Notes: "We do know that Docturn Wallis (1799-1874), wife Nancy King Wallis (1810-1888) and probably some of the older members of the clan arrived a few miles North West of Chesterfield (Henderson County, TN) near what is now the Reed Community, and settled there on Haley Creek. On this creek, they established the first and probably the only water mill ever owned and used in this section. At the mill they ground the grain produced by themselves and their neighbors. " (Note: This community was originally named "Lone Elm" but when the railroad was procuring right of way for the road, Phillip Walker Jrs son E. Washington Walker agreed to give the right of way across his large farm (nearly 20 acres) if the railroad would have a stop and build a station on his property. After the railroad was built (1888-1889) through the area, the center of the community moved two miles south to the train depot area and took its name Chesterfield from the name given the depot, reportedly after "Lord Chesterfield of England".
The post office was originally at "Lone Elm" then it to moved to"Chesterffield" where it remained until the Chesterfield Post Office (zip 38323) was closed 10 Oct 1975. We are now on a rural mail route from Lexington, TN (zip 38351)
Docturns wife, Nancy King, was the sister of Rebecca King, wife of Phillip Walker, who also settled in the Chesterfield Community. They were the daughters of Robert King, who died in Orange County NC.
"Being resourceful and self reliant seemed to be a Wallis family trait. The family home was established against a steep embankment in which they hollowed out a cave-like storage space. In the winter when Haleys Creek was frozen solid, they sawed out large blocks of ice and imbedded them in sawdust in their "cave". This lasted them til the next freezing spell. Thus the Wallaces had the luxury of refrigeration in the summer even at that early date. However, it was strictly for their own use. They never sold ice nor gave any away, except in case of sickness, then, the Wallaces proved themselves to be good neighbors who came to the rescue and helped to cool the feverish brows of the ill."
"The family was also skilled carpenters and built homes a little above the average for themselves. A few specimens of their handiwork still stand many years later. From what we know of the Wallaces, they were assets to any community. Their business and church affiliations were with the growing Chesterfield Community, and many of the later members of the family continued to live and die in Chesterfield. The family was known to have been affiliated with different Christian denomination, Methodist, Baptist and Presbyterians in the area."
"All that remains to mark the old home-place are the large trees, the creek (long since run dry), and the family cemetery in which we find the monuments of Docturn and Nancy, and their son Jacob Wallis (1823-1886) and wife Elizabeth (died 1894). Also there is a grave of another well remembered pioneer citizen, Henderson Derryberry. Although this cemetery is isolated and is surrounded by weeds and pasture land, the several monuments therein have been nicely restored and the cemetery is enclosed with a beautiful and modern chain link fence."
"This Wallis family were Northern Sympathizers during the Civil War and three sons of Docturn and Nancy Wallis, (John, William and Robert Russell) fought for the North. Their son Robert Russell was a prisoner but returned to his family at the close of the war. Note: I have no additional information on these children.
Docturn and Nancy also had son Jacob Wallis (1823-1886) who married Elizabeth(Besty) A. Derryberry (1828-1894) and they had the following Children: William Bateman Wallace (1849-1928) and he had two sons, Martin, Vinson and one daughter Flora.
Martin Wallace had two sons Max and Waldo, two daughters Marie (Wallace)Wilson and Mary (Wallace) Cox. Note: I remember Mr. Martin Wallace and his children who were our neighbors when I was a boy and Waldo who lived in Lexington, TN only died a few years ago and as far as I know the other children are still living.

Spouse Notes: Family tradition is that there was a daughter named Martha in this family. She may have died early, as no record has been found of her real existence. A search of the marriage records for Orange County has not provided any clues to a possible marriage for her.
In the 1850 Census, there were two children, Mary and Julia Wallace, ages 8 and 6 respectively. There is also an Eliza King, age 5, who is also a resident of the household. It is a possibility that Martha was married to a Wallace, and then to a King, and these are her children. There is no other explanation at this time (2003) for who these children are.
This researcher believes that the Julia in this household is the same Julia Ann Wallace who became the wife of Henry Clay King, son of Alvis King and his wife Mary Fossett.(Faucette) Some of the Faucette family did have connections to Miles Wallis(Wallace) step-son of Hardy Hurdle, Jr. of Chowan County and Orange County, NC. Hardy Hurdle was first married to Mary Wallis, mother of Miles and William Wallis and who was mother to several of Hardy's children: Sarah and Mildred "Milly" Hurdle. Sarah Hurdle was wife to John McCulley; and they were the parents of William McCulley who married Charity Garrison, daughter of Levi Garrison and Mary Graham, sister to George. Hardy Hurdle, Jr. was married second to Christian Outlaw of Gates County, NC.
