  • Name Dallie Wallace  [1
    Born Between 1810 and 1815 
    Gender Female 
    Died Between 1845 and 1849 
    • Note: Information passed down through the Britt family identifies Beacom's 1st wife, Dallie, was a sister to his 2nd wife, Deborah. It is my opinion that she was probably not her sister but either her aunt or 1st cousin.

      Census records show that Beacom's first wife was born between 1810-1815, which would most likely rule out Nathan Wallace (Born c1800) as the father due to his age. It is much more likely that Beacom's 1st wife was a daughter to Everet Wallace or Nicholas Wallace. Each have an unidentified female child being born in and around 1810-1815.

      Everet's daughter born between 1810-1815 is listed in his household in the 1820 Census but had moved out by 1830. Beacom and his 1st wife appear together in the 1830 Census. Seemingly more likely but maybe less possible is that Nicholas Wallace was her father. Nicholas moved to Henderson County, TN prior to 1830. Beacom and his 1st wife moved west between 1830-1836 per Census and tax records. It is quite possible he was following his father-in-law and family. The only snag is that the unidentified daughter that is listed in the 1820 Census with Nicholas in Moore County, NC is also listed with him in the 1830 Census in Henderson, TN. While it is not impossible to be listed in two separate households in two separate states during the same year, it is less likely.

      My great grandfather was Hans Britt, son of Beacum and Debra. He died in 1941 when I was six years old but having lost his wife in 1935 he would live with various relatives. I remember when he would visit us. He had vivid memories of Beacum taking him at nine years old to the battlefield at Shiloh shortly after the battle. They lived in McNairy County, TN in 1862.

      He always said that Beacum was married to his mother's sister whose name was Dallie.
      Beacum and Dallie had either seven or ten children, depending on who you believe. I know Beacum and Debra had eleven children, my great uncle, John Britt, hans youngest son died in the early eighties and had a bible with their names.

      My dad said the family thought the world was coming to an end during the earthquake and returned to NC. According to local historians there were no white people in west Tn in 1811/1812 but I think that is incorrect. Grandpa Hans told of someone at age twelve, who I suspect was Beacum, travelling over the Smokies in a covered wagon pulled by two oxen. the time frame of the earthquake that formed Reelfoot Lake in NW Tennessee and Beacums age line up.
