Ronald, Do you know where James and Suzanne were living in 1860, 1870, or 1880? It seems very unusual that they would have been missed on all three censuses. I do know that in a lot of cases, couples were buried separately due to living arrangements after the death of the first spouse. That occurs fairly often in Union Parish, especially when the surviving spouse moved in with children who lived some distance from the burial place of the one who died first. Also, in some cases, the family had money to pay for a tombstone for the husband, but by the time the widow died, their financial situation had changed. That doesn't indicate a divorce or that the couple was buried apart, but rather that the wife had no marker.
I have a Pace connection, in that James Pace (born 1793) had a daughter, Narcissa/Narcissus (born 1834) who married into my Ham family. I'm not sure if this older James Pace had any connection to your James F. Pace.
