The services were conducted by Rev. C. H. Dickinson and the burial was in the Center Street cemetery.

New Haven Register 1/5/1892
The will of Robert Wallace was read at his home yesterday afternoon to his heirs. It was a surprise to most of them. It is understood that the bulk of his estate, consisting of a majority of the stock of R. Wallace & Sons Manufacturing company, is so fixed that it cannot be sold or otherwise disposed and fixing so far as he could its management in the future. It will probated some day this week.
