Lewis (Lew) Wallace (1827-1905) IN

I would be interested in knowing if anyone is aware of where the family link is between the Childers Family, and Lewis (Lew) Wallace, author of Ben Hur. I have been unable to find the link and was told that my father-in-law (a Childers) was related to Lew Wallace and would like to add the information to the family tree. I found a photo of E. Childers with Lew Wallace in Arizona at Meteor Crater that was taken in 1928, but do not know what the E. stands for and the death date for Lew is 1905. If anyone can give me info on where the Childers and Wallace families became linked to one another I will be deeply grateful. Rebecca Childers, Indiana
