This is what I've pieced together but it is mainly from trees and message boards without documentation. I would appreciate it if someone can confirm if I am on the right track , fill in missing information or tell me where I have gone wrong.
Herman or Harmon Dace was born in Munster in 1795.
Michael and Dennis Dace immigrated to the United States sometime before 1812. Herman was in the British military during the War of 1812. After the war he remained in the United States.
Herman married Elizabeth Everett June 13, 1825 in Jefferson County, Missouri. She was born in Missouri in 1808.They had 8 children.
The fourth one was John Dennis Dace born on March 29, 1833 in Missouri. He married Sarrah Davis on September 18, 1858. She was born October 29, 1836 in Missouri. They had nine children.
The first one was Sarah Elizabeth Dace born on June 22, 1859 in Missouri. She married Arnold B. Ferrell on September 11, 1877. He was born on July 24, 1847 in Tennessee. They had nine children. I have the first child's birth date as 1874 but the wedding date not until 1877. Is that correct or was Annie a daughter from a previous marriage?
Herman died in 1853. John Dennis died June 2, 1890. Sarah Davis died January 19, 1882. Arnold B. died November 19, 1891 and Sarah Elizabeth died June 16, 1929.
I did find a Herman Dace on the 1840 census that may be this Herman Dace. The genders and ages work except that the census shows 2 females between the ages of 5-10 that I don't have in my list of Herman's children.
I found Elizabeth Dace and children on the 1850 census but it doesn't list Herman. If he didn't die until 1853 why isn't he included in the census?
I found Arnold B, Elizabeth and children on the 1880 census and just Elizabeth and the children on the 1920 census. These two censuses agreed with the information I had.
I've only detailed the information for my branch because of the quantity of people involved. I've just started working on the Dace family so I haven't done a lot of work yet. I guess I just wanted some reassurance before I plunged in head first.
