Dormady, Tracy (*1896 - 25 March 1926) * Could be off

Tracy Dormady, oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Dormady of Hewett, died at the Speedway hospital at Maywood, Illinois, March 25, 1926, aged 30 years, 4 months and 5 days. Tracy joined the army and went across and served almost two years in France and Germany. He was in several battles, one leg was badly shattered by bullets, and he was also gassed. Being exposed to all kinds of weather day and night, he contracted tuberculosis, and since returning home has been in very poor health.

In 1920 he was married to Miss Dorothea Von Grut of Hewett. They lived on their farm here a couple of years and then traded the farm for a large apartment house in Chicago, moving there in 1922. Tracy did what work he was able to do until the dread disease weakened his so he was not able to work for several months back, and he entered several different hospitals for soldiers, run by the government in Chicago, only staying a short time in each one, until he was finally sent to the Speedway at Maywood where spinal meningitis set in. He suffered terribly, being unconscious most of the time of late. His mother went down to see him and he knew her for only a moment. He leaves to mourn his death his wife, father and mother, five sisters and three brothers: Gladys in California and Francis in Alma Center, Frank at Contralia, Wash., Lyle, Dannie, Anna, Verna and Margie at home. Tracy was a good boy and will be sadly missed here where he lived all but the last three or four years of his life. His wife and mother were the only relatives who were able to attend the funeral which was held Saturday at one-thirty, burial took place at Oak Ridge Cemetery, Chicago.
