Intermediate Family History Researcher
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
Inherited my Great granmother Sarah Catherine (Kathryn) Katie (Wallace) Beach Fite's trunk and the stories that she was related to the legendary frontiersman and Texas Ranger Captain William Alexander Anderson (Bigfoot) Wallace (1817-1899). In 1836 young William determined to go to Texas after hearing about the deaths of his elder brother, 3rd Sgt. Samuel P. Wallace at Goliad and his first cousin, 1st Sgt. William C. Wallace at Refugio. 1st Sgt. William C. Wallace was brother to Samuel Anderson Wallace who was Katie's father. So Katie was Bigfoot's first cousin once removed. This line can be traced back to Sir William Wallace of Scotland.

It's been a number of years but you may be able to reach her at patricia@moment.net. I don't recall what else was covered in the book. Good luck.

Hi Cheryl, I don't have a copy of the book, only Pat Johnson did. I did the research on the Morton line.

Hi Cheryl - That was interesting reading about the 2nd Mississippi I found one website where it told about the fighting on July 1st. http://www.2ndmississippi.org/2nd_miss_part_1/dw_2_MS_INF_web_part_6.htm  Harry Pfantz' book The First Day has some good maps and I will scan them when I get my scanner working again. The 2nd Miss. came onto the field as part of General A P Hill's corps and were north of an unfinished railroad on the west side of town. They initially had great success chasing Union forces in front of them. The railroad cut through a hill at this point and the 2nd Ms. was caught in there by the 6th Wisconsin and it was either surrender or be slaughtered.  So they surrendered. Here is a simple map of July 1st action http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Gettysburg_Battle_Map_Day1.png. 2nd Ms would be in the red band northeast of the unfinished railroad. I am going to Gettysburg tomorrow and Saturday to work and will run out there and shoot some pictures. Probably will be Saturday since I have to come right home after my afternoon tour as tomorrow is bowling night. Saturday is supposed to be warm an d will take my dog with me. I have an afternoon tour and a night time tour. Here is a picture of the Mississippi monument http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=2nd+Mississippi+monument+at+Gettysburg&view=detail&id=30B3C3261760B7C0FCE8C8C247FAE1C48C900DEE&first=1

I work for the Farnsworth House in Gettysburg Friday and Saturday afternoon doing tours of hte house talking about the battle in that little corner of Gettysburg. I also am a ghost hunter and do those types of tours Saturday night when I am needed in the winter and do alot of them in the summer. www.gettysburgshauntedaddress.com

Cheryl - That Bang the Drum Slowly is an Emmylou Harris song. The version on my page that you saw on my page was not done by me but one I found on You Tube and posted because it had family pictures. His version is a little different than Emmylou's because her version refers to "peace over Arlington" and the version you saw is about an Englishman and wouldn't be appropriate to mention Arlington.

Hi I - was sitting in the chat room today reading profiles. (There is a list of people on line there.) It was interesting reading about your connection to Texas history and the photographs of your relatives. I work doing tours in Gettysburg and it is interesting meeting people who are so closely related to history and care about that history. (Did you have any relatives at Gettysburg?)
