1. Michael TRACY
Born 1838 Wakefield Twsp, Quebec, Can, died ± 1862 United States, approximately 24 years
The 1851 census of Canada says he was 14 when taken, which would make his birth year about 1836 rather than 1838.
Michael died in the Civil War. However, the Civil War records haven't been found.
There are only two Michael Tracy's who died in the Civil War with death records. The closest is Michael Tracy born in 1837 in Bangor, Maine and died 19 August 1863 at the G H Baton Rouge, La Convalescent facility, and buried the same day in the national cemetery there. He was a private enlisted in Company K of the 14th Maine V regiment. There's another Michael Tracy, died 19 October 1864 in the Civil War and buried in the Winchester National Cemetery in Virginia. There are many other Michael Tracy's who enlisted in New York, and a few who enlisted in Maine.
2. Ellen TRACY
Born 9 Jan 1840 Wakefield, Quebec, Canada, died 13 sep 1920 Wakefield, Quebec, Canada, 80 years
The 1851 census of Canada has Ellen's age as 12, which would make her born in approximately 1838. It could be 1839 but not 1840.
We believe that Matthew Morris was not related to John Morris, the husband of Bridget Tracy.
The Cantley Catholic St Elizabeth cemetery was first built in 1868. It is located approximately 10 miles southeast of Wakefield. It's address is: 47 St. Elizabeth Road, Cantley, Les Collines-de-l'Outaouais R egional County Municipality, Quebec, Canada.
3. Mary TRACY
Born Oct 1842 Wakefield Twsp, Quebec, Can, died after 1910 Pope, Minnesota, USA, at least 68 years
The 1851 census of Canada shows that Mary was 9 years old, making her born in approximately 1842. Catherine is 7 in that census, so Mary is two years older.
4. Catherine TRACY
Born Feb 1843 Wakefield Twsp, Quebec, Can, died 20 Jan 1902 Fergus, Fergus, Montana, USA, 58 years
Catherine is 7 years old (b. ~ 1844) in the 1851 census of Canada, and two years younger than Mary. The 1880 census (U.S., Raymond Township, Stearns County) says she's 35, which would make her born about 1845. But then, Joseph and Patrick were born in 1845. No documentation has been found beyond the 1880 census, though others seem to have found death information, and they have her birth date as March 20, 1843 as well.

11. Sarah Margaret TRACY
Born 31 Dec 1857 Wakefield Twp, Ottawa, Quebec, Canada, died 13 sep 1910 Hobson, Judith Basin, Montana, USA, 52 years, buried Moore, Fergus, Montana
Sarah Tracy's husband, John Rooney, was a "double" first-cousin to her: Both her parents were siblings to his parents. She died in a TB asylum.
Sarah's Find-a-Grave says 1858 - September 13, 1910 - so a year off on both birth and death based on the gravestone. But the actual gravestone only gives her age, so the birth year is an estimate (and if born one day later it would have been 1858). The Montana death index gives her year of death as 1911. Her son Thomas S. Rooney, who died in 1916, is buried with the same grave marker.
