Tracy P Barnes was the son of Bartholomew Barnes 1798 and Polly Sara Pierce. His parents had moved from Connecticut to Genesee County, New York by 1825, and then to Alden, Erie County by 1827, where Tracy was born.
Tracy married Mary Prudence Cottrell, the daughter of Solomon Gates Cottrell, who lived very close to Bartholomew Barnes. Solomon had moved from Brookfield, Madison County, New York to Newstead, Erie County, New York by 1835, and to Alden, Erie County, New York by 1837.
Tracy and Mary Prudence were married in Newstead, Erie County, New York, on November 1, 1851.
The couple lived in Alden, Erie County, and in Pembroke, Genesee County (the town just to the west of Alden). They had four children, Adelaide Mary 1853, Charles Edward 1856, Solomon C 1858, and Lida Omyra in 1861.
While working at the Wight or Wright Farm in Alden, Tracy met Truman Gillett, they became friends, and Truman boarded with the family.
In 1870 the family decided to move to Wisconsin. All of Prudence's family moved to Wisconsin, all her siblings and parents. Tracy and Prudence went by boat to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and from there by train to Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Truman Gillett went with them and married their daughter Adelaide in 1871.
While living in the Oshkosh area, the family adopted one son, Emile Richard Schroeder, whose mother had died in a house fire. Starting about 1875, after his wife Prudence had died, Solomon Gates Cottrell, father of Prudence, lived with them.
In 1879, Tracy's son Solomon took a homestead in Milltown, Shawano County in Wisconsin. The family moved to this area, where they lived the rest of their lives. The town of Milltown was transferred to Langlade County and renamed Rolling about 1880. Solomon Cottrell, the father of Prudence, stayed in the Oshkosh area and lived with his daughter Clarissa.
Tracy and Prudence's daughter Adelaide and her husband Truman Gillett moved with them to Langlade county and lived there the rest of their lives. They are buried in the same cemetery. They had six children.
Their son Charles married Josephine Ising in Oshkosh in 1879, they lived in Oshkosh and Weyauwega, Waupaca, Wisconsin, and later moved to Trinidad, Las Animas, Colorado by 1910. They had four children.

By 1910 Lida and family moved to the Rosebud Indian Reservation in Melette, South Dakota, and later moved to Fargo and Jamestown, North Dakota. They had nine children.
Their son Solomon lived them in Langlade county, and stayed close to the family.
