    In regard to

    Bruce's account (on pages 58 and 313 of his new book) is that this BENJAMIN is not the son of WILLIAM PACE (b. 3/25/1711) and HANNAH BOOTEN but rather the son of BENJAMIN PACE b abt 1700, d. 4/1781 who married FRANCES WILLIAMSON. This BENJAMIN was a son of JOHN PACE of Middlesex.

    However, there is a contradiction
    in Bruce's record which needs to be resolved.

    On page 58 of his book he says
    "Benjamin, born approximately 1747 in King & Queen County.... married to Ann Robinson."

    Then on page 313 he says
    Benjamin Pace "is shown in the Bible record as being the son of Benjamin Pace & Frances [Williamson], his wife,
    [and] was born in King & Queen Co, Aug 12, 1764."

      "First school was winter of 1837,

        In 1850 there was a WILLIAM CAPTAIN, age 50, Black, carpenter living in the household of JOHN R. PACE and ELIZABETH

        WILLIAM CAPTAIN was sent to Canada to look after a LUCY CAPTAIN and child NANCY. This Lucy Ann White? was born on June 16, 1827 in Charlottesville, Va (Per family Bible) The bible also has the name Mayhew written in it.

        William C Captain is on the census for the town of York (Toronto, Ontario) in 1842. He is from Charlottesville, Virginia. By 1846 he is living in Toronto with Ann Captain born 1812 in Charlottesville, Virginia and her daughter Lucy Ann (White) born June 16, 1827 in Charlotteville, Virginia. The Captain family received land in the will of Col. John Boswell who was married to Ann Johnson. Ann Johnson's parents were Ann Meriwether and Thomas Johnson. It's thought that Ann Meriwether Johnson had a second marriage to a Cosby, after Thomas died ? The family bible also has the name Mayhew written in it.

        Col. John Boswell, owned a plantation and Boswell's Tavern, which was visted by quite a few famous people, left land to a WILLIAM CAPTAIN in his will. The Whites are often connected to the family of William Moment Pace b. 1806 and Dicy King. William Moment Pace is somehow related to my John R. Pace b 1809 in whose home William Captain b. abt. 1800 was living in 1850. Another family name mentioned by the person who sent me all this is Mayhew. 3/1/05 Lois Carey Pace-L

Paces in Fluvanna,Virginia
- Mourning Pace,Barnett,Jess,Etc. - Lois Carey
Have just received a copy of the estate inventory of Jesse Pace who must have died in 1807 as that is when the inventory was presented to the court.

I think his wife was a Mourning Adams. A Mourning Pace later married a Barnett inFluvanna in 1812. Does anyone know if this is the same Mourning?

Re: [PACE-L] 22/08/02 Jesse Pace died intestate-Fluvanna-1807
According to my records there were 3 Jesse Paces in that area of VA about that time, ca. 1807. Jesse Pace, Sr. m. Christian unknown was still alive on the 1810 and 1820 censuses of Goochland Co. VA. Another Jesse Pace, Sr., who married Francis Hall, died in 1802, probably in Goochland Co.

The one you mentioned is probably the Jesse Pace b. 1775, probably in Fluvanna Co, VA., married Mourning Adams b. 1772 Albemarle Co, married 1/18/1797 in Fluvanna Co. The last record of him I have is the 1802 Tax List of Fluvanna Co, VA. Apparently he died before the 1810 census. This Jesse was a son of John Pace b. 1740 Middlesex VA, m. Ann Nanny Pace. Gordon W.

was born in Fluvanna County Va. abt.1817

His parents were Talton (Tarlton, Tarleton) Pace and Jenny Pace (Marriage Certificate Feb. 16, 1870)

It is believed that Jenny was Virginia or Jane Haggard. The info from this source reads "John Pace and Ann (Nanny) Pace had four male children.

The first,

  1. JESSE PACE born in 1775, married
    + MOURNING ADAMS in 1797 and died in 1806.
  2. WILLIAM PACE was born in 1777, married
    + MARY THOMAS in 1797, date of death unknown.
  3. JOHN PACE Jr was born in 1781 married
    + BETSY WILKERSON in 1803, date of death unknowm.
  4. TARLTON PACE the youngest son,
    was born in 1784 and married
    + JANE HAGGARD in 1806 (bulletin 18)
Research suggests that this Tareton is the same one who married Virginia, who may also be the same as "Jenny" married to Talton.

Note: Blandford Cemetry Records of Internment lists

  • HARMON PACE, son of Talton and Virginia Pace, born in Fluvanna County Va. died Feb. 8 1848 of pneumonia at 30 years of age.
  • A JOHN PACE was listed in

It has been proven that

    was a member of the Commander in Chief Guard,
  • that a WILLIAM PACE
    was granted land in Scott County for service in Rev War.
  • I believe it can be proven
      that the WILLIAM PACE in Scott County
      was the same as was in Fluvanna County
      when he entered the service.
  • This is also the WILLIAM PACE
      who some say did,
      and some did not
    married Widow Wringer.

I have never read that his middle name was Henry
or that he was connected to Richmond Virginia.

The recent discussion of Paces renewed my interest in one of my brick walls. My ggg grandmother was Sarah E. Pace, born about 1825. She married my ggg grandfather, William Young (b. 1805), on 3 Jan 1846 in Albemarle Co. I have no information on the origins of either William or Sarah. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
William and his family are listed in the 1850 federal census for Fluvanna Co.:

William Young, 45, M, laborer
- Sarah Young, 25, F
- James H. Young, 2, M
However, William is not found in the 1860 census or later. Nor is William found in the earlier 1840 census for Fluvanna, although a William Young is listed for Augusta Co.

Also in 1850
I find the following household in Fluvanna Co.: Elizabeth Pace (65), Lucy A. Pace (39), Louisa J. Pace (21).

In 1850, William and Sarah lived near a James M. Pace (age 32) and family (wife Mary J., children Sarah N[?], Harriett W[?], James P., John A., and Lucy M.). James could be a relative (an older brother?) of my Sarah.

In 1860, Sarah's husband, William, was not listed, and she apparently lived in the home of a relative (mother?):

Elizabeth Pace, 70, F

  • - Lucy A. Pace, 42, F
  • - Sarah E. Young, 35, F
  • - James H. Young, 11, M
Compared to the preceding census of 1850, Elizabeth's age is off by 5 years from expected. If the ages were sorted out, it might be possible for Elizabeth to be Lucy's mother, and for Lucy to be Sarah (and Louisa's?) mother.
