I found a death certificate for Williamson Wallace, he died in 1932, in North Carolina. His wife Maggie Wallace is in the 1940 census in Charlotte, North Carolina with the kids. She is on the WWII record for one son named John in 1943. Dorinda
Dear Ms. Frederick,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Population Census for 1920, 1930 & 1940 in the Records of the Bureau of the Census (Record Group 29). Only the 1940 Census includes images for Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. It is not searchable by name.
Therefore, we searched Ancestry and located Williamson Wallace as head of household on the 1920 Census and 1930 Census accompanied by lists of other suggested vital records for additional information; and his 1932 Death Certificate. We also found Maggie Wallace’s 1940 Census as head of household along with other lists of vital records, and her 1957 Death Certificate; and their son John’s World War II Draft Registration Card in 1943. There may be a fee for using Ancestry or Fold3. Instead, you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via a NARA PC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on Family Search at https://www.familysearch.org/en/.
The Social Security Administration’s Death Index which is digitized and available on Ancestry as a useful genealogical research tool.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
