Our Tracy Family Pedigree
Our Descent From Lt. Thomas Tracy of Norwich Connecticut
|Father||Jonathan Tracy (29 Apr 1742 - btwn 4 May 1803 - 12 Feb 1806); Research has been done on the direct line male descendants of Lt. Thomas Tracy through the sixth generation - i.e. the generation that would include the family of this Jonathan Tracy. As of February 2016 no records have been found giving definitive evidence for any children of Jonathan and his wife Mary. However real estate transfers in Steuben Co., New York, in the early 1800s that almost certainly involve this Jonathan make a reference to a Jonathan Jr., and there are other Tracy men, some siblings, named in the same immediate vicinity and context leading to the assumption that all of them are at least related. |
Knowing that this Henry Tracy was born in 1769 places him in sixth generation after Lt. Thomas Tracy. An accounting for each son's sons down through those generations after Thomas leaves only the Jonathan born in 1742 as the likely candidate to be the father of this Henry, born 1769. Recent DNA test results appear to confirm that a direct line back to Lt. Thomas Tracy is all but certain for Henry. Since Jonathan's ancestry has been well documented back to Lt. Thomas, and based on "the preponderance of the evidence" pointing to the parental connection between that Henry and this Jonathan, we can be reasonably assume this lineage is correct.
One researcher of this Henry's ancestral line makes the connection to Lt. Thomas Tracy by having him, Henry Tracy6, as the son of an un-named daughter of the Flack family and Jonathan Tracy5, son of Christopher4, son of Christopher3, son of Jonathan2, son of Lt. Thomas Tracy1. The well documented ancestral line from Jonathan, b. 1742, to Lt. Thomas is used as the basis of this Tracy Family History/Genealogy.
This Family History/Genalogy places this Henry Tracy here as it is the most reasonable conclusion that has been found for his parentage. BUT, this is still an assumption... based on considerable research1,2,3
|Mother||Mary Flack (c. 1745 - aft 1795); Mary is the name given for the wife of Jonathan Tracy in a 1787 deed for the sale of property in Orange Co., New Jersey. Another source for the wife of Jonathan, and presumably the mother of Henry, is an online genealogy for this Tracy family in which Jonathan's wife is shown to be the daughter of a Flack family. So quite possibly Jonathan's wife and Henry's mother was Mary Flack.3|

Apparently Mike's sources for ancestry of Johanthan back through Jonathan's father, Christopher, to Lt. Thomas Tracy are: Abbey's Tracy Genealogy, IGI, and the Ancestral File... both of these last are from the LDS. Care should be taken regarding information about the family of Jonathan Tracy (1742) is full of inaccuaracies... The data before and after that particular family seems to be okay.
