Chuck-it is so good to hear from you. I have both books that you wrote years ago. What a wealth of information. I knew about the NC/ milita, but didn't realize that that part of NC became part of Tennesse once Tennessee became a state. Thanks for all the wonderful information you have shared with us over the years. That's a funny story about your Granddad being shot.

Take care cousin--Dave Wallace

An oversight on my part; Chuck Carter did a lot of work with Larry on the Wallace family album that you see online. I saw Bob Hurst's name in the Webster County history portion of it. It would be great if someone could track Uncle Tuck's family back to where they immigrated to the states though.

Carole Palmer, the Co-Ordinator of the Webste County, Kentucky KyGenWeb page, alotted us some of her bandwidth so that I could post some Wallace photographs that related to both Arkansas and Webster County, Kentucky.
If you have not viewed or seen those photo's, please stop by and look. There are 3 albums in all, labeled the Wallace Collection, Part I, II and III.
The link to the Wallace Collection, Part I is:
http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cpalm...
At the bottom of the page are links to the other 2 pages.
If you have any interesting family photographs that you think should be posted on that page, please contact me at:
[email protected]
Like I said previously, this is a group effort, as no one person can do it all. I really would love to share any and all information with any cousin, no matter how distant, as ultimately, we all are related.
Likewise, if you have any family photo's to share, please write.
Best to all,
Chuck Carter

Chuck; Pat (Larry's sister) has this huge picture of a ton of Wallaces in front of an old white house, with a little Wallace peaking out of each window. Maybe Larry can get this for you.

This discussion died a horrible death it appears. I was hoping to find out more about the Wallace family from it.

Like the Wallace family it just sort of died out. I grew up on TR's stories about his life and how he grew up. If half of them are true he was a rounder. Whiskers use to tell me fishing stories and tales about wildcats and bears. Life around Monette must have been pretty wild back in the early 1900's.

That is sad; there is so much history in this family and it is terribly interesting.

I remember seeing a picture of one of the older Wallaces with a pet wolf. I think he was either Tuck Wallace brother, but may have been a son. Believe his name was Bob Wallace. There is another story of how one of the older Wallaces chase a bear through the streets of Monette.

I am sure that Tuck was the one that ran the bear down main street in Monette, TR use to laugh about that story a lot. From what I always heard Tuck was a wild card. I think he liked to take a nip once in a while.

Tuck did like to partake of the spirits. My Dad
(R.D. son of Clarence) said that as youngsters he and Uncle Pat (P.D. Wallace), who was actually my cousin, would watch where Tuck would hid his home made wine and they'd "borrow" some.
Another one of my favorite stories that Dad (R.D.)
use to tell me was about the cemetery. Seems that he and Uncle Pat (roughly age 7-8) was walking back after dark to the old homeplace (near Danny Wallace's home)when they saw a erie white ghost trying to climb out of a grave. Dad ran one way and Uncle Pat ran the other to get away from the
"ghost". They figured out later that a grave had been dug earlier that day and a white goose had fallen into the grave and was trying to get out. I'm sitting here smiling remembering my Dad tell that story. lol

Hi Calvin,
We're over here in Leachville. Kelly Wallace is our daughter and Jason Wallace is our son.
Come by and see us some time. That goes for all the other Wallace's as well.

Hi Lisa,
I don't think we can tie our Wallace history back far enough to link in with ole Braveheart. The trail runs cold around Nashville Tennessee. There is a Samuel Wallace (revolutionary war era), but we don't really have any solid proof that we tie in with him. Good to talk with you Cuz. Life is good for this old soldier and my part of the Wallace clan.

Liza,
On second thought why not claim kin to him! Having seen a lot of the Wallace clan on the St Francis river from time to time I can proudly state that we can be as wild and crazy as any bunch of Scottish ancestors wearing blue paint on their face and dress in kilts. LOL
Let's just don't go so far as getting hung, drawn and quartered like our esteemed Ancestor did.:--)

For sure the Wallace clan has had some real hell raisers in the bunch, but to be fair so has most groups. What does a little bootlegging and whiskey making hurt?

OK let's do, from the stories I've heard and the things I've seen, it is fairly believable. I'll be in town in May, would love to come by to see your clan!

Looking forward to seeing you in May. Give us a call when you get in town, and we'll get together and share memories about the older Wallaces. See you then Lisa.

I am your cousin from sturgis and wheatcroft area.My G-Grandfather was William or Willie I understand he was known by. The stories are great!Our GG-Grandfather is Ben Pease Wallace as you know and is buried in the family cemetary just outside of Wheatcroft, along with GG-Grandmother, brother james who was killed in action along the ohio river in 1864. Their stones are in the cemetary. BP's is the only one still in original place. GGG-Grandfather and many other members are there as well as a nearby church cemetary. During the 1920's and a little before my G-Father lost his parents brothers and sisters (mostly due to T.B.)and also a daughter. My Dad Ben Harvey Wallace told me the reason they dodged the TB epidemic was due them having a farm away from Wheatcroft. Like around your area we've had a lot of girls and the Wallace name will soon be gone. The only wallace I knew of in Monette was Ira. I can't remember his sister's name right now, but I remember being told his son died in a car crash.Enjoyed reading your posts cousins.

<quoted text>They are still some there but a lot have passed on. Once it seemed about ever other person arond Monette was a Wallace or Cornish. Both families came to the area in the early 1800's and settled in what use to be called Wallace settlement just south of Monette. Also a lot of them had girls so the name sort of faded away.
Well that explains it. They're all inbread.
