Rupert was my grandfather, and George Homer Wall my father. I'm curious as to your connection to the Wall and Bille families.

Thanks for contacting me. I have done a lot of research on my Wall family but am not connected to the Billes. Rupert Wall's father was John W. Wall b. 1846 Chatham, Kent. John W's wife was Jane Benson b. abt 1856 Ireland. Our family connection comes in one generation back to John W. Wall's parents. They were William G. Wall b. 26 Aug 1812 Canterbury Mead, Whitstable, Kent; d. 29 Sep 1878 and Emma Anderson b. 1818 Canterbury Mead, Whitstable, Kent. She died after 1882. My line is with Wm and Emma's 5th child, George Wall. Wm & Emma's children were Howard, William b. 5 Nov 1837, d. 30 Jan 1911 Ontario, CA; Charlotte b. 1842, m. Chas. Clift; John W., and George b. 5 Oct 1848 Gravesend, Kent, d. 15 June Hot Lake Sanatorium (near La Grande), Union, OR. I would love to share the many records and photos I have. I've included a family report. Be aware that not all of this has been verified, but I can send all my sources I have used if you would like.

Margie,

I'm thrilled that you contacted me. My great grandma was Ruth Wall Geiss from Oregon. Your husband and I share common ancestors. My ancestor, George Wall (b. 1848 Gravesend, Kent, Eng and d. 1925 Union Co, OR) and your husband's ancestor, John W. Wall (b. 1846 don't know where; don't know where/when died) were brothers!

I have lots of Wall family history. I'll send what I have and we can try to fill in the blanks. Could you send me more about your husband's line? I have been in contact with Mignon Wall Newton who's done lots of family history. I'll see what she knows.

Hello Peggy,

Thank you so much for responding. My husband was thrilled to know that someone from his family is still exists. I will try to gather as much information as I can so we can piece together the family tree. Neville has an older brother, who he is estranged from that lives in San Francisco. His name is Rupert William Wall. I believe he inquired a couple of years ago from the thread, as bwall661. Neville's mother is Luella Irene Wall. She was adopted, so I do not know her background. Neville does remember his grandfather and remembers the picture you send. I will send you a picture of his father and mother as soon as I can.

Thank you sincerely,
Margie

Margie,
Here's a fascinating letter I got from a relative.

Original Letter from Rupert Wall to Ruth Wall Geiss Baker
Rupert's Address: 1425 5th Ave, San Francisco:
"george is in New York at the Julliard Conservatory of Music. He has really done wonders there. He has been so far ahead in his classes that on the start within a week or two he was put in year work & about the end of the semester, his teachers were recommending him for graduation. Whether they will let him graduate in one year we will not know for a little while. He was put in first chair in trombone in the Senior Orchestra the second day. He can do harmony & sight reading with the best of them. He never had any piano lessons in his life until he went there & is in the advanced class. It is all rather strange to me & is quite a problem. The boy seems to be a muscial genius. It is his whole life & complete interest. How in heck he is going to make anything but a precarious living at it I don't know. It is a terribly hard game & the whole field is sowed up by the Jews. He belongs to the Musician's Union & has not been able to get even a casual job in New York since he has been there. Here in S. F. where he in known, he has had considerable casual work but the most of it is jazz stuff that would gall the soul of a real musician. His work at Julliard will probably make him more discontented with inferior music. He has a year to write music in fact has written two or three pieces that have been pronounced OK by people who are capable of judging. Everything is tied up by ASCAP or the other trust. If an unknown musician writes a piece, none of the publishers will print it. He has to sell it to Irvin Berlin or one of the big shots who give him $5 for it & publish it under their own name. To make a living by music, at present, seems to me about impossible. "

Hi Peggy:

My name is Neville Wall and I am responding to the letter you sent for my wife, Margie. First, let me say how happy I am that my wife found you. She never knew my mom or dad and always asks me about them. Growing up, I knew my dad was a musician but only summized from what my mom said that he was gifted. This letter confirms that. In my teanage years, my dad only played for enjoyment, working for the postal service at the S.F. Airport. I did know we was very intelligent. He was taking correspondence courses from University of California Extention in chemistry, physics, and calculus. Who does that for fun? Unfortunately, his drinking problems continued to plague him until his death.

I want to say how grateful I am to meet you and to learn more about my heritage. My brother Rupert (he hates the name and legally changed it to Bill) has all the love letters from my parents and almost all the old pictures. Unfortunately, he and I had a falling out 15 years ago. Do you have a personal email that might be a better way to privately communicate? Mine is nhwall@yahoo.com. Margie and I are thrilled to have connected with you and hope someday to meet you and other members of the family. Thank you very much and I hope to here from you soon.

Neville
