William (2) Wallace married Dec. 15, 1673, Jane Drake. He deeded his estate Feb. 11, 1722-3 (New Hampshire Deeds, vol xiii, page 129) to his son Samuel for support in old age, mentioning no wife and no other children except two daughters, Jane, wife of Stephen Lang, and Sarah, wife of Joshua Foss. They were to have 20 pounds each if they survived him and demanded it. There was probably another son, William (3) who lived in the adjoining town of Greenland. Very likely proof of the relationship might be obtained from a thorough study of deeds and other available records. New Hampshire Deed, vol xxii., page 447, have a deed Aug. 4, 1715, of land in Greenland, from Joseph Weeks to William Wallace, Jr., both of Greenland.
