Searching for parents, grandparents of Hardy Pace born 1880 Texas

+2 votes
What I would give if I could find his grandparents. I know he was born April 3, 1880 in Houston, TX and that his parents were Hardy Pace and Hester Ann Rogers Miller. This I found on Hardy's application for a Social Security number. I know he first married Minnie Lee Sears [ I believe she had been married before to a Mr. Harrison] Her name is on their children's birth registration, they had 4. I can not find a marriage license for them and I do not know what happened to Minnie, Next he married Myrtle Weldon Girvin on Sept. 18, 1917 in Mississippi Co., AR and they had 7 children, 6 who lived to adulthood.  Have really hit a brick wall.  Any and all help appreciated.

What year were each of Hardy Pace's parents born and in what state, county and or city?
I do not have dates but presume by him being born in 1880 that they were born 20 to 35 years prior to that.  On the 1930 census he gives his parents birthplaces both as Texas.
I found on  the divorce of Hardy Pace and Minnie Lee Sears Pace, on 7/17/ 1917 in Mississippi Co., Arkansas.  She then married a Archibald Franklin Fitzgerald.  I found her on the 1920 census and her youngest daughter, listed as step-daughter.  Hardy married Myrtle Girvin 9/19/1917 in Mississippi Co., AR.  But I can find nothing on his parents.

I drove all the way up to Houston and went to the Dept. of Vital Stastics, they did not keep records of live births in Texas until 1920.

If this is Hardy Pace's father, also named Hardy Pace, then George may be the right grandfather.

Hardy Pace
Tennessee, Death Records, 1914-1955
birth: 17 October 1847 Stewart Co.
death: 17 October 1928 Bumpus Mills, Stewart, Tennessee
burial: 18 October 1928
residence: 17 October 1928 Bumpus Mills, Stewart, Tenn.
father: George Pace
Hester Ann Rogers Miller is proving elusive so far. Anything you can add to pinpoint where and when she was born, can be helpful.

The records I can find for Hardy Allen Pace do not show him as the father for Hardy Pace born Aug 1880. Also, Hardy Allen Pace had a different wife than who you mention for Hardy(1880). That doesn't mean he isn't the father, though. Also, without the birth record or the 1890 census it is hard to prove.

I think Hardy Allen Pace is a possible candidate. I also think the progenitor of the family, Hardy Pace born 1805 in GA is likely his great grandfather. It may be that one of his other son's is the grandfather.

Its worth researching.

This is the wrong Hardy Pace, I've researched this one.  If there was an 1890 census it would help but they were destroyed.
