James M. Tracy

St. Albans Daily Messenger
October 31, 1922
Col. James M. Tracy, for many years a resident of Middlebury, died at the soldiers' home in Bennington October 26, at the age of 77 years. He was a Civil War veteran, having enlisted in the 143rd Ohio regiment (sic) in 1864. He was a charter member of William P. Russell post, G.A.R. of Middlebury, and one of its past commanders. He twice served on the staff of the National Grand Army, commander and colonel. After the close of the war he engaged upon farming in Cornwall, removing from there to Middlebury. For a year and a half he had been at the soldiers' home.
