Abt 1770 - 1850 (~ 75 years)
||Between 1845 and 1850
- It is my belief that his wife was named Caty/Catherine. This is based primarily on tax records that list Everet Wallace on an 1844/1845 tax list and a Caty Wallace in 1846 as owing taxes for 1845. In those days, while women were generally not assessed taxes - they are frequently listed after the death of their husbands. In my research, I have not been able to locate another Caty/Catherine Wallace who would have been of age or could have been widowed in order to paying taxes at this time. Additional circumstantial evidence that Everetís wife was named Caty/Catherine exists in the naming of their grandchildren. Celia Wallace Manessí 1st daughter was named Catherine and her 1st son was named Everet.
Caty/Catherine's maiden name is listed numerous times on the Internet as Horner. There is not one single piece of conclusive evidence to confirm that. Frankly, I believe that it is inaccurate. The Horner family resided in Orange County, NC until circa 1823 when George W. Horner moved to Moore County, NC. Everet would have married Catherine prior to 1788 -- 35 years before the George W. Horner arrived in Moore County, NC. There is no evidence that links the Moore County, NC Wallaces to Orange County, NC.

Everet Wallace appeared for the very first time in the 1790 Census in Moore County, NC. Everet, appearing with his wife, Caty/Catherine and their infant daughter, Celia, were the only Wallaces recorded in the Moore County, NC Census that year. From his first appearance in the 1790 Census to his last in a Tax Record in 1844/1845, there are over 35 known references to Everet in Moore County, NC records. Among these records, Everet can be found entering land, paying taxes, serving on juries, testifying at trials, and purchasing goods at estate sales.

||Beyond Everet Wallace|
Despite over twenty years of research and close examination, Everet Wallace [c1770-c1845] still remains our genealogical roadblock. There have been many theories, close calls, and pure guesses as to who Everet's father was and where the family originated prior to Everet living in Moore County, NC.
My belief has always been that Everet was either born in Moore County, NC or moved there at a young age. My grandfather, Mallie Wallace, said his grandfather, Emsley Wallace, told him that Everet was the first Wallace "in the country". Now while we know he was nowhere near the first Wallace in the United States, "in the country" probably meant "around here/upper Moore County. " Two of Everet's children lived until the 1880 Census and both Isham and Franey listed their parents as having been born in NC so I feel pretty confident that Everet was born in NC.
In this document, you will find some of the most prominent unconfirmed leads that I have been able to find. If you will notice that none of these speculations can be found in my actual family tree as I have no factual evidence regarding their relationship to Everet. These are purely speculative thoughts based on my personal research.
