Marie Tracy (Tracey?), my great-grandmother, was born August 31, 1896 and died December 1, 1988. My great-great-grandfather Joseph Tracy (Tracey?) was born in 1859 in Ireland, and died December 11, 1943, my great-great-grandmother Maria (Moriah? Moira? Margaret?) Pilkington was born December 27, 1862 in Washington DC and died March 13, 1929 in St. Louis. My great-great-great-grandmother Ellen (maiden name Hardy) Pilkington was born in Ireland in 1838 and died in St. Louis on October 20, 1904 and my great-great-great-grandfather Robert Pilkington was born in Ireland in 1834 and died in St. Louis in 1900.
Joseph Tracy (Tracey?) had a father named Michael who was born in Ireland in 1834 and died in St. Louis in 1885, and his mother Mary (maiden name Delaney? Delany?) was born in Ireland and died in St. Louis, but no other information that I know of can be found on her.
Thank you so much for this help! I feel like I have been chasing my tail trying to make sense of things on here and on other sites.
