In my off again/on again research of the McFall(s), I'm at a point where more answers leave only questions.
Am descended from James McFall(s)/Sarah "Sallie" Mace, thru son, Arthur McFalls and his wife, Hazy McHone.Have assumed that James' parents were Arthur (Arter) McFall(s)& Delilah - he of Revolutionary War history along with hanged brother, John; she of "scalped but survived".
Then, a found letter from James Pitman to Cornelius "Arter" McFall regarding Mr. Pitman's sister, Mary, who was "scalped but survived".AND a message on this board saying that Delilah was the wife or Arthur's brother, Patrick.And that James McFall's mother was Delia not Delilah.
Some have speculated, that because of the "scalped" letter of Mary Pitman and the "Arthur" in Cornelius' name, that Cornelius (Neil) and Mary were the parents of James McFall(s), half brother to Suzanna and husband of Sallie Mace (Maix).Further, that Delilah/Delia are actually 2 separate people, neither were scalped, and one may have had nothing to do with Arthur except as a sister-in-law.
Can you shed some light on our (my) confusion?I can give you the website to view this Mary Pitman letter.
Would love to find documentation to plug into this tree.There are some "Reedy" descendants looking to fill the holes too.
