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 these newspapers published in Rochester:

  1. Rochester Telegraph was published July 7, 1818 - Jan. 4, 1829. The Rare Books Department at the University of Rochester has scattered issues for the year 1827.
  2. Monroe Republican was published March 11, 1821 - July 31, 1827. Issues from 1827 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 Apr. 24, 1827 and July 24, 1827 to the end of the year. [Sometimes just called The Album].
  4. Rochester Daily Advertiser was published: Oct. 25, 1826 - Jan. 4, 1829. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm for Apr. 16 to Oct. 12, 1827.
  5. Rochester Observer was published: Jan. 6, 1827 - 1832. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm for the entire run.
  6. Rochester Mercury was published from about Jan. to July 1827. Scattered issues were found in the library of the Rochester Museum and Science Center.
  7. Monroe Republican & Rochester Mercury was published from about August 1827 to an unknown date. Scattered issues were found in the library of the Rochester Museum and Science Center.

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.

NEWS OF THE DAY

For the Rochester Daily Advertiser

Our much-respected fellow townsman, John Mastick—one of enterpising pioneers who saw the beginning and grew with the growth of our village—is no more. He arrived in 1813, when but three or four shanties occupied the tract now tenanted by a bustling population of nine or ten thousand; and has since then discharged the duties of a citizen, a lawyer and a magistrate, in a way that endeared him in life to all acquaintance, and procures for his memory the repect of his neighbours generally. Annexed is a notice of his death, from the pen of a gentleman who had the fullest opportunity to appreciate his character.

For the Rochester Daily Advertiser

Obituary — Died on Sunday evening, at his residence in this village, John Mastick, Esq., aged 47 years. — The deceased was native of Grafton, Vermont; and one of the early settlers of this village, where he persued the practice of the law for several years, and for a considerable portion of the time was also a Justice of the Peace. An aged mother is his nearest surviving relative. He has however left a numerous circle of acquantance, who will feel his loss and respect his memory. As a neighbour he was kind and hospitable; as a husband and friend, sincere, affectionate and constant; as a magistrate, he was upright and impartial. A decided friend to morals and good order, he was ever active and efficient in suppressing vice—a firm believer in the Christian religion, he experienced in his last trying hours its richest consulations and died in the triumph of faith. About four years since, he became a member of the Episcopal Church of thisvillage, and was one of its efficient officers. In his last illness he was patient and resigned. A few hours before his death, he said, " I have no fears—my faith holds out, and so will that of all those who put their confidence in Jesus Christ."

The Gentlemen of the Bar held a meeting on the 22d instant, and unanimously resolved to attend his funeral in a body, and still further evince their regard for the deceased by wearing crape on their arms for thirty days. The funeral exercises were performed in the Episcopal Church.

William Barnes, a Post-rider, who absconded on Saturday the 20th instant, considerably in debt to each of us. It is said he went off towards Kentucky; and if so, and he should offer himself in a similar capacity there, Printers will know how to deal with him.

Serious Accident. — A few evenings since a gentleman named Levings, from Ontario, Wayne co. came to this village, in company with his daughters. In the evening when passing the middle bridge, he fell into the river, in consequence of some plank being left up nearly in front of the Globe and Exchange buildings. He has not yet been found, having in all probability gone over the falls. Strangers should be careful to take lights with them, if they undertake to walk our streets need only to be cited to show the correctness of the above. Besides, the traders in the vicinity of the buildings erecting on the west side of Exchange street, have suffered a serious damage in their business, in consequence of the almost impassable state of the walks for six months past. — We can hardly see any good reason why some compensation should not be made them. Had only a common, or reasonable time been taken for the continuance of the obstruction we should have said nothing. We barely suggest these hints for the consideration of builders.

Fire—The paper mill of Everard Peck & Co. of this village, situate on the east side of the river, between the aqueduct and market bridge, was consumed by fire midday on the 21st inst.There were about 600 reams of paper and a large quantity of rags in the building at the time. It is thought that the fire originated in the bleaching room. Estimated loss about $5,000, of which one half was covered by insurance. A fatal accident occurred while the paper mill was burning. Thomas M. Rathbun, aged 25, a member of one of the fire companies, when engaged with others in extinguishing the flames, was crushed by the falling of a chimney. Thus have the solace and support of an aged mother and a widowed sister, with a train of orphans, been prematurely cut off. His funeral was attended on the 23d, by the several fire companies and a number of citizens.
