Fulton, Oswego Co., N.Y.
Many thanks to Gale Lee Payne for generously sharing this information on her 2nd great-grandfather, Guilford Dudley Mace, Jr., who died 7 Jan 1935. I wrote you before about my ggggrandfather Guilford Dudley Mace, Sr. who was killed at Gettysburg the first day. Now here is a story about his son, Guilford Dudley Mace who was killed in Fulton, Oswego Co., NY.. This is from a newspaper there. My grandmother Mary Minnie Mace Quade saved it....
Gale told me her "Dad's family has been difficult to trace. Dad so much wanted to find out more, but unfortunately that didn't happen before he passed away 4 years ago. As a tribute to he and my Mother, who researched for more that 35 years on both sides, I am persistently pursuing more information on the families... This is a tribute not only to Guilford D. Mace, but my Father, Guilford William Quade...thanks again.
Gale is researching the following
surnames and would love hear from anyone about them and exchange information:
MCQUADE, MACE, DYER, BLAKE, CODY, SCHOFIELD, CAMPAIGN, KELLY, COLE, HAZARD,
DRUM AND COLEMAN. Please contact
