From Elizabeth B. Wallace's Find A Grave page:


Birth: Dec. 10, 1788

Death: Dec. 23, 1869

Daughter of Col William Wallace, from Revolutionary War

She had two half-brothers younger than herself; William, who lived in Louisville, KY and Albert, who lived at Jeffersonville, IN. She had brown eyes, reddish brown hair, and was very reserved and dignified. She never forgot that she was descended from the VA Aristocracy and also that the best blood of Scotland ran in her veins.

She rarely ever visited in her later years, except to see her chlidren. But her doors were open to everyone who needed help of advice.

All of the childern of Elizabeth showed their Scotch Ancestry in their rather florid complexion and red or sandy hair except, Matilda, Thomas and Rueben. General Lew Wallace, author of "Ben Hur", "The Prince of India", and "The Fair God" was a relative. The World Book Encyclopedia states that Lew Wallace was born in IN, and one of Elizabeth's half-brothers- Albert lived in IN.

Lived with daughter Angeline Wright and husband in 1860 census. shows her as 70 years old, and her son William listed as "gentleman" not married living with her and her daughters family.
