The Traceys of Cavan can trace their history back to the beginning of historical records, as they were of the Cenél Eóghain.

May 25, 1861 Cavan Observer

A light-fingered gentleman who gave his name as Patrick Tracy, was brought up, charged on informations with having stolen a half-sovereign and 17s. 6d. in silver, from the person of Bernard Hill. Mr. Tracy, according to his own statement, was a model of innocence, requested the Court to pay particular attention to his case, had cross-examined Hill with the ability of an Old Bailey lawyer; but Hill, though rather simple-looking, succeeded in convincing the Court that, whether accidentally or otherwise, Mr. Tracy had abstracted the cash from his pocket. The Court accordingly sent Mr. Tracy for trial to the Quarter Sessions, despite the solemn protest of that gentleman that it was a great shame to do so.

 

June 29, 1861 Cavan Observer

CAVAN QUARTER SESSIONS

Patarick Tracy was indicted for having at Cavan on the 14th of May, assaulted Bernard HILL, and stolen from his person a cap, value 2s. 6d., a purse value 1s., and containing half a sovereign and 17s. in silver.

The prisoner pleaded not guilty. He was undefended....Bernard HILL was the only witness examined for the prosecution. The particulars of the case were given in our Petty Sessions report at the time the prisoner was committed for trial...The jury found the prisoner guilty.

 

July 6, 1861 Cavan Observer 

Margaret Carmichael and Mary Tracy appeared to answer the complaint of Susan Masterson for having assaulted her, and robbed her of 2s. The Chairman said he could scarcely believe the evidence of his senses; he had seen Susan so often in the character of defendant that he never deemed it possible that she could appear in any other role. This remark elicited only a grim smile from Black-eyed Susan, and a declaration that she had "right good cause to complain.".....She was in the nursery of the Workhouse when Mesdames Carmichael and Tracy laid violent hands upon her, knocked her down, displaced her head-dress, searched her hair, and finally stole her purse, containing six shillings of the current coin....The plunderers ran out to the yard with their booty, leaving her extended on the nursery floor They subsequently gave her back the purse and four shillings, retaining the other two....The two shillings were not found on the persons of the accused, and one of them stoutly asserted that they only found four shillings and threepence--halfpenny in Susan's purse, every penny of which they returned....The Court only dealt with the assault, for which they sentenced Mesdames Carmichael and Tracy to two months' imprisonment each. Susan look as if she would have preferred the restitution of the "tiu" to the incarceration of her assailants...

 

May 17, 1862 Cavan Observer

Dr. Humphrys v. High Tracy

The plaintiff, Dr. Humphrys of Ballyhaise, summoned defendant for refusing to give up a tax cart which had been given to him for repairs some months previously, and which was repeatedly asked for by Dr. Humphrys. The Court allowed defendant three weeks to finish the repairs of the tax cart.

1862 Cavan Observer

Belturbet Petty Sessions Saturday, Nov. 15

Dr. H. G. Humphrys a. Hugh Tracy

This was a summons for refusing to give up a tax-cart left for repair.

Mr. Knipe, who appeared for the defendant, said the magistrates had no jurisdiction, the price of same being over £5.

Mr. Armstrong appeared for Dr. Humphrys.

Hugh Tracy summoned Dr. Humphrys for £3 17s 6d for the repairs of a tax-cart.

Mr. Knipe--This is the tax-cart for which we are summoned for refusing to give up, and we are quite willing to give it any time we are paid for the repairing of it.

Tracy was then sworn, and proved the amount of his claim, at the same time handing a bill of particulars to the court.

Mr. Armstrong stated the case for the defence, as he was instructed, that some time ago Dr. Humphrys bargained with Tracy  for a tax-cart, of a particular description, then named, for a sum of £6. The tax-cart, when finished, Dr. Humphrys said was not what he had bargained for, and Tracy said he would make any changes Dr. Humphrys thought necessary. Dr. Humphrys returned the tax-cart to Tracy to have those changes made, and now to his surprise he asked to pay no less a sum than £3 17s for what he was to have originally received.

Dr. Humphrys was then sworn, and deposed to the facts stated by Mr. Armstrong.

A witness named Monahan, produced on behalf of Tracy, proved distinctly that he heard Dr. Humphrys state to Tracy he would pay him whatever his charge was for doing the repairs.

After a few words from Knipe, The Court said he would adjourn the case for a week; in the meantime the case could be settled. He also stated he would give them some assistance himself to do so.

Both parties stated that they would leave the case to him to settle.

The court then adjourned.

Sowans were also used in the making of bread. The most complete recipe I have for this use of them is from T. Tracey, Cootehill, whose mother made them as follows at the turn of the century in the Mountain Lodge area of Kill, Co. Cavan. "Put a lb. or two of oatmeal in a crock of water and the same quantity of 'seeds'. Put in two boiled potatoes and leave for two or three days, stirring occasionally. It will 'barn' (ferment) and it was used for making bread". Strangely enough she used the word 'flummery' to describe the above mixture, minus potatoes, when eaten raw or boiled. In a neighbouring area treacle was added instead of potatoes.

Tressy/Tracy family of Cootehill/Tullyvin

Looking for the family of a Philip Tressy of Cooney's Row, Cootehill, he died there on 5 Jan 1867 - I think his wife might have been an Elizabeth Mulligan.
His son Thomas born about 1854 - later Tracey - married Catherine Reilly on 20 Nov 1877 at St. Pat's, Carrickallen.
Lived 1901 at Tievenamass, Tullyvin, and 1911 at Drumnatread, Tullyvin.
Twelve of a family - James 1887, Margaret 1889, Michael and Thomas (twins) 1892, Francis 1896, John 1887, Edward 1898 and Bernard 1900, others must be born 1877-1887.
I have a connection from Thomas 1892, died in Coventry in 1961.
Are there any relations in the area ??
Where is the nearest chapel which might have records ?

William Tracey

I have an ancestor called William Tracey, who was born around 1831 in Drum Ewen, Ireland. He later married Mary McGuire and had a daughter called Rebecca, born about 1857 in Greenock, Renfrewshire, Scotland. I need to find out where Drum Ewen was or is today. Or would like to hear from anyone researching the above names in that area.
Ann-Marie Gillard May 09, 1999

Can't locate "Drum Ewen" but might possibly be "Drumgoon", a parish in the barony of Clonkee, county Cavan. [Drumowen Tyrone?]

James M. Tracy, postmaster and merchant, East Smethport, was born in Philadelphia, Penn., in April 1844, a son of Edward and Bridget (Riley) Tracy, natives of County Cavan, Ireland. They came to Philadelphia from their native land, but, thinking a newer country better adapted to their needs, came to Keating township, McKean county, in 1842, and purchased a tract of land for a farm. They were the parents of seven children, James M. being the third son, who during his youth attended the common schools and worked upon the farm. After his marriage, Mr. Tracy remained upon the farm with his parents until September, 1876, when he came to East Smethport, where he erected the building he now occupies, and engaged in mercantile business. Mr. Tracy married in June, 1863, Miss Ann, daughter of Bernard and Ann (Gallagher) Burns, natives of Ireland, who came to Union City, Erie Co., Penn., in 1845. Five children have blessed this union, viz.: Thomas A., Mary E., Lillie E., Annie E. and Paul E. In July, 1885, Mr. Tracy was appointed postmaster at East Smethport, which office he still retains. In politics Mr. Tracy is a Democrat, and he and his family belong to the Catholic Church.

 

In June, 1873, Andrew Tracy signed the roll of attorneys...Andrew Tracy, a young lawyer of Smethport, was tried in February, 1879, for the murder of his cousin, Miss Mary Reilly, at Smethport. District Attorney S. W. Smith, M. F. Elliott and W. W. Brown represented the State, while C. B. Curtis, A. B. Richmond, George A. Jenks, A. G. Olmsted and N. McSweeney defended. He was found guilty of murder, and, in April, sentenced by Judge Williams to death. The Judge, in passing sentence, said: “The victim was a friend, not an enemy; a relative by blood; a modest and lovely woman, whose only offense was that she had struggled to overcome her affection for you, from a sense of duty toward the church to which she belonged, and toward her parents whom she honored.” Every effort was made to save this unfortunate man, but the board of pardons refusing to interfere with the sentence the law was carried into effect in December, 1879. This tragedy of September 18, 1878, may be said to have broken up one of the most hospitable homes of McKean county.

 

In 1880, Thomas D. Nash came to Smethport, and same year married Miss Mary A. Tracy, a daughter of Edward and Bridget (Riley) Tracy, of Smethport, Penn. In May, 1883, he went to Harrisburg, Penn., under Hon. J. Simpson Africa, in the office of internal affairs, where he remained until May, 1887, when he returned to Smethport, and has here since remained, engaged in mercantile business. Mr. and Mrs. Nash are members of the Catholic Church.

11 December 1879 The Elk County advocate (Ridgway Pa) [Link]

Execution of Andrew Tracy at Smethport, Pa., Thursday, Dec 4, 1879

Andrew Tracy was born in Smethport, where he lived until he was twelve years of age. At that age he was regarded as reserved and thoughtful in manner, and this characteristic marked him in after years, He was never known to enter into any of the villuge sports, and at the school he at tended he was noted as a very studious boy. .Leaving home at twelve years of age, he entered the Allegany Divinity School, a Catholic institution in Cattaraugus county, where his eldest brother Rev. Michael Tracy, was then acting as u professor. Disregarding the earnest desire of his parents that he should enter the priesthood, as his two brothers had done, he re turned to Smethport in 1869, having determined to fit himself for the legal profession. After a brier visit to his parents he went to Conneautvill Crowford county, and became a law student in the office of S. J. Thomas. Here for two years his application to study was so close that he was rarely seen at social gathering, his acquaintance were few, and there were not many who did not lock upon him with favor. From Conneautville he went to Greenville and became connected with the office of A. D. Gillespie. It was at this place that he made application to be admitted to the bar, passed a fine examination and soon after entered upon the practice of the law, going to Mercer and connecting himself with the office of Griffith & Mason. He entirely lacked business talent and never prosecuted his profession to the extent of having a case in court. His Intellect was of an introspective character, and he was only happy when buried in his books.

...His brothers, Rev. Michael Tracy, of Carrollton, Cambria county, and Rev. Thos. Tracy, of Greenville, Mercer county, Pa...The aged mother, four brothers and two sisters of the condemned passed nearly the whole of Wednesday in his cell...

Father Thomas (Urban) Tracy (1833 Cavan – 1915 Alabama)

 

Father Thomas Urban Tracy was born in August, 1833 [1836 USA biography] in the town of Virginia County Cavan, Diocese of Kilmore, Ireland.

 

He studied at St. Vincent's College and at Cleveland, Ohio. He was ordained in June 1858 for the Diocese of Erie and during that year became Secretary of  the Most Rev. Bishop Josue Young of St. Patrick's, Erie Pa. After 1864 he had charge of St. Francis Church, Clearfield Pa., and in 1867 he volunteered for the missions in Alabama. Saint Mary’s church Huntsville, became his headquarters at this time.

 

In 1868, he returned to the diocese of Erie and was appointed pastor of Saint Michael’s Church, Greenville, Pa. The record of the years of Father Tracy’s labors in Greenville is indeed meager. It was during Father Tracy’s pastorate that an extension as well as a gallery, belfry and bell were added to the original church. The cemetery was dedicated in the same (1869) year. Credit too must be given to Father Tracy for organizing a Catholic congregation in Jamestown and for building St. Bridget’s church there in 1874. He served St. Bridget’s congregation as a mission from St. Michael’s until his departure in 1876. Unfortunately, the oldest living parishioners were mere children when he left here to become a member of the Order of Saint Benedict, and they can remember little more than his kindly countenance.

 

In the latter year, Father Tracy felt himself called by Divine Grace to the monastic life, and accordingly he made application at St. Vincent’s Abbey to be accepted as a member of the Order of Saint Benedict.  He was canonically received as a novice on August 23, 1876, and made his first vows on August 24, 1877. Abbot Boniface Wimmer assigned him first to Sacred Heart church, Saint Mary’s, Elk County, and then to Saint Malachy’s Priory, Creston, Iowa, to assist in its missions.

 

During the next years he became attached to St. Benedict’s Abbey in Kansas. In April, 1883, Father Urban Tracy, O.S.B. became pastor. Mooney Creek, Kansas, a mission ten miles southwest, had heretofore been attended on one Sunday of the month by the pastor of St. Patrick‘s. During Father Urban’s time, this mission obtained a resident priest and St. Patrick‘ s received regular services on all Sundays and Holy Days of obligation. Father Urban renewed the tin roof on the church belfry at a cost of $75.00 and reduced the old debt to $1500.00. He was a most zealous priest and very kind and considerate. He would rather give than take. He was beloved by all and a special friend to the afflicted and needy.

 

In 1885 he was transferred to the Priory of St. Joseph’s, Covington, Kentucky, and in the following year he returned to Alabama, his canonical home for the rest of his life. He was first stationed in Tuscumbia and in 1887 succeeded the Rev. Benedict Menges, (who later became the first Abbot of St. Bernard’s, Alabama) as pastor of Huntsville. Here he joined the new Abbey in 1892 and in 1895 was appointed professor of Saint Bernard’s College. He continued in this post until 1900, at which time he assisted in the founding of a new Benedictine monastery at Gessen, Louisiana. From 1903 to 1909 he acted as chaplain of the hospitals at Birmingham and Montgomery. He celebrated his golden anniversary in the priesthood in 1908 at St. Bernard's College, Alabama.

 

At the age of seventy-three after having labored zealously for fifty-one years as secretary to Bishop Young, parish priest, and active Benedictine missionary, he retired to spend his last years in more complete contemplation with his confreres at Saint Bernard’s Abbey, Culman, Alabama. He died on June 13, 1915 and was buried in the College cemetery.

Edward/Bridget Tracy, 1844 Pennsylvania

I am seeking information on my line of Tracy's. Here's what I know --

Edward and Bridget (Riley) TRACY came from the Town of Virginia, County Cavan, Ireland in about 1842 to Philadelphia with two young sons. By 1844 they had moved to Keating Township, McKean County, Pennsylvania. They had five more children in Keating Township, where they lived until at least as late as 1880.Edward and Bridget Tracy’s children were:

1. Thomas - born in 1833 in Ireland

2. Michael Edward - born in 1840 in Ireland. Michael was a Catholic priest in various churches of NW Pennsylvania from the late 1860's until 1927 when he died in Corry, Pennsylvania. He built a school in Corry named St. Edward after his nephew Edward Murray Tracy (my grandfather.) The name of the school was later changed to St. Thomas to reflect the name of the church.

3. James M. - born in 1844 in Keating Township, PA. James married Ann Burns in 1863.Ann was the daughter of Bernard and Ann (Gallagher) BURNS, natives of Ireland. James and Ann Tracy had five children - Thomas A., Mary E., Lillie E., Annie E., and Paul E. Tracy. James was engaged in the mercantile business in East Smethport, PA where he put up a building. He was appointed Postmaster of East Smethport in July 1885 and held the office until at least 1890.

4. Mary - born in 1847 in Keating Township

5. Andrew - born in 1849 in Keating Township

6. Elizabeth - born in 1852 in Keating Township

7. John - born in 1854 in Keating Township. John was my great grandfather. He married Isabelle (Belle) Murray in the late 1870's.Their first child, Edward Murray Tracy, was my grandfather and he was born in Conneautville, Crawford County, Pennsylvania in 1880. John and Isabelle Tracy had four other children - Frances M., Mary Claire, George U., Paul M. and John Tracy.
