Colleen,
From my research I think I've found a few items of interest for you:

- A William Wallace was born in 1819 to John Wallace and Anne Gallagher who were married 5 Jan 1807 at Drumcliff. John and Anne lived at Lissadell. Other children of John and Anne include:
Mary b. 1807
Margaret b. 1810
Mathias b. 1812
John b. 1814
Jane b. 1815

The witnesses to the marriage were Samuel Shaw and Thomas Gibson. Samuel Shaw may be an ancestor of mine so there could be some family relation between my family and yours.


There are plenty of Wallaces in Drumcliff but the ones closer to Lissadell are the ones in Ballinfull and Ardtrasna.

- James Wallace was living in Ardtrasna in 1841 and in 1858.
- John Wallace was living in Ballinfull in 1841 (Could be the John of Lissadell)
- The oldest death records I've collected for Wallace include:

--------Catherine Wallace (1796-1816), Unknown Townland, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
---------Charles Wallace (1780-1828), Unknown Townland, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
--------George Wallace (1786-1839), Carney, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
--------Jane Wallace (1797-1837), Ardtrasna, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
---------John Wallace (1755-1837), Carney, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
--------Margaret Wallace (1766-1830) [Probably from:], Carney, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
---------Mary Wallace (1807-1829), Lissadill, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
---------Matthew Wallace (1766-1826), Unknown Townland, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
---------Ralph Wallace (1771-1818), Unknown Townland, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo
---------Rose Wallace (1805-1829), Unknown Townland, Drumcliff Parish, Sligo

I hope this helps.
