Here is the info I have on Mathias or Mathew Walling who married Amy Rice.

Mathias or Matthew was born about 1770 in Lee Co., VA and died before 1840 in Kentucky. I do not have any birth dates or death dates for Amy Rice.

Parents of Amy Rice were:
Isaac Rice Sr., born April 21, 1734 in Virginia and died 1815 in McMinn Co., TN.
Mary Margery Walling, born between 1734 and 1738 in Prince George, Washington Co., MD, died before 1812. Other info says she was born about 1757. I do not know which date is correct. Her parents were Elisha Walling and Mary Blevins. Her siblings were: Thomas Walling who married Mary Cox; Elisha Walling II who married Catherine Elizabeth Blevins (who was a sisteer to his mother Mary Blevins); Joseph Allen Walling who married Milicent (Milly) Jones; Sarah Walling who married Clement Lee; Mary Walling who married John R. Weddle in Holland; James W. Walling I who married Mary White or Pugh; Elizabeth (Betsy) Walling who married William (Will) Roberts I, John Walling who married ?? Unk, Frances Hale, Mary Roberts and Mary Nefsey Roberts. The last two may be one and the same. I don't know. Then there is Betsy Walling; Allen Walling and Magery Walling.

Mathias or Matthew Walling's parents were Thomas Walling and Mary Cox. Here is the info on them.

Thomas Walling born June 10, 1748 in Maryland or Virginia, died 1800 in Eastern Tennessee. Other info has his birth abt 1734, Providence, MD. I do not know which one is correct.
Mary Cox (wife of Thomas Walling) born abt 1726, died Aug 16, 1816. Other info list her birth as 1730 or 1740. I do not know which is correct.

Children of Thomas Waling and Mary Cox were:
Stephen Walling, born 1756. He married Mary ??
William Walling I, born Dec 25, 1759, died 1838 in Hawkins Co., TN. He also married a Mary ?? born about 1775 and died about 1850. Their children were Mary Walling and William Walling II.
Elisha Walling Sr. born about March 6, 1u60 in Henry Co., GA, died 1852 in Warren Co., OH. He married Ann ??. Their children were Lucy, Mary, Agnes, Winifred, Catherine, Elizabeth, Elisha Jr. and William.
Judy Walling, born June 17, 1768 in Virginia.
Issac Christman (husband of Judy Walling) born Nov 25, 1767 in Virginia, died 1838 in Glasconade Co., MO. Isaac Chrisman served in the Virginia House of Delegates representing Lee County.
Their children were Jane, mary, Margaret, Gilbert, Eliusha, Isaac, Elinor, Agnes, Thomas, William and Stephen.

Their children were Mary Ann, Elizabeth, John, Joseph, Jesse, Hannah and Martha Patsy.
Caty Walling: no dates for birth or death. She married a man with the last name of Herd.

This concludes the information I have except for dates on some of the children and grandchildren, etc.

What do you have?

Your cousin, Joann

Matthew, Thomas, William, and Elisha Wallen were petitioners for forming Lee Co., VA on October 25, 1792. Matthew Wallen is on the 1795 Lee Co., VA Tax list and is shown as being over 16 years of age and possessing two horses. Matthew, James, Elisha, William and Joseph Wallen purchased land in Hawkins Co., TN (then Sullivan Co., NC) in 1790. In 1820, Matthew Wallen purchased 72 acres of land from Isaac Rice of McMinn Co., TN, thought to be his brother-in-law. The land was on the South side of Clinch River, Hawkins Co., TN, at Wallen's Bend and was next to the land of William Hurd.

Elisha Wallen, the Longhunter" by Carolyn Wallin states that Amy Rice, daughter of Margery Wallen and Isaac Rice, married Mathias Walden, a cousin.

Since all the children of Margery Wallen's brothers are documented except the children of Thomas Walling, it is speculated that Mathias / Matthew Wallen / Walden / Walling was a son of Thomas Walling born 1730.
