He was wounded in arm during action at Abbeyville, Mississippi on Aug 13, 1864. His rank was private during both periods of service. On Dec 20, 1866, when John Thomas was 22, he married Mary Jane Bird in Cole CO MO. He filed an affidavit in the pension file for Nancy Jones Gouge when she applied for a Civil War Pension based on the service of her son, James David Gouge. He listed his residence as Centertown, Cole Co, MO on 23 Dec 1882. He states his age as 38 years and says he has known the claimant, Nancy Jones Gouge, since 1859.
John T. Pace and Mary Bird had 6 children

m. (2) Sarah Catherine BIRD b. ca 1853, d. ca 1925, marriage date unknown
on the 1870 Census - Cole Co, Marion, Mo
Joseph Pace listed as age 35 b - in Mo, is listed as alone, no wife
One person reports this wife was Margaret Murray, says d-3 Sept 1869 Cole Co Mo
with these sons
- John age 11 Mo
- James 8 Mo

Emilie Pace age 50 Ky - this could be his mother
on 1850 Census - Cole Co Mo lists JOHN PACE age 59 Va Wife EMILY age 47 Ky Emilie age 22 Mo
in 1850 Census in JOHN PACE Hh age 3
Next Hh is BENJAMINE PACE age 40 Wife MARTHA

So Benj must be brother as he is on the 1850 Census in John Pace HH
- Griffin age 6,
..Benj is age 20 b-Tn

Here is proof of

d July 1951 in St. Louis, MO, buried in McGirk, MO
my grandfather CLYDE WILLIAM PACE of Jefferson City, MO was promoted to General Manager of the Western Division of the MoPAC. He had two black gentlemen assigned to his private car: Felix the porter and Ben (I don't have his last name) who was the cook. Grandfather took very good care of them both. Ben passed on nearly 45 years ago, but Felix, at age 100 passed on in 2006. I'd always known Felix and he was a good friend. Felix used to say he could always tell when my sister and I showed up at the private car; he would hear lots of slamming of doors and running footsteps.
In later years, I found myself working out of St Louis, MO for one week per month and I did this for nearly 7 years. During that time, one or two evenings per week were spent with Felix, usually over a fried catfish dinner. He had wonderful stories about both my g-father and gg-father. When he had his 100th birthday, I made the trip to the rest home in St Louis area and attended and was asked to speak since I'd known him so long and had spent considerable time with him. He lived in the same, rented 2nd story apartment in the inner-city of St Louis for 54 years! His railroad pension was virtually nothing and after he left the railroad he went to work driving pilots and passengers to and from Lambert airfield in St Louis to and from the big Holiday Inn close to the airport. He was with them for nearly 30 years.
Both my G-father and GG-father and my G-mother
are buried in the little cemetery in McGirk, MO along 50 Hwy, close to California, MO.

Paces of central Missouri - Camden and/or Cole Countyfrom Pace Network - 1996 Queries
The following members of the Pace family of Cole and Camden counties, MO
are buried in the Murray cemetery, just south of Centerville, MO., Cole Co. We know nothing about their origins. One idea is that MARTHA PACE MURRAY may have been part Cherokee, another that CHRISTOPHER MURRAY's mother was Cherokee. Christopher did move to Oklahoma following Martha's death in 1892, where he died in 1901.
ELIZABETH PACE, b. 1/23/1828, d. 11,1892,
married CHRISTOPHER MURRAY (1825-1091).
She is buried in the Murray cemetery, just south of Centertown, in Cole Co., MO.
Their daughter, MARTHA MURRAY, married WILLIAM WILSON in 1868;
they had 15 children

descendent of JOHN THOMAS and MARY ANN BIRD's son-JOSEPH FRANKLIN PACE b 1870
I am the ggrandaughter of JOSEPH FRANKLIN PACE b. 8-21-1870, who was the son of JOHN THOMAS PACE and MARY JANE BIRD PACE of COLE Co. Missouri. I know we are related as JOHN THOMAS was the son of JOHN R. PACE and EMILY TAYLOR.
I too am looking for the answers that you are.
I am certainly not an "expert". I am truly a "novice", but would also like to clear up the discussion with correct answers. I have done my searching up to this point and have sometimes relyed on people of great experience and information. I agree that it should be checked out by us and not rely on others, but I at my location, do not have the resourses that others have. I hope that they understand this as I write to them for their advice and knowledge WAY beyond mine. My family comes from South Texas on the gulf coast and my library does not have the resources it should. If I can help you with anything you need, please feel free to contact me and I hope that I can do the same with you.
Please send me your info, and if you would like mine, I will send it to you. I continue to wait for the unknown answers and read it intently as I know you do... Good Luck...BFemail@example.com-Corpus Christi, Texas
