    Capt. John Wall
    Birth: Apr. 27, 1742, East Freehold, Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA
    Death: Jun. 1, 1814, Cynthiana, Harrison County, Kentucky, USA

    John Wall was born 27 Apr 1742, married Agnes McDuffee, born 17 Dec 1745 in Freehold Twp, Monmouth Co, East New Jersey, only child of Robert and Agnes McDuffee. The latter, born 1727, was living, widowed, on a farm on which part of the "Battle of Monmouth" was fought 28 Jun 1788. The story of that afternoon, as handed down from generation to generation is "the old woman and children were hurried to a place of safety, while the younger women followed their men, keeping as near as they could, to carry water to them, for the day was the hottest of a hot summer. Gen. Charles Lees's unnecessary retreat caused great despair among them and it was during the rally that Molly Pitcher saw her husband fall and she took his place. Agnes McDuffee was with these women and was a friend and neighbor of Mollie Pitcher". We have, in our family, a reticule made by Agness McDuffee, also a curious valentine whose unfolding is a puzzle, made by Robert McDuffee!

    Agnes (McDuffee) Wall died and John Wall married Hannah Ketchum, born 4 Feb 1750 in New Jersey, and emigrated to Washington County, PA and settled where the town of Finleyville now stands in 1775 and here the remainder of his children were born.
