WILLIAM H. AND JAMES G. WALLACE, brothers, who own over 100 acres of fine land in Mahoning Township, near Edenburg,
are representative citizens and successful farmers. Both brothers were born in Mahoning Township, Lawrence County,
Pennsylvania, the former in 1860 and the latter in 1865 and they are sons of Robert and Maria (Pence) Wallace.
Robert Wallace, the grandfather, came from Scotland to Lawrence County, a very early settler, bringing with him
his wife, who was a native of England. Their son, Robert Wallace, was born in Slippery Rock Township, Lawrence
County, where he lived until eight years of age, when he accompanied his parents to Mahoning Township, and he grew
to manhood near Edenburg, where he lived until his death, on November 16, 1891. He was a well known man, served
at one time as constable, but was mainly concerned in the development of his farm and promoting the welfare of
his family. He married Maria Pence, who survived him but a few months, dying March 14, 1892. Both were good Christians,
worthy members of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Edenburg.
William H. and James G. Wallace attended school in Mahoning Township and have lived since birth on the home farm,
which they are now successfully operating. In 1900 William H. Wallace was married to Maud Kelso, of Mahoning Township,
and they have three children, Mary E., Grace R. and Joseph K. In politics, William H. Wallace is a Republican,
to which party James G. also belongs. The latter has served as judge of elections in Mahoning Township.
