History of Dallas County, Texas; From 1837 to 1887
By John Henry Brown
Memorial & Biographical History of Dallas County, Texas, 1892, pg. 667-668

D. A. Lacey, a farmer and stock-raiser, post office Eagle Ford, Dallas County, Texas, has been a resident of this county since 1850. Briefly sketched, an outline of his life is as follows;
Mr. Lacey was born in Carter County, East Tennessee, November 1, 1830. His father, Philemon D. Lacey was a native of that state and a son of James Lacey, who was reared in East Tennessee, and who was a descendant of English ancestry that settled there at an early day.
Mr. Lacey's father was reared on a farm, and was subsequently engaged in the manufacture of iron. At the age of twenty-four years, he was married to Miss Sarah Inman, also a native of East Tennessee, daughter of James Inman, who was of Irish descent, and who lived in Tennessee. After his marriage, he removed to Giles County, Tennessee, and during the war of 1812, served under the celebrated General Jackson, to whom he became very much attached. Sometime later, he moved to Walker County, Georgia, where he remained eight years, at the end of that time returning to Giles County, Tennessee. In 1849, with his wife and three children, he started for what was then the frontier of civilization. They were detained at Memphis on account of high waters, and were obliged to remain there through the winter, and until about the first of May. While in Memphis, their oldest son, Alexander, died of cholera, age twenty-eight years. In May, they hired a boat to take them to Duval's Bluff, where they sold their horses and bought Ox teams, continuing their journey to Texas, and enduring almost every hardship and privation imaginable. They arrived here in October, 1850, and the father pre-empted 320 acres of wild land, which they set about improving, and here established their frontier home. The old gentleman resided on this place the rest of his days. He lived to the advanced age of ninety-two years and died in 1887. His wife preceded him to the other world, dying in 1871, age seventy years. Both were active and earnest Christians, and were consistent members of the Baptist Church for many years.
As will be noticed, D. A. Lacey was twenty when he arrived in Texas with his parents. July 17, 1856, he was married to Pallina Cockrell, daughter of Wesley Cockrell, who came here from Missouri, in 1846. In connection with his farming pursuits, Mr. Lacey also engaged in teaming, hauling goods from Houston to Dallas, also from Shreveport to Dallas, for many years. His union with Miss Cockrell was blessed with nine children, all now living, namely; Avery, wife of James Wright, Dallas county; Albert, also of this county; James, Los Angeles, California; Adaline, wife of W. Gray, Howard county, Texas; Philemon, Los Angeles; Sarah, wife of Jefferson Wright, Dallas county; Alice May, Leona and Carl. After the death of his first wife, Mr. Lacey was again married, July 17, 1884, to Mrs. Rebecca Girard, a native of Cherokee county, Texas, daughter of Robert Rutherford, who came to Texas at an early date. The result of this union is four children; Daisy, who died in 1889, age four years, Lillian, Hettie Florence and Thomas Jefferson.
Mr. Lacey is a Democrat of the old Jacksonian type. During the late war, he served four years as teamster in the Confederate service. He still resides on the farm which his father pre-empted, and with him lived his brother, Abraham T.

David A. Lacey was a Confederate Soldier Volunteer of Dallas Texas

Thank you Frank Gill. I have seen that particular record for Hester Lacy. However, there is nothing in the record to prove or disprove it the same person I am searching for. Can't find any marriage records or anything else that would link her to the rest of the family.
