This site is dedicated to and primarily contains the descendants of Everet Wallace (c1770-c1845) of Moore County, NC along with many of the related and allied families who lived nearby in upper Moore County.
I hope you will take a look at this 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 writing it all down and began 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.
Like all family researchers, I started out with the primary goal of learning more about a particular line of my family
- the Wallaces. In trying to obtain that goal, I've stumbled upon many roadblocks and dead ends. So when you can't go back
- go sideways. To further understand my ancestors, I've expanded my research to not only include the rest of my ancestral lines but to also include many of the families that lived in upper Moore County, NC as well. Chances are if your ancestors were from Moore County and lived northwest of Carthage, NC they are here. I've even mapped out over 1100 Land Grants encompassing over 250 square miles of territory in upper Moore County in an attempt to construct a small neighborhood for my ancestor Everet Wallace. While the information and the maps are great
- the records themselves contain thousands and thousands of hard-to-find references for Moore County residents and are indexed for ease of searching.
I've gone to great pains to insure that the data on this website is as accurate as possible. Please feel free to
contact me if you find an inaccuracy or just have a question. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you find something on this site that can help you in your own research. Don't forget to bookmark the site as I continue to update and add new information daily.
