WALLACE, CALEB (?–?). Caleb Wallace, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, is said to have moved from Virginia to Texas. On May 14, 1828, he received title to a league of land on Beason Creek three miles southeast of old Washington-on-the-Brazos in the area of present southern Grimes County. In December 1830 the Wallace home was a polling place for the election of the alcalde for 1831. In January 1838 Wallace was appointed administrator of the estate of Owen Wingfield.
A Caleb Wallace living in Montgomery County is listed on the 1840 tax rolls. He declared for tax purposes 3,328 acres patented, 6,158 acres under survey to be patented, eight slaves, eight horses, and 125 cattle.
