Pace Family

Captain James Pace Sr. died defending the US against the British at New Orleans in the War of 1812. His son and namesake James Pace Jr. Joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1839, serving as a Lieutenant in the Mormon Battalion that secured San Diego for the US Government in 1847s Mexican-American War. James later established Payson, UT and and it’s first congregation at Brigham Young’s direction. I have found and scanned a 1946 BYU copy autobiography of about 100 pages from my Grandma Afton B Taylor possessions. I would like to email it to any Pace clan member that wants a copy. It includes a daily diary of the Mormon Battalions movements. I grew up listening to my Great Grandma Beatrice Taylor Brinkerhoff 1901-1984 recount stories of summers spent on Seven Mile in Fishlake National Forest making cheese with her Mom, Ann Louis Pace, and shipping it to the railroad in Salina UT. Ann was the daughter of James. So even though he died in Thatcher AZ in 1888, I still feel an affinity to him. Thanks Papa Pace!
