Marriages and Deaths from Rochester Newspapers
Jan. 1, 1821 - Dec. 31, 1822

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 a t 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.

Rochester Telegraph

Died,
     At the Onondaga Castle, in this town, Mixton, one of the Chiefs of the Onondaga tribe of Indians, age 53. It may be said of Mixton that he was scarcely inferior to the celebrated Schenandoa in strength of mind and as possessing those qualities which adorn the human heart. He was for more than 30 years been a warm and decided friend to the white people. In the late war he took an active part, particularly at the battle of Chippewa. For a number of years he has had the perfec t confidence of the white people, indeed so great was the reliance placed in his integrity that he has frequently had credit of our merchants to the amount of upwards of 1,200 dollars. Within the last years he had been in the habit of becoming responsible for most of the tribe to obtain their clothing and such articles as they needed to make them comfortable during the inclement season, and of paying when their money should be received from the State in June. In this way his accounts at a single store have been from 800 to 1,200 dollars. He kept all his accounts with the several individuals of the tribe by marks, and such was his accuracy, that he seldom was detected in an error. His death will be a great loss to the tribe, and sincerely regretted by his white friends. - Onondaga Reg.

Died,
     In New York, the Rev. Solomon Allen, aged 69. This useful and benevolent divine now rests from his labors, that his works follow him. For a long time he was a faithful and zealous minister of Christ. Of late his labors were principally confined to the town of Brighton. He mingled with Christianity the most extensive philanthropy. He ever let go his own interest to subserve the interests of the people among whom he was at any time called to preach. It was his peculiar delight to tr ain up the rising generation in the paths of knowledge and virtue. He often visited the schools and animated and encouraged the pupils in their several duties. He contributed much to furnish needy and destitute children with books and clothes. Whenever he went, the poor hailed him as their benefactor and friend. Many have been gifted with more splendid talents and have possessed greater attainments - but rarely have talents been better improved - and rarely has an individual made greater and more disinterea ted exertions for the welfare and happiness of mankind.

     Capt. S. Currier, whose marriage was noticed in our paper of last week, requests us to state, that the report of his marriage was entirely unfounded, and circulated by some evil minded person with a view to injure with.

Died,
     At Hartford, Con., Capt. Charles Miller a revolutionary officer, and pensioner, aged 79. Capt. Miller was a Scotchman by birth, and at an early age was impressed into the British service, from which he made his escape, and came to this town in the year 1772. At the commencement of hostilities between this country and England he joined the revolutionary army where he remained till the close of the war. Perhaps there was not a more daring and determined officer in the service , not even excepting Putnam than Miller. He was in the battle of Bunker Hill and distinguished himself in such a manner as to secure the confidence of his men, and the admiration of all who witnessed his daring intrepidity. He was in numerous engagements afterwards, and was often selected to perform the most difficult and dangerous enterprises. He led the foreign hope at the taking of Stoney Point and was the first man who entered the fort, being at his own request thrown over the ramparts by his com panions with the muzzles of their musket. He often received the marked attention of Washington; to the soldier of the revolution the mention of this fact will be thought a sufficient eulogy and a most convincing proof of merits both as a soldier and patriot.

     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 amou nt 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. Y. paper.
     At Bloomfield, Ontario county, on the 29th ult., Mrs. Mary Smith, wife of Reuben C. Smith, aged 45. The circumstances attending her death were truly distressing.

OBITUARY
     The Hon. Henry Jansen, Esq. a delegate from the county of Ulster, died very suddenly in this city, on Thursday last. Sudden deaths always impress us with awe: there is something in this instantaneous change from health, life, and activity to the silence and insensibility of death, that the mind cannot dwell upon without a feeling of instinctive horror. But in the case of Mr. Jansen there were concurring circumstances which rendered it peculiarly and awful solemn. He had dur ing that day attended in the convention, in the possession of his usual health. After dinner he walked to the Capitol accompanied by a number of ladies and gentlemen, with an intention of viewing Peale's Court of Death then exhibiting in the Senate chambers. He had purchased a ticket for admission, which he had in his hand and was just to enter the door, when he fell down and in a few minutes was a lifeless corpse. The necessary association of ideas hereby forced upon the mind, makes it perhaps one of the m ost truly solemn acts of Providence that has ever occurred. A mortal, but accountable being, on his way to view a fancied representation of the "Court of Death," and having arrived at the very threshold of the door which was to open it to his sight, is sanity arrested in his progress and forthwith summoned to the dread tribunal of all living. - Albany Argus

She bore her lingering illness with all the fortitude and patience of a Christian, The Rev. O. Miller visited her a number of times immediately receding her death, and found her in the most calm resignation to her God, resulting from a consciousness of her acceptance in the beloved. Death had lost its terror, and she had gained a complete victory over it in the blood of the Lam b. She looked upon her coming dissolution, and conversed about it, with all the serenity of a soul going to sleep exclaiming "I am happy; I am happy. I had no idea that a dying bed could seem so sweet." She retained her senses most of the time until her last moments when she breathed her soul into the hands of her God; and left a bosom friend, a child and numerous circle of friends and acquaintance to mourn her loss. Behold how a Christian dies. "Let me die the death of righteous, and let my last end be like this."      [Com.]

In announcing the death of this venerable hero, and patriot, the writer has to lament the loss of a valued friend - one who fought and bled for his country's good, and not that he might share her spoil or enjoy her bounty - one who in the early settlement of the country shared all the perils and ills common to others, and was ever foremost to brave dang er and death. Col. Harden was not only a hero, he was more - he was a philanthropist. At the return of peace he emancipated his slaves, and divided his pay with those who had shared with him the perils of war. He fought and frequently commanded against the Indians, and was several times severely wounded.
     Having emancipated his salves and bestowed a considerable portion of his lands, he found himself in the evening of his days compelled to support himself and family by manual labor, and Cincinnatus like, cultivated with his own hands his little farm.      Kentucky Argus.

     DIED - At Cherry Valley, on the 8th ult. Mr. Hugh Mitchell, aged on hundred and one years and nine months. The deceased was a native of Carrickfergus, in Ireland and emigrated to this country about the year 1764 with the little Irish colony who came out with the Rev. 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 a ll 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 sle d, 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 profes sion 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.
     * This child was recovered from captivity and survives him, as does his second wife and several children of the second marriage.

But trembling hope that some morrow,
Will find us with her, and the blessed."
