My G Grandmother was Roena/Rowena E. GISTwho married Wm. Richard Pace- my G Grandfather. Rowena E. Gist-Pace was the daughter of Christopher C. Gist b. abt. 1804 TN and married Mary "Polly" McNutt .I believe the McNutts were in Lawrence Co., AL.Then in Winston Co., AL abt. 1850.Rowena was the mother of my Grandfather:Joseph Benjamin Pace - he married a PACE -daughter of Lewis Cullen Pace and Mary Jane Hovater.I sent in Y-dna of both sides of my PACE families and it came back they could be related as close as 4 to 11 generations.SO, my Grandfather was a PACEand married a PACE. If you want to know the genealogy of Doris Pace who married a Mr. PAGE- Put in search for: Henry Walter Pace b. ALI know Doris had GISTS in her family- sister to my GGrandmother :Roena/Rowena E Gist married Wm. Richard Pace- my G Grandparents.They had a bunch of kids and then he ran off with a JAMES girl whose mother wasMary Pace and she married a JAMES.The woman was "Avery Ova James.Heleft his kids and went up to another state and I believe he died there.-- Sorry man!! Anyway my GIST Family was Aaron Gist who I believe was brother to Christopher Gist, my GG Grandfather and his wife Mary McNutt/McKnutt. BUT, my dad 's father was Joseph Benjamin Pace and he married a PACE, Lonie Leona (related).My Grandmother died before I was born and my Grandfather married Oma Stanley- married a Mr. Riggs, then married my Grandfather.I still have an Aunt and Uncle by that marriage living. I live in Phil Campbell, AL. We actually live abt. as close to Russellville, AL (where I am from) and close to Phil Campbell, AL where my kids went to school.I had 4 Kids- still do- 8 Gkids and a bunch of G GKids!!
Doris Pace-Page had been sick for a few years.I still have a lot of information she sent me on the computer before she got blind from diabetes and couldn't walk.I believe they went to Prentiss Co., MS from Alabama.I sure hate about Doris dying.I couldn't talk to her for a few years because she was too sick. Let me know what you think.Are you kin to my GISTS?My Gists were in Walker co., AL and then in Winston Co., AL.I can't find where Christopher was buried, but some of his family is buried in Walker Co., AL-- SO he may be buried there with his wife also.I wish I could find it. SO nice to talk to you.Addie
