Isabel Caswell-Wallace Obit. Ottawa, IL, Thursday, June 8, 1933

One of Ottawa's beloved and remaining links with the stirring and tragic days of the Civil War was broken at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon by the death of Miss Isabell Wallace, 75, of the North Bluff. The daughter of General and Mrs. W.H.L. Wallace.

Funeral services will take place at 2:30 tomorrow afternoon at the Wallace home, "The Oaks." Dean H.M. MacWhorter of Christ Episcopal Church of which Miss Wallace was a life-long member will officiate.

Burial will be made inthe private Wallace-Dickey Cemetery near the Wallace home, where General & Mrs. Wallace are buried. The members of the Ottawa Women's Relief Corps of which Miss Wallace was a charter member, will have charge of the services.

They will meet at the Odd Fellows hall at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon and the members who have autos are asked to bring them.

A Beloved Figure: The story of Miss Wallace, of her devotion to the memory of her soldier father and her gentle mother, also the daughter of a soldier. Colonel T.Lyle Dickey, is an epic in the history of Ottawa and LaSalle county.

Born in Ottawa on the north bluff, January 14, 1858, she was the daughter of General and Ann Dickey Wallace. When she was a baby two years old, her father started the erection of the old home in which Miss Wallace grew up.

NOTE: Miss Wallace was adopted by Gen. & Mrs. Wallace when she was about 2 years of age. Her original surname was "Caswell."
