Looking for information on three generations of Wallace Family buried in Rockport Methodist Church Cemetery.

Information available shows my ggg-grandfather John Wallace and wife Rebecca (Poyer) with children Clarinda, Charles, Harriett, William O., and John relocated from unknown point in Pennsylvania to Monroe Twp, Allen Cty, OH prior to 1850.

William O. , my gg-grandfather, married Lavina (Lovina?) Beemer and had four children; Sarah A., Mary E., James M., and William H.

William H., my g-grandfather, married Rosa Wells and had two children; Roy L. and Dortha. Rosa died in 1895 at age 23 of unknown causes. Dortha later married J.J. Becker.

William H. later married Leola (Mayberry?) and had one child Janette. Janette later married Richard Bixel.

Roy L. Wallace, my grandfather, left Ohio for Birmingham,AL in his early teens. There he married a Scot immigrant Anna Milne, and had one child; my father William J. Wallace, Sr.

Both my father and grandfather passed away within several months of each other in the late 1960's. And, beyond what is stated here, I have little contact with my ancestry.

Would appreciate hearing from anyone having information regarding this family.

Best regards,
