Wallace attended the first grade district school at "the Ridge," and at the age of sixteen years began teaching in the River district school in Hastings. He taught three years at Sand Ridge, attending school at Central Square during spring and fall. In 1878 he married Sarah, daughter of Jonathan Peacock, who came from England and settled in Geddes, Onondaga county, later removing to Collamer.
