Ny ggggrandfather/mother were William and Lydia Walling from N.J./R.I. They settled in S.C. where he served in the S.C. Militia as a minuteman/patriot during the Am. Rev. War. They settled in N. Alabama around l818 and remained there until their death in the mid l830s. I think William had a brother named Richard that perhaps remained in S.C. I have researched very little information on the Wallings from S.C. My e-mail address is rodger-walling@ bellsouth.net.I will be happy to share information.
