Church Dispute. Priest And Laymen Concerned

Trouble Due to Misunderstanding:.

DENILIQUIN (NSW), Thursday.

In the police court to-day a case was called in which the Right Rev. Monsignor Michael Joseph Treacy, of St Michael's Roman Catholic Church Deniliquin was proceeded against by Patrick William Maher, a for mer mayor of Deniliquin on a charge of having used insulting words inside the church on January 1. A further charge was laid by Maher against Monsignor Treacy of having used abusive language outside the church on the same day. Maher also charged Monsignor Treacy with having unlawfully assaulted him and James Michael Maher, son of Patick William Maher, also laid a charge against Monsignor Treacy of having used insulting words. A counter-summons was issued by Monsignor Treacy against J. M. Maher that he had allegedly used insulting words on January 1. On the application of Mr Eugene Gorman. K.C. (instructed by Messrs Sullivan and Kelly), who appeared for Monsignor Treacy, and of Mr. J. Y. Davidson (for Maher) Mr. G. Johnstone, P.M., agreed to strike the cases out.

Mr Gorman said that Mr. Maher and Monsignor Treacy desired the cases to be stuck out ,accompanied by the following statement Mr. Gorman said:-

"The two parties are members of the one congregation. Both are very estimable people, each affectcd with a certain strong will of his own. It is a blend of classic simplicity and Celtic expansiveness. The dispute arose at the church among the congregation concerned. In consequence of the disturbance of his church services at a time which was regarded as very sacred, Monsignor Treacy wrongly considered that Mr Maher had deliberately left the church at the time. In consequence, certain remonstrances were instituted in the course of which the cause of mutual complaint occurred. Monsignor Treacy wished to say that from the information in his possession he now realised that Mr. Maher had no intention whatever of deliberately disturbing the services. It was a misapprehension on his part, which he was unable to correct at the time. Things which ensued included the stopping of Mr. Maher from entering the church. This was based on something which Monsignor Treacy thought to be a fact, but which he knew now was not. He had been under a misapprehension, and now wished to express his regret to Mr. Maher. Mr Maher wished to say that any expression which he be used under provocation arose through a misunderstanding.

The Right Rev. Monsignor William T. Treacy, Protonotary Apostolic Vicar General of Wilcania, Australia. He was a native of Roscommon, and was educated at Summer Hill College, Athlone, and All Hallows Dublin, before his ordination in 1882. For a number of years he worked as a missionary in Goulburn and Deniliquin, New South Wales. He was appointed Vicar general of the Diocese of Wilcania in 1889, and on two occasions he was Administrator of the diocese during the absence of the Bishop. In 1902 he was made a Domestic Prelate to the Pope, and he returned home from Australia some time ago. He died on the 20th May 1938 in Dublin.

Monsignor Treacey. Deniliquin, Monday

A cable from Ireland announces the death of the Right Rev. Monsignor Michael Joseph Treacey, Prothonotary Apostolic, at the age of 83.

He was born at Rosscommon, Ireland. He studied for the priesthood at. Maynooth College, and came to Australia 55 years ago, His first mission was in the Goulburn diocese, where he remained about four years. He then went to Hay, as curate, and later succeeded Father Kieley as parish priest there. After about ll years at Hay. he came to Deniliquin as parish priest, where, for over 40 years, he guided the affairs of this parish. In February last, Monsignor Treacey left here on a health trip to Ireland.

 

26 May 1938 Riverine Herald (Echuca, Vic.)

OBITUARY

Monsignor Treacy

Tho death occurred in Ireland, last Friday, of the Rt. Rev. Monsignor Treacy, of Doniliquln, who was well and favorably known In Echuca and district.

The deceased prelate left Australia a few months ago on a visit to Ireland, in the hope that the trip would improve his health, following a serious accident in Melbourne last year. The late Monsignor studied for the priesthood in Ireland, and 56 years ago he came to Australia and was stationed for practically the whole of that time in the Hay and Denlliquln districts. He was also Vicar-general In Wilcannla Diocese for some time. He also held the very high honor of being a Prothonotary Apostolic, be stowed upon him by His Holiness The Pope.

The decensed was 84 years of ago, and he will be mourned by a very wide circle of his parishioners and members of the Protestant donominations. A man of outstanding ability, he possessed: a genial personality, and although outspoken at times ho al ways took a broad view of life and a sympathetic understanding for those who differed with him.

 

1938-39 All Hallows Annual

It was granted to Monsignor Michael J. Treacy, P.P., of Deniliquin, Wilcannia-Forbes, to die in Ireland after more than half a century of priestly work in Australia. The privilege of dying in Holy Ireland was not sought by him. He was still active and vigorous and had merely come to visit some relatives. Despite his apparent health and energy, the long journey must have taxed his strength and the end came in May, 1938.

We cull the following from the obituary notice that appeared in the Melbourne Advocate :

“ A native of Roscommon, Monsignor Treacy was eighty-three years of age. Coming to the Australian mission fifty-five years ago, his first labours were in the Goulburn diocese. After four years at Goulburn, he transferred to the diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes, which had just been established, with the late Dr. John Dunne as the first Bishop.

“ Father Treacy, as he then was, was appointed assistant priest at Hay, later becoming pastor. After eleven years at Hay, he went to Deniliquin as parish priest. For forty years he was in charge of the parish—a record seldom equalled. In 1901 he was appointed a Domestic Prelate to the Holy Father with the rank and title of Monsignor— a Papal honour he had held longer than any other living priest in Australia. In 1926 he was appointed a Protonotary Apostolic.

“ A man of very strong personality and force of character, the deceased prelate had a brusquerie and directness of speech and manner which masked his essential kindliness of heart. He had definite opinions, and was not afraid to express them in any company—for he had the courage of these opinions.

“ Many stories are told of Monsignor Treacy, for he was, in many ways, an original, and it is around such striking and picturesque personalities that stories tend to gather.

“ But the best stories, and those by which his memory will most enduringly be kept green, are accounts of his real generosity and genuine, impulsive kindness. Living as he did so long in the West and Far West of New South Wales, he knew many types of people—and all sections of the community respected him. To pastoralists, selectors, bushmen, his was a well-known figure. And not merely a well-known one, for, knowing his true worth, they esteemed him, and not least for the bluff manner that was a mark of his character.

“ A worthy and zealous priest, Monsignor Treacy will be sincerely mourned.”

His Lordship Right Revd. Dr. Fox, Bishop of Wilcannia- Forbes, celebrated a Solemn Pontifical Requiem at the Cathedral in the presence of a large gathering of clergy and laity.

 

October 17, 2008 The Sydney Morning Herald - Harriet Alexander

Thy will be done - and it took only 70 years

The estate of a Catholic priest who died in 1938 will finally reach the people to whom it was bequeathed after 70 years of legal wrangling and inaction.

The gap between the death of Michael Joseph Treacy and the distribution of his assets is long even by the standards of a legal system marked by seemingly interminable pauses between court dates.

It has outlasted the executor of the estate, several solicitors, the judge who originally ruled on how it should be divided, Mr Treacy's sister, who was the primary beneficiary, and three of the charitable organisations that were to receive legacies after herdeath.

But Justice William Windeyer made orders in the Supreme Court yesterday that the fund - now worth $213,645 - be distributed to most of Mr Treacy's chosen organisations, saying he wished to bring the matter to a conclusion before he retired.

The 23 beneficiaries include the Pope, Catholic priesthoods and churches in Ireland, Italy and four Australian states. The bequests to an orphanage and a home for young mothers, long since gone, have been dispersed to the charitable funds that succeeded them.

Mr Treacy died with assets amounting to £10,312.

His dying wishes were complicated because he promised more than he could afford and his older sister had left him her estate, confusing which assets were his and which he held in trust for his sister.

A judicial enquiry settled that matter in 1948, but further questions over how the funds should be distributed arose, leading to a judge ordering that the disparate claimants be identified and consulted.

The Deniliquin solicitor who had handled the matter until that point "either gave up practising or gave up trying to bring the matter to any conclusion" when faced with this challenge, Justice Windeyer said in yesterday's judgment, and the will lay dormant for 15 years.

There was another burst of activity in 1970 when a new solicitor suggested that since that judge had retired, a new equity judge might make some more practical orders, but the matter petered out again in 1971.

"It might well have been a matter which … was handed to any new solicitor happening to arrive in that office as a new recruit who was told to do something to bring it to a head and failed to do that before he or she left that employment," Justice Windeyer said.

New proceedings were not commenced until last year.

2 Mr Michael Joseph Treacy made a will on 26 August 1936 and a codicil to this will on 12 February 1938. He died on 20 May 1938. [NSW, Australia]

5 The deceased was a Roman Catholic priest who, judging by the terms of will, came from Ireland. The estate was sworn as under the value of £10,312, which meant at that time that the assets in value added up to about £10,311. This might have created problems as by his will the deceased gave legacies to various relatives, friends and institutions for a total amount of well over that figure but the problem was overcome as I will explain. The gifts included the following gift which forms the subject matter of the present proceedings before me:

TO my sister Mrs. Bridget Watson Ballymurray Roscommon Ireland three thousand pounds (£3-000) ON TRUST the interest accruing from the said sum to be paid to her annually And if it should be less than One hundred pounds (£100) what will required to bring it to that amount will be taken from the (£3-000) on trust and added to the interest so that she may receive One hundred pounds (£100) annually And after her death what will remain of the Three thousand pounds held in trust by my executors will be distributed on the various charities hereafter to be mentioned in this Will.

Bill will live on in the hearts and minds of his loving wife of over 57 years, Joan, as well as his four adoring children, Bill of Providence, RI, Ann Hunnewell and her husband Robert of Dedham, MA, Leo and his wife Frederika of Wakefield, RI, and Michael and his fiancé Jessica of Denver, CO. He will also be remembered with deep affection by his five grandchildren, Alex, Caroline, James, Anika and Jackson.

A native of Providence and the youngest son of Patrick Austin and Helen (Vermelin) Tracey, he attended LaSalle Academy, Canterbury School and Providence College before his acceptance to Georgetown Law. His legal career would be cut short when duty called, and he went on to serve honorably in the Navy during the Korean War.

 

After completing his military service, his entrepreneurial spirit beckoned and he acquired the Cathedral Art Metal Company in 1960. Along with his son, Leo, he expanded Cathedral from a small local manufacturer to a multinational industry leader in inspirational gifts, jewelry and religious goods.

 

Bill was an avid golfer who competed at the highest levels of amateur competition in RI and across New England throughout the 50s, 60s and 70s. He was a lifelong member and former club champion of Metacomet CC, where he enjoyed many great friendships over the years, he was also a longtime member of the Kittansett Club and the Mid Ocean Club. In addition to being president of the Rhode Island Golf Association and president of the John P. Burke Memorial Caddie Scholarship Fund, he was also active in the founding and creation of the Button Hole Golf Facility, a charity focused on bringing the game to the less fortunate among us.

 

His philanthropic nature, natural kindness and empathy toward those in need will most certainly be missed. Bill was always a defender of people or groups he felt were being discriminated against or mistreated. Believing so strongly, as he did, in social equality for all people regardless of race, gender, or creed, he was compelled on many occasions to stand up and confront unfair treatment. These qualities served not only as life lessons for his children, they would also inspire many of the people he touched in his life.

 

Bill was a devout Catholic and benefactor of the Catholic Church; faith was an integral part of his life. Above all else, he was devoted to his wife and family. Well beyond any of his own accomplishments, he took a great deal of pride in the genuine pleasure his children, grandchildren and extended family derived from simply spending time together. His strength and unwavering love have always been the foundation for that bond, and as long as it lives on, so will his spirit.

Dr. Martin L Tracey Jr. (March 3, 1943 - February 23, 2021)

To the shock and sadness of many, the youthful, humorous and proudly eccentric Dr. Martin Tracey passed away on February 23, 2021, after a brief illness.  He spent his boyhood in Needham, Massachusetts, the oldest son in an Irish Catholic family of eight.

Dr. Tracey earned his PhD in Biology at Brown University, focusing on population genetics under the renowned Dr. Masatoshi Nei.  Soon after this, Marty traveled west with his young family, landing in Occidental, California, where he rented a ranch that came with a free donkey. For the next three years, he was the Director of Population Genetic Studies at the Bodega Bay Marine Lab(UC Berkeley). He did additional post-doctoral work as the first graduate student of another prominent geneticist, Francisco Ayala.

In 1977, Dr. Tracey took a faculty position at Florida International University in Miami and stayed for more than forty years.  A beloved teacher and mensch, he joyfully nurtured his students, many of whom went on to success in academia, medicine and other fields, often giving him much creditfor their careers as well as for igniting their passions for science.  In 1988, Dr. Tracey was recruited for a second career in the nascent field of DNA fingerprinting. In this pioneering work, Marty and one of his former students, Kevin McElfresh, partnered with State Attorneys’ offices around the country, helping establish the legality of forensic DNA testing.
