I am researching the Wallaces of Moore County, NC and their allied and related families.

Everet Wallace (c1770-c1845) was the first Wallace to appear on a public record in Moore County, NC and appeared for the very first time in the 1790 Moore County Census. Throughout his adult life, Everet and his family resided in upper Moore County, on Flag Creek, a tributary of Bear Creek near the present day Robbins’ Crossroads at the intersection of Hwy 24-27 & Hwy 705. From his first appearance in the 1790 Census to his last in a Tax Record in 1845, Everet can be found frequently in the records of Moore County. Everet can be found entering land, serving on juries, testifying at trials, and purchasing goods at estate sales. His wife, Catherine or Caty can only be found on a Tax Record from 1846. Unfortunately, no record has been found to suggest what Catherine’s maiden name might have been. There has been much speculation, but none that offer any substantive proof.

He and Catherine were known to have raised at least twelve children during their lifetime. Among their known children were Celia, Nicholas, Joseph, John, Nathan C., Isham, Josiah, Elizabeth, Enoch, Franey, Manda and Susannah. Other possible children include William Lane and Aaron – these are clearly related to Everet but conclusive proof has not been found to establish them as definite children or grandchildren.

I hope you will take a look at my website and possibly find a connection. My grandfather, Mallie Wallace, loved his family and all of the stories about them. Growing up we would spend hours listening to the stories that had been passed down to him and the ones he had lived himself. Over 25 years ago, he and I started formally researching the Wallaces and other Moore County families. He passed away in 2002 at 92 years old but will live on forever in our hearts and memories.

I hope that you find this information helpful in your own research. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you find an error - I try to be as accurate as possible.
