Aged Woman Dies at Home North of Lusk

Mrs. Margaret Tracy Taken Suddenly; Was Over 90 Years Old

Tuesday morning at 3 o'clock, Mrs. Margaret Tracy passed away at the home of her daughter, Miss Della Tracy, about twelve miles north of Hat Creek.

The remains were brought to the Austin, Elquest, Slack undertaking rooms for embalming and that evening, shipped to Indiana for burial.

Miss Tracy and Mr. Verne Parker, a neighbor, accompanied the body.

Mrs. Tracy (Margaret McFaddin) was born in Virginia in 1831, before the division of the state, and when four years of age, moved with her parents to Ohio, making the trip overland. In 1851 she was married to Arthur W. Tracy. To this union seven children were born, all of whom survive her. In 1888 this family moved to Indiana where later Mr. Tracy died, and five years ago Mrs. Tracy came to Wyoming with her daughter and had since lived here.

She joined the Methodist church over fifty years ago and all her life devoted much of her time to helping others.

For the past year her  health had been failing due to her advanced age of 92 years than to any special sickness.

The bereaved ones left to mourn her ate J.D. Tracy, Twelve Mile, Ind.; W.W. Tracy, Logansport, Ind.; Mrs. Laura Preston, Wabash, Ind.; S.C. and E.W. Tracy, both of Payette, Ida.; Miss Olive Tracy, Oklahoma City, Okla. and Miss Della Tracy, Lusk.
