Marriages and Deaths from Rochester Newspapers
July 7, 1818 - Dec. 31, 1820

line

Vital records in New York State weren't recorded by the state until 1880. For early vital records you have to either find church records or hope that the event is recorded in the newspaper. The earliest newspaper published in Monroe County is the Rochester Gazette which was first published in June 1816. The earliest issues of that newspaper no long exist. In fact very issues of the Gazette exist. The earliest existing newspaper is volume 1, number 1 of the Rochester Telegraph, dated July 7, 1818. The Gazette and the Telegraph were the only newspapers published in Rochester for the time included on this page. Both newspapers were published weekly on Tuesday.

You will see some differences in spelling of names between the two newspapers. Also, they may not have published the same records. It probably depended on which newspaper a family may have read. These newspapers were filmed many years ago and are available at the Rochester Public Library and a few other places around the country.

The records on this page are extracted as published in the newspaper. Small monthly calendars are included to help when a newspaper record states that an event happened "last week Wednesday."

You may wonder about birth records. Except for a few rare birth notices, birth records were not published until the mid twentieth century.

Henry Steinhaur, the much esteemed inspector of the establishment for female education at that place. He bore his extreme sufferings with exemplary resignation and fortitude, enjoying thereby in an eminent degree, those sweetest of consolations, which are peculiar to the Christian.
     In Geneva, on the 15th inst. Miss Amelia Chapin, daughter of Col. Cyrenias Chapin, in the 18th year of her age.
     Seldom has it fallen to our lot to record an instance of mortality which has excited so much feeling as the death of this young lady. Possessed of a mild and amiable disposition; a benevolent and affectionate heart she was beloved by her friends and esteemed by her acquaintance. Her deportment from her earliest youth exhibited an inclination to seriousness; a love of virtue and morality, and a peculiar attachment to divine institutions. Through a long and distressing sickness she was an eminent example of humility, patience and resignation. The exercise of the severest pain was never known to utter a murmur; nor that fond attachment to worldly scenes, so peculiar to youth, a complaint. Her mind was unclouded to the last, and evinced a calmness and composure which is derived alone from the religion of the Saviour, and which enabled her to bid a cheerful adieu to earthly objects, and to triumph over death and the terrors of the grave. To her fond parents and affectionate sisters, the loss is irreparable; yet the consolation, that their loss is the eternal gain of their departed friend, must be a balm to their wounded spirits, and enable them to say. "The Lord hath given and the Lord hath taken away: blessed be the name of the Lord."

The circumstances of his death we understand were these: The company to which he was attached had been ordered out for regimental review and inspection at China. Very early in the morning according to a ridiculous practice in the country, he with others met at the house of an officer, for the purpose of paying him a salute before the company paraded. After performing this ceremony and partaking very liberally of the bounty which the officer had provided, Mason, and another young man by the name of Rollins, began to play with their muskets - when the latter, forgetting that his piece was loaded, undertook to frighten his companion by snapping it at him. The piece being directed at the abdomen of Mr. M. literally blew out his intestines. After lingering about half an hour, he perspired. Let the fate of this unfortunate young man operate as a caution to others not to continue a practice liable to many evil consequences w ithout the possibility of producing any good.

DIED
From the St. Andrews Gazette.

     At St. Andrews, in the province of New Brunswick, on the 26th ult. in the 82d year of his age, the Rev. Samuel Andrews, (father of Samuel I. Andrews of this village,) a venerable Missionary to this Province, from the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, and Rector of St. Andrews. This pious and amiable character has retired from the world full of years, and full of the admiration and esteem of all who knew him - to his family and his friends, an irreparable loss - and while memory holds its seat, the recollection of his virtues and of his Parishioners. He was interred on Tuesday the 29th ult. after a Sermon preached upon the occasion and his funeral was attended by the whole parish, the Military, and a most respectable Body of the Clergy and gentry from the neighborhood and the American shores; amidst the tears and griefs of a grateful people.
     At Aurelius, Cayuga Co. on the 8th ult. Miss Sarah Penfield, aged 19 daughter of Mr. William H. Penfield of Brighton, Ont. Co.
     We received, too late for insertion, a lengthy communication on the dath of Miss P. We have only room to give a brief extract from it.
     Miss P. was at an early age called to preside at the head of her father's family, on account of the ill health of her mother, who was confined by sickness for more than three years, during which time she preformed the duties of a tender and affectionate daughter. To the sick and afflicted, she was always a friend - and her premature death is deeply lamented by all who knew her. By this stroke of Divine Providence, a father and his family are deprived of an affectionate daughter and siste r, but they mourn not as those who are without hope. Her spirit has fled, they fondly believe, to that haven of rest "where sorrow never enters."

     Departed this life, of a lingering consumption on Tuesday the 4th inst., Mrs. Mary Jane Badger, in the 23d year of her age, wife of Elder Joseph Badger, of Mendon, Ontario county. Mrs. B. was a native of Farmington, N. H., and third daughter of the late Col. Anthony Peavy, of that town. At the age of 13 she made a profession of the Christian religion, among a people known by the name of Christians. Her pious walk and modest deportment, while but a youth, entitled her to the highest esteem of all know knew her. At the age of 18 she became united in marriage with Elder Badger, and in one year afterwards removed with him to Pittsford, in Ontario county; and in the following year to Mendon, where she finished her mortal course.
     In Mrs. B. her husband has lost an amiable and affectionate consort, society a choice friend, and religious a pious ornament. Her characteristic worth rendered her an object of esteem, through the circle of her numerous friends and acquaintance in this western country, who, while they remember her virtues, revere her memory, and mourn her early departure of life. During her illness, she manifested a perfect resignation to the will of God, and departed in the triumphs of faith. On the day following her decease, her funeral was attended by a numerous and respectable concourse. An appropriate and affecting discourse was delivered on the occasion, by Elder David Millard, from Philippians 1. 21. "To die is gain;" after which her remains were conveyed to a grave-yard, and decently interred. She will long be remembered while piety shall be revered, and virtue remain lovely. "The righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance."      [Communicated.]

Previous to his death he informed his friends that an angel had appeared to him and told him that he must drink, and continue to drink, so as to remain beastly drunk, for nine days and nights, without eating, and if he survived that length of time, that he should finally be saved. He accordingly furnished himself with a barrel of whiskey, of which he partook more than a gallon per day, for the limited number of days, and then expired, being too weak and debilitated to take any nourishment. He had been in the habit of drinking to excess for a number of years. He has left a wife and a number of small children, fortunately in good circumstances. Ev. Post
     In Weston, Conn. 19th instant, Mr. Bradley Treadwell after an illness of 5 days, aged 3_ years; who manifested great composure and resignation to the will of heaven. The circumstances of his death were truly extraordinary. On the morning of the 19th he gave the parting hand to all present. When all supposed he was dead the neighbors were sent for to lay him out. About 4 hours after the suspension of life, when they were just about to proceed to lay him out, h e was observed to have a small motion to his breast, which surprised the by-standers, and soon increased signs of life began to appear when one present spoke to him, whom he attempted to answer, by making a faint inarticulate noise, which again terribly surprised them, he then suddenly, as from a sleep arose in his bed, and sat up. The first words he uttered were, "I have seen glorious things since I have been gone;" [which was about 4 hours] "It appears to me I have been gone 4 or 5 days. I have seen the New Jerusalem, with all its habitable beauties and heard the sweet music of the angels. I have seen and drunk the waters of life, which have cured me. My conductor told me I must return for a small space and tell my friends and neighbors to prepare to meet me it that happy place." He continued to comfort & exhort all present, the remainder of his time with great earnestness which was about 5 or 5 hours. He also said "I saw and heard the weeping of my friends from beyond the mount ains and heard its echo and re-echo; and was told by my conductor to tell them not to mourn for me but for themselves." He continued in this state till he expired, and sweetly fell asleep in Jesus.
     The above and foregoing was communicated to the subscriber by a person who was present at the time and whose veracity may be relied on, with many other unexceptionable witnesses.

Died,

     Died at the Bay of St. Louis, near New Orleans, on the 11th ult., Mrs. L. Ripley, consort of Gen. E. W. Ripley, of the U. S. army, and daughter of the late Rev. Mr. Allen of Pittsfield, Mass. Mrs. R. was not more distinguished for her personal accomplishments, than for her amiable and benevolent disposition, her intrepidity of character in the discharge of duty, and her ardent attachment and devotion to her friends. Several anecdotes are in the possession of the writer, whose melancholy task it is to pay this last humble tribute to her memory, which shoe that her generous virtues, her fortitude and conjugal affection led to actions that are uncommon to her sex, and border on the heroic. When the intelligence reached her at Pittsfield, that her husband, Gen. Ripley, had been dangerously wounded in the Sortie from Fort Erie, on the 17th Sept. 1814, she immediately sat out alone in the stage; as being the most rapid mode of conveyance, and traveled at th e rate of a hundred miles a day, till she arrived at the encampment of our army on the Niagara, a distance of about 400 miles from her residence. Here she remained amidst the bustle of a camp, and by the couch of her husband, till he unexpectedly recovered from his wound. Soon after her removal to New Orleans, her brother Dr. Allen, a surgeon in the army, sickened of the yellow fever and died. During his sickness, at the imminent hazard of her life, while the pestilence was raging around her, she was constantly at his bedside, administering to his wants, solacing his afflictions, and smoothing the pillow of death. Such was the character of Mrs. Ripley, whose premature death will be long deplored and whose memory will be fondly cherished by a numerous circle of friends.

[From the St. Louis Enquirer, Sept. 30]
     DIED - On Tuesday 26th inst. at Charretta village, in the 90th year of his age, the celebrated Col. Daniel Boone, discoverer and first settler of Kentucky.
     His death was communicated to the general assembly on Thursday 28th inst. by Mr. Emmons, a senator from St. Charles county, and both branches of the legislature, through respect to his memory, adjourned for the day, and passed a resolution to wear crape on the left arm for twenty days.
     Col. Boone emigrated to upper Louisiana, and settled on the Missouri river, about 50 miles above St. Louis, before the purchase of the country, and received from the Spanish government a donation of 2000 arpens of land. The American congress confirmed that grant to him; that is to say, they did not undertake to deprive him of what he had received from a foreign government. This is the only favor which the discoverer of Kentucky, and the founder of that state, has received from his country.
     The family of Col. Boone also emigrated to Missouri, and enjoy a respect worthy of the name of their father. On of his sons, Major Nathan Boone, was a member of the late Missouri convention; another, Jesse B. Boone, Esq. is a member of the present general assembly.
     Until two years past Col. Boone has enjoyed much health, and was capable of great bodily activity. Since then the approach of death was visible, and he viewed it with the indifference of a Roman philosopher.
