HISTORY OF SOME OLD ROCKINGHAM HOMES AND FAMILIES In 1950, my grandmother, Anne Pearl Pratt Van Noppen, published a series of articles in The Messenger on historic homes along the Dan River in Rockingham County, North Carolina. She followed this series with an additional series of articles about other historic homes of Rockingham County. In addition to details about the homes themselves, she included genealogical facts about the families who lived in these homes. I am typing these articles to place on the NC GENWEB archives in the hope that they will be useful to those researching some of these families.

WALL-REYNOLDS HOME "Wall Street" they call it, the few miles of country road between Morton's Store on the Winston-Salem highway and Beaver Island Township on the Pine Hall-Sandy Ridge Road. The name brings a smile when those who know the original Wall Street consider the contrast between them - Wall Street I with its dull gray old buildings, so tall as to cause the dark narrow street to resemble a canyon, where there are fortunes made and lost almost daily and Wall Street II with its long stretches of tobacco and corn bordering the sunny road, where work is slow and profit the same, where there are occasionally stately groves in which, far back from the road, are the homes of the Wall family. At one time all the homes along the road belonged to members of the Wall clan, this giving rise to the name "Wall Street". These homes, chiefly of the old period, are interesting architecturally, having distinction and originality and speaking in eloquent terms of the pride, prosperity and good taste of the Walls. The first record of Zachariah Wall, born May 29, 1741, is that he was the son of Robert Wall, married Annie Everett, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth Everette, both Zachariah and his wife having been natives of the eastern shore of Maryland. With their family, and probably others, they moved to Rockingham County in the vicinity of Madison in 1797, where Zachary accumulated much property and died in 1818. Nearly all his descendants, and there are many, lived and died in North Carolina. James Wall was a wanderer far from his people. He moved to Twin Falls, Idaho and died there. Zachariah Wall I owned land between the two creeks west of Madison to Hairston's Ford, a distance of nine miles, and built his large, two-story house west of the creeks on the hill where Homer Groan's house now stands. Old residents of Madison remember that his home was occupied by Bob Lewis' family when it was burned about fifty years ago. Children of Zachariah and Annie Everett Wall were Amy, Robert, Richard, Ann Elizabeth, William and Sarah. Zachariah's son Robert, born in 1763, married Fannie Parsons in Culpeper County, Virginia. Their children were Zachariah II, James and Catherine Wall. Robert's son, Zachariah II married first Elizabeth Smith. Their children were Robert, Samuel and William Wall. He married second Jane Peoples and their children were Zachariah III, Granville, Lucy, Lizzie, Jane and Eliza Wall. Zachariah III married Celia Matthews December 27, 1850. They built the old Wall house in 1852. Their children were James, who married Mary Moore of Valley Home and moved to Idaho; Dr. Walter Wall who married Bettie Hooper and lived in Madison but died at the old home; Mollie, who married William Blackburn and lived at Walnut Cove; Granville, who married Sallie McAnally and lived in Stokes County; John D. who married Mollie Reynolds and had a store in Winston-Salem; Charlie who married Annie Laura Hudson and lives in his house near the old home; Nannie who married Robert McAnally and moved to Richmond, Virginia; Muncie who married Nannie Hatch and lives in East Lake, Tennessee; Hunter, who married Della Holland and who was a tobacconist in Winston-Salem; and Cartie, who married Tom Reynolds. Two girls died in childhood. Only three are still living, Charlies, Muncie and Cartie. Zachariah III, like the other Zachariahs, gave his children large plantations. Mr. And Mrs. Zack Wall always had their children home for Christmas; all the family looking forward to these occasions. Often there would be so many in the house at night that they would sleep on pallets. Preachers frequently stayed at the Walls. Mrs. Wall said she was never too tired to fix a meal for the preacher or the doctor. Miss Cartie, who is Aunt Cartie to many nieces and nephews who love her and visit her often, has lived in this house all of her life except for the first five years of her marriage to Tom Reynolds. They had no children but reared and cared for two as if they were their own. Louise Wall, Hunter's daughter, having lost her mother, lived in their home until her marriage to Charles Anglin, son of Mr. and Mrs. C.P. Anglin of Madison. They live in Winston-Salem, have four children and two grandchildren. Mrs. Cartie Wall is foster grandmother and great-grandmother. A foster son, Russell Moore Reynolds, grew up in the home, went to the first World War, and died in a Veteran's hospital. Mr. Tom Reynolds died in 1948. The Wall-Reynolds house is well preserved for its ninety eight years. It is tall, having two stories and an attic. It has large rooms, tall chimneys, with windows on each side of the chimneys. On the inside below each window is an interesting paneling. The woodwork in the parlor is painted in marbled effect and is the original painting which was done ninety eight years ago and still well preserved. The front porch is small, with columns and a railing. Among the old pieces of furniture is a handsome bedroom suite given by Miss Cartie's grandfather Matthews to her mother, Celia Matthews Wall, a walnut wardrobe designed by Zack Wall III, which has a tilting mirror in the upper center panel, a dough tray of the style now much prized, attractive old chairs and the little leather trunk which Tom Reynolds's mother, Eleanora Gosnold, brought with her when she came from Hagerstown, Maryland to Madison to be a teacher a hundred years ago. The lawn is studded with giant oaks and elms and across the front lawn is a tall hedge of Scotch broom. The seed of this Planta Genesta (botanical) is said to have been brought to America in feed for the horses which the British used during the Revolution. In a previous war, the British soldiers had fastened pieces of this plant in their helmets for camouflage, thus they were called Plantagenets. These are the forebears and one cross-section of the Wall family; there are many others. Most members of the family are vigorous, long-lived, have large families and love the land. There is a remarkable degree of unity and congeniality among them.
