get old iMessages on new iPad?

I have never had trouble with other devices and do not remember doing anything specific other then signing in and having it all there. I received my new iPad Pro today and was got it setup, signed in for everything and all is great except that all my iMessages are not there. I get new messages so it is signed in correct, but group texts I have going, old texts that are on my iMac, MacBook Pro, iPhone, iPad Mini are not there. Tried google searching but did not get any help there.

I am wondering if part of the issue is I have 2 apple ID's on my devices and the new iPad. In the main section for Apple ID I am signed in with my work one which syncs my safari bookmarks, calendar, address book, etc etc. When I go to settings for iMessage and FaceTime I am signed in under my personal iCloud account. This is the same on all my devices so not unique to the new iPad but probably not the most typical setup and makes me wondering if this is causing the problem.

Any thoughts or solutions for how to get all my texts/messages on the new iPad?
