    Notes 
    • Jesse Wallace [b. bef 1748] lived in the northwest section of Montgomery County on Mountain Creek [northwest of Eldorado and just east of Badin Lake Road]. Jesse was married to Susanna during the 1770s but it is unclear if she was his only wife or 1st wife. He can be found in Montgomery [formerly Anson] County records from 1769 until at least the early 1780s. There is a Jesse Wallace listed on the 1790 Census in Montgomery County and a few other land records but it is unclear if this is the same person.

      The family of Mary Wallace [#I34802] can be found in the same vicinity in the 1790s and it would seem that they are related. Mary's three sons [Isham, Nathan & Eli] later removed to western KY. It is possible that Mary was Jesse's widow or that she was the widow of one of his children but not enough information is known to be clear. Mary's son Eli died in Graves County, KY in 1855 and his Death Certificate listed his parents as E. & M. Wallace. If this is accurate then it is more likely that E. Wallace was a son or brother to Jesse. Unfortunately, this is pure speculation at this time.

      Also, the Jesse Walice [if we assume this is the same Jesse as the 1769 Petition Signer] listed in the 1790 Census [1M, 3F] does not seem to match up with the Mary Wallace listed in the 1800 Census [1F, 2M].

    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.

    Histories
    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.
