    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.

    The enclosed is a timeline and accounting of various Wallace references from Montgomery[Old Anson], Davidson[Old Rowan] and Randolph Counties. It has always been my belief that these families are close relatives of Everet Wallace of Moore County, NC but to date I have been unable to prove it.
