Ann Tracy Howe

Birth:      Dec. 24, 1832

Death:     Jan. 15, 1890

Obituary- Sun Prairie Countryman- Thursday, January 16, 1890

Mrs. Thomas Howe died at her home in Bristol yesterday morning. She had been a paralytic invalid for the past seventeen years and almost entirely helpless, being deprived of the use of one side and also of the power of speech. She arose, assisted by members of the family, in apparently her usual health, but was suddenly stricken and died shortly after, due, doubtless, from the communication of the disease to some vital organ. Deceased was 57 years of age. Funeral services will be conducted from the Sacred Hearts church in this village on Saturday at 10 o'clock

Obituary- Sun Prairie Countryman- Thursday, January 23, 1890

Mrs. Thos. Howe, the announcement of whose death appeared in this paper last week, was born December 24, 1832, in county Tipperary, Ireland, died January 15th, 1890. She removed to this country in early life and settled at Salina, N.Y., where she was married to Mr. Howe April 25, 1852, and from which place they immigrated to Wisconsin in 1854, locating in Bristol where she had since resided. Although for the past seventeen years almost entirely helpless from an attack of paralysis previous to that time hers had been a useful life.

Dennis Tracey & Julia Kane

My goal is to find out  where in Ireland 6 great-grandmothers & grandfathers came from.  I've looked at the name charts and they may have come from County Tipperary. I say this because the of Death Certificates:

Patrick DWYER, 1873, F:Anthony Dwyer, M: Mary Kennedy.  

Sarah TRACEY, 1925, F: Dennis Tracey, M: Julia Kane.

Is there an Index for those who left Ireland ports? The most reliable date for Sarah's emigration is 1855.  All dates and ages change as my Irish get older.  Pat died before he could list his emig.date in the census.

Dennis Tracey m. Julia Kane--Ire. 

Sarah, b. 1840 m. Patrick Dwyer (Anthony Dwyer & Mary Kennedy) in St. Louis, MO 1856. 

Sarah Dwyer m. Charles J. Almstedt St L 1889.

For several years following his marriage he was patrolman when the chief peace officer was the Town Marshal. Later he engaged in the grocery business and was successful. He retired sometime ago. During all his life Mr. Tracy was ardent Democrat. He served two terms of two years each as Councilman from the First ward tad during the administration of Mayor Henry A Burtt he was selected as a member of the board of Public Works. At the last session of the Indiana Legislature he was an assistant doorkeeper In the Senate.

John Tracey/Treacy & Catherine Murphy

John Tracey/Treacy was born 1811 Tipperary. He was in Halifax Nova Scotia in 1836 because he married my x3grgranmother, Catherine Murphy just over from Ireland. Catherine had two brothers with her one was married. I would think John had family in Nova Scotia? According to Catherine's own words they went for a while to States then came back here (St.Thomas area Ontario, Canada). Births of children are 1838-40's:
Mary Margaret Tracey m. Michael Coveney (same area),

Bridget (dissapeared after 1880),

John m. Mary Ann Casey (same area)

James (never married)

Katherine never married went to States (Detroit Mich). They may have relatives over there.

There is a write up about Catherine (Murphy) Tracy who came over April 10 1834 left out of Dublin.They had Cholera and then were shipwrecked just off coast of Newfoundland.They finally got taken to Halifax where she married John Tracey of Tipperary,Ire. They went to states for short time then settled in elgin Co., She was born in town of Oklamonway (the place of the Fine Ford) She was orphaned at two and lived with her grandparents.Her father was Charles Murphy. She had at least two brothers as they came over too.

Timothy Thacey

   Timothy Thacey, one of the enterprising and representative agriculturist of Cherokee county, is the owner of an excellent farm of one hundred and sixty acres on section 9, Marcus township. HIs birth occurred in La Salle county, Illinois, February 12, 1873, his parents being Michael and Mary (Mahoney) Thacey, both of whom were natives of County Tipperary, Ireland. The father emigrated to the United States at an early day, locating in New York, where he remained for some time. Subsequently he made his way to Illinois and in that state was engaged in coal mining and teaming for a time. He next turned his attention to general agricultural pursuits, cultivating rented land in La Salle county until the time of his removal to Plymouth county, Iowa, where he operated a rented farm for six years. On the expiration of that period he came to Cherokee county and purchased the tract of one hundred and sixty acres on section 9, Marcus township, which is now in the possession of our subject. The cultivation and improvement of this property claimed his attention throughout the remainder of his life, his demise occurring January 8, 1908. In his passing the community lost one of its substantial agriculturists and esteemed citizens. His widow still survives and makes her home with her son Timothy.
   In the acquirement of an education Timothy Thacey attended the schools of Plymouth and Cherokee counties and after putting aside his text-books assisted his father in the work of the home farm until the latter's death. The property has since remained in his possession and in its operation he has won success, annually gathering good crops which find a ready sale on the market.
   On the 26th of April, 1910, Mr. Thacey was joined in wedlock to Mrs. Mary (Athmer) Unkruer, a daughter of Bernard and Caroline (Meemen) Athmer, natives of Germany, who emigrated to America as young people. They resided in St. Louis for some time and subsequently removed to Clinton county, Illinois, where they have since remained on a farm. Mr. Thacey has three children, namely: Michael, two years old; Bernard, who is in his first year; and Joseph, a stepson, who is fourteen years of age.
   Since age conferred upon him the right of franchise Mr. Thacey has supported the men and measures of the democracy, believing firmly in the principles of that party. In religious belief he is Catholic. Marcus township numbers him among her successful and respected citizens, and the fact that many of his stanchest [staunchest] friends are those who have known him from boyhood is an indication that his life has been at all times honorable and upright, worthy of the high esteem in which he is uniformly held.
