Funeral services for Newton Pace, aged 66, member of a pioneer Northwest Arkansas family, native of Benton County, and an uncle of Miss Bess Pace, clerk of this county, who died Saturday morning, March 14th, 1936, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Elmer Henshaw, in Oklahoma City, were held here Monday afternoon in the chapel of the Burns Funeral home, conducted by the Rev. Edwin E. Mace of the Bentonville Presbyterian Church, assisted the Rev. J.Abner Sage, pastor of the local Methodist Episcopal Church, South.

The pallbearers were Arlie C. Beck, Frank Middleton, K.C. Campbell, Clint Crouch, Will D. Jackson, and Chas. D. Haney. Burial was in the Bentonville cemetery. The Burns Funeral Home of Bentonville was in charge of funeral arrangements.

Newton Pace was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Milt Pace, well remembered residents of this section for many years. He was born at the old Pace homestead a short distance southwest of Bentonville. He had lived in other states for many years and for the past several years had been a resident of near Lake Village in Chicot County, the extreme southeastern Arkansas county, where he was engaged in the growing of cotton and in other farm and business operations. He was visiting at the home of his daughter in Oklahoma City when taken seriously ill. His death was unexpected.

He is also survived by two brothers, Lon A Pace fo Bentonville and John B. Pace of Redstone, Mont.

Near relatives here for the funeral included his wife, two sons, one daughter, the son-in-law, Elmer Henshaw and Mrs. Boomer Pace, both of Oklahoma City, his brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Lon A Pace, who have been living at Benton, this state, the past few months, and his nephew and niece, Roy Pace and Miss Bess Pace of Bentonville.
