ALSEY PACE & FAMILY - JOHNSTON CO., NC.
ALSEY PACE (b.1785) M. CASSANDRA DEAN 1836 (his 2nd wife)
Alsey was one half American Indian and one half White--his father was STEPHEN PACE of the Richard Pace line from VA. Because of his Indian mother, he is often shown as a free person of color or mulatto in census reports. Cassandra Dean is believed to be white, as was Alsey's first wife (Zilpha Hall, m. 1820 in Johnston Co., NC--My line)

CENSUS AGES VARY WILDLY

1850 Census - Johnston Co. NC
11th Dist., Earps Borough
PACE, ALSEY - 65, male, mulatto, farmer, value real estate $50, born NC (B.1785)
Cassey(?) - 35, mulatto (b.1815)
Noah - 16 - mulatto (b.1834)
Madison - 11 - mulatto (b.1839)
David - 9 - mulatto (b.1841)
Harriet - 7 - mulatto (b.1843)
Beady - 5 - female - mulatto (b.1845)
Rhinison - 3 - male - mulatto (b.1847)
(Names aren't very dark and could read) - Lookup from Anne Miller - annetm@krittersnkids.com


I viewed the 1860 census for Johnston Co., NC:
PACE, ALSEY - 60 - FARMER $3000real est., plus $1000 pers.prop.(b.1800)
Cassandra - 35 (B.1825)
Noah - 23 (b.1837)
Madison - 21 (b.1839)
Harriet - 19 (b.1841)
David - 18 (b.1842)
Obedience - 15 (b.1845)
Riner(?) - male 13 (b.1847)
Sally - 10 (b.1850)
Solomon - 1 (b.1859 - son of Harriet?)
All of these were shown as mulatto, but the entire neighborhood was white. Black would have been one of the options of the census taker.


The 1870 JOHNSTON CO., NC, CENSUS, p. 438,, shows
PACE, ALSEY - 85 (b.1785--this is consistent with the 1850 census), farmer, $1500+$300
Cashy - 60 (b.1810), keeps house
Alsey - m. 19? - farm hand (b.1851?)
Harriet - fem. 20 (b.1850)
Sally - fem. 12 (b.1858)
___ - m. 13? (b.1857--Soloman?)
All of these were born in NC. All were marked either White or Mulatto, but not Black
A mark in columns 16 & 17 seems to be saying that none of them can read/write
Another mark in column 20, seems to be saying that he is a born citizen of the U.S.
(I will have to check on these columns because this census (handwritten) was almost illegitible) For the first time we see an Alsey Jr.--I guess the rest of the kids from the 1860/1850 census have gone out on their own.
Either he is lying about his age, or he was born in 1785, contrary to Bruce Howard's opinion that he was born in 1775 or so.

Betty,

I am so glad that others are working on my family lines!
Due to the clues that I've picked up online in the last two weeks, I have found that my great grandfather Noah Pace's father is Alsey Pace. And that Stephen and John Pace are his grandfathers.

I am seeking any info about the family as I can get. My relatives told me that Noah was a redish colored man, so to find out that he is 1/2 Indian is not a surprise. Another relative told me that Madison was probably his brother and a relative who has done family research states that his wife Mary Jane Haggens came from Virginaia and married a slavemaster's son, so was Alsey a slaveholder?

I am also interested in learning Cassandra Dean's parents names and those, too, of Harriet Hicks. There is a mystery involving Harriet Hicks which I would be glad to discuss by private e-mail.

Any clues/info would be of huge assistance.

I am so glad to hear from you.
The line of Alsey Pace (illegitimate son of Stephen Pace, a white man, and an Indian girl) goes back to Richard & Isabel Smythe Pace of Jamestown, 1607. I have lots of documents that I can share with you. The father of Stephen Pace was indeed John Pace (wife Sarah Burge), and he was killed at the Battle of Shallow Ford, NC in 1781--he was a Tory/Loyalist and killed by Rebel/Patriot forces under Gideon Wright. Some of the sons were Tories and some were Patriots--we think Stephen was a Patriot, and died in Johnston Co. NC around 1806.

Please contact me privately at:
bapace2@juno.com

I have never seen anything to suggest that Alsey Pace was a slaveholder.

I have never been able to prove the father of Cassandra Dean, but someone suggested he might be Calvin Dean.
I look forward to hearing what you have uncovered.

I am descended from Alsey's first wife--Zilpha Hall. Her father James Hall lived next door to Alsey & Zilpha in 1820 in Johnston Co. NC. Then they moved to Guilford Co. NC, where the children were born. Alsey Pace seems to have deserted them there about 1835, and they were helped by the Wardens of the Poor.

Alley Pace's daughter, Harriet Pace, is my great great grandmother through her daughter, Rilda Pace. Rilda married William Wiggins. One of their sons, Jiles, is my grandfather. I believed the family was considered white, then later mulatto due to Alcey'smother was an American Indian woman. Jiles married a black woman which was not kosher at that time. In fact he married his cousin!s babies momma. Apparently his cousin chose not to marry my grandmother. So black so beautiful.

I'm very interested in your research although your ancestry is going towards the deans. Cassandra was one of three women he had in his life based on what I could discern from limited data.

You are on the right track and we are family there are many others tracing this family. What you discovered about him is funny keeping going further back. We are Pace but as you branch out to other and all siblings in his family you will pick up different names. I met someone from the leaf of Noahs today. My great great grand father is one of their sibinggs. Harriet and Cassandra are both in my family tree but when I saw the bit about Harriet and Cassandra I thought I had something wrong. I also met another person sometime ago and his also had good info about the family both Black and White and Indian and From England.There is more data out there to be gotten.Looking to hear from you again.

Have a blessed one Pink

Thank you. I will continue my research. I heard there is a Pace cemetery near Zebulon. The property owned by a Pace was sold. The new owner allowed the cemetery to stay. It was cleared and cleaned up several years ago. Perhaps I can gleam some info in it's findings.
