Mentions brother John Sharp so I’m guessing that was Marjorie’s maiden name. Marjorie was born 1936. She also has son with surname Wagner – so probably had more than one marriage.

    1. [GRACE] Biography of Elijah Grace of Ottawa County, Kansas
    2. Karen Isaacson Leverich
    3. This biography has a different tradition than I'm used to for the Kentucky/ North Carolina Graces. I pass along the biography in case anyone is interested, it is from, "A Biographical History of Central Kansas," published in 1902 by the Lewis Publishing Company. These are probably distant cousins of mine, but in a line I'm not actively working. http://archive.org/stream/biographicalhist02lewi#page/1254/mode/1up Pages 1254-1257 ELIJAH GRACE One of the prosperous and prominent farmers of Ottawa county [Kansas] is Elijah Grace, who resides in Fountain township, near Ada. He was born near Cairo, Massac county, Illinois, October 4, 1837, and is one of seven children, four sons and three daughters, born unto Allen and Charlotte (Flearny) Grace. Two of the daughters of the family are yet living. The father was a native of Kentucky and his parents were natives of North Carolina, but the Grace family is of German lineage. On the maternal side our subject is of Scotch descent. Allen Grace emigrated from North Carolina to Massac county, Illinois, in the year 1813, and there our subject spent his youth upon the home farm. After attaining his majority he entered upon an independent business career, working as a farm hand for thirteen dollars per month. He afterward secured a situation in a flour mill, where he received thirty dollars per month - which was considered high wages at that time. Mr. Grace was employed in that way until December 26, 1861, when he married Julia Peed, who was born in Kentucky, May 25, 1843, but at the time of her marriage was living in Massac county, Illinois. Renting land with the money which he had saved, Mr. Grace secured farm equipments and began following agricultural pursuits in Illinois, being thus engaged until the spring of 1868, when he fitted out a horse team and an ox team and with his wife and two children started for Kansas. They were also accompanied by a friend, a Mr. Lancaster, who wished to go to Kansas and drove the ox team for Mr. Grace. They left Illinois in the latter part of June, their route being up the Mississippi river to St. Louis, where the crossed the stream, thence proceeding to Rockport, where they crossed the Missouri river, going thence northwest to Westport, Missouri, entering this state where Kansas City is now located. On the 1st of August, 1868, they arrived at Solomon, where Mr. Grace rented a house for a month. During that time he located a claim in what is now Fountain township, Ottawa county, two miles northwest of the town of Ada. In the fall of 1868 he removed his family into a dugout on an adjoining claim, owned by Gilbert Laird. In the winter of 1868 Mr. Grace cut timber and built a substantial log house on his claim, and in the spring of 1869 his family took up their abode in the new home. The buffaloes were then numerous in this part of the state and would often rub against the logs or corners of their house. During the winter Mr. Grace hunted buffaloes and trapped wolves for their skins, securing many wolves by strychnine poisoning. The buffalo hams were the only part of the meat that was saleable, and for these they received two dollars each. One dollar was paid for buffalo hides, seventy-five cents for coyote skins and two dollars for grey wolves. During the spring of 1869 the Indians were very troublesome and the family frequently had to seek safety in Minneapolis [, Kansas]. Mr. Grace was never without his revolver strapped to him and when away from the house his rifle was his constant companion. During the winter of 1870, accompanied by three companions, Mr. Grace proceeded about one hundred miles westward to engage in buffalo hunting and trapping. One afternoon while he and a companion were baiting traps they sighted a band of Indians in the distance coming toward them. There appeared to be about fifty. They circled as though to surround them. Realizing their danger Mr. Grace and his comrade started for their camp, notifying the other two men of their party and then procuring all their ammunition they took refuge in a ravine, which ran a short distance into the foothills. Mr. Grace stationed two of the men close to the mouth of the ravine and one in the center, while he kept a lookout over the bluffs at the head of the ravine. The Indians circled round, coming closer and closer to the brow of the hill until they were lined up on each side with their chief at the head of the gulch, but afraid to venture close enough to look down in the ravine. In the meantime Mr. Grace lay close to the brow of the hill. By this time he realized that there about twenty-five warriors and that some bold action must be taken or their lives would be of short duration, for the Indians were all armed with guns and bows and arrows. Just as the chief was about to approach nearer to the brow of the hill where he could have a view of the ravine, Mr. Grace raised himself quickly and with cocked gun demanded the chief to ground arms, or order which he seemed to understand, for he obeyed and commanded his warriors to do the same. He then obeyed Mr. Grace's order to assemble his me around him. The savages did not know the force of the whites and probably supposed they were outnumbered, and as their chief was in imminent danger they obeyed his orders in order to save his life. Mr. Grace and his three companions then marched the entire force, twenty-seven in all, to their camp, fed them all they could eat and while they were thus feasting devised a way of disposing of their prisoners. The concluded to confiscate their ammunition and then order them to take their guns and go. After receiving a promise from the chief that he and his men would not molest them they were allowed to march out of the cabin in single file toward their camp, which they said was located about ten miles to the west, where were encamped eighty braves, twenty squaws and thirty pappooses. Our subject and his companions escorted them some distance then returned to their camp, as night was approaching. They kept guard all night and in the early dawn broke camp and went to Kerwin's camp on the Union Pacific railroad, which was then being built, and from that point proceeded to Salina, where they disposed of their buffalo robes, wolf and coyote skins and buffalo hams, realizing about two hundred dollars from their hunt. During the years 1870-1 Mr. Grace had to move his family several time to Minneapolis on account of the raids of the Arapahoes and Cheyenne Indians, and they had continually to be on their guard, always going armed with gun and revolver. Mr. Grace hunted buffaloes and engaged in farming to some extent during the years 1872-3-4-5 and as the buffaloes were then becoming scarce he gave up the former pursuit, devoting his entire attention to agricultural pursuits and cattle raising, having in the meantime gathered quite a herd of cattle. During these years he marketed his crops at Salina and Concordia. He has been quite successful in his business affairs, dealing quite extensively in range cattle and thus materially increasing his income. He has accumulated property rapidly, adding to the homestead several hundred acres, buying small tracts at a time. He now has one hundred and eighty acres in one body located on either side of First creek, with fine timber for a windbrake for the cattle. The larger part of his land is cultivable. He also has a section of pasture land in Lincoln county, a few miles from his home place, owning this in partnership with his son, J. E. Grace. In connection with his two sons, J. E. and Will, he conducts his extensive farms and handles about one hundred and fifty head of cattle, a large number of hogs and about twenty head of horses. The principal crop raised is corn, but they also raise some small grain. In 1883 Mr. Grace and his family were called upon to mourn the loss of the wife and mother, who died on the 27th of January of that year. They had ten children, two born in Illinois and eight in Kansas, namely: B. F., who was born May 7, 1864, is married and lives in Ottawa county, and has three children; J. E., born June 7, 1867, is associated with his father in business; Laura, born October 1, 1869, is the wife of Frank Cline, of Stanton township, Ottawa county, and they have two children; Thomas A., born May 3, 1871, is engaged in the livery business, is married and lives in Ada, and has two children; Hattie A., born April 1, 1873, is the wife of Harry Meixell, of Denver, Colorado, by whom she has two children, and is superintendent of the Colorado Ammonia & Chemical Company; Olive May, born April 2, 1875, is the wife of Ed Mountain, a farmer residing two and a half miles east of Ada, by whom she has three children; Florence Mary, who was born February 8, 1877, is the wife of E. Sechrist, of Fountain township, Ottawa county, and they have two children; and Effie A., the youngest of the family, who was born January 27, 1883, and is still living at home. She is acting as her father's housekeeper, and is a young lady of culture and refinement, who has acquired a good education and is well versed in music. The family home is a good residence, containing six rooms. Upon the farm are good barns, corrals, and other substantial farm buildings, and the place is fenced and cross-fenced. There is also a bearing orchard of several hundred trees, and this well improved farm is a monument to the enterprise and thrift of the owner. Mr. Grace has been quite prominent in public affairs. He was the first township treasurer of Fountain township and was one of the organizers of the first school district, comprising the township of Fountain and part of Garfield. He held the office of township treasurer for four consecutive years, was justice of the peace for two years and has also held district shool offices, ever discharging his duties with promptness and fidelity. In politics he was formerly a Democrat, but is allied with the Populist party and warmly advocates its principles, believing that they contain the best elements of good government. He belongs to the Baptist church of Ada and always gives his support to every movement and measure which he believes will prove of general good. From pioneer days he has been identified with the county and his name is inseparably interwoven with its history, for he is a representative of the honored class of citizens who in frontier times came to Kansas and laid the foundation for its present prosperity and progress.

    3. Mark's e-mail account has clearly been compromised and is (temporarily) being used by spammers to send spam. Don't visit the link he shared. His address has been put on moderation until the problem is resolved, and assuming I did that right ... there shouldn't be any additional spam messages coming through to the GRACE mailing list. Hope you're having a great Easter (if you celebrate Easter today) and a great Sunday, in any case. Anyone have any new GRACE info to share? Any GRACE puzzles to revisit?

    1. [GRACE] Biography of John A. Grace (born 1843) of Yell County, Arkansas
    2. Karen Isaacson Leverich
    3. I ran across another Grace biography, and share it here in case it is of interest... My comments in [square brackets]. Biographical and historical memoirs of western Arkansas, 1891 Page 150, in the section of Yell County biographies: http://www.archive.org/stream/biographicalhist00sout#page/281/mode/1up John A. Grace, one of the pioneer settlers of Dardanelle Township [,Yell County, Arkansas], emigrated from Gibson County, Tenn. in 1849, with his father and mother, Jesse G. and Phoebe (Gatley) Grace, and seven children, he being the youngest of the family. His parents were natives of Kentucky, the father born July 27, 1805, the mother deceased in this State, in 1857. On arriving in Yell County, the father bought and settled on 160 acres of timberland, adjoining his son's present farm, and has since added 100 acres more to this, one half of which is tilled. Our subject was born in Gibson County, Tenn., September 5, 1843, where he grew to manhood. The advantages for an education being very limited, he remained with his parents, assisting in the farm duties, till July, 1861, when he responded to the war cry, and enlisted in the Fifteenth Arkansas Regiment, Company D, commanded by Capt. Hollowell and Col. McRay. He was a participant in the battles of Oak Hill and Elk Horn, thence crossing the Mississippi River to take part in the engagements of Corinth No. 1 and 2, and Inka, and Baker Creek. Soon after, just before the siege of Vicksburg, he, with one half his regiment, was captured by Gen. Grant, and on May 17, 1863, were taken to Indianapolis, thence to Fort Delaware, and Point Lookout, Md. In December of this same year, they received their paroles, and started for Richmond; upon reaching this city they were given a New Year dinner by the ladies of that place. Leaving Richmond for their homes, they were obliged to travel in a roundabout way, going through the Carolinas, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. From Jackson, Miss., they were compelled to walk the entire distance, arriving safely at home after many trials. During this journey, they found it necessary to pass through Mississippi swamps, breaking the ice and wading through water, which was from the shoetop to the arm's pit in depth. On his arrival at home, our subject purchased the eighty acres on which his homestead now stands, adding to it till he now owns 360 acres, 170 being tilled and producing such commodities as cotton, corn and wheat. On his farm will be found a good residence, barns and sheds. In October, 1867, he was joined in matrimony to Bettie Thomas, being born in Middle Tennessee, November 23, 1846, and a daughter of C. Thomas (see sketch). [There is a Columbus Thomas biography in this section, but Bettie isn't listed as one of his children, so it's not clear to me what "see sketch" is suggesting.] To this union were born ten children: John, Jessie, Bennie, William, Mollie, Anna, Ray, Allen, Columbus [!] and Maggie. He and wife are members of the Missionary Baptist Church. John A. is comfortably fixed with this world's goods, enjoying life and the confidence of his fellow citizens, which he justly merits; all charitable enterprises, and any enterprise contributing to the welfare of his county, receives his most liberal support. Politically he is a Democrat, casting his vote with that party.

    2. Karen Isaacson Leverich
    3. My Graces went to Missouri rather than Mississippi, so I'm not sure which line belongs to Rev. William C. Grace, but if anyone is interested in him, here's his biography: http://www.archive.org/stream/baptistencyclop01cath#page/923/mode/1up The Baptist encyclopaedia, 1881 Grace, Rev. William C., was born in Tippah Co., Miss., Jan. 19, 1844. He professed religion in the summer of 1857. In the month of September, 1865, he was baptized into the fellowship of the Pleasant Hill Baptist church, Miss. He subsequently united with the Flat Rock church, where he was licensed to preach the gospel. He spent the next three years of his life as principal of Yorkville Academy. He was ordained by the Bethel church, Gibson Co., Tenn., Revs. M. Hillsman and R. A. Coleman constituting the Presbytery. In 1871 he was pastor of Spring Hill and Newbern churches. In 1875 he took charge of Humboldt and Pleasant Plains churches; having served the previous year with great success as financial secretary of the West Tennessee Baptist Convention. He is now pastor of the church at Sweet Water, East. Tenn., one of the most important points in the State. He is a devoted Christian and a good preacher. May he life long to honor the Master!

At the end of eighteen months Mr. Waters retired and Mr. Grace continued alone. In 1852 he was elected prosecuting attorney and served one term, during which time he formed a partnership with Judge John C. Murray, of the circuit court, continuing with him for about three years, when Mr. Murray was again elected judge, and he was once more left alone in his practice until 1860. Being a Henry Clay Whit, he consented to become a candidate for elector for the Whig party, having been elected to the same position in 1856. He was a Douglas candidate in 1860, and stumped all south of the Arkansas River, delivering some of the best speeches of his life. He was elected by Democrats to the secession convention, and was made chairman of the committee on ordinances. He was a very prominent man and used his entire influence for his own party. In 1861 he was appointed as commissary of the military staff of Arkansas, and was at the battle of Oak Hill, after which failing health compelled him to retire from army duties. He then went to Philadelphia and was under a physician's care for seven months. Upon returning to Pine Bluff he resumed his practice and this he has since continued. In 1880 he was a candidate for the office of Governor, but was not nominated. As a lawyer he has few superiors and is a fluent and eloquent speaker. At one time he owned 15,000 acres of land and now has in his possession about 2,000 acres. Mr. Grace was married first in May, 1853, to Miss Harriet Boyd, who was drowned near Paducah, Ky., in December, 1863. Mr. Grace took for his second wife Mrs. Emily B. Hudson, whom he married in April, 1868, and to them was born one child, now deceased. Mr. Grace is a Royal Arch Mason, and 1878 he connected himself with the Temperance Alliance, having been president of the Arkansas Temperance Alliance several terms. He has been an active worker in this cause and his influence has been felt among the Anti-Prohibitionists. He is known throughout Arkansas as one of the best criminal lawyers that the State produces, and his success is almost phenomenal in this class. He has defended and prosecuted over fifty cases of homicides, and but one man was hung that he ever defended.

    1. [GRACE] John 'n Milcah Redding Grace ????
    2. Barbara/Bill
    3. I'm told John came from Maryland - son of Aaron? Anyway - their son, Nimrod, who moved from PA to Indiana is "mine". Nimrod married Mary Ann McCully of Pittsburgh and if I have my info correct, their son Samuel moved back to Pgh....married Eves Grace.......and their son, Carl Jennings Grace, was my grandfather. C'mon, doesn't someone out there wanna own up to being related to me???? My grandparents divorced before I was born so the only Graces I knew were us (Grandma remarried to a Smith).....Now eons later when I've lived in Sacramento CA a long time I'm finding there were many cousins, etc in the Pittsburgh area that I totally missed out on. The Grace group from Mercer Co PA is a connection to John and Milcah too. Barbara nee Grace
