Mary G. "Mamie" (Tracy) White Boyles was born on Oct. 23, 1869 in Lawrenceville, Lawrence Co., Illinois. She was the daughter of Edward Tracy (1844-1903) and Mary Jane Mieure (1850-1872). Her parents were married in Lawrenceville, Lawrence Co., Illinois on Dec. 2, 1868.
Mamie's father Edward was born in Vincennes, Knox Co., Indiana. He was the son of Alvin Waterman Tracy (1807-1851) and Lucinda Thorn (1810-1865). Alvin was born in Buffalo, New York, Lucinda in Vincennes, IN. Both died in Vincennes and are buried in the Vincennes City Cemetery.
Mamie's mother Mary Jane Mieure was born in Lawrenceville, Lawrence Co., Illinois. She was the daughter of William A. J. Mieure (1824-1861) and Sarah Isabell Fyffe (1830-1878). Both were natives of Lawrenceville, Lawrence Co., Illinois and both are buried in the Lawrenceville City Cemetery.
Jane died on Feb. 28, 1872 at the young age of 21 leaving behind two young children. Mamie was just 2 years old and her brother William "Will" Tracy (1871-1942) was just eight months old. Their father Edward did not remarry until 1878.
During the time Edward was unmarried Mary and her brother Will were cared for by their mother's teen-age sisters, Ada Mieure (1857-1926) and Sarah "Sadie" Mieure (1859-1940)
Jane's father Edward married his second wife Jacqueline Converse "Lena" Coburn on Aug. 5, 1878. Edward was 34, Lena 24. They were married in Lawrenceville, IL. Lena was the daughter of John Andrew Coburn (1823-1896) and Cornelia Lee Converse (1833-1859). Lena was born in Maysville, Mason Co., Kentucky,
On Feb. 18, 1896 Mamie married Jesse Kilgore White, Sr. (1857-1918) in Lawrenceville, Lawrence Co., Illinois. He was 38 years old, she 26.
Jesse was the son of Austin G. White (1829-1874) and Jane Dubois (1831-1885). Jesse's mother Jane was the daughter of Jesse Kilgore Dubois I (1811-1876) and a granddaughter of Toussaint Dubois Sr. (1751-1816).
Jesse and Mamie had only one child during their marriage. The child, named Jesse White Jr. after his father, was born on Sept. 29, 1897 but died less than two months later. He was buried in the Lawrenceville City Cemetery.
Mamie's husband Jesse died on May 6, 1918 in Lawrenceville at the age of 60 and was also buried in the Lawrenceville City Cemetery. He and Mamie had been married for 22 years.
In the early 1920s Mamie moved to Zepherhills, Pasco Co., Florida where her aunt Sarah "Sadie" Mieure Parker (1859-1940) had moved after her marriage to Charles H. "Charlie" Parker (1846-1938) about 1920. When Mamie was growing up Sadie had been like a mother to mother to her and they were very close.
It was there that Mamie met and married widower Augustus Clingman "A.C." Boyles (1867-1936). A.C., a native of Lincoln Co., NC and formally a doctor, had given up his medical practice in North Carolina for farming in Florida.
A.C. was the son of Rev. Marcus Wrightman Boyles (1842-1892) and Susan Wood (1846-1895). Like their son A.C., both were born in Lincoln Co., North Carolina.
AC's paternal grandfather was Rev. Josiah Adolphus Boyles and his paternal great-grandfather was Rev. John Boyles. A.C.'s father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all Methodist circuit preachers in North Carolina.
About a year after their marriage in Bradenton, Manatee Co., Florida, Mamie and AC moved to the Mt. Airy area of Surry Co., NC where A.C. started up a new medical practice as a contract physician for the rock quarries in that county. They soon purchased a small farm in Oak Grove, a small community just outside Mr. Airy.
Mamie's husband A.C., she always called him "Doctor", suffered a massive fatal heart attack and died on Jan. 28, 1936 while tending stock in his barn. His eight year old daughter Dorothy was with him at the time.
A.C. was 68 years old when he died. He was buried in the Maplewood Cemetery in Durham, Durham Co., North Carolina, next to his first wife Anna "Anne" Coggin (1862-1914).
After her husband's death Mamie and her daughter Dorothy returned to the Tampa Bay area of Pasco Co., Florida. When her aunt Sadie died in 1940 she left her house on 13th street to her then twice widowed niece Mamie. Due to health reasons Mamie eventually moved back (around 1944) to her hometown of Lawrenceville, Lawrence Co., Illinois.
Mamie died on Dec. 22, 1945 in Lawrenceville, IL at the age of 76. She was buried in the Lawrenceville City Cemetery close to her first husband Jesse White.
