Update - CARROLL K. WALLACE has been claimed and  is going home!

CARROLL K. WALLACE looks like a happy child, all bundled up for cold weather. No indication of age or time period. But appears to be around 4 years old, and my best guess for time period is circa 1900-1910.

The matte frame is stamped "Pierce Studio, Ottumwa, IA"

UPDATE - well, that's what I get for making assumptions! Further research shows Carroll Kaley Wallace is a boy (I had thought this was a girl in the photo).  Iowa Births and Christenings indicates that Carroll was born on May 6, 1898 to parents George R. Wallace and Della M. Kaley. The 1910 Census for Ottumwa IA indicates that Carroll was an 11 year old male living in a household which also contained George R. Wallace (45), Della M. Wallace (41) and Nancy Kaley (65).  Nan Kaley was still in the household in the 1920 Census.

Carroll K. Wallace signed up for the World War I draft on Sept 12, 1918 and stated that his current occupation was "musician."

Iowa Marriages reports that Carroll K. Wallace was married June 28, 1921 in Des Moines IA, to Fay Marie Biesen (b. 1899 in New London, IA, daughter of J.H. Biesen and Marie Rauch.)

Died 23 May 1972 in Los Angeles, California.
