I love this photograph of my great-great-grandmother Mahala Rebecca (Hampton) Pace. Her gentle smile and kind eyes make me wish I could sit and talk with her.
Mahala was born on 6 Jan 1843 in Fannin County, Texas. At that time, Texas was actually an independent republic! She married David Wright Pace on 21 Aug 1860 in Collin County, Texas. They had thirteen children, all of whom survived to adulthood -- a rarity in those days. Mahala passed away on 1 May 1916 at Era, Cooke County, Texas at the age of 73.
