Rachel Rosanna Tracy married Lewis Perington Weeks in 1884 in York, Nebraska. Lewis was born July 7, 1851 in New York (probably Athens, Greene County, NY) to Lewis and Clarissa Chesebrough Weeks. They lived in Athens in the Catskills for the 1860 and 1870 census. Lewis was the second son and his father was a farmer. My 1880 Lewis is living as a boarder and farmer in York, Nebraska. I don’t find any relatives living in York so I can only assume the availability of good farm land is what drew Lewis to the area.
Rachel and Lewis did not have any children of their own but they did adopt a girl, Katie (Hattie?) who lived with them as an adopted daughter in the 1900 census but not before and not after. She was born in 1883.
Not much else is known about the Weeks family by me. But I did find among Alice’s sources a copy of a telegram sent to the Tracy family on the day of Lewis’ death on July 4, 1902.
