Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. Dr.Michael Wallace and his wife XXXXX XXXXX eloped from her home in Charles Co., MD because her father objected to their marriage. They settled in "Ellerslie" King George County Virginia. They had the following known children:
1. Unknown Infant b 111 Jul 1748 d date unknown. This would be your only chance that this was your Jonathan, but most historians indicate this baby was stillborn.
2. William Wallace b 20 Nov 1749 d 10 Jan 1750
3. Gustavus Brown Wallace b 09 Nov 1751
4. James wallace b 28 Sep 1755
5. XXXXX XXXXX Wallace b 26 Jul 1757
6. Rebecca Wallace b 1759
7. John Wallace (twin) b 19 Jan 1761
8 Thomas Wallace (twin) b 19 Jan 1761
I will look for other possibilities.
Good morning Schuyler,
I am unsure whether I should respond with Accept or wait until your response to my additional question. Not sure how this works. Thanks. XXXXX
No, please don't accept yet. My husband and I are at our mountain home for a few more days. Sadly, while everything else here is wonderful, the at&t wireless service is not and we haven't had internet from Saturday until now. None of the Stafford and King George records that I want are online anyway, so I will have to wait until I can get home and go to the library next week. If it is all right with you, I will continue looking for your Jonathan then.
Are you back from the mountains yet? And have you looked at any more records. So far, I'm not sure you are where this is with Just Answer. Thanks. Agnes
Yes, we got back Sunday, but I've had to work extra hard at my "real" job to catch up. I was off this afternoon and spent it at the genealogy library - just got home. All to no end. I found nothing in Spotsylvania (Fredericksburg was its county seat), Albemarle, King George, Orange, etc. pertaining to Jonathan or John Wallace. He is really a mystery. I did learn the name of Michael and XXXXX XXXXX Wallace's firstborn child who died. She was Rebecca Wallace b and d 11 Jul 1748. They recycled the name when they had another daughter in 1759. I'm so sorry, but it sometimes happens that there are just no records to find.
Thank you for your efforts. We are going to Scotland this summer and maybe I can do a little research while there. I also have some research going on in the Clans Archival Library in Florida, but information is very sketchy there. Maybe we all just appeared from "Nowhere". Again, thanks and if you come across anything, please let me know. I'm going to go ahead and accept so you can get paid. Best wishes. Agnes Williams
Thanks so much for the accept and the generous bonus. How I envy you! Scotland is my favorite vacation spot in the world. I hope you will be able to find your Jonathan while you are there.
I have heard again from the Clan Library in Florida. They are sending me additional information that indicates that Dr. Michael Wallace may be related to Jonathan. I'll be interested in seeing what that research says. Nevertheless, it seems to be a bit sketchy. Hope you have had a good week-end. By the way, two of my friends are Nurse Practioners and very smart. I think it takes something extra to do what you "girls" do! Agnes
You are too kind! I hope you will share what you learn with me. I am wondering if your Jonathan was a nephew of Dr. Wallace. He's too young to be a brother.
