      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 time frame 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.
