Biographical or historical data
Joshua Maddox Wallace was born 4 October 1752 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and received degrees from the College of Philadelphia (1767) and the College of New Jersey (1770). He moved his family to New Jersey just before Philadelphia fell to the British in 1777. While his father had been a successful merchant in Philadelphia, Wallace decided to lead the life of a farmer, and proved successful. Wallace served in the New Jersey constitutional ratifying convention in 1787 and in the New Jersey legislature in 1791. He also served as trustee for Princeton University from 1798 to 1819. Active in the New Jersey Society for the Suppression of Vice and Immorality, Wallace chaired the convention which created the American Bible Society in 1816. Wallace died 17 May 1819 and was buried in St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Burlington, New Jersey, as was his wife, Tace Bradford Wallace (1747-1828).
