I have lots of info on Cornelius Wallace and Ellen Narcissus Smith. They are my Great Great Great grandparents. C.W. worked on the Fort Worth and Denver railroad. He was also a Texas Ranger. Ellen Narcissus has a fascinating family that I will not go into detail here. Rufus Wallace married Jennie Bell Shelton, who also has a long, fascinating family history that goes to the Scottish royal families. C.W's father was Abijah, a baptist preacher who was killed a confederate Charlottesville VA. His mother was Mary Cox. Abijah's father was Thomas Allen and his mother was Frances Briding. Thomas moved to Tensas Parish where Abijah and C.W. were born. Thomas father was William Allen and Rhoda unknow. William was believed to have been born Virginia. He died 1837 in Warren Co. MS. I have copies of Williams Will, Pictures of C.W., A fascinating story of moving from Denton TX to Elk City OK written by C.W., a fascinating story of life during the Civil War also written C.W.
