Gen. William Wallace (1794-1864), of Blount Co., TN, was the son of Jesse Wallace (1767-1854) and Martha George 1776-1848). He married Margaret Chamberlain (1792-1844), the daughter of John and Hannah (Lackey) Chamberlain, of Blount Co., in 1816. After Margaret's death in 1844, he wed Mary Houston, the sister of Gen. Sam Houston. And when she died (1854), he took Mary Sigourney Towne, of MA, as his third wife a year later. William was commissioned as an officer in the U.S. Army during the War of 1812. After the war, he served as Blount Co. sheriff for 22 years and treasurer of Maryville College for 31 years. Gen. Wm.
