Curious to learn more about the Stinson family from Willaimson Co,
TN. I am researching my mother's paternal side of the family and have
found very little information. My mother's father was Clark Stinson
(Stenson) Wall. He was from Williamson Co, supposedly grew up on a
farm or plantation there but this may actually be located in MS. We
believe he is connected to the Clement Wall lineage. However, with a
middle name of Stinson (Stenson), it is possible that his family also
is connected to the Stinson lineage from Williamson Co as well. Any
information would be appreciated. Thank you!
