RE: Ellen Dent (1818 - 1903
I went ahead and changed the dates to 1838. I will try to do some further research on James but I don't have much hope on finding anything. His parents are in my husband's tree but James isn't.

RE: Ellen Dent (1818 - 1903
I didn't create the memorial so I'm not sure where the original information came from. I often have trouble distinguishing 3's from 8's in these old stones. Do you think the year could be 1838 and not 1888? Do you live nearby. Is it possible you could go look in person and let me know what the stone says? I can't read it in the photo.

Thank you!

The name for Memorial# 10761614 should be Celina Maddox. I am sure the stone is so old and worn that the name is hard to read. She also went by Salina in census records. Her husband, Edward R. is also buried in Spring Hill. Her maiden name was Wood, but have not been able to find her parents or a birth certificate. Maybe changing her name will give some family member an idea. Thanks

Wallace Family Members
Dear Connie,
Please transfer Memorial #: 36440818 - William C. Wallace
Valley Cemetery
Spencer County
Kentucky, USA

William C. Wallace was the brother of Samuel Anderson Wallace, Jr. and Kathryn (Wallace) Beach Fite

Please transfer Memorial #: 39313691
Valley Cemetery
Spencer County
Kentucky, USA
This monument has three names appearring on it. All three are kin to me through my maternal lines.
Samuel Anderson Wallace, Jr. (1859 - 1944)
Alice M. Wallace (1864 - 1941) - wife of Samuel Anderson Wallace, Jr.
Ruth Carlin Wallace (1901 - 1940) - daughter of Samuel Anderson Wallace, Jr. and his wife Alice Mae (Lloyd) Wallace.
Please note that Samuel Anderson Wallace, Jr. is the brother of my great-grandmother Kathyn (Wallace) Beach and William C. Wallace that is listed above:

Birth: Apr. 11, 1863
Spencer County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Mar. 4, 1929

Sara Catherine "Kathryn" (Wallace) Beach (1883-1929)
Sara Catherine "Kathryn" (Wallace) Beach was born Aprill 11, 1883 in Taylorsville, Spencer County, Kentucky. She was the daughter of Cecilia (Durham) & Samuel Anderson Wallace, Sr.. She is pictured here wearing her Cameo. This cameo has been worn by many brides and has become a family tradition.
Kathryn has several Texas heroes in her family. Her paternal Uncle 1st Sgt. William C. Wallace died in battle on March 16, 1836 at the Refugio Mission while attempting to rescue trapped civilians. Her Uncle William had gone to Texas with his Cousin 3rd Sgt. Samuel P. Wallace, and distant Wallace kin Maj. Benjamin C. Wallace to fight in the War for Texas Independence. Samuel and Benjamin Wallace were massacred by order of Mexican General Santa Anna on Palm Sunday, March 27, 1836 at the Presidio La Bahia (Fort Goliad) along with 400 others. The news of their deaths and those of the men at the Alamo reached the home of Samuel's family in Lexington, Virginia. Samuel's younger brother William Alexander Anderson Wallace came to Texas to seek revenge and take up the cause of Texas freedom. He arrived after the Texan Victory at San Jacinto but liked Texas and accepted the land grant his brother Samuel had earned by fighting. William became known as 'Big Foot' Wallace and became a famous Frontiersman, soldier and one of the original Texas Rangers. All the Wallace Texas heroes were buried with honors and have monuments in the Texas State Cemetary in Austin. All of the Wallace kin can be traced back to the their ancestor, 13th century Scottish hero, Sir William Wallace (Circa 1260-1305) and Scottish King Robert Bruce. General Lew Wallace who authored BEN-HUR; A TALE OF CHRIST is found in this lineage as well.
Sara Catherine 'Kathryn' (Wallace) Beach (April 11, 1863 - March 4, 1929)

The following article appeared in the Gonzales Inquirer on February 26, 1881:

Married, at the residence of the bride's sister in Houston, on Thursday, February 21, 1881, Dr. LeRoy L. Beach, of Houston, to Miss Katie Wallace, of Louisville, Kentucky.
Such are the few words telling that our friend and former co-laborer has left our rank and joined the benedicties. In many relations, and in propositions and surroundings well calculated to reveal a man's true nature, we have known Doctor Beach intimately and have believed him one of the finest met we ever knew. He had our fullest trust and confidence, and it was never dishonored. This was his home for many years and here he has numerous friends and admirers. For several years he was connected with The Inquirer as co-editor and proprietor. Our heart goes out in its best strength to him and his bride, who is a total stranger to us, and we heartily re-echo the sentiment expressed by a confrere:
"Fate has garlanded the chaplet of our friend with one of the fairest and sweetest flowers that bloom in the parterre of beauty, whose fragrance will impregnate with a redolence every impulse of his generous heart. The brightest star that radiates the galaxy of fascinating women shines upon and illuminates his pathway with her bland smile and alluring light, whose resplendent refulgence, glowing with undimmed lustre each revolving season, will pilot the victory of so estimable a prize to a haven of happiness. Many joys and blessings as exquisite and hallowed as those engendered by a shower of roses scattered down by the hands of the Peri from the far off gardens of Paradise crown their wedded future and increase with lapse of time."
She had a postcard collection and was a poetry buff.
The widow Beach married Edgar Fite.

Bio and Links
I have been working with my family's history and genealogy for over twenty years. The family lines are Smith, Beach of Connecticut to Texas, Wallace from Virginia to Kentucky and Texas, Sparks, Miers and Johnson from Mississippi to Texas. Casey in Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma. Other allied names as well.
Find A Grave is a very helpful tool to share information with others with similiar pursuits.
The Story Teller
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but instead breathing life into all those who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe. All tribes have one. We have been called, as it were, by our genes. Those who have gone before cry out to us, "Tell our story". - Unknown


I will be requesting more memorials of the same family in the near future.

Hi Conni - I can't prove who Elizabeth belongs to but since she is buried with the other Foreman's, I'd think she is one of theirs. If you wish to transfer her, I will try to connect her to one of them. Thanks for the transfers. Roberta

Happy Summer
Hi Conni- I just wanted to wish you a happy summer! I know I have not been able to get to much research lately, and have started on the Franklin-Rodney lines again, after a horrendous work year of 12-14 hr work days. Much needed summer off work and I am going to get busy working at my passion of family history :)

I have sent in a link to Sarah J. Rodney Franklin (#10744849) dau of Michael and Caroline, and the link is for her husband Harvey Cook Franklin, #28758799. Harvey is son of Elisha, and I have linked him to his parents. The linking is taking forever! haha!

Hope you are doing well. I will email you soon!

Cheers from Edmonds, WA!
