Birth: Jan. 1, 1840
Bradford County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jun. 30, 1908

Note: TRACY J. CHUBBUCK, farmer, P. O. Orwell, was born on the old homestead in Orwell township, this county, January 1, 1840, and is a son of Jacob Chubbuck. He passed his boyhood on the farm, and received his education in the common schools. On August 6, 1862, he enlisted in Company D, One Hundred and Forty-first P. V. I., and served in the ranks until just before the battle of Chancellorsville, when he was detailed on detached service, as a member of the brigade band. He was in the battle of Fredericksburg, while in the ranks, and was under fire in almost every engagement of the regiment subsequent to that; although scratched several times by both ball and shell he was never seriously wounded, though, being on detached duty, he was in many dangerous foraging expeditions. After seeing as dangerous and as hard service as almost anyone in the army, he was mustered out with his regiment, returned home and resumed farming, the first summer with his brother, O. J. Chubbuck, the next season on the Erie canal with his brother-in-law, George Crobutt, then for some time was in the West. Returning home, he was united in marriage, February 3, 1869, with Nancy M., daughter of Peleg and Mary (Seely) Tripp, of New York, whose family consisted of eleven children of whom six reached maturity, viz.: Seymore, Nancy M., William, Jonathan (deceased), Jacob and Emma (married to Nathan Grant). In 1869 Mr. Chubbuck purchased his farm where he has since resided. Rheumatism and heart trouble came to him through exposure during his term of service, which renders him unfit to do manual labor, but he oversees his farm which contains ninety acres of fine farm land. To Mr. and Mrs. Chubbuck have been born two children: Clarence T. (a jeweler, born January 24, 1872), and Cora E. (born February 24, 1877). The family worship at the Methodist Episcopal Church of Orwell Hill. He is a member of the Stevens Post, No. 69, G. A. R., at Rome, and has filled the chairs of junior and senior vice-commander; is a Prohibitionist, and has held the office of school director. Mr. Chubbuck has passed his life, with the exception of the time spent in the army, in this section, where he and his estimable lady have built up a large circle of friends, and are noted for their geniality and hospitality.
