|Daniel R. Pace
The following is an obituary for Daniel. Regrettably the one for Daniel is brief. The issue of The New Market Herald that is referred to is not in the Bedford archives. A big disappointment. But the one for Richard is an informative one.
IA: THE BEDFORD FREE PRESS, Thursday, March 29, 1896
Thursday's New Market Herald contains an obituary of Daniel R. Pace, who died at his home in Mason township, on March 8, 1896, after a long and severe illness.
Mr. and Mrs. Pace came to Taylor county in 1855 and settled on the premises where they lived a happy and contented life up to the day of his death. Mr. Pace was an industrious farmer, an honorable citizen, and a success financially. Though trouble and sorrow overshadowed their home at times, both these aged people bore their grief with remarkable fortitude.
Funeral services were held on Tuesday, and the body laid to rest in old Memory cemetery.
Thanks to Jane Mason for providing this obituary to be published here.
