Dr. Andrew W. Tracy


Dr. A. W. Tracy died Monday

Suffered from Fatal Disease since August

Mayor in 1892

Practiced Medicine in Meriden since his college days


Dr. Andrew W. Tracy, mayor of Meriden in 1892, and a practicing physician in this city from his college days, died last night at 9.30 o'clock at his home 52 Liberty street. The doctor had been seriously ill since last August and recovery was hopeless. Arrangements for the funeral await the arrival today of his nephew, Dr. E.A. Tracy of Keene N.H.

The doctor has known all along that his illness would be fatal. Until October 18 he was able to be about the house, but after that date took to his bed and has been critically ill. His sustenance has been solely liquid nourishment. Fellow physicians have visited him often during his illness expressing their sympathy and helped to make his illness more bearable. He was conscious to the last, passing beyond peacefully and devoid of suffering. He was 71 years old.


Studied for Priesthood


Dr Andrew W. Tracy was born in County Galway, Ireland, in 1846. his parents were engaged in farming and when the son was three years old they came to America and settled in Island pond, Vt., which is less than 80 miles from the Canadian border.

The father had a fair-sized farm and was for some time engaged in railway work for the Grand Trunk railroad. The boy attended the country school of the community. He decided to study for the priesthood and entered the Sulpician college at Montreal. He perused the course for several years at this Catholic institution but just before taking holy orders he changed his mind about a future profession and returned to his home at Island pond.

Later he returned to Montreal for the purpose of entering McGill University to study medicine. He was graduated when about 24 years old and began his first practice at his home town. Shortly afterwards, in 1872, he came to Meriden and has practiced here ever since.

Fellow Physicians


Among the physicians who were then practicing in Meriden were Drs C.H.C. Davis, D.H. Catlin, John Tait, G.H. Wilson and Mansfield. Dr. Tracy established a lucrative practice in a short time. Always active and interested in public affairs the doctor was soon in demand. He was affiliated with the Democratic party and in 1888 and 1889 he represented the First ward in the city council, having been a candidate on the Democratic ticket.

His party thought so highly of him that in 1890 he was their candidate for mayor. He was defeated, however, by Benjamin Page, republican, by only 61 votes. In the next city election in 1891, Dr Tracy was again advanced as a candidate, his opponent being Dr. G.H. Wilson, republican. Dr Tracy was elected by a margin of 25 votes. Among the notable constructive features of his administration was the installation of the newer disposal plant.


At Town Meetings


He was again a candidate for mayor in 1892 but was defeated by Dr. Wilson by nine votes. Dr. Tracy was for many years a member of the town school committee, retiring about 10 years ago. He was a man of strong convictions which he was wont to register at the annual and special town meetings for the past two decades. Sometimes he was on the winning side but he was sure to be heard from on some important issues. Late years he had not been particularly active in the Democratic party although holding consistently to Democratic principals all his life.

He was a faithful member of st. Rose's church and was vice president of the Holy Name society. He was one of the first presidents of the Amaranth club and his interest in the club never lagged. He was a daily visitor at the club and enjoyed playing cards with his fellow club members or debating questions of the day with them.

He was a charter member of Silver City council, K of C and general physician of that order. At one stage he served on the State board of Charille[?] under a Democratic governor.


Lost Wife and daughter


He married Miss Ella Broderick of Willimanth and the Tracy hole for many years was at 5[?] Liberty street. the death of his wife was followed several years afterward by the death of his beloved daughter, Molly, and ? the double loss. In memory of his daughter he gave a memorial for her to St Rose's parochial school in the form of a Molly Tracy prize for essay work for which each graduating class competed. A brother of the doctor's, John Tracy, died the third week in October following an operation at St. Louis Mo. The doctor was the last surviving member of his family, a sister having died 20 years ago and another brother, Charles, having died about 10 years ago. John Tracy was a locomotive engineer for 25 or 30 years with the Grand trunk railroad. The doctor leaves a nephew Dr. Edward Tracy of Keene N.H. and several nieces in St. Louis, all children of his brother, John.

The doctor's native honesty, his firm convictions and his public spirit made him well liked by the community in which he spent so much of his life. As a friend he was staunch and true. Because of his prominence in the community both as a physician and as a public spirited citizen, his loss will be deeply felt.


Ill since August


The doctor has been feeling indisposed since last August. the first indication of disease came in difficult of speech. At the request of friends he committed with Dr. Verdl of New Haven and was told that his condition was such that medical science could not effect a cure. he has been confined to his home many weeks. He has been failing gradually being compelled to depend upon liquid nourishment for sustenance. His fortitude in the face of fatal illness has been typical of the man.

May 13, 1910 Essex County herald. (Guildhall, Vt.)

Dr. Tracy of Meriden, Conn., and John E. Tracy of Lancaster, N. H., came Monday to attend the funeral of their father, Michael Tracy. James Tracy of New York, the adopted son of Charles Tracy, also came to attend the funeral...

Michael Tracy.

Michael Tracy, nearly ninety-four years old, our oldest citizen, died at the home of his son Charles, Sunday afternoon, May 8, 1910. Last August Mr. Tracy fell from his bed, breaking his hip, and since then has been confined to his bed, enjoying comparative comfort until within a week when gangrene patches developed, reducing his remaining strength, and he died of heart failure, survived by three sons, Andrew, (Dr. Tracy) of Meriden, Conn., John E. of Lancaster, N. H., and Charles, and one sister, Mrs. Kate Deveny. One son died in infancy, and a daughter, Mrs. John Holloran, died a few years ago. His wife died September 13, 1895.

Mr. Tracy was born in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland, September 1816, and was married December 1839 to Julia Hannon in Ireland. In 1847 they with their children came to this country, settling in Boston, where he was employed in the construction of the first waterworks. Two years later they moved to South Paris Me., when the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad was in process of building, Mr. Tracy assisting in the stonework. As the work advanced the family located at Bethel, Me., and Gorham, N. H. From the latter place they moved to Wells River, and finally settled in Island Pond in 1852. Soon after the completion of the road to Island Pond he was appointed night watchman at the station, a position he held until he retired in 1872. His brother Peter was night watchman at the engine house during this period.

Mr. Tracy had no opportunity in his youth to attend school, but he possessed a wonderful retentive memory, and could entertainingly relate many reminiscences of local and historical events. Recognizing the great benefits of education he was insistent that his children should have the best privileges the schools could give.

Before coming to this country he was one of the original signers of the Father Matthew pledge, signing it before Fr. Matthew himself. When local option was recognized and the sale of liquors permitted here in 1903 he was invited to go and have a gifts of wine, but he refused, remarking, "I have never seen the inside of an American bar, and don't want to at this late day." Yet at one time he was placed under arrest, under peculiar conditions, charged with selling. The Congregational Church was being built (it was at a time when the Neal Dow prohibition movement enthused many towns and villages, Island Pond among the rest), and a man working on the roof was sunstruck. The nearest house was Mr. Tracy's and he was taken there. Mrs. Tracy seeing his condition revived him with some liquor For this her husband was arrested. A hearing was had at the Island Pond House, and he was convicted and fined, although the only witness, an unwilling one, declared he did not know what he drank. Mr. Tracy refused to pay the fine. Mrs. Tracy, learning the situation her husband was in, went, to the hotel in question and demanded to be taken care of, she and her children. This was too much and later Mr. Tracy was allowed to go home, which was the last he heard of the matter.

Contrasting the conditions existing in railroad work then and now, Mr. Tracy once informed us that the engines all burned wood in the early days, 16 inch wood, and two men with bucksaw cut and loaded the tenders of the engines running west, besides at times assisting the two freight handlers to push cars on and of the spur of the freight shed, which stood on the site of the present new station.

His activity until his accident, his strict integrity, his generosity and un stinted kindness to his friends, his sociability, and above all his Christian life, made him a host of friends. He was a fine old Irish gentleman.

His funeral was largely attended Tuesday morning at the Church of St. James the Greater, where a solemn high mass of requiem w a celebrated by Rev. Fr. Trottier and many accompanied the remains to their last resting place.
