Researching family history is fun and rewarding.

I started out researching my family tree out of curiosity and it turned into a regular hobby and one I hope to turn into a home business in the near future. I love searching and finding out where our families come from and have 2 lines, one on the Stephens that traced clear back to Noah and from there to Adam and Eve of course (if the information I found is correct). It made for an interesting journey to see the Biblical names of Moses, Aaron, David and Solomon etc in my family tree. It just goes to show, you never know where your ancestors come from.

It has also come to my attention that my Gr-Granddad R.C. Wallace, aka Cab, wanted his life story wrote. It seems he asked my Mom at one time to do it. It is hard to write about someone you know very little about, especially the past. I have good memories of my Gr-Granddad Wallace and wish I could have known him better. I did find his WW I draft card as well as where he was in a couple of Census, one stated he worked in Real Estate. I would love to know more about him and his past, if anyone has any stories that they would like to share please email me at Or you can write me at : Linda Carter, P.O. Box 266, Vega TX. Any help would be appreciated, and if anyone has any photo's of him when he was young, let me know how much you want for a copy of them. I only have one or two taken just before he passed away.

Finding 2 links to William Wallace (1274-1305) was a plus. Especially as one was on my Dad's side through his mother Dora Roseberry.  Then there are the blacksheep of course on the Stephens side. It is told my granddad's  father was in jail for 20 years, hence the 20 year difference between him and his older brothers and sisters. This was told by my grandmother and recently another relative verified the information.

I will add more information on the Wallaces and respected family lines as I can.

Other names are Ellis, Palmer, Adrian, McDonald, Campbells, Anderson, Adrian, Fleming, Woods, Seay, Murphree, Pace,Wallis(Wallace), seems there was a change in the spelling of the Wallace name to Wallis and back to Wallace.

If you have any you would like to add, just write. I will add a page just for other Wallace lines and their respective ancestors also.

Research Tips

Here I might put some tips about researching a family tree, for example:

Be sure to evaluate the source of your information. Remember, you can't believe everything you read!

Remember, most everyone has two family names: your father's, but also your mother's. Don't feel you must restrict your research to just your paternal family tree.
There may be more than one spelling of a name in a family as is in the Wallace tree. For whatever reason it was changed from Wallace to Wallis back to Wallace. So far it has proved interesting. I do not use exact dates as they can actually vary even when looking into the same person.  If there are any siblings, check them also, you never know what you may find going that route.
Sometimes it is hard to have information checked, and when I find more than one lineage to a person, I copy it down also. I have found 4 lineages claiming to be the parentage of Peter Wallace Sr. All the information on Peter Sr will be the same, but the parents are different. Amazing, and he isn't the only one I have come across this on. I just copy all so I can check it out later.
I have actually been able to locate draft cards for WWI for my Gr-Granddad Wallace and my Granddad Finis Glisson. I have been able to locate where they lived by having access to the Census records, birth records, death records etc. It has made it more interesting being able to search other records.
