Adam Wall came to America in 1738 on board the ship Winter Galley, landed in Philadelphia. We think Adam was born about 1717 and that he had a brother named Conrad, a brother named John, and a sister named Apfel (or Apple in English) who was also called Abigail by some researchers. Conrad Wall came first. The others probably came together. One researcher says that their father's name was Hans George Wahl, who died in Europe.
Adam Wall I as he is called, apparently was never married. When he died in Virginia in 1763, he left no descendants at all. There is no mention of a wife in his will.
