John C. Tracy’s Book – Part 1 of 5

John Colby Tracy was a son of Israel Tracy and Jemima Jones and was born in Tracy, in Sunbury County, New Brunswick in 1855. He married Elizabeth Bunker. John C Tracy and wife

John C. Tracy, and wife Elizabeth Bunker

Today, John C. Tracy is mostly remembered as the author of a handwritten manuscript, known as his Book, outlining Oromocto River genealogies and family histories. The book was donated to the Archives in Fredericton by his daughter Lola Harrison and has been transcribed into this blog in five parts, of which this is the first. The other parts will be placed on my blog at https://johnwood1946.wordpress.com at the rate of about one per week.

The book was produced between 1927 and his death in Fredericton Junction in 1937 and has been an important resource for very many people in tracking their family lines and stories. There are errors and misspellings, and some parts are difficult to follow. Some information was also added by other people later, but none of these problems detract from its value. Editorial notes are few, and are shown [thus].

John C. Tracy was more than his book. Those who remembered him are now also gone but, not too long ago, there were those who remembered him kindly. He married in 1880 because of all “the pretty girls that had been ushered in my presence none ever had really moved me like Lizzie Bunker”. He and Elizabeth raised a family of two boys and four girls and he and his descendants have helped to shape the history of the area and far beyond.  In his work life, John C. was a Section Foreman and an Extra Gang Foreman and, for a while, an acting Roadmaster for the C.P.R. There would be no railway today without the dedication of people like him. He remembered, for example, taking out iron rails and replacing them with steel. Iron rail: imagine! That was truly a remembrance from another era. His book has many such stories.

Thank you, John C. Tracy.

In the following, I shall try and give an account of the early families of Loyalists and others who settled on the North Branch of the Oromocto from 1784 to 1927 and being interested in the surname of my family. I begin with the so called Lieutenant Thomas Tracy who was born in England in 1610 and was the ninth son of a family of 21 children. I believe it was his grandfather Sir William Tracy who was one of the first of the nobility of England to accept protestant or reformed religion. He was a writer and talker and when he died he commended his soul to God through Christ as mediator and redeemer alone. His death was in 1529 his body was taken up in 1532 and burned as a heretic. He came to America in 1636 landing at Salem, Mass. He then went to Saybrook then to Norwalk …

The above mentioned Jeremiah and his wife were the pioneers of Tracys to New Brunswick. They came here from Gouldsboro Maine about 1784 with about five children. He died in April 1812 and his wife died in 1834 aged 90. Nearly all Tracys in New Brunswick are descendents of this family. A family of Morgans of Irish decent came on the same sloop. His brother Solomon paid him a visit in 1812 the only on of 13 family to call on him. These men were large men and we are …

(we are) tall men even now. This Jeremiah Tracy died in a log house on bank of Oromocto south side occupied 1927 by John Sanderson a part of Tracy homestead. His remains were taken down in a canoe to a cemetery on south of river and is buried with his wife on height of grave yard now occupied by Albert Tracy or within his farm limits. Of the above family of six sons and four daughters two of them Israel went to Ont. who married Annie Hoyt and Asa may have returned to Gouldsboro Me. his boyhood home. The other eight married and raised large families in this parish and county.

This Israel Tracy married Annie Hoyt a daughter of William Hoyt and wife Polly Isabel Hayward of England and christened in St. Paul’s church. This Wm. Hoyt’s family one son Wm. and 7 girls and John Hoyt who married Ruth Jones Born Nov 19, ????.

Israel Tracy & wife Annie Hoyt, Joseph Thomas and wife Rebecca Hoyt and perhaps more of this Hoyt family went to Ontario.
