Marriages and Deaths from Rochester Newspapers
Jan. 1, 1825 - Dec. 31, 1826

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. For the time period of this page, there were four newspapers published in Rochester:

  1. Rochester Telegraph was published July 7, 1818 - Jan. 4, 1829. The Rochester Public Library has a microfilm that covers issues only to Sept. 6, 1825. The University of Rochester has most of the rest of 1825 and scattered issues through 1826. These are in an online database that is only available at U of R.
  2. Monroe Republican was published March 11, 1821 - July 31, 1827. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm covering Aug. 2, 1825 - Aug. 1, 1826. Other issues from 1825 and 1826 were found in bound volumes in the Rare Books Department at the University of Rochester.
  3. The Rochester Album was published Oct. 1825 - 1828. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm covering Nov. 10, 1825 - Oct. 31, 1826. [Sometimes just called The Album].
  4. Rochester Daily Advertiser was published: Oct. 25, 1826 - Jan. 4, 1829. There are no known existing issues of the newspaper from 1826.

Note that some of the films have 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.

Two abbreviations that appear frequently in these old records are; inst. and ult. Their meanings are inst. = instant, an old word meaning this month and ult. = ultimo meaning last month.

He recently left the army for a season, on account of declining health, and came to his friends in this state to enjoy the benefit of a more northern and healthy climate.

An appropriate sermon and address were delivered on the occasion; after which a procession was formed, preceded by a military escort, which rendered at the grave the honours usually paid to deceased officers. The proceedings were conducted with solemnity and propriety meant in a manner which relects much credit upon the officers and military who attended the funeral obsequies.—Com.

      At Chili, on the 8th inst. Mrs. Hephzibah Darwin, wife of Dr. Ephraim Darwin, in the 67th year of her age. Mrs D. has long been an exemplary professor of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She was possessed of amiable and Christian virtues, which were appreciated in the circle of her acquanitance. The feebleness of her health, and her unobtrusive disposition, prevented their being as generally known as they deserved. Her husband and children mourn the loss of a most tender and afectionate friend. She was never wearied with offices of kindness to her friends; but she is gone! she has done with the world; nobler employments engage her disembodied spirit. Her sickness was severe, and at times her reason was impared; but in her serene trust in her Redeemer–Death had, to her, no terrours. "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them." An expression she was heard to make during her sickness, and while engaged in devotion, "thou knowest that I have daily dedicated myself to thee." shows the nearness in which she lived to God, and one reason of her growth in grace; for daily self-dedication will inevitally be productive of soul prosperity.—Com.

"Here worth weeps a loss,

Died—In this village, on Thursday evening, after a short ilness Rev. Comfort Williams, in the 43d years of his age, The death of Mr. Williams was sudden, and truly to be lamented. He was the first minister, in the first Presbyterian Society of this place, where he laboured faithfully, and with ardour for a number of years. He was universally esteemed, as a good man, and had a circle of acquaintances and friends who were near him, and who knew how to appreciate his worth. But a few years since, he left this place, and the congregation, and has been since engaged in no place as a settled minister. Within a year he lost his wife, an amiable woman, and now he has followed her, leaving a family of 4 children. Death strikes often among us, and it is a melancholy thought, that he has thus removed, a valuable citizen, and an only parent. His remains were interred with masonic honors on Saturday...

OBITUARY

The Rev. Comfort Williams died suddenly, at his dwelling in this village, on the 26th inst. aged 43 years.
      The dispensation of Providence will be felt by the church, by the village, and by the whole religious community, as far as his acquaintance and influence extended. But to his four orphan children, dependant wholly on him for a parent's aid, the loss will be incalculable. May the God of the fatherless receive them under his paternal care.
      Mr. Williams was born in Wethersfield, Conn. He was piously educated, and the subject of religous impressions at an early age. In order to qualify him the more successfully to preach Christ and him crusified, as the Saviour of lost men, he desired and obtained a publick education. He graduated at Yale College, in 1803. While a student, he was enabled by the strength of his mind and his diligent application, to make distinguished proficiency in the various branches of acedemic learning; and by his amiable and correct deportment, he recommended himself to the esteem of his instructors and all who were conversant with him.
      He was installed in the ministry at this village, at its early settlement; and by his exemplary life and faithful instructions, contributed much to form the morals of the community, and lay the foundation of religious society. He patiently submitted to the trials and difficulties incident to his situation; and by a prudent coarse conciliated the good will of even opposers to his religion. He officiated as here for several years. He then resumed the important office of instructing youth, in which he had before been successfully employed, and continued the faithful and affectionate instructor until the week of his death.
      As a preacher, he deeply felt and faithfully preached the doctrines of grace, and applied them in a manner adapted to amend the heart and reform the life. He judiciously distinguished between the essentials and circumstances of religion. With a modest independence of sentiments in the former, he happily combined an amiable candour towards those who differed. He loved good men, whatever names they might bear. His life was short, but useful; and he now rest from his labours and his works will follow him.
      A numerous collection of his friends, his brethren in the ministry, and his masonick brethren attended his funeral, and by their deep sorrow bore testimony to their sense of his worth.

MARRIED—In Penfield, on the 26th inst. by Gersham Dunham, Esq., Mr. Nathan Scribner to Miss Sally Morey, all of that place; on the 8th inst. by the same, Mr. Stephen Morey to Miss Rebecca Brown.

But she was then in a confirmed consumption; nor could the skill of an able physician, nor the kindness and affection of her husband's benevolent parents and relatives arrest the rapid approaches of death. Mrs. Farrar was a woman of real merit, and gave good evidence of true piety. She met death with resignation. Her husband arrived from Detroit, a few days before her death. – She could most cheerfully leave her much beloved and respected husband and dear children in the hands of her God and Saviour. Her bereaved family, the Church of Christ, and the society in which she lived, have sustained a great loss. By her faith, and hope, and patience, she has left a good example to her surviving friends.

He has ever since we knew him lived "as a good man and a christian," and if human minds are allowed to calculate on joys hereafter, he no doubt has exchanged this moral state for immediately, and gone to meet that reward which is laid up in Heaven for the righteous.

Farewell—no costly urn shall mark thy lasting sleep.
Nor sculptur'd marble point thy early tomb.
Thy youthful friends will o'er thy green turf weep.
When mem'ry leads them to thy body's home.

DIED.—In the stage, while passing from Avon Springs to this place, wither he had been for his health, Mr. Ormond Spalding, one of the editors of the Album, aged 24 years.
      Mr. Spalding had been afflicted for several years with a scrofulous complaint, but which he supposed he had entirely recovered from. He was an apprentice in this office for some time, during which he often showed symptoms of a lingering complaint, and appeared upon a slow decline till in July or August 1825 when he went to New York, and seemed revived by travelling. He commenced business, in this village but never has been able to attend to it at all. He has gone down gradually, till at last, the "mortal foe," has "smote him quite asunder." He was a young man of much personal worth, and virtue, and leaves an afflicted and youthful wife, and a train of friends to lament his premature exit.

"Here worth weeps a loss,
And Friendship drops a tear."

  

4 July 1826
The Rochester Album

Departed this life on the 27th ultimo, after a lingering illness of rising six months, Ormond SPALDING, the junior editor and proprietor of this paper, aged 24 years, four months and 26 days. In the death of this promising individual, society has suffered a loss, of which none can be so sensible as those most intimately acquainted with him. He endured his illness with much patience, and whenever he had occasion to speak of the change that ere long, would probably be his lot, he manufactured as much composure, as though he were about to perform a journey.
      As a husband, he was kind and affectionate, as a friend, constant and faithful.
      He was an acute discerner of the motives of those with whom he had, at any time to associate, yet he was far from being possessed of a suspicious disposition. The bigot's vindictive spirit was unable to affect determinations predicated upon the convictions of his own breast - Independence of thought, word, and action, was a quality, of which he possessed more than an ordinary share; yet his charity did not allow him to indulge in rancour toward such as did not think it best to agree with him in opinion. Finally, it must be acknowledged that he possessed as unblemished a character as will be generally found. Peace be to his manes.

DIED

In Lyons, on the 16th inst. Hiram T. Day, late editor and publisher of the Lyons Advertiser, aged exactly thirty years.
