 It's time to look in my digital image files to see what treasures I can find for my family history and genealogy musings for Treasure Chest Thursday.

The treasure today is the 1718 death record of John Tracy in Windham County, Connecticut:

The transcription of this death record for John Tracy is:

"[TRACY] John, Lieut., d. May 30, 1718, in the 85th y. of his age, [Vol.] 1 P[age] 11]"

The source citation for this record is:

 "Connecticut Town Death Records, pre-1870 (Barbour Collection)," indexed database with images, (, "Windham Vital Records, 1692-1850," page 350, John Tracy death entry, 30 May 1718.

This record is a Derivative Source, with Primary Information and Direct Evidence of the death of John Tracy.  The Original source is a Windham County record book that is not available online.  Volume 1, page 11, probably refer to the town record book.

John Tracy (1633-1718) was born in Duxbury, Massachusetts, the son of  Stephen and Tryphosa (Lee) Tracy. He married May Pence (1629-1711) in about 1658 in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  They had 5 children.

John and Mary (Prence) Tracy are my 8th great-grandparents.  I am descended through their son John Tracy (1661-1701), who married Deborah --?-- in about 1682.
