Jesse Taylor Wallace is the son of Jesse Rink Wallace, a U. S. Naval Officer, and Mary (Meridee) Darrow Taylor, and as such he lived in many locations as he was growing up. Born in Washington, DC, he later lived in a number of Southern California cities and Honolulu, HI, before moving to Pago Pago in American Samoa in 1940. He was still there in 1942 when a Japanese submarine fired its deck gun at the island. On returning to the U.S. mainland in early 1942 his family settled in Annapolis, MD, where they resided for about six months. Later they moved to Arlington, VA, where they resided from 1942 to 1946.

In 1946 the family moved again to Annapolis, MD, and resided at the US Naval Academy until 1949. In 1949 the family moved again, this time to Great Lakes Naval Base near North Chicago, IL. In 1952 his father retired from the Navy and the family moved to Milwaukee, WI.

Jesse called Milwaukee home from 1952, where he graduated from High School in 1954, and from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1958. In 1958 he married "the girl over the backyard fence" and continued to live in Milwaukee until 1961.

In 1961 he moved to the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. In 1970 he moved to Rochester, MN, where he has resided ever since. [1]

Thanks Jess for helping me get started! I see you have a Scottish surname (one of my primary interest areas). I don't have Wallace in my tree, but my wife does. Perhaps we can collaborate someday about Scottish clans!

just so you know, having the 1776 template on your profile is causing an error (847), since you were not born within the timespan covered by that project.

Thank you, Jess for your question

My family tree origins in Hungaria, where they used the surname Pocsai After moving my father to Slovakia, they wrote this surname Počai in case my father and my older brother and Počaji in my case and my younger brother.. It was kind of "mistype" in my birthday certificat So this is , how and why i follow more shapes of the surname of my ancestors..

Thank you, Jess! I have recently taken on updating our family history. Records have not been kept up since the late 1970's. But of course, it's easy to get caught up in chasing the past families and stories left behind. :) That being said, I am extremely new to all of this and it has left me a little overwhelmed. As far as my ties to the Wallace name; it is the oldest family name recorded in the information that I was given. When handed this info, I was boastfully told that we are related to Sir William Wallace, although I am having problems identifying that due to lack of records. So, to me, it is currently my family "myth". Ha! Thank you for the welcome, sir. :)
