    Notes 
    • While I do not have concrete proof of this family I have listed it as I feel that there are a number of facts pointing in this direction. This connection is an assumption based on the following:

      *Mary Wallace (45+) and Isham Wallace (16-26) are living next door to each other in the 1800 Montgomery County, NC Census.

      *Mary has two sons listed in her household (10-16) & (16-26).

      *Eli Wallace (1790-1855) listed his birthplace as Montgomery County, NC on his Graves County, KY Death Certificate.

      *Eli Wallace listed his parents as E. Wallace and M. Wallace on his Death Certificate

      * Eli Wallace was granted 30 acres in Montgomery County in 1826 adjoining his own 200 acre tract that was originally purchased by Mary Wallace from John Morris in 1794

      *Nathan Wallace (1785-aft 1850) was also listed as having been born in NC and in 1850 was living next door to Isham's son Isham (b. 1804) in Graves County, KY.

      *All three of these men migrate to western KY in the 1820s and 1830s and lived very closely to each other.

      *This family also seems closely related to another group of Wallaces from Montgomery County. William Wallace (b. 1791-1800), Harbard/Harbart Wallace (b.1796), Elizabeth "Betsy" Wallace Hagler (b. 1800) and Ann Wallace Hall (b. 1803). A number of William's children migrated to western KY as did Harbard/Harbart and family. They lived in the same communities as the Wallaces above and their descendants intermarried. While we do not know the identity of their parents, multiple lines descending from these children have passed down orally that the four of them were indeed siblings.

    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.
