Lincoln Co. Tennessee, Joshua James 1817... Chitwoods there.1851Grandison M. Wall son of Major Wall and Grandson of Joshua Wall establishes a business & home in Stone County, Ar.So do the Chitwoods.. Major was born abt1785 in Virginia...His father of course is Joshua but, who was his Mother ? does anyone know?Joshua married Permelia Richardson before going to Arkansas in 1817.This was his 2nd known marriage but could have had one or more in between the mother of Major and Permelia.I think Joshua's will listMajor & Lizette or Elizabeth as his prior children to his marriage to Permelia.........Does anyone know the answer to this? Was Major's mother perhaps a Chitwood????????E.J.
