1925 Letter re: T.J.J. Pace from Nell Deets Walker.    Was going through some stuff today and found this about our grandmother's brother. I have had this info for some time but kept forgetting to tell you about it.

Thomas Jefferson Jackson Pace did not disappear until the date of ""2nd of December 1925"" long after WW 1 was over in 1918. He left Florida for a furlough to go to Garland for two weeks. I have copies of his military papers. He had excellent military record, did not smoke or drink nor cuss according to the records. He owned a filling station in Garland at one time and was a volunteer fireman and was friends with all the local people in the know in Garland. He volunteered for the service during the war and came home a hero. He re-enlisted and at the time of his disappearance he was Corporal in the U S Marine Barracks of Fixed Defense, Anti-Aircraft Fire Control nit, Naval Air Station.

His furlough expired at 12:00 midnight 2 December 1925. Was wearing civilian clothes and boarded the train for Garland. My grandmother had received a letter stating he was coming home for a furlough but no one claimed to have seen him. His sister, Etta Louthridge got his insurance money when he was finally declared deceased by the military. What's more her husband Arthur had Disappeared at the same time he was to arrive in Garland and he would never tell anyone where he was. The family thought he killed Jeff and hid the body. It turns out that Arthur was always just one step from being in jail. He was a very unsavory character and not to be trusted. It was known fact that Arthur had beaten Jeff up pretty badly on more than one occasion. And his daughter, Ola was the tall tale teller of Garland, Texas. More than one witness to that.

So, Jeff was unjustly accused and was a very upstanding person. It was never proven that Arthur killed him but the family all left this earth believing that is what happened to him. And I do not mean the Louthridge part of the family. That is about 7 years after the war that he was still living until Dec. 1925. I have newspaper articles, copy of letter he wrote the hometown newspaper, his military record and other proof that he was not a turncoat. I never did believe that in the first place.

So, if you get the opportunity to tell anyone and set the record straight it would be great. He was a very patriotic soldier and a hero for his country. And I had his name, rank etc., put on a brick at the Veterans Memorial in Garland since his name does not appear on a stone anywhere.

Take care, Nell Deets Walker
