Ralph Outlaw ca 1687 – 1760 | his parents
& bef 16 July 1714 Anne ? died bef 1780 | her parents
of Norfolk Co, VA & Chowan Co, NC

This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!

Ralph Outlaw was born ca 1687 in Norfolk Co, VA son of Edward Outlaw (ca 1650 – 1714).
Ralph Outlaw married Anne before 16 July 1714.
They removed to Chowan Co, NC about 1717 where he bought land on the south side of Catherine Creek. Ralph died in Chowan County, NC in 1760.

—- a Thomas Outlaw was a buyer at the estate sale of David Reece Nov 1751
—- from estate file of Josiah Stallings – inventory 1772 – The answer [Aug 1800?] of Thomas Rhodes [evidently to a petition] stated that Josiah Stallings died about 20 May 1772. Rhodes further noted that his wife was aunt of the said Betsey Stallings. Deposition [24 Jan 1804] by Courtney Freeman stating Mary Stallings was the widow of the dec’d, and married Aaron Askew after her husband’s death, before her marriage to Askew, Mary deeded Negro Jude to her children John and Elizabeth Stallings. Elizabeth Stallings later married John Belote, Jr and their daughter Frances Belote married George Outlaw [son of Thomas Outlaw].

Joseph W. Wallace

Joseph W. Wallace, register of Madison County, was born in Edgecomb County, N. C., October 1, 1830, the son of Warren and Mourning (Raspberry) Wallace, both of whom were natives of North Carolina. The father came to Tennessee in 1831, locating in Hardin County, on the Tennessee River, where himself and wife spent the remainder of their lives. They were most exemplary citizens. Joseph W. was reared as a farmer, securing a fair education, and preparing himself for teaching, which occupation he followed irregularly from 1845 until 1882. In 1853 he went to Arkansas, but returned to Hardin County in 1860, and when the war broke out enlisted early in 1862 in Company G, Fifth Kentucky Confederate Regiment, and was captured at Baton Rouge, La., August 5, 1862, and was held a prisoner of war until the following October. In November, 1862, he was transferred to the Twenty-third Tennessee Battalion, and was promoted at Chickamauga to color-bearer, and served as such until August 19, 1864, at Atlanta, where he .lost his left leg (and was held as a prisoner, of war until March 9, 1865), when he’ retired on full pay. After the war he returned to Hardin County, but soon left there and followed his profession, and in 1870 came to Madison County, where he has since resided, following book-selling and teaching, and in 1882 was elected to his present position of register. His re-election in 1886 attests his popularity. August 12, 1851, Mr. Wallace married Sarah A. Gage, who died March 3, 1859, leaving two children: Cyathia J., widow of J. W. Allison, and Sarah E., wife of J. L. Allison. December 10, 1865, he married his present wife, Margaret Ann Lewis, who has borne her husband three living children: Robert H. Lee, Florence H. and Jennie B. Mr. Wallace is a Democrat, and he and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, he having joined the seine in 1847.

After finding this information, I decided her name must have been Wallace. My uncle had always contended that her maiden name was Wallace, but this was the first proof that I found. I have not found any information to tell me who the Nancy Patridge was who was living with her in 1860. My mother and I think it must be some relation, but so far have found nothing to show what it is.

If you would like more informaiton on Joseph and Mary’s children, I would be happy to send what I have.

My mother was Joalene Harris, her father William J. Harris, his mother Martha Outlaw, the daughter of Joseph and Mary. Laverne Hughes

Hoffler, James and wife, Deborah. Petition of James Hoffler of Gates County prays that what property he now has or may hereafter acquire be solely vested in him, and that his wife Deborah be precluded from any right of dower. Committee of Divorce and Alimony is of the opinion that the petitioner’s prayer be granted. attached the Petition of James Hoffler of Gates County sheweth that in the Year 1802, he intermarried with Deborah Outlaw in hopes of enjoying the comforts of married life. After a few months, said Deborah left your petitioner and returned to her father, Jacob Outlaw, and refused to return to your petitioner. Said Deborah took up with a certain John Lowance by whom she had one child, and they continue to live in adultery. No hope of reconcilation has ever taken place between said Deborah and your petitioner. Said Deborah’s father has taken into possession all the property she was possessed with and continues to hold the same. Petitioner prays for a law to invest him with power to dispose of his estate by will or overwise so as to deprive said Deborah of right of dower and the child or children she may have by said John Lowance from any claim on your petitioner’s estate, real or personal, that he now has or may hereafter acquire. Petition endorsed by sixty-nine subscribers including David Outlaw, James Outlaw, and George Outlaw. . . . . .
