Photograph of Charles W. Wallace of Houlton, Maine, Class of 1897 at East Maine Conference Seminary at Bucksport, Maine
Photograph, possibly graduation photograph, of Charles W. Wallace of Houlton, Maine, Class of 1897 at E.M.C.S., presumably East Maine Conference Seminary at Bucksport, Maine.
Charles W. Wallace was presumably the New Brunswick native Charles W. Wallace (1877-1918) who applied for the U.S. citizenship in 1899 after having come to Maine at the age of seven in 1884.
East Maine Conference Seminary, established by the Methodist Church, operated from 1848 to 1933 at Bucksport, Maine.
According to his marriage record, Charles was born at Washwalk [now known as Nashwaak], New Brunswick, the son of William Wallace and Frances (Fraser) Wallace, "Fanny". His family moved to Aroostook County, Maine.
In 1903, Charles, by then a preacher, married teacher Bernice Wardwell in Penobscot, Maine. In 1910, they were living in Monmouth, Maine, with two children. Sadly, Charles died in 1918.
If you have information on the Wallace and/or Wardwell families, please leave a comment for the benefit of other researchers.
