Shared note

"David Nace was born on his father's farm near Halifax, PA. As a young man he learned the carpenter trade, then was in Jacksonville, Ill. for a short time, afterward coming to Chambersburg, PA about 1859. Here he clerked in the store of Elias Hoke. After serving in the Union Army during the Civil War, he came to McConnellsburg, PA, where he and Mr. Jacob Hoke opened a general store. His Army service was with Co. A, 126th PA Volunteers. Mr. Elias Hoke -or rather the firm signing 'J. Hoke and Co.' gave David Nace the following letter of recommendation: The bearer, Mr. D. B. Nace, has been in our employ five years as a salesman. and we unhesitatingly testify to his honesty, integrity, punctuality, and excellent business qualitites. We have never had in our employ a young man of such excellent business qualities as Mr. Nace." Later, he went into business for himself, building the house the First National Bank now owns-and where he had his store. He was very sucessful, later organizing the first bank in Fulton County-The Fulton County Bank. In 1894 he and his family removed to Chambersburg. Here he was in the mercantile business for a year or two, then helped organize and was treasurer of the Chambersburg Trust Co. for several [years]. He was a member of the board that organized and built the Chambersburg Hospital and was business manager of the hospital for several years. He was a devoted member of the Methodist Church, deeply religious, always a leader-and Superintendent of the Sunday-Schools both in McConnellsburg and in Chambersburg. He was very quiet, an austere reserved man of absolute integrity, respected by all who knew him. He is buried beside his wife in Cedar Grove Cemetery, Chambersburg, PA. He was a slight man but of remarkable physical stamina, never ill, living to be more than ninety-five years of age and keeping all his faculties to the last."
