About Marion W. Wallace

PROS/CURATORS - Please contact the manager before merging or altering this profile.

Marion Wallace was born in Warren county, Illinois in the city of Monmouth, January 1, 1848 to James A. Wallace and his wife Irene,formerly Irene Daniels. He was the second of second of six children and was four years old when the journey was made across the plains in 1852. (Source 1, Source 3) The journey was not easy crossing the plains with ox-teams and one pony, nearly all of which perished upon the journey.

Since that time he has been a constant resident of Lane county, reared to manhood upon the paternal farm and trained to an agricultural life. He remained at home until 1875, engaged in farming with his father, when he married Nancy M. Vaughan and located on another portion of the home place, where he continued successfully following agricultural pursuits until 1893. At that date he located in Natron and opened a blacksmith shop, combined with which work he also repairs wagons, and conducts a feed-chopper. He now owns two hundred acres of land in addition to his interests in the town of Natron. In politics he adheres to the principles advocated by the Republican party, but has never cared to' hold office. He is a member of the Order of Lions. The children which have blessed the union of himself and wife are as follows : Myron L. ; Clara May, wife of Levi Castleman ; Marion G. and Melvin W., who are twins ; James A. ; Daniel W. ; Nannie E ; and Georgia M. (Source 1)

Marion passed away on 27 Feb 1924 and is buried in the Wallace Pioneer Cemetery. (Source 2)
