<<Looking for: John McKnitt Alexander Wallis b. 1790 in Mecklenburg Co.,
N.C. After he married, he and his family moved to Morgan Co., Alabama
and then on to Memphis, Pickens CO., Alabama. I am needing his childrens
names and birthdates. The 1850 census has several names that I feel are
not of his own children. Who were they? J. H. Wallis age 33 b. N.C.,
Francis C.______ age 29 b. Al., Elijah C. age 7 b. Al.
