||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.
