The first fact known about our Wallace Familyis that a young man, Samuel Wallace, came to America from Scotland in the latter part of the 18th century. He andThomas Kincaid, a Scotch-Irishman from Ireland, became friends and were working together somewhere in Pennsylvania. One of the sons was Robert Wallace, 1795-1865, went into the Army in the War of 1812,age 17. He served at Lake Erie, probably under Colonel John Purviance who raised a regiment of 12 companites in Butler Co., PA.

Married in 1815 to Elizabeth McCutcheon, Robert first lived in Shippenville, working with his brother,William, at an iron furnace. His last furnace work was a contract to cut charcoal wood on the land where the Clarion County Court House now stands. At that time it was part of Armstrong County.

Robert's jobs took him through Butler, Armstrong, Clarion, Jefferson and Forest Counties.
