James Milton Lacey was born to George and Nancy (Norris) Lacey. They came to Illinois from Pennsylvania in 1842, along with George's brother Leslie. Nancy emigrated from Ireland in the early 19th century when she was a child. James was my grandfather Dale's grandfather; and died in the early 1940's. He is buried, along with his wife, sons Earl (my great-grandfather) and Gus and several grandchildren, in the Lacey family plot in the Bath Cemetery in Bath IL.
