    The enclosed is a timeline and accounting of various Wallace families in Western Kentucky. Many of these families migrated to western Ky during the 1820's/1830's from Montgomery, Davidson and Rowan 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.
