Another name for Barbara was Barbara Monro.
Donald Wallace (1816-?) letter to Ed H. Wallace dated 4 Jun 1896 has b. 18 Aug 1737 [1773? 1787? May be typo in transcription.] Gravestone has d. 4 Feb 1849 (in Guelph, Ontario). Transcribed Donald Wallace letter has d. 4 Feb 1844.
The transcription of Donald Wallace's letter has 18 August 1737, which is probably a misreading of 18 August 1787 or 1789. According to Jeanine Wallace, the family Bible of George & Barbara has b. at Arshrop, Parish of Ross-shire, Scotland on August 18, 1789. This is born out by her gravestone (b. August 18, 1789 and d. February 4, 1849).
Donald Wallace (letter of 4 June 1896) gives death date as 4 February 1844. Jeanine Wallace (email 2 Jan 2010) says her headstone has 4 February 1849.
Noted events in her life were:
• Obtained: Lot 11, Concession 1 in Pilkington township, After 19 Aug 1828, Woolwich Twp (Pilkington/Centre Wellington Twp), Wellington, Upper Canada (Ontario), Canada. The farm is still owned by descendants of George and Barbara Wallace. Seven generations have been raised on the family farm. It is located in Elora, Wellington, Ontario, Canada.
• Settled: on a farm on Wellington Road 7, Abt 1829, Ponsonby, Nichol Twp, Wellington, Upper Canada (Ontario), Canada. The second farm is northwest of the first, farther from Guelph. From Jeanine Wallace (email 2 Jan 2010): "The second point is where Barbara and the boys settled their own farm (still there today). The info we have is that they moved to the farm on Wellington Road 7 in 1829, after George died. I don't believe the deed reflects that date, I'd have to double check the date, the deed is dated in either the 1830s or 1840s. I think they were 'squatters' for a while. Eventually Hugh and Donald took over the farm, splitting the land. As you know Donald moved to the U.S. and George (Hugh's son) took over Donald's 50 acres. The original log house and structures are not standing on the farm today, but we know approximately where they were located. One of the doors in our farm house (build 1874) was from the original log home, tore off when it burned."
• Moved: From Guelph to Woolwich Township, Ontario, Canada, 20 Apr 1833, Woolwich Twp (Pilkington/Centre Wellington Twp), Wellington, Upper Canada (Ontario), Canada.
Barbara married George A. Wallace, son of John Wallace [I] [of Bonar Bridge, Tain] and Janet Grant, on 6 Mar 1806 in Rosskeen, Ross-shire (Ross and Cromarty), Scotland.1 2 (George A.
