A Reminiscent History of the Ozark Region, 1894, pg. 252-253. In the biography of James Small, M.D., son of Rev. James Small, it states:
He was born in McMinn County, East Tennessee, October 28, 1841, a son of James and Mary A. (Wallace) Small, the former of whom was born in Kentucky about the year 1802. He was minister of the Missionary Baptist Church for many years, and from 1854 until his death in 1861 resided in Dade County, MO. He and his wife were married in Kentucky, lived there for some time, then removed to Tennessee, and from there to Missouri in the above-mentioned year. In addition to his ministerial duties the father also followed agricultural pursuits, and was highly honored in the section in which he lived. He was a Republican politically. His father, Thomas H. Small, was born in Scotland, and came to the United States prior to the Revolution, in which struggle he and a brother participated. The early home of the Small family was in Virginia, but Thomas H. became one of the early pioneers of Kentucky.
The maternal grandfather, George Wallace, was also born in Scotland, and took part in the war of the Revolutin, was bounded in Battle and afterward became a persioner of the Government. He died in Kentucky. His daughter, Mrs. Small, died in Dade County, MO, in 1865, after having become the mother of ten children, seven of whom are living...."
[Research notes--errors in the above: The father of Mary Ann Wallace is John Wallace. Thomas H. Small wasn't born in Scotland. James died in 1865 and Mary Ann in 1868.]
