- The following appeared on 29 December 1891 in The Macon Telegraph: [fraught with errors] With the death of Mrs. Edward D. Tracey, which occurred Monday at the home of her son-in-law, Dr. John S. Baxter, another old resident and respected lady of this city has passed to the other side.
. Mrs. Tracey was the widow of the late Hon. E. D. Tracey, who was mayor of the city of Macon forty-five years ago and a most distinguished citizen, who did much for the city during his terms of office and in his private life.
The deceased lady, who at the time of her death was over 80 years old, was one of the most estimable of her sex, and in her more active days was ever foremost in the works which redound today to the credit of her name and the city which she loved so well. She was the mother of Brigadier General Edward D. Tracey and of Major Philip Tracey, both of whom where killed during the war in the service of the Confederacy, and were distinguished soldiers throughout their too short service. The former, Gen. E. D. Tracey, was the only Brigadier-General in the Confederate service whom Macon could claim as her own. Major Philip Tracey was killed at the battle of Gettysburg while with the Sixth Georgia regiment. Both were and even now are counted among the most brilliant orators and conversationalists that Macon and the State of Georgia have honored.
Mrs. Tracey was the mother of Mrs. William B. Johnson, and the grandmother of Hon. Tracey Baxter, Mrs. George Duncan and Mrs. W. H. Felton. She leaves behind her only two children, Mrs. William B. Johnson and Miss Hattie Tracey.
Old residents of Macon will find much in the history of the deceased lady to bring them back to the days of long ago.
