Just when I thought I had all the children assembled for my great great grandparents, Luman and Elizabeth (ADAMS) Walling, a stray has cropped up. He's J. Luman Walling and he married Clara R. HILL 27 September, 1879 in Medina Co., OH. The following year, they had a son, Luie (which looks like it could have been short for Luman), who appears with them in the 1880 Census for Media Twp., Medina Co., OH.

The 1880 Census for Medina Co., OH is notable in that there were only three Walling heads of households in the entire county at that time...Hiram Luman Walling (a known son of Luman and Elizabeth), Luman Walling and this J. Luman Walling. With an estimated 1857 birth year, he could very well have been a son of Luman and Elizabeth. Can anyone give me a clue here? Did this couple ever have any more children?

I've always been under the impression that Luman and Elizabeth (Adams) Walling had ten children...but now I guess it's a case of "maybe...maybe not".
