My ancestry has been a topic of blog conversation; the “Old German Baptist Brethren“ playing a predominate role. Documenting the ancestry of two granddaughters led me to one branch of their tree that overlaps my own (almost). My granddaughter’s “other grandmother” is Patricia Tracy and her second great-grandfather is James Tracy. One of my “cousins,” Otho Winger, wrote an eloquent biography about James Tracey. I hoped to attach the information here (but failed several times). I encourage the reader to click the following link, download and open, Biography of James Tracey. During that time frame, my great-grandparents lived in that locality and may have listened to this preacher. I searched Census records to see if my family members were a near-neighbor; apparently not.
