Mackay Family Genealogy Forum
I am seeking information on a Susan MacKay born in New York or Virginia, birth possibly 1802 to 1820. I have found different ages on different census records. I am assuming that at one time she may not have told the truth of her age. Our family story states that Susan ran away from her family at the age of 16 because she was "with child" and her family disowned her. She later took the name Trackler. She is listed in the 1850 Illinois census as living with an Oliver Trackler. There also is a son listed as George Trackler who was born in Ohio and is 13 years old and a son, William, who is two. This woman has been a mystery in our family for years. I find records of her being married four times. (I am assuming that it is her, as Susan Trackler is not a common name.) Any help is appreciated.
