Wallace Smith b.1861

Another cryptic note from Marian Smith.
Howard was her father.  Margaret her mother.  Blanche her stepmother
I don't know who Wallace was.  Emma his wife?
Charles was her grandfather (Howard's father), Sarah Ann (Hagerman) his wife
Arden MrHenry was her uncle, married to Mary Alice, Howard's sister.

So where does Wallace fit in?

In 1870 Charles and Sarah are in the census with children Alice,Cora, Ellen, and Anna.  No Wallace.  If Wallace was born in 1861, he should be age 9 in the 1870 census.

There's a Wallace H Smith in Ohio, born around the same time, married to a Margaret.  When I finally find a Wallace, of course I find two of them, with the same middle initial even!
