AND NOW — We have been introducing new neighbors, but we want to get back to
Wa.i-ting about long-term residents. Of them, we believe that Mrs, James Wallace is
probably THE senior citizen of Pine Knoll Shores, She will be ninety on Nvember
15, Mrs, Wallace who makes her home with her daughter and son-in-law, Bob and
Marion Greenlaw, on Oakleaf Drive, is a white-haired lady with a delightful Scot
tish burr to her speech. She was bom in Glasgow, Eaizabeth McLellan, and was a
ladies tailor there. When she came to America, she worked in New York City making
the long evening cloaks ladies wore then. In 191^ she and James Wallace whom she '
had^known back in Scotland were married in Washington, D,C, where he was a sculp- .
tor s assistant to Bush Brown, In 1915 they went back to /Scotland, They were
booked on the Lusitania but changed to the Tuscania at the last minute, and on that'
voyage, the Lusitania was sunk, James Wallace and his bride did not come back to
Merica until the war was over. They settled on Staten Island where he was a
builder and contractor, Marion was married from the home her father built in Jfew
Doorp,^ When the Wallaces left that home, they moved to a house next to Bob and
Marion s in Franklin Township near Middlebush, New Jersey, In I959 they went back
^ Scotland, their first pleasure trip together. After Mr, Wallace's death,
^izabeth Wallace lived with Marion, and with Marion and Bob she came to Pine Knoll
