|Hi, my name is Martha Knowles, known on the internet as Wilona7mek.|
My family tree has information on the families of: (mostly these first two) Smock, Wallace, also Burkhead, Martin, Fuller.
Dad always told us we were related to Gen. Lew Wallace (author of Ben Hur).My great grandmother was Martha Ellen Wallace, who married a Charles Albert Smock.Martha had a younger brother, Joseph, and their father was Benjamin P. Wallace (born 1844).He had two brothers, John A. (born 1833) and James C. (born 1836).Their father was James A. Wallace.
Wallace and Smock are on my paternal side; almost all were from central Indiana, but Benjamin's family seems to have come up through Tenn/Ky.
Burkhead and Martin are on my maternal side; grandfather was Earl F. Burkhead, born in KY.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.I would also be happy to share what I have, but it may be a little slow coming, as I work full time.
Oh yes, and it's best to contact me via email -- I've been deaf since the age of 7 years.
