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. For the time period of this page, the only newspapers published were and the Rochester Telegraph and the Monroe Republican which replaced the Rochester Gazette. The Gazette seems to be published until Feb. or March 1821 and then suspended. It surfaced again as the Monroe Republican on March 13, 1821. Unfortunately, none of the early issues of the Monroe Republican exist. The Telegraph and the Gazette were filmed many years ago and are available at the Rochester Public Library and a few other places around the country. Note also that the film has been heavily scratched and some pages are out of focus so there are some illegible records.
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 Thursday."
You may wonder about birth records. Except for a few rare birth notices, birth records were not published until the mid twentieth century.

DIED - In New York, on the 30th March last, Jacob Sherred, Esq. aged 65 - a most worthy and respectable citizen. "It appears that he closed a life of usefulness and benevolence in a manner worthy of the brightness of its course. During the last winter, he subscribed and paid $1000 to the Protestant Episcopal Theological School in this state, and by his will he vests this institution with a large proportion of his fortune. After several private legacies, to the amount of about $50,000, and $5,000 to the Orphan asylum and $2,500 to St. Philip's (the African) Church, he bequeaths the residue of his property, which is conjectured to amount in all to about $125,000, to the Protestant Episcopal Theological School in the state of New York. The bequests made in such a way that no difficulty can possibly arise in the amount being speedily realized, and the institution will receive according to the above conjectural estimate about $70,000, and an additional legacy of $10,000, if not claimed in six years, by some of his collateral relations." - N.

Mr. Dunlap, who were the first settlers of that town. At the time of the Indian massacre in that place in Novemeber 1778. Mr. Mitchell was compelled to witness a scene, the recital of which excites all our sympathies. A party of savages burst into his house, and in almost barbarous and shocking manner murdered his wife and four children; and after setting fire in the house carried off his then only remaining child into Captivity.* He himself only escaped death or captivity by running up a ravine near his house, in which the bushes were so thick that he was enabled to elude his persuers. After the enemy withdrew from the place, he was compelled alone to put the bodies of his wife and children upon a sled, and to draw them a mile to the fort for interment. The next year, while at Cherry Valley to see his property, he was walking through the woods unarmed; an Indian with a drawn knife chased him a great distance, but he was enabled by his swift running to escape from him. He endured all these afflictions with christian fortitude and has through life preserved a fair and unblemished reputation. He had long been a professor of the christian religion and gave good evidence by his purity of life that his profession was sincere. As long as his health would permit him, he was always found on the Sabbath in the House of God. He now sleeps with his fathers, and let us al be in readiness to follow him.
