OUTAGAMIE COUNTY PIONRER RECORD.
country, constituted the sum of his scholastic studies. He
now devoted all his attention to his duties in the factory,
working his way up until he attained the position of fore-
man, which he reached in 1877 and which his merit still
entitles him to. An enthusiastic Democrat, he has worked
energetically in the interest of his party and in recognition
of his services he has been honored with several positions
of interest.  He was alderman from the Fourth ward of
Appleton from 1882 to 1890, and president of the council in
1887 and since 1882 also he has been school treasurer; in
1890 he was elected to represent the First District of Outa-
gamie county in lower house of the State Assembly and so
well did he satisfy his constituents that he was re-elected
in 1892. Few men of his age in this section of the county
have been more highly honored and few endeed have more
deserved to be so honored. Mr. Tracy was united in mar-
riage Nov. 18, 1870, with Miss Maggie Powers, a native of
Massachusetts and a daughter of William Powers, a farmer
who came to Appleton when his daughter, Maggie, was
three years of age. Six children have blessed this union,
named respectively: Eddie, Maggie, Kittie, Emma Agnes,
Mabel and Florence Tracy. Mrs. Tracy lost her mother
in 1885 and her father died in 1889.
