I heard the same thing from my Dad (R.D.) Joe. The story he told me was that Benjamin
(father of Tuck and the others) killed a man on the streets of Sturgis or Wheatcroft immediately following the Civil War.

That was the same story I always heard from TR and others. TR told me the guy was a carpetbagger and after the killing the clan moved to Arkansas. All my life TR never went anywhere without his .38 tucked in his overalls.

The story was told that Uncle Tuck had a son, little Tuck, that killed a man somewhere near the Wallace community. I suppose they were a rough bunch in rough times.

Please remove this post. This was an interesting discussion about a historical family in Monette, not a forum on someone's sensuality.

The only thing I know to do is to Flag for Review. I did. Don't know if you also did the same. I don't enter Credit Info. into my computer. I was wondering about the post but I was only reading because it was interesting History info. on Monette. Good Luck.

Perhaps with the exception of this one off beat comment someone can continue the jest of this conversation.

Hi Cousins,
Our part of the clan had a wonderful Christmas. Jason and Kelly were home quite a bit over the holidays.
I know that our family history traces back to Sturgis/Wheatcroft Ky thru Hopkinsville/Nashville and hits a dead end back in North Carolina with the N. Carolina information being sketchy. Does anyone know much about the family's time in N. Carolina?

Thats the right place in Ky, I don't know about the Sir William Wallace part. Elmers wife Vivian once told me that some of the Wallace clan got into trouble back in Ky. right after the civil war and moved to what is now Monette area. From what I grew up hearing about Uncle Tuck there is no telling what went on.
Robert T. Wallace ("Uncle Bob"), older brother of John Daniel ("Uncle Tuck"), was the Sheriff & Coroner of Webster Co., Kentucky 1881-1882. The story has been told to me by some of our older cousins, still living in Kentucky, that Robert T. Wallce found one of the men who had been involved in beating his father, Benjamin P. Wallace back in 1870. It was as a result of injuries from the beating that Ben P. Wallace ultimately died. Anyway, they told me that Robert T. Wallace, took some "street justice" on the alleged offender.
With that, Robert T. Wallace and family immediately left Kentucky, settling initially in Howell Co., Missouri and then moving on to settle in N/E Arkansas

David, we're still pretty much at the same "dead end" we were at, the last time I had an opportunity to talk with you back in 1996.

The first "factual" findings we have of the family is Sarah, already a widow, moving with her children: Benjamin, James, Mary, Rebecca, Sarah and Elijah around 1797, when she filed a claim for a land grant with the State of Kentucky.

Sarah granted permission for her daughter, Mary Wallace to marry John Dodge 31 August 1799, in Christian Co., Kentucky. Joseph Kuykendall signed a Surety on said Marriage Bond.

From that point in time, the family left a paper trail, that any blind person could easily read, but prior to then.......... it is really sketchy and more research need to done.

Larry and Bob Hurst were always the researchers. I wonder if they ever came up with anything else?

I'd always, growing up, heard stories about Jeff and some of the others beating the crap out of some offensive person on the streets of Monette; must have been one tough bunch. Of course some of us are just plain nuts I guess; Jimmy; Joner's son, killed his wife somewhere in Missouri for dancing with another man. I suppose it happens in all families, though the Wallace clan seems to be very colorful.

Larry and I have communicated extensively both in person, on the phone, by mail and via email.
Lary & Kaye, myself and Sherryl Miller orgainized the Wallace Reunion there in Monette in 1996. I wrote a book on the Wallace Family, and we (jointly) helped organize the Wallace Family Association. I was the President of the WFA, 1997, 1998 & 1999. During that time, we also held annual reunions in Kentucky during that period of time.
I'm not trying to blow my own horn, but your statement that "Larry and Bob Hurst were always the researchers", is not necessarily a fact. As Larry & I worked very closely together, along with another of our cousins, Carolyn Wallace-Chilton, who lives in Texas. Bob Hurst provided information that was of value, but we also provided information to Bob.
I am still researching, after 16 years. Nothing that I have found is original, nor do I have any intellectual rights, as it was all provided by family members (like you), from their heart in an effort to preserve the rich history & heritage that our branch of the family has.
We know that Samuel Wallace died somewhere near Nashboro (present day Nashville). We (mean Faye Dearing-Barr, another one of those researchers who passed on back in the 1970's after more than 50 years research) found in the North Carolina archives, a document which certifies the Military service of on, Samuel Wallace, in service to the North Carolina Milita in Sumner County ( Sumner County in now in present day Tennessee, but at the time of the War, what is not the State of Tennessee was part of North Carolina ) anyway, it records a monetary award to Samuel Wallace for his service to his state during the war.
We know that Samuel & Sarah were in Tennessee and approximately when & where he died. The circumstances are as of yet, unknown, BUT and that is the BIG BIT......... Is this the same Samuel Wallace? Faye Dearing-Barr, wanted to believe it was but there are those of us, Larry included, who say that it would be nice to believe, but what facts or proof do we have? Right now, none, so it could in fact be another Samuel Wallace and not ours.
I would love to dialoge more with any interested researcher, or if you have any information to fill in the blanks in some of our other branches of the tree which still need to be leafed out.

My mother told me of an instance when she was a small girl. They attended a church function, there in Monette, and the Pastor asked "Who is a Wallace, or who are related to the Wallace's" ? She said that 90% of the Church stood up!

This is all for tonight.

My Grandfather was my Hero!(Charley Clinton Wallace). I was the ONLY Male Grandchild for the first 18 years of my life! The question to you is: Was I spoiled???

I miss my Grandfather much! I wish he was still here. He used to talk to me about his youth and growing up in Monette. I only wish that I had listened closer to him.

As a boy, I was AMAZED by the stories he told!! As a Teen, I was, Ohhhhhh how should you say, "Yeah, Grandpa, what ever you say!" And relegated it to "BS stories".

Now that I am grown, he is gone and I have started to research our family, I find that many of the stories he told were not BS, but founded in FACT! My lament is: " Granapa, I wish I had listened closer to you!"

He used to tell me a story and then let me feel a lump in his chin. He told me that one of his boyhood friends had shot him in the chin with a shotgun. Then I would feel his chin and feel the small lumps still in his gaw!!

Apparently, there was some rivalry over a girl. The kid told Grandpa he would shoot him if he caught him cavorting with the girl of his dreams. Well, the long and the short of it, the guy shot Granpa in the face. Grandad said he chased the guy for what he thought was miles but never caught him. Those many years later, he said he was glad he never did. Reason: He said he would have killed him and he could never have lived with himself if he had.

Side track: My Paternal grandfather, abandoned my Dad when Dad was a small boy...... The ONLY Grandfather I ever knew, was Charley Clinton Wallace. Like I said, I was his ONLY male grandchild for the first 18 years of my life. I loved him and still do to this day. He was and still is my Hero!

For his memory and for that reason, I research the family that has meant more to me than that of my sur-name.

Chuck
