Walthall, Francis (fl. ca. 1840s)
Francis Walthall (fl. ca. 1840) was a Raleigh builder and may have been related to John A. Walthall. In 1841, he took a contract in 1841 to build the brick Richmond County Courthouse. No other works have been identified. The Walthall family was a numerous one in Virginia, and included men named Francis and John. In 1837, Francis A. Walthall married Sarah Wilson in Granville County, and by 1840, Francis Walthall was head of a household in Wake County; he was not listed in North Carolina in 1850. Francis may be the brickmaker, aged 34, with a wife named Sarah, listed in the 1850 U.S. census in Henrico County, Virginia.
