Records in Augusta County, VA

From Chalkley’s Augusta County Records:

  • Vol. 1 - MAY 19, 1773. - (106) Margaret Sollas petitions that her husband, Nicholas Sollas, bound out their son, James Sollas, aged 13 years, to Henry Hall and ran away.-- James could be better educated if bound to Adam Wall (a son of Margaret & 1st husband John WAll Sr.) with whom Margaret now lives-- ordered.

    Adam Wall II was born about 1750 in Augusta Co., Va., and died in 1799. His will is filed in Montgomery Co., Va. Adam Wall II was probably never married. That didn't keep him from having children, however. His "wife" was Mary Trollinger, who some researchers believe was already married to Henry Trollinger. (Note: appears to be unfounded speculation)
    On 2 different occasions Adam Wall and Mary Trollinger were charged by the county grand jury with adultery. Apparently Adam II had friends in high places, because there was never any prosecution on these charges. The couple had 4 children: 1. Adam Wall III; 2. James Wall; 3. William Wall; and 4. Peggy Wall. We won't talk about any except Adam Wall III from whom we descend.
