Notice of Guardian Sale, 1866
Submitted by Harry Dunlavy

My gggrandfather Captain Henry E. Tracy came to Lorain County, OH from Blandford, MA, I believe, between 1830 and 1840 with his wife Dolly Collester and I am not sure who else. I know he purchased land in Huntington in 1841 as I have the deed and it is recorded that he and Dolly sold land to the (Old) Huntington Center Cemetery in 1846 for $15. His wife died in 1848 and Henry married Harriet Elza Scott Keyes Stebbins in 1850. He was 60 years old and she was 25 years younger. Their sons Henry S., Frank Beecher (my ggrandfather) and Charles Sumner were all born in Lorain County. Henry died September 22, 1865. This newspaper clipping announces the public sale of the estate.
