John Wallace, b. 1748 Bucks co., PA; d. 1814 Fayette co., KY

Posted: 1368994267000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Wallace, Finley, Hill
John Wallace served in the Revolutionary War in the 5th PA Regiment under Col. Anthony Wayne, as proven in DAR records. His DAR Ancestor number is A119916; go to for more info.

His will, dated 20 June 1813, was filed and later probated in Fayette county, KY. His wife was Jane Finley who appears to have died shortly after the will was written.

Does anyone have information on when he arrived in Kentucky? Some researchers think his older children were born in Kentucky as early as 1779, but since he was still in the army in PA, I feel that is highly unlikely.

The children named in his will: John Wallace, James F. Wallace, Abraham Hill Wallace, Andrew S. Wallace, Joseph Wallace, Jane Wallace, Margaret Wallace, Martha Wallace and Mary Hill, who is mostly likely the wife of Thomas Hill by 1813.

A son who is found in some records but not in his will is:
Alexander Wallace, b. 4 July 1785.

Any clues on this family will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Not my line; doing this for a friend.
