A Short Account of the Wild Passenger Pidgeon

I wish to give an account of the pretty and wild passenger Pidgeon as I saw them when a boy from Aug. 18, 1855 to the summer of 1882. I have gone out on a barren ridge of blueberries without seeing very few if any, perhaps 2 or 3 into a dead tree. All at once from some cause known only to them they would all rise, acres of them, hundreds, perhaps thousands. In summer 1882 I with 3 other men were on railway track about 200 yards west of Tracy Station, Sunbury Co., N.B. I saw a few, 4 or 6, flying over the mill pond of the Oromocto river going. My great grand, Richardson Webb, was born in Maryland, U.S.A.1758, was disbanded in St. John 1883, lived at Tracy, died 1848. He shot a pidgeon here and found rice in its crop. Had its breakfast in Alabama, perhaps. May, 1883 it so happened I was in Saint John. Also, 50 years later, or last May, I was there. – John C. Tracy

Colonel Beverly Robinson, senior went to England and remained there, his wife, the wife of Bishop Inglis, and that of Col. Morris, three daughters of Frederic Philips were banished from the United States under pain of death, and the large Phillips property opposite West Point on the Hudson was confiscated and was the foundation of the Astor fortune. Captain Frederic Phillips received a grant South West Rusiagornis. Copied from Daily Gleaner, Dec. 11, 1933.

Lieut. Garret Clopper was first registrar of deeds for YorkCounty, N.B. Also commissioner of roads with Stair Agnew. Another road commissioner marked out a road (or trail) from Fredericton to Saint Andrews in 1879. – From Daily Gleaner of Dec. 13, 1933

About 1821 Judge George Street shot and killed T.A. Rainsford Wetmore in a duel on Segee farm, Maryland. I got some of this history from Mrs. Lillian Maxwell’s in a Gleaner of Dec. 4, 1933. I added date of duel as above. Mrs. Maxwell says duel was on Segee farm, Marysville. I Think the Segee was in Maryland. I at the age of 13 went to Fredericton in winter of 1868 with my father Israel Tracy. He showed me the field in Maryland where duel was first fought. I was told that George Street asked Wetmore to settle the affairs and not use guns. – John C. Tracy

Ice Freshet of Mar. 4, 1871

March 4, 1834: Sixty years ago today in morning it was cloudy after sunrise and wind warm from south east warm and strong. Heavy rain began about 7 AM and rained until about 5 or later. Oscar, Cyrus, Richard and I, John C. Tracy, went home for dinner from the Nason school and dare not return in the afternoon across the river on account of ice might break up. It broke up about 5 PM. I do not remember of ice as thick as at this time, nor as hard as it was. So sudden rocks, gravel and sand came up with the ice. It piled it 2 and 3 cakes high. It left a large hemlock log in under works of the old iron arch railway bridge at F’ton Junction where it stayed for many days. I saw this log myself and this was Richard Tracy’s first day at school. Not much damage was done. All lumber drive from Big Lake was in Tracy mill pond on Mar. 12, 1871.

I believe it was Capt. Jeremiah Tracy who built first dam at Big Oromocto Lake. He had to widen the outlet forty or 50 rods or more so logs when they left the dam to be floated.

PS: The dam built by his father was & his saw mill went out with ice freshet on Apr. 5, 1895. – Dec. 19, 1934 John C. Tracy

Jeremiah Tracy born Jan. 26, 1809, the oldest of a family of 8 sons and 2 daughters of Capt. Jeremiah Tracy. He followed his father in cutting & sawing lumber from the age of 21 until his death at the age of 78. When he had men cutting lumber in Jan., 1887 he got up, made on the fires, went to basement to get things ready for camp. His granddaughter called him to breakfast. After that he went out to sled and put a board on sled, then he took hold of one stake. Now his nephew Abner Tracy saw him and said ‘are you hurt’. He said ‘no, I feel very bad’. These were his last words. He was dead. He did business for about 55 or 6 years. Never sued a man or had law suit. Paid all bills. Had a store and gristmill and his 2 daughters living in large house built in 1864. When he was in camp he always went out with men with 2 or 3 cakes in his pocket, cruise all day, came in with the men and always ate his lunch at supper. He never worked at driving lumber until he was 70. Water was low, he got what help he could get. He got in water every day and stayed all day for the last 3 miles. He never said he was cold or hungry. Never was sick a day as far as I know.

F’ton Junc. Aug. 19, 1934

I John C. Tracy when at the age of 13 or 14 and perhaps younger, while horsing with Oscar and Cyrus, my younger brothers, all barefooted, I locked my fingers half way. I jumped through between my hands forwards and backwards ten times without stopping and did it many times up to the age of 60 & 70; and I thought I could do it at 70, if I lacked it was courage. Then at 70, 71, 72, 75, 76 and 79th birthday or near it I took a straight stick or wire about 12 or 14 inches long in my hands and jumped through between my hands forward and backwards at least once, sometimes 2 or 3 times. I lacked courage at birthday of 80. There are living witnesses here that saw every trial 70th birth when I was alone.

  1. I found your article so interesting, Mr. Tracy. I would love to be able to purchase it either as a download onto my Kindle or a paperback. My grandfather was Charles Leonard Duplisea, son of Albert Lancelot Duplisea. Did you know you can publish your book on amazon.com free of charge?https://authorcentral.amazon.com/gp/help?ie=UTF8&topicID=200650270 Although I have a publisher, my own books are available on amazon.com

    Sincere regards,
