Obituary -- (Findagrave.com):

HORRIBLE ACCIDENT

Capt. B. A. Tracy Caught in an Elevator at Gay’s Warehouse and His Neck Broken.

A Good Citizen Gone.

The uncertainty of human life was once more exemplified by the terrible accident by which Capt. Buford Allen Tracy lost his life yesterday afternoon. He was at the warehouse of David S. Gay, and was conversing with some one in the basement of the building. Having finished his work there he called to some one to carry the elevator to the ground floor. John Wickline was there with a load of tobacco for M. H. Gardner and seized hold of the rope which controls the elevator. Not being familiar with the working of the machine, he failed to stop it when it reached the desired point and it continued to ascend. It is supposed that Capt. Tracy attempted to jump from the elevator platform to the floor, after he found it would not stop. He had waited too long however his head came in contact with the beams of the floor above, breaking his neck. Death was instantaneous and he suffered no pain. The news spread rapidly and a large crowd was soon present, the efforts of the police being necessary to clear the building so that the undertakers could take charge of the body.

He was liked by everybody. Bluff and cheery, his presence dispelled low spirits and he toward was a better for his having lived in it, he was a man of strong convictions and never hesitated to express them.

When the tocsin of war sounded, he responded early in the action, and did his part well. He left with the rank of Captain. He was for some time on the staff of Col. W. C. P. Breckenridge.

He never held civil office, but was prominently mentioned for Railroad Commissioner under the present administration and was a candidate for that place at the time of his death. He took a prominent part in the organization of Confederate Veterans; he was Vice President of Clark County Confederate Veteran Association and Adjutant of Roger Hanson Camp of Confederate Veterans. He was a prominent member of Goshen Baptist church and had been for years.

He leaves a wife, formerly Miss Holloway, and the following children; Mrs. Mayme Scobee, Buford, Starling, Mattie, Lizzie, Will, Stuart and Jeannette.

He had ten thousand dollars insurance on his life.
