    Notes 
    • When Leonard Harris Wallace and his brother, William P. Wallace, left home to enlist in the army at Troy, Montgomery County, NC, they made a vow to each other and to their mother that, if either was killed in service, the other would take the body back to the family home for burial. After saying good-by to their family, the two boys began playing their guitars as they walked down the road toward the county seat ( this story was related to Allen Wallace by Mrs. Addie Bethel Reeves).
      It is not known whether the vow was kept. Records show that William P. Wallace was on furlough from February 10, 1862 to March 19, 1862. It is possible but unlikely that he did at that time return the body of Leonard Harris to their home. (from the work of Allen Wallace)
