    Notes 
    • Isham Wallace (1801-1882), the son of Everet and Caty/Catherine Wallace, married Nancy Furr (1806-1881) and is considered one of the mostly widely held common ancestors in upper Moore County. Isham, a lifelong farmer, lived on over 1100 acres of land in the Buffalo Creek/Meadow Branch area southeast of Robbins. Isham and Nancy as well as a large number of their descendants are buried, not far from their home, at Flint Hill Baptist Church

      Throughout the years, I was fascinated and amazed by the stories that my grandfather, Mallie Wallace, told about his ancestors. The Wallaces were known to be a rough and tumble crew, spending more time at the County Courthouse for drinking, fighting and so on as they did in church. Isham was always one of his favorite subjects. My grandfather was the grandson of Emsley Wallace and great grandson of Isham. An 1880 article in the Chatham Record depicted Isham and his family, much as my grandfather remembered: "in upper Moore County...an old man named Wallace is over eighty years old, straight as an Indian, six feet high, is capable of doing a good deal of work, has fifteen children living almost in sight of his house, and all of his descendants together amount to about 215 persons. Of the children, six are daughters and nine are sons, and their average height is six feet and their weight two hundred pounds and not one male among the entire family belong to any church."

      CHILDREN

      Isham and Nancy had the following children: Clarkey Ann (1820-1891), Elizabeth (1825-1871), Mary Ann (1826-1892), William Wesley (1828-1906), Sarah Ann (1830-1899), Quimby (1832-1895), Dempsey (1833-1839), Lockey (1836-1884), Emsley Thomas (1837-1918), Samuel Bascom (1841-1913), Loveday Jane (1844-1916), Sampson Delaney (1845- bet 1890-1900), Virgil Spinks 'Byrd' (1846-1917) and John M. (1850-1923). Among these children, most resided in close proximately of their parents and raised large families that are still located in upper Moore County. Their children intermarried with the neighboring Cockman, Melton, Hunsucker, Horner and Garner families.

      The three oldest daughters all married sons of John Cockman and Mary Richardson: Clarkey Ann Wallace married George Cockman, Elizabeth Wallace married J. Sampson Cockman, and Mary Ann Wallace married Noah Emsley Cockman, each Wallace and Cockman union produced at least ten children.

      William Wesley Wallace married twice and produced fourteen children. He first married Elizabeth Melton and later in life married Margaret Louise Seawell. After Wes' death, Lou moved the family to Greensboro.

      Sarah Ann Wallace married John Garner and raised a family of eleven.

      Quimby Wallace married Arabella Stewart and produced nine children.

      Dempsey Wallace died at the young age of six and is buried at Flint Hill.

      Lockey Wallace married Susan Muse and raised a family of seven.

      Emsley Wallace married Priscilla Melton, daughter of James Melton and Temperance Horner and sister to Elizabeth, Temperance, and Candace who married Emsley's brothers. Emsley and Priscilla went on to raise eight children.

      Samuel Bascom Wallace married Temperance Melton and produced ten children. Sam also married Nancy Smith later in life after Tempy passed away.

      Loveday Jane Wallace married James Washington Horner, son of George W. Horner and Mary Ann Ritter and raised a family of six.

      Sampson Delaney Wallace married Missouri Hunsucker and produced eight children. Laney was the only son of Isham to actively fight in the Civil War and became a local deputy sheriff after the war. Upon Laney's death, Missouri moved their family to Rockingham, NC where several of their descendants still reside.

      Virgil Spinks 'Byrd' Wallace was married twice, and produced a total of eighteen children. Byrd's first marriage was to Regina Hunsucker, daughter of George Hunsucker and Elizabeth Williams and sister to Missouri. Byrd's second marriage was to Flora Ann Garner, daughter of Stedman Garner and Ann Elizabeth Davis.

      John M. Wallace was married Candace Melton and had one son in NC. John later moved to Perry County, AR where he was elected as a Judge, was married four more times and produced at least 13 more children.

      "In one instance, a determined father stood down a squad of mounted militia officers sent to arrest him, because two of his sons were [hiding out] in the bushes. In a story related by Bryan Tyson [Object of the Administration, Page 7], the officers informed Isham Wallace, a resident of Moore County, that he must accompany them to their militia camp. Isham refused. When an officer started to dismount to arrest him, Isham warned him that he would shoot him dead before he touched the ground if that was the last thing he ever did. Rather than risk one of them being killed, the militia officers rode off, abandoning their effort to arrest Isham."

This is certainly an extraordinary page of family history."

    Everet Wallace
    Everet Wallace appeared for the very first time in the 1790 Census in Moore County, NC. Everet, appearing with his wife, Caty/Catherine and their infant daughter, Celia, were the only Wallaces recorded in the Moore County, NC Census that year. From his first appearance in the 1790 Census to his last in a Tax Record in 1844/1845, there are over 35 known references to Everet in Moore County, NC records. Among these records, Everet can be found entering land, paying taxes, serving on juries, testifying at trials, and purchasing goods at estate sales.

    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.

    Isham Wallace
    Isham Wallace, the son of Everet and Caty/Catherine Wallace, married Nancy Furr (1806-1881) and is considered one of the mostly widely held common ancestors in upper Moore County. Nancy was the daughter of Charles Furr and Nancy Sowell. Isham, a lifelong farmer, lived on over 1100 acres of land in the Buffalo Creek/Meadow Branch area southeast of Robbins (just east of the intersection of Hwy 24/27 and the Mt. Carmel Road). Isham and Nancy as well as a large number of their descendants are buried, not far from their home, at Flint Hill Baptist Church.

    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.
