to COLE COUNTY MISSOURI.
JOHN R. and BENJAMIN Jr.
were the only Paces in Cole Co, MO in 1850
and both were born in VA.
Also, John named a son Benjamin. Birthplace of John's son Benjamin, places John in TN in 1830. He is probably either the John Pace in Claiborne Co. with 1 son under 5 and 2 daughters under 5
or the John Pace in McNairy Co.
with 2 sons under 5 and 1 daughter under 5.

Henry County Virginia
Henry County was created in 1776-7 so none of these children were
actually born in that county.
Henry County created from Pittsylvania County.
Pittsylvania County was created in 1767 from Halifax County.
Halifax County was created in 1752 from Lunenburg County.
Lunenburg County was created in 1746 from Brunswick County.
So, tentatively, we can say that Milly and John may have been born in
Lunenburg County (unless they were born before William and Luranna
moved to what was to become their Henry County home); Newsome,
William, Langstrom, Joel, and Letitia may have been born in Halifax
County; and Spencer, Langston and Susannah may have been born in
Of course this is mostly speculation. I welcome comments and
additional documentation about this family.

He served in the Black Hawk War and attained the rank of Captain. His company was probably involved in the arrest of Joseph Smith (of the so called Mormons).

GOOCHLAND CO., VA.:
Formed in 1727 from Henrico, this county was named for the man who became
the Governor of Virginia that year, William Gooch.
BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND, where I was born, is the 2nd largest city in the UK and has a GOOCH STREET in it's downtown core. I am wondering if the STREET and the COUNTY in VIRGINIA have a common origin. GTP
This county was a huge territory from which many other counties were later formed. During
the 22 years that Governor Gooch served, much of the western portion of
the polony was settled, particuarly in the Piedmont. The
Jeffersonian-styled courhouse, at Goochland Court House, was erected in
1826 by Dabney Cosby and Valentine Parrish, the master builders who
constructed many of the original buildings at the University of Virginia.
