It is said at one time Raymond Cabbott Wallace had disappeared and his wife, Nevada had thought him dead, remarried and had a son name Jimmy. However.  Raymond C. (Cab) Wallace returned to find his wife married to another man. He is said to packed up his family, and moved them to Az raising Jimmy as his own until his death at age 6.

I have been told the family home is no longer on the property in Coolidge Az. I had many fun hours there growing up.

Where the person "fits" in our family tree: Raymond Cabott (Cab) Wallace is my great-grandfather.

Sources:  word of mouth by my Grandmother Ceola Wallace Stephens Bone and my Gr-Grandmother Nevada's Bible which records the names and birthdates of all 10 children as well as birthplaces. The birthplace for Ceola however is not listed but she is said to have been born in Stroud, Ok.

I have a couple when he was 96 years old, I am unable to post them at this time.

Memories and Stories

I remember going to his house in Coolidge Az as I was growing up and climbing the tree in his yard. My brother and I also found a place that was dug underground where I found out my Mom and cousins used to play.

Using an outhouse was an interesting thing as a kid. Never saw a bathroom not hooked up to the house.  However, Granddad Bone built an addition to the house hooking it to the ourhouse, even had a tub in it...

The house was also located close to a railroad track, which as a child, scared me when the trains went by. My brother and I also found an underground cave where we played until Gr-Granddad Cab told us to stay out of it. We were fortunate it didn't cave in on us when we were in the thing.

He used to take me out to his shed's and show me his rocks etc. I don't think he let anyone else near them from what Mom told me.

My Great-Granddad was a character and I am glad I had the chance to get to know him. He could tell a story, must be a Wallace tradition or talent.

If this family member has a web page or e-mail address of their own, I might include the address here.
