About the BCGHC
Disclaimer (please read!)
The entrance to Wallace Cemetery is almost opposite the entrance to
Sylvania Hills Memorial Park, but the cemetery itself is some distance
back from the highway, by a paved road part of the way and then down a
lane to a house near the cemetery. There were two separate lists of monument
inscriptions for Wallace Cemetery in the files of the Research Center.
One was by Martin Langnecker in July of 1936; the other was from the material
of Helen Patterson. Since there were differences between these two lists,
any material on the Patterson list that differed from the Langnecker list
was enclosed in brackets [ ]
Notes From the Patterson File
Note the record for Mary, wife of George Porter. I feel sure this must be the Pauly Porter, daughter of James and Elenor Wallce. he must have meant Polly Porter, or Mary Porter. This Mary died in 1861 and James Wallace in 1867.
Note the James A. Brewer. In Warner's (County History) p. 754 James A. Brewer married, 1842, Jenie, daughter of Robert Moore. As they are buried in the Wallace Cemetery, I would judge that the Jennie Moore was the daughter of Robert Moore and Jane Wallace, daughter of William Wallace and Mary McClelland. This James A. Brewer was a brother of McPherson Brewer, great grandfather of Anna (Abbot) Patterson. It is probable that the Elias Brewer should be shown as born in 1850 rather than 1860 if he is the son shown in the 1850 census. Of course this could be another by the name, as every family had one by the name of Elias for the father of James A. and McPherson and others.
Wlliam Wallace. From a comparison with census records, he was evidently
80 years old when he died, rather than 90. In 1850, William and Jane were
both given as 47, and in 1880 as 77.
