  • Name Delphy Lakey 
    Gender Female 
    Notes 
    • *Note Only circumstantial evidence points to Delphy Lakey being the mother of Josiah and Celia Wallace.

      William L. Wallace was involved in several court cases with Delphy Lakey, Elizabeth Smith & Mary Davis in the early 1840's. It has been passed down through family history that these court cases were in regards to William L. Wallace living with more than one woman at one time. It was ruled that he must marry one or he would go to jail. He married Elizabeth Smith.

      In additional evidence supporting Delphy Lakey as the mother of William J. and Celis - In April 1857, Celia Wallace (daughter of William Lane) was listed as Cela Lakey on a bastardy bond court record.

      1841, Fall -- Superior Court Execution Docket, Moore County, NC
      Daniel Muse v. Isham Wallace
      Delphy Wallace was listed as a witness

      1841, Fall -- Recognizance Docket, Moore County, NC
      State v. Polly Campbell, Celia Mainer, Delphy Lakey, Betsy Smith, George Hunsucker merchant, William L. Wallace

      1842, Spring -- Recognizance Docket, Moore County, NC
      State v. Polly Campbell, Celia Mainer, Delphy Lakey, Betsy Smith

      1844, Spring -- Superior Court Execution Docket, Moore County, NC
      State v. Polly Campbell & Celia Mainer
      Delphy Wallace was listed as a witness

      Delphy Lakey is not listed in any census that I have found, but a bastardy bond listed in the Moore County Court Minutes in April 1857 lists Devotion Davis as the father and Celia Lakey as the Mother. This is the Celia that is reported to be William L. Wallace's daughter.

      Again, this is only speculation at this point.
