I may be able to give you some information, I have pasted a document with my family history and I am aware that all but one of the children of William Wallace & Margaret Molneaux emigrated to USA. John Wallace only remained in Ireland.


Rusheen, Ballylongford, Co. Kerry
Generation #1
Thomas Wallace

There are two Thomas Wallis mentioned in the Ballylongford parish records during the first half of the nineteenth century.
The first is mentioned in the baptism record of a James Wallis, son of Thomas Wallis and Mary Lynch of Rusheen, baptised 24th November, 1824. This is the only mention of this family in the Ballylongford records
The second Thomas Wallis mentioned married a Margaret Kean on 1st January 1824. The following children are recorded for this couple:
John Wallis: Born Rusheen, Ballylongford, 28th March 1827
Mary Wallis (i): Born Rusheen, Ballylongford, 23rd August 1829
Margaret Wallis: Born Rusheen, Ballylongford, 24th May 1836
Mary Wallis (ii): Born Rusheen, Ballylongford, 1st May 1841
More about John Wallis
Baptised: 28th March 1827. Sponsors were Jeremiah Foley and Bridget Kean
More about Mary Wallis (i)
Baptised: 23rd August 1829. Sponsors were Michael Kenelly and Joana Lynch
More about Margaret Wallis
Baptised: 24th May 1836. Sponsors were Patrick Keane and Catherine Keane
More about Mary Wallis (ii)
Baptised: 1st May 1841. Sponsors were Michael Kean and Ann Enright
While it is impossible to say conclusively what the relationship of William Wallace was to either of the two Thomas detailed above it is virtually certain that he was related to one or both of them. One could speculate that William was the son of Thomas Wallis and Margaret Keane – this would certainly seem the more plausable scenario because the last recorded child of Thomas Wallis and Mary Lynch was James, baptised in 1824, and William was not born for a further 23 years, whereas there are baptism records for children born to Thomas Wallis and Margaret Keane right up to 1841,
