Armed with the recent findings from our male-line Y-DNA test results for my husband’s Pace line, I now face the unpleasant chore of cleaning up my genealogy house due to this fallout, and outlining some next steps for my research plan.
After three months of waiting for it to finish processing, my husband’s Pace family’s much-anticipated Y-DNA results debunk the belief that they are descended from Richard Pace of Jamestown.
Richard Pace (1583-1627), my husband Jeff’s 11th great grandfather, is credited with saving the colonial settlement of Jamestown, Virginia. Last month, Jeff and I visited Jamestown.
James Darnley, Sr., a miner, immigrated to the United States in 1865, along with his 7 year old son James Jr. and his 9 year old daughter Jeanette [Janet]. The family arrived at the Port of New York on 16 October 1865, on board the Caledonia (part of the Anchor shipping line), which embarked from Glasgow, Scotland.
In honor of yesterday’s federal holiday celebrating the birthday of President George Washington, I am profiling William Henry Pace, whom we believe is my husband’s 5th great grandfather. Because it is possible that were it not for my husband’s ancestor, Washington might not have lived to become our nation’s founding President.
