Engaged To Nathan Hale?


From Old Houses Of Antient [sic] Town Of Norwich [Connecticut]:

Uriah Tracy (b. 1753), was the son of Joseph and Anna (Hinckley) Tracy. He married in 1794, Lydia Hallam of New London, who was said to have been engaged to Capt. Nathan Hale, "the martyr spy." Uriah Tracy buys in 1790 the Benedict Arnold house, where he afterward resided, and died in 1832. For a short time, his son, George William Tracy, carried on the store in partnership with Edward Tracy. At the death of George William Tracy, which occurred in 1834, this line became extinct.
