DC states she was born Fredericksburg, that would be Gillespie Co, TX.

1870 census Gillespie Co, TX:

Lacey, J.H., 40, b IL - no land shown/personal 1100 -
" Mahala, 36, b IL
" Emily, 12, b TX
" John D., 10, b TX

Go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- I typed in Lacey, no first name or initials, born Illinois, 1830 + or - five years, spouse Mahala. Several people are working on this line. The first one shows among the children Ruthie Maude, birth date, but no death date. I would contact some of these people, find our the sources for their information and share what you know on your branch.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
