MARY ELIZABETH WALLACE was b. April 30, 1839, and died April 30, 1874. On June 24, 1864, she married William Payton HANDLEY in Tippah County, Mississippi. This is second hand information, of course. In 1975, when I began researching, William Payton had four children still living and the youngest had his Bible in which he had listed his marriages and his offspring. He was married three times and Mary Elizabeth was the first wife. According to the four children living in 1975, he met and married his first wife in Ripley, Mississippi. I believe that is in Tippah County. If a marriage certificate (or death certificate) could be found, it should be a big help. I do not know the names of her parents, but Payton's second wife was her niece (MARY SUSAN WALLACE) so we know she had at least one brother. Any help appreciated.
