    Notes 
    • William Wallace [1791/1800-1843] was married to Chaney Berry Cranford and lived most of his life near the Uwharrie River and Ophir in Montgomery County, NC. Many of their children migrated to western KY and can be found residing among and intermarrying with the descendants of the other Wallaces from the nearby area. While we do not know the idenity of William's parents, it is my belief that William was not a sibling to the Isham, Nathan and Eli Wallaces of Graves and Calloway County, KY but more likely a first cousin. It has been passed down through William's descendants that his siblings were Harbard/Harbart Wallace [1796-1872], Ann Wallace [1803-1900], and Elizabeth 'Betsy' Wallace [1800-1905]. Harbert also moved his family to Graves County, KY in the 1830's while Ann married William Hall and remained in Montgomery County, NC. Betsy married Phillip Hagler and lived most of her life in neighboring Stanly County, NC.

    Beyond Everet Wallace
    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.

      Two descendants of William Wallace [1791/1800-1843] of Montgomery County, NC have tested 37 markers. Larry Wallace descends from William > James Alvis Wallace > Chisholm Clark Wallace > Claude Clark Wallace [Larry?s grandfather]. Kurt Wallace, another descendant of William Wallace via son Alexander Clark Wallace [migrated from Montgomery, NC to Graves County, KY] > E. Milton Wallace > Herman S. Wallace [Kurt?s grandfather] recently tested 37 markers as well. The results were pretty fascinating as Larry and Kurt?s 37 marker test results closely match a number of Wallaces throughout the country who either trace their ancestry back to Scotch-Irishmen James Wallace [1690-1748] and wife Elizabeth Campbell or Peter Wallace, Sr. [1680-1723] and wife Elizabeth Woods. The connection between James and Peter Sr. has not been established but a number of their descendants share similar Y-DNA. Many of their children immigrated to America and based on the timeframe it is likely that William Wallace was a great-grandson of one of these men. More research is needed to determine the connection but it is possible that William?s father lived in Rowan County, NC and his father came from MD/VA to NC.
