    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.

      JAMES L. CARTER, one of the prosperous residents at Clinton, is the son of Lloyd and Annie (Wallace) Carter, and was born in Hickman County, Kentucky, August 28, 1849. His father was born in Tennessee and his mother in Graves County*. The paternal grandfather was JOHN CARTER, who came of English descent. The maternal grandfather was Nathan Wallace and was born in North Carolina.

      *NOTE BY CJB: The 1850, 1860, and 1880 census records of Hickman Co., KY, indicate that Anna Wallace was born in Tennessee. I was unable to find this family in the 1870 census.

      James L. Carter was reared and educated in Hickman County. His first work in life was on a farm, and he succeeded so well that he has since continued in this work, and also followed the trade of a carpenter.

      At present, he is the owner of four hundred acres of fine land, all in one tract. Starting out in life without capital, through energy, industry, and good management he has accumulated considerable of this world's goods, and gained the respect and esteem of all who know him. In politics, he is a Democrat. In his religious connections, he is a Methodist and gives liberally towards its support.

      In 1870, he was married to Miss Lucy Howell, who was born in Fulton County, Kentucky, a daughter of Gresham and Emeline (Baker) Howell. Mr. Howell was born in Tennessee and his wife in Kentucky. The paternal grandfather, Ransom Howell, was of Irish descent, but of the maternal grandfather, William Baker's lineage we have no definite knowledge. Her father was a Democrat in politics and a Methodist in religion. Both parents of Mrs. Carter are living, residing on the old homestead, aged seventy-seven and seventy-three years, respectively, and they have been married fifty-four years. Their children are as follows: Mary F., James W., Millie J. and Allie, all deceased; Lucy, Mrs. Carter; Julia, Mrs. John Carter; Helen, Mrs. Bloomer Nichols.

      The following children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Carter: Fannie, Mrs. John Craig; Wesley; Edwin; Wilkerson; Allie, Mrs. Thomas Fowler; an unnamed infant; Clarence; two unnamed infants; James L.; George B. deceased; an unnamed infant; Charles.

      Mr. and Mrs. Carter are well and favorably known in their community, and make their friends welcome at their pleasant home near Clinton.
