Afternoon Sandi, in reference to your Wallace Tag, I haven't seen the first two books you refer to above.

That said to save a little time for you, I' ve been in contact with Cecilia Becker with her intense research of Peter Wallace and his crew circa 1600.

The only two sons John and James are incomplete in their whereabouts and history, If you have more info on those two young men, that would be great.

Now my line briefly with the two "Walls" we've been at for ten years plus:

John Wallace b.1750, d. 1782 m. Elizabeth McClelland, had son, my GGGrandfather, Hugh McClelland Wallace b. 14 Aug 1778 in VA, d. 15 Feb 1864, and Hugh's son John H, in a 1880 census stated his father was born in VA.

And herein lies the questions, where in VA was Hugh's birth, and where was his father John born.

One other tidbit, Hugh returned from Clark Co, OH in 1801 to Smiths Grove, Warren Co. KY, to settle his father John's estate, with no outcome documented, so John, Hugh, and Hugh's wife Margaret, all had separate acreage prior to 1800.

My apparent cause of the puzzles is KY broke away from VA mid 1770(not sure of exact dates), adding to where and when the poor souls were born.

Any assistance from you and your books, and others reading this post, woul be greatly appreciated.

Respectfully,

William
