I'm hoping that someone out there in genealogy land could tell me if there is a Thistle – Walling connection. My grandmother’s name was Caroline Thistle Walling (born 1904 in NJ). Her parent’s names were Frank Walling and Mary Wilson.
Written on the back of a postcard picture I have is: Thistle, Park Ave., Matawan, NJ.
The 1880 census in Matawan, NJ has a Frank Walling listed as a stepson of Samuel Thistle with his wife’s name as Caroline.
I’m wondering if anyone knows if this Frank Walling is my great grandfather.
