North Carolina, USA
|Death: ||Dec. 29, 1968|
Joseph E. Mace, 90, a long-time Grouse Flats farmer and medical friend-in-need died at his home Sunday. He had been in declining health for several years.
Mace lived on Grouse Flats for 63 years before selling his farm because of illness and moving to Asotin in 1964.
He was born Dec. 22, 1878, at Spruce Pine NC, the son of James and Susan Mace. He came West in 1901 to homestead on Grouse Flats. While proving (earning the right to ownership through time) his homestead, he worked in hospitals at Portland. His knowledge acquired in hospitals was put to use serving neighbors in remote Grouse Flats early in the 1900s. He cared for the ill, delivered babies and even extracted a few teeth.
He was married to Stella Evans Oct. 14, 1907, in Asotin County and she shared his experiences the rest of his long life. They had four children: Charlie, John, and twin daughters Alice and Susan.
