  E. D. WALLACE, for more than a quarter of a century an esteemed and honored citizen of Lima, was born in 1847, at Poland, Mahoning County, Ohio, where he was reared and educated.  He is a son of the late John Wallace, who for many years was engaged at Poland in the furniture and undertaking business.  Mr. Wallace is by occupation a very successful agent for a number of insurance companies, while by trade he is a miller, having learned that calling in his early youth at Youngstown, Ohio.  After working at his trade in that city and in Sharon until 1870, he entered the store with which he was connected until he located at Lima in 1880.
     Arriving in Lima on Dec. 1, 1880, Mr. Wallace at once engaged in the general insurance business, with which he has since been identified, having become proficient and eminently successful in his work. He represents a number of companies, among which are the following: Ohio Farmers; Eureka, of Cincinnati; Metropolitan, of Chicago; Central Manufacturers of Van Wert; Mutual Life, of New York, and the Maryland Casualty, of Baltimore, Maryland.
     Mr. Wallace was married in 1870 to Miss Alice Draa, daughter of Perry Draa, of Trumbull County, Ohio, and a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, the name having been changed from the original spelling Drake to Draa.  Three children have blessed the union of Mr. and Mrs. Wallace, viz: Glen I., who is in the insurance business at Lima; Julia L., wife of Orrin Simpson, who is with the Central Gas Company of Columbus, Ohio; and Frank N., who is associated in business with his father.  Mr. Wallace is a member of the Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church, of Lima, in which he takes an active interest.  He is also a member of the Knights of Pythias.
