    James WALLACE (1826-1899)

    Note - The parents of the James Wallace who married Maria Brophy in Tasmania have been confirmed by DNA test. You can check the reason why I have linked him to the tree on a Blog post, and subsequent comments. Briefly, descendants of James and Maria believed James served with the Imperial Army, guardinng convicts to Australia then being posted to Wanganui, New Zealand, before being dischardged from service, then moving to Tasmania and marrying Maria. The story largely overlaps with the army recodrs for James Wallace discharged from service in Wanganui. Only one James Wallace was discharged in New Zealand, the son of James Wallace and Catherine McKane. There was a match in birth year on James's headstone in Tasmania and in his army records. There are no documents from Tasmania proving the link, but DNA tests have confirmed the link since it was first proposed.
