The earlist census record I can find for Samuel P. is the 1870 census. He is listed as Pearson Wallis living in Muncy, Lycoming County.
I did find him in the 1890 veteran census of Hughesville (misindexed as Samuel T. Walles, I read it as Samuel P. Wallis). He served in Company F, 56th PA Infantry.
His widow Margaret T. (Theresa?) received a pension for his Civil War service: Appl 950,359 Cert 710,401. You can get a copy of his pension from the National Archives in Washington, DC for $75. While a bit pricey and the genealogical data it contains is uncertain, it may have some of what you are looking for. As I understand all the pensions will eventually be online, but I don't know the timeline. Some are already available online at Footnote.com for a fee. At the very least it would have data on their marriage as she would have had to prove they were married.
Samuel's obituary might have some helpful data such as any surviving siblings. Check with the Lycoming County Genealogical Society to see if they can help you with the obit and perhaps a baptismal record.
