I've located a Knoxville newspaper (KNOXVILLE JOURNAL'S DIAMOND JUBILEE EDITION [Sep 25 1930]) discussing the history of the Knoxville area and mentioning Rev. Charles N. PACE; he moved to St. Paul, MN, then Duluth. It also mentions, "The following items are found in the marriage records of J.W. Hackley--Aug. 27, 1890, Rev. Thomas OSBORN to Birdie May PACE. ..."
If you would like this newspaper page, contact me by email and please reference 1930 PACE:email@example.com
In 1900, Thomas OSBORN and Birdie are enumerated with daughter Helen M. (born May 1898). (Source: 1900 US Census > Iowa > Henry > Winfield > District 3)
In 1910, Thomas and Birdie are still enumerated only with daughter Helen M.; however, the census indicates that Birdie has borne 2 children, only 1 of whom is living. (Source: 1910 United States Federal Census > Iowa > Muscatine > Muscatine Ward 2 > District 110)
Acc'd'g to the 1925 IA State census data, Birdie and Thomas had another daughter, Virginia, c1911.
A 1924 newspaper item indicates that Rev. Charles Pace conducted the marriage ceremony of his sister Ella and her new husband, Ray Maxwell, in Chicago (Source: Davenport Democrat And Leader, The | Davenport, Iowa | Thursday, April 24, 1924 | Page 10). Acc'd'g to the 1930 census, it appears that Ella had a 19-year-old stepson, Ralph MAXWELL. (Source: 1930 United States Federal Census > Iowa > Jefferson > Fairfield > District 8) Ray/Roy operated the WITTE store in Williamsburg.
