States: North Carolina: Stanly
I am looking for info on Moses Walls (Watts?)of Montgomery & Stanly Co. NC. The 1843 Stanly Co. NC will of Joel Ledbetter mentions a Moses Walls who bought land from Edmund Smith. The handwritten will is very clear as regards the name Walls, however, I have never found such a person in Stanly or adjacent counties. I have found a Moses Watts in the 1830 and 1840 Montgomery Co. NC census records, in the 1845 Stanly Co. Tax List, the 1850 Stanly Co. census (Mosses & wife Nancy with children).
The will also names John Stanly Walls as a grandson which I have not found, but, there is a John S. Watts listed with the famiy of Mosses Watts in the 1850 Stanly Co. Census.
I would appreciate any info you care to share about this family.
