Paces of central Missouri - Camden and/or Cole County

from 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

  • JOHN T. PACE (1844-1930)
  • Mary J. Pace (1840-1928)
    Their children (?) Contemporaries of Christopher and Martha Pace Murray are:
  • B.F. PACE, d. 1905
  • MARTHA U. PACE, d. 1886

    Thank you for any help you can give us in this search for our Pace relatives.

    I am seeking info on JOHN THOMAS PACE and his father JOHN R. PACE.

    John T. b.1844 d.1930 marr. MARY JANE BIRD. John R. b.1790 marr. EMILY TAYLOR.
    These people from Cole Co., Missouri. Will appreciate your help.
    Frances Drever

    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 Christi, Texas
