The 9 games listed for John F Phenominal Smith with Bal UA in 1884 was probably for Ed Smith. Ed Smith was signed by Baltimore UA before the season so it is likely that it was he who pitched the 9 games.

He pitched for Columbus, Ga of the Southern Lg in 1885. He is the only Ed Smith I know of and also a pitcher active in 1884 so it is likely him

Treacy, Fred 1871

No one knows what his actual name was or how it was spelled. He played for Brooklyn teams from at least 1866 to 1869, so the 1847 birth sounds reasonable. But never appeared in Brooklyn CDs under any of the variations, Treacey, Treacy, Tracy, Tracey. From Brooklyn Daily Times "Fred Tracey, left fielder of the Franklins of Brooklyn part of 1867, joined the Excelsiors 1868, Mohawks 2B and CF until August when he and Billy Lennon (teammate on the Franklins in 1866) left for Chicago, where Fred was placed in LF. Last season he came home and played the same position on the Eckfords. Joined the Atlantics 1870, but the inducements were too tempting and he took a Western course". In the 1871 Chicago Tribune he was called Frederick S Treacey. In the Chicago City Directory he was Fred H Treacy ball player. He was Treacey in the boxscores with NY Mutuals 1876. In 1895 Sporting life, there was a note that Fred Tracy, the Old Philadelphia Athletic was rumoured to be living in San Francisco. Not in the CDs under an variation of that name. In NY Clipper, 1894 and 1897, he was said to be still living. In 1904 Washington Post Article (from Peter Morris) Ned Cuthbert was talking about his old teams and mentioned Fred Tracy (now dead).

Treacy, Peter J 1876

No evidence that he was a brother of Fred Treacy. Early 1876 was with Arlington club of NY as P Tracy, with another Tracy in the lineup. In 1877 he was with Brooklyn Chelseas as P J Tracy. Only P Treacy in NY 1900 census was Peter J Treacy B Nov 1850 NY 1900 W 128th St, NY. He played in NYC into the late 1870s.

Arthur S Twineham

He was living in Detroit in the 1896 to 1899 era. He joined the Elks there. I think he was married at the time.
