Grandison Royston Wallace                               Charlotte Jane Leatherman


Grandison Royston Wallace

Grandison Royston Wallace (or Gran de Royston Wallace) was born on March 14, 1844 (according to his tombstone) (or August 20, 1845, according to his death certificate) in Arkansas; his parents were Druallen Wallace ("Dru") and Jane Hoppen.  He married Charlotte Jane Leatherman ("Lottie") on January 10, 1867, possibly in Donahoe, Texas (Bell county); they were married by C.M. Brown, an ordained minister.  Lottie was born on July (one source says March) 25, 1844 in Louisiana (one source says Texas).  Her family came to Texas in 1853 and settled at the Donahoe community in Bell county, Texas.  Grandison (Grandeson) and Lottie made their home in the Donahoe community, where he was a farmer.  She died in Bartlett in 1898 and is buried at the Donahoe cemetery in a fenced plot.  Her parents were Samuel Gibbs Leatherman and Hellen Koonce; they are buried next to Lottie.

The Donahoe cemetery is located on land that was set aside by Lottie's father for that purpose.  Larry Wallace relayed the following about Grandison Wallace's farm in Vilas, Texas: "Grandison Royston Wallace had a peach orchard at his farm in Vilas, Texas.  He was a perfectionist.  He would have his kids sweep the dirt under the peach orchard.  If his kids took the harness or tools and didn't return it to it's rightful place, they got a thrashing.  My father Jessie that he got many a thrashing with a wet rope.  Grandison would actually outline the place of the objects on the barn wall."

Grandison was a mule trader; he bought and sold mules.  Jessie Wallace told his son Larry that "Grandison always carried a wad of money that would choke a mule."

Grandison served in the Confederate service during the Civil War.  He came to Texas when the war was over.  After his first wife's death, he married a second time to (2) Mrs. Dora Alice Burgess Graham on January 1, 1900 in Bell county, Texas.  (Note: The marriage date comes from her Confederate pension application.  Dora lists both January 1, 1900 and June 3, 1900 as their wedding date in different parts of the application).  They made their home in the Val Verde community.  She was born on August 22, 1867 in Schulenberg, Fayette county, Texas and died at 12:30 pm on November 23, 1953 in Holland, Texas (of a coronary occlusion due to a fractured hip).  The Phillips & Luckey Funeral Home in Belton, Texas handled funeral arrangements.  She was buried on November 25th at Val Verde cemetery.  Her parents were William Burgess and Sallie Eslinger.

Larry Wallace relayed the following story, "When Grandison Wallace was dying, Jim Wallace (his oldest son) was on one side of the bed and Jessie (his youngest child) was on the other side of the bed.  Grandison grabbed both of their hands and told Jim to take care of little Jessie."  Grandison died of a hemorrhage on December 15, 1920 in Holland, Texas (Bell county).  He was buried the next day at the Val Verde cemetery in Val Verde, Texas.

The Civil War Record of Grandison Royston Wallace:
Company I, 33rd Arkansas Infantry, C.S.A.
(Captain Erwin's Co, Grinsted's Regiment)



The 33rd Arkansas Infantry was organized and mustered into Confederate service during the summer of 1862.  Almost all of the members were recruited in the counties of Pike, Polk, Sevier, and Montgomery.  Grandison Wallace's post office address at the time of his enlistment was: Caddo Gap, Montgomery county, Arkansas; this was his place on elistment.  He was eighteen years old and served as a private in his regiment.  Grandison enlisted on June 24, 1862 and served until 1865.  There is no record of capture or parole for Grandison Wallace (Note: Dora Wallace stated his name as "Granderson").  (Dora Wallace said the regiment was first called "Grinsted's Regiment", then later called the "33rd Regiment").  The 33rd Arkansas Infantry was frequently known by other designations derived from the name of it's commanding officer; some of the names used were:

G.R. Wallace: Disability Certificate
H.L. Grinsted's Infantry
Thomas D. Thomson's Infantry
Washington L. Dickson's Infantry
Oliver H. Overstreet's Infantry
W.L. Crenshaw's Infantry

The 33rd Arkansas Infantry served west of the Mississippi river throughout it's career, serving in both the Army of the Trans-Mississippi and the Trans-Mississippi Department.  The specific higher command assignments for this regiment were:

September 28, 1862: Parson's Brigade, Hindman's Division, Army of Trans-Mississippi.
January 31, 1863: McRae's Brigade (Arkansas Brigade), Hindman's Division, Army of Trans-Mississippi.
April 30, 1863: McRae's Brigade, Price's Division, District of Arkansas, Trans-Mississippi Department.
January 31, 1864: Churchill's Brigade, Price's Division, District of Arkansas, Trans-Mississippi Department.
April 20, 1864: Gause's Brigade, Arkansas Division, District of Arkansas, Trans-Mississippi Department.
September 30, 1864: First Arkansas Infantry Brigade, First Arkansas Infantry Division, Army of Trans-Mississippi.
March 20, 1865: Roane's Brigade, Churchill's Division, Second Corps, Army of Trans-Mississippi.

During the summer of 1864, a Lieutenant John M. McCarge of the 37th Arkansas Infantry began to unlawfully recruit members of the 33rd Arkansas Infantry to join a new unit of mounted sharpshooters to be commanded by him and a Captain R.A. Watkins, also of the 37th Arkansas Infantry.  Colonel Grinsted, commanding the 33rd Arkansas Infantry, reported that between June 8th and July 29th, McCarge's efforts had induced one Lieutenant and thirty-three enlisted to leave the regiment, without proper authority, and that Captain Oliver Overstreet's entire company was on the verge of leaving the regiment.  At this point, Provost authorities stepped in, arrested the Lieutenant, and brought those members of the 33rd Arkansas Infantry back to their proper command.  Some of the individuals involved in this affair were ordered to stand trial, but nothing has been found in the Official Records to indicate whether these trials were held, or, if they were, what the findings of the court proved to be.

The 33rd Arkansas Infantry participated in a small number of various types of engagements during it's career; these are listed below.  (Note: Numbers refer to map locations)

CIVIL WAR ENGAGEMENTS OF THE 33RD ARKANSAS INFANTRY:
.
1862:
December 7: Battle, Prairie Grove, Fayetteville (Illinois Creek), Arkansas (Map, # 1).
December 28: Skirmish, Dripping Springs, Arkansas.
December 28: Capture, Van Burne, Arkansas (Map, # 2).

1863:
July 4: Attack, Helena, Arkansas (Map, # 3).
August 1 - September 14: Operations against Steele's Expedition against Little Rock, Arkansas (Map, # 4).
August 27: Action, Bayou Metoe (Reed's Bridge), Arkansas (Map, # 5).
September 10: Engagement, Bayou Fourche, Arkansas (Map, # 6).
September 10: Evacuation, Little Rock, Arkansas (Map, # 4).

Subsequent reports of the unit's activities are confused.  It is known from higher command assignments found that the regiment existed as a unit until at least the closing days of the war.  Reports concerning the regiment's activities in engagements following the evacuation of Little Rock, however, have not been located.  It is probable that the regiment was merged or consolidated into one of the higher number Arkansas infantry regiments created in 1863 and that its activities in engagements were included in the reports of the unit in which it was consolidated.

33rd Arkansas Infantry Civil War Locations


Larry Wallace said, "Grandison Royston Wallace told his son Jessie that his job during the Civil War was to drive a team of six red mules to carry ammo to the front lines."  (Note: I wonder if the mules belonged to Grandison since he was a mule trader?).  Larry also heard from his father that when Grandison was in Claiborne Parish, Louisiana, they were to take over a plantation that was sending cotton to the North.  (Note: Did Grandison meet Mattie Minerva Wallace at Claiborne Parish?).

  1. Billy - you have some great information collected here. I'm a 3rd g-g-grandson of Grandeson Wallace. My grandmother is Judy Wallace Hubbell, daughter of A M Wallace, son of Samuel Gibbs Wallace. I didn't have any pictures of him so this is a great resource to have. (By the way, came across your site from a Google Search.) Thanks!
