Daughter of William Richard and Rosetta Ann Sevier Wallace.

Mary was the wife of a Baldwin family member and close neighbors of my grandparents, Earnest & Edna Miller who lived west of La Plata, Mo. My mother & I visited them often. I rode my horses to her farm and played with her children many times. I miss the great times we had growing up.
