The author in compiling this volume has depended
to a great extent upon friends and relatives of the
different branches of the family, among whom Wallace
Sigerson has furnished some very valuable facts in
a paper written in 1878.
The volume deals principally with the family of
John Wallace, my grandfather, as little is know ©f
the other branches.
Hoping that my efforts to compile and preserve
for future generations the record of the family will
be appreciated, 1 am
Yours truly, J. W.
SKETCHES OF EARLY HISTORY
The Wallace family is of Scotch descent, said to be descended
from the illustrious statesman and warrior, Sir William Wallace,
hero of "Scottish Chiefs''.
William Wallace came from Scotland or Ireland to the colony
of Virginia about 1730, and lived in Albemarle county, where his
family was born and reared. The family consisted of four sons,
and at least, one daughter, perhaps more, viz: John, William,
Michael, Josiah and Hannah (Woods). Nothing is known of the
families of William and Josiah.
Michael had one son, Michael, who settle in Madison county,
Kentucky, and died there. His widow removed with her family to
Decatur county, Indiana.
The only remaining members of the family are Mrs. Nancy Warden,
of Xenia, Ohio, and John A. Wallace, of Jefferson county, Indiana.
John A. Wallace raised a family of four children, John, Samuel,
Laura and Alice M. John resides near Madison, Indiana, and has
four children, three sons and one daughter. Samuel is a grocery-
man in Hanover, Indiana, and has four children, two sons and
two daughters. Laura (McMillan) died some years ago leaving one
son, John, who is now eighteen years of age, and is studying
dentistry. Alice M. is a teacher in the public schools in Hanover,
Collins' History of Kentucky gives the following thrilling
account of an adventure in the life of the sister, Hannah Woods:
"In the year 1784 or 1785, near the Crab Orchard, in Lincoln
county, a very singular adventure occurred at the home of a Mr.
Woods. One morning he left his family, consisting of a wife and
a daughter, not yet grown, and a lame negro man, and rode off to
a station near by, not expecting to return till night. Mrs. .Voods,
being a short distance from her cabin, was alarmed by discovering
several Indians advancing towards it. She instantly screamed
loudly, in order to give the alarm, and ran with utmost speed, in
hope of reaching the house before them. In this she succeeded, but
befiore she could close the door the foremost Indian had forced his
way into the house. He was instantly seized by the lame negro man
and, after a short scuffle, they both fell with violence, the negro
underneath. Mrs. Woods was too busily engaged in keeping the door
shut against the party without to attend to the combatants, but
the lame negro, holding the Indian tightly in his arms, called to
the young girl to take the axe from under the bed and dispatch
him by a blow on the head. She immediately attempted it, but the
first attempt was a failure. She repeated the blow and killed him.
"The other Indians were at the door trying to force it open
with their tomahawks. The negro rose and proposed to Mrs. Woods to
let in another and they would soon dispose of the whole of them in
the same manner.
"The cabin was but a short distance from the station, the
occupants of which having discovered the perilous situation of the
family, fired on the Indians and killed another, when the remair.<
made their escape."
John Wallace, the elder brother, was born in 1732, and lived
six miles from Monticello, Virginia. He came from there to Ken-
tucky in the spring of 1783, and stopped at Crab Orchard one year.
From there he, with his wife, (whose name was Whorry before marriage),
and children went to the north side of the Kentucky river and
settled in Jessamine county, about ten miles from Lexington. His
wife died there and was buried at Pisgah "Meeting House," in Wood-
ford county. Their family consisted of seven children, viz: Hannah,
Rosanna, Polly, John, Patsy, Thomas and Betsy. About the year 1800
he moved from Kentucky to Monroe, Ohio. In 1812, the family, under
the leadership of the eldest brother, John, moved to Wayne county,
Indiana, where John had entered land in the fall of 1811.
The family at that time consisted of the father, two sons, John
and Thomas, and one daughter, Betsy, all single. The war broke out,
and being only two miles from the Indian boundary lines, they were
in danger from Indian raids. The first summer Betsy was sent into
the older settlement on what was called the East Fork of Whitewater,
and lived in the family of a Mr. Hunt. The father lived until
about the year 1820. He was a member of the Presbyterian church,
and a soldier of the Revolutionary War. The powder horn carried
by him through the war is now in the possession of his grandson,
The family of Hannah Philips consisted of four children, William,
Polly, Sally and Jane. All are dead.
The family of Rosanna Stout consisted of four children, Mollie,
Susan, Nancy and an infant. But one living at last account.
The family of Polly Sigerson consisted of seven children, Je.
Wallace, Margaret (Reed), John, William, Mary, (died single), and
Nancy (Sunderland). Only two now living, William at Ocean Sprin ,
Mississippi, and Nancy in Burlington, Iowa.

The family of Patsy Cassaday consisted of six children,
Polly, William, Samuel, Betsy, Nancy and James. Only two now
living, Polly (Amnions) somewhere in Illinois, and Samuel at Mason,
He was a successful farmer, and for some months lived in the
neighborhood of Crawf ordsville, Indiana, where he took sick, of
measles and died, unmarried, about the year 1830, and as near as
can be ascertained, was about thirty-five years of age. At the
time of his death he owned the east half of the farm now belong-
ing to Isaac Kinsey.
Wallace Sigerson, in his account of him, says: "Of all the
young men 1 have known in a long life, he was preemminently the
Model Man. He was medium size, weight, summer and winter, 144
pounds. Physically, the best man of his size I have ever seen,
possessing an endurance that was unheard of in the country where
he lived. He has said he could never lift nor work hard enough
to tire him. In morals and religious character he had no equal
among men where he lived. In disposition, noble and generous
almost to a fault. He was a good neighbor, and would drop his
work, no matter how pressing, and go at their call. He commanded
the love and respect of all who knew him. He had been heard to
say if there was such a thing as fear, he had never experienced
it. He was never sick until he contracted the disease of which
The family of Betsy Dennis consisted of four children,
