|We know in many cases Wallis is Wallace, but this page is a Wallis Page. In our ancestry going back to the early 1600 the only name change we find is from Walles to Wallis in the 1600. I also have a Wallace line but not connected to this Wallis.|
| My direct ancestors came
to Canada in 1847 on the Ship Westminster. Thomas Wallis, son John
and daughter Emma. Also arriving on the same ship was the Gee
family. (More on Gee page)
They landed in New York, traveled up the Hudson River, across Lake Erie to Port Stanley. From there they went to London, Ontario, Canada where the Richard Wallis, family had settled. Richard and Thomas were brothers, we do not have the date of Richards arrival in Canada, we do think it was a few years earlier.
While living in Woolsey, a small town near Dorchester John met Margaret Fifield and they were married 17 April 1869. In the fall of that year they moved to Mondamin, Harrison County Iowa. To visit my Fifield connection, just click Fifield.
John purchased land near Mondamin and began farming, which became a life long occupation. John and Margaret raised a family of nine children, which included one set of twins. They stayed on the family farm until there passing. Both are buried in the Magnolia Cemetery.
