Marriages and Deaths from Rochester Newspapers

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 / Rochester Daily Telegraph was published July 7, 1818 - Jan. 4, 1829. It was originally a weekly newspaper and in April 1827 became a daily newspaper. The Rochester Public Library has a microfilm covering June 26, 1828 - Nov. 26, 1828 but there are many missing issues on that microfilm..
  2. The Rochester Album was published Oct. 1825 - 1828. Rochester Public Library has July 24, 1827 to July 22, 1828. Those same issues are on the Fulton History website. [Sometimes just called The Album].
  3. Rochester Daily Advertiser was published from Oct. 25, 1826 - Jan. 4, 1829. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm for June 18, 1828 to Jan. 4, 1829. The Fulton History website has Oct. 1, 1828 to Jan. 3, 1829.
  4. Rochester Observer was published from Jan. 6, 1828 - 1832. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm for the entire run.
  5. Rochester Balance was published from from 1827 to Jan. 28, 1828. There are no known existing issues.
  6. Anti-Masonic Enquirer was published from Feb. 12, 1828 to Feb. 1834. The Rochester Public Library has 5 existing paper issues from 1828 that they scanned and have on this web page.

Note that some of the films have been 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.

The obituary notice of the death of Mrs. Cuming, which appeared in the papers of this village, we did not see until it was too late for our last week's Observer.–The following is from the Gospel Messenger of the 6th inst.

Died, at Rochester, on the morning of Dec. 26, in the 27th year of her age, Mrs. Caroline A. Cumming, wife of Rev. F. H. Cuming, Rector of St. Luke's Church in that village, and daughter of Hon. J. W. Hulbert, of this place, leaving an infant, a few hours old, to meet the storms of the world without the protection of a mother's care, and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn the loss of one of whose worth will be long remembered. In this lamented woman there was an acknowledged union of those qualities of mind and heart whichn ever fail to make the individual in whom they are combined an object of admiration and love.—She possessed a native purity and sweetness of temper enriched by mental cultivation, and adorned by the chasms of an engaging manner.—The force of her mind and sprightliness of her imaginiation gave a lustre and animation to social intercourse; but the richness ornament of her character was seen in her unostentatious piety, and in that christian example of meekness and love which as far as mortals can judge flowed of divine grace upon the heart. The manner in which she discharged the various domestic relations, and met the calls of friendship, attracted the admiration of all who knew her.
    That this testimony to the character of this lovely woman is just, was proved by the interest awakened in the place of her dwelling. Never perhaps, on a similar occasion, was there a deeper expression of sympathy. A generous congregation, while they evidently felt the loss as severe, seemed to leave no effort unattempted to prove that they wished to soothe their bereaved Rector and faithfull Pastos. Though the day of the funeral was stormy and the walking very difficult, the Church, which is large was croded, and throughout the service and the sermon there was a stillness and intensenness of attemtion which proved the presence of deep feeling. May the devout emotions of that holy spririt which we humbly trust qualified our friend for the enjoyment of the celestil temple, soothe the aching bosoms of afflicted relatives, and sanctify this mournful visitation to al who knew her.

DEATH OF A SABBATH SCHOOL SCHOLAR
    William Gordon, aged 12 years, had resided in this village during the last 5 years, and been during the whole time a constant and attentive member of the Sabbath School connected with the First Presbyterian Church. He attended school as usual Sabbath before last, and had his lesson committed for the last Sabbath, but instead of reciting it to his earthly Teacher, we trust he was employed in singing the song of redeeming love in heaven which was the essence of doctrine contained in his last lesson.
     On Friday preceeding, being employed in the Cotton Factory, he was he was caught by the machinery and carried with it until his arm was several times broken and nearly drawn from his body, and was otherwise dreadfully mangled. After suffering excruciating pain until early next morning, his willing spirit took its leave of its poor mangled tenement. In his last moments he was in the full possession of his reason, and plainly stated his belief in the sufficientcy of Christ's atoning blood for his salvation; and although able to say but little, appeared conscious of the necessity and importance of prayer, of which it was ascertained he had been in the daily habit for a considerable time. Reader, are your sympathies excited? Weep rather for yourselves than for this child, or that exemplary mother who has repeatedly met similar bereavements in a manner which bespeaks her confidence in the wisdom and goodness of her heavenly Father.
    Sabbath School Scholar, do you always reflect when going from school that before another Sabbath you may be in eternity!—[Communicated.]

On the death of Mr. John S. Shepard, printer, Mr. Bogart, in his Gazette of the 5th inst.
    About eighteen months ago the disease which marked him as its victim, began distinctly to manifest itself; since which period his frame has gradually wasted away until, without a struggle or a groan, he sweetly fell asleep in Jesus. It may perhaps with truth be said, that seldom has the tomb closed upon more real worth in one so young. A residence of near seven years in our family afforded ample means of witnessing the development of those inestimaable qualities of the heart for which the deceased was so strongly endeared him to us. Possessed of a bright intellect, he improved every opportunity to acquire that kind of knowledge best calulated to render himself useful; and his amiable disposition and conciliating deportment attached to him a large circle of friends of all ages, who, while they cherish his memory, will sincerely unite with his afflicted relatives in deeply lamenting their bereavement.
    But it was in his character as a Christian that he eminently shone. At an early age he exhibited a commendable regard for serious subjects and religious institutions; and with the advance of years, his thirst for "a spiritual saving knowledge" increased. As a teacher in the Sabbath School, and in many other respects his usefulness and his example were acknowledged and felt. About three years ago he became a member of the Presbyterian church in this village, and to the exemplar life heretofore led by him was added the benign influence of religion. No exercise was so delightful to his heart as prayer and searching the Scriptures, which holy volume he prized above rubies.
    His piety was genuine and that ardent kind which seeks to glorify God and promote the highest good of mankind. Meek, sincere, and broken hearted, he felt his ill desert as a sinner, and drew all his hopes for etenity from the Gospel. In his efforts to be useful to others he was remarkably unobtrusive, and yet such was his unostentatious diligence that he "let his light so shine before men that they, seeing his good works, were constrained to glorify his Father in Heaven."

    In Hatfield, Mass., Rev. Joseph Lyman, D.D. father of Mrs. E. Johns, of Canandaigua, in the 79th year of his age.
    In Albany, on Sabbath evening, March 30, in the 52d year of his age, at his lodgings at Bement's Recess, the Hon. Dugald Cameron, member of assembly from the county of Steuben.
    The event was announced to the house on Monday, in an appropriate manner, by Mr. Woods, the colleague of the deceased, and adverted to by the Speaker, when, on motion of Mr. Monell, a committee of five members, consisting of Mess. Woods, Fitch, Monell, Lynde and Savage, was appointed to make the necessary arrangements for the funeral. Both houses resolved to wear crape on the left arm for thirty days, and to attend the funeral in a body. The house then immediately adjourned. We understand that the remains of Mr. Cameron will be conveyed to the place of his late residence, Bath, Steuben county, for interment.
    Mr. Cameron has been ill during all the past year, having suffered much, and at last sunk under the painful attacks of an internal acscess. His death is a public loss. In the county of which he was a representative, he enjoyed, in the largest possible sense, the esteem and confidence of his fellow citizens. He was looked up to as a benefactor—liberal, public spirited and honorable. His worth and usefulness are associated with the prosperity of the county in which he has long resided, and the interest of which he has efficiently promoted. There, his death will be mourned by the whole community as a public calamity. To his amiable family, who have been with him in this city during the last stage of his illness, the deprivation is irreparable. — Albany Argus.

Very suddenly, at his residence in Pittsford, on Thursday the 26th ult. our much esteemed and worthy fellow citizen, Simon Stone, Esq., Clerk of the county of Monroe. He has for many years been afflicted with disury and at length Ischuira, inflamation and mortification followed which terminated his existence.

He was a member of the Presbyterian church of Pittsford. As a christian he did honour to the religion which he professes, was enlightened in his views, liberal in his charities, and consistent in his deportment; he was an amiable husband, and affectionate parent, and kind relative.—Communicated.

Shocking Accident.—It is to be regretted that the 4th of July should so frequently bring with it a long chapter of accidents; and which may generally be attributed to the intemperate use of ardent spirits. He have already heard of several unfortunate occurances which happened on that day, but the saddest among them all was at China, Genesee county, the particulars of which we have received in a letter from a friend in that place as follows:
    "At a celebration of our national anniversity in this town, on the 4th inst. Jehial Kibbee was instantly killed by the discharge of a cannon. The wad entered his left breast and come out at the right side, carrying away both arms, and mangling the vitals in the most frightful manner. The utmost care had been taken by the committee of arrangements to prevent ill effects from too free a use of distilled spirits, as their entertainment was ordered without any. The gun was in the care of a prudent man, who had given all proper warning, so that no blame can attach to any person living. The deceased had been dismissed from his station at the gun on account of intoxication. John Harriet and Harry Jackson, were also injured by the same discharge—the former having the flesh of his fore arm severly torn, and the bone broken; the latter was slightly burnt on the face. Both perceiving the immenent danger of Kibbee, had started forward to rescue him." — Livingston Register.

The body of Mr. Ira B. Bates was found dead in the village of Clarkson, Monroe County, on Wednesday the 30th ultimo. The circumstances relative to his death are somewhat singular. He arose as usual on Saturday morning the 26th, and on being informed that his breakfast was ready, replied that he felt very ill, and left the house very hastily. He was last seen near the place where he was found. Inquiry and search were made, but no intelligence was received of him till the afternoon of the 30th, when his body was discovered in an unoccupied building, not far distant from his boarding house in a putried state, whither he had repaired, unnoticed. He unlocked the door, and after entering locked it again and put the key in his pocket. He then. it appears, pulled off his coat, folded it up and laid it upon the floor to serve him as a pillow. His hat stood near with his cravat lying across it. He was found lying on his back on the floor with his coat under his head and his pocket handkerchief by his side. He died apparently without a struggle. Mr. Bates was a young man of good character and steady habits, and much respected by all who knew him. He was reading law in the office of Wm. Groves, Esq. No cause can be conjectured of his unnatural death. A Jury of inquest was held over his body, whose verdict was, that he came to his death by the visitation of God. — Brockport Recorder.

A disposition naturally amiable, and improved by the purifying influence of religion, had endeared her to a large circle of friends and renders her loss to her family and society irreparable. On the day of her death she was permitted to enjoy what she had so long ardently and prayerfully desired—the presence of her God and Saviour. She retained her reason perfectly to the last, and when the power of utterance failed her, her firm and unshaken confidence of a happy exchange of worlds. If her afflicted family can receive any alleviation of their sorrows, any consolation from the sympathies of others, and from a consciousness that they are not the only ones who feel & deplore her loss, they may find it in the assurance that in every one who knew her, & know how to appreciate her worth, they find a sincere mourner.

DIED—In this village, on Saturday night, in the 39th year of his age, after a long illness, Israel W. Clark, formerly of Cooperstown, Otsego county, and for the last eleven years a resident of Albany. Mr. Clark has been for twenty years connected with the newspaper press. He established a Journal at Cherry Valley in 1810, became Editor of the Watch Tower at Cooperstown, in 1812, revised the Albany Register in 1818, and for the last five years, until his removal to this village to assist in the editorial charge of this paper was employed as associate editor and Legislative Reporter for the Albany Daily Avertiser.
    The deceased was a man of singular disinterestedness and fidelity. His private and political sentiments were entirely guileless. His aim through life, has been to adorn that right maxim of Franklin, which teaches us to do "as much good and as little evil to our fellow citizens" as was possible.
    Politically, Mr. Clark has laboured to purify the character and to elevate the standing of our public journals. He never uttered a venal sentiment, or traced a servile line. His friends and party were chosen from his sober convictions of their worth and patriotism, and all who knew him, know with what devotedness he adhered to both through every variety of fortune. Mr. C. though contributing largely to produce important political results has derived, personally none of their advantages. He has done much for others—little for himself. No man ever laboured more zealously with such generous disregard of pecuniary or political reward. Once, indeed, when impaired health unfitted him for rugged employment, his friends solicited a vacant appointment for him from one whose justice, if not whose gratitude, should have promply answered it. But the claims of the fast friend were postponed to secure the adhesion of the wavering politician. Such is the gratitude of politics!
    We have never known a man more thoroughly imbued with professional sentiments, When bodily pain had unsettled his mind, it ran wildly with reflections which had filled so large a space of his life. "Let me furnish this paragraph before I go!" "Are the ballots all in?" with other expressions of a similar character, indicated that the ruling passion was strong even in death. In view of the messenger, who lingered to receive his departing spirit, he enjoyed the calm, confiding hope of redemption. To the friends who administered the consolations of religion to him, he said he was prepared to exchange the cares of this life for the repose of "home, sweet home." His remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of our citizens, and his memory will long be green in the heart of a bereaved widow, and the recollection of an extended circle of friends.

Melancholy.— On Sunday last, a young man of the name of Julius Catlin, a miniature and portrait painter in New York, left Ensworth's Eagle Tavern and proceeded to the lower Falls, at Carthage, wher he pulled off his clothes and swam out, probably to get a better view of the falls, into the middle of the river, from whence he soon called to a man who was fishing on shore, for assistance and immediately sunk to rise no more. His palette, brushes, &c. were found with his clothes. An elegant gold watch, which was seen upon Mr. C. a few minutes before he went into the water is missing. Judge Strong obtained assistance to search on Sunday, but the body was not found until yesterday, when a party of our citizens went down to rake the river. There were two slight contusions on the face, and the arms appeared to have been craped.
    The verdict of the Coroner's Inquest, after diligent investigation, was that the "deceased came to his death, while bathing, by drowning."

DIED

On Tuesday morning last, in New York, Thomas H. Smith, Esq. an eminent merchant, of this city, in the 40th year of his age. By the misfortunes and death of this noble spirited man, the poor have lost a generous friend, and the commerce of our city one of its most active and enterprising supporters. Possessed but a few years since of an ample fortune acquired by his own successful industry, he has lived to see it dissipated by the disastous changes of the times, and the arts of other men. He has left to his family no inheritance but his debts, and a name illustrious in the annuals of private charity; as the friend of the poor and fatherless, the liberal patron of the young and enterprising, the munificent supporter of evry institution of patriotism or philanthropy which our city or country boasts of.

Melancholy.— On Saturday morning last, Mr. Sherman Baldwin, recently of Michigan Territory, committed suicide at Waterous' tavern, in Sparta, in this county, by discharging the contents of a musket through his head. Mr. B. was about 38 years of age—had buried his wife sometimes previous, in Michigan, and was on his return from Connecticut, whither he had been on a visit with two of his children. He was observed to be in a depressed state of mind, for some days previous, and it is supposed that reverses of fortune had helped to produce that melancholy event.—Livingston Journal.

From the Livingston Register

Sad Accident.—On Wednesday last, the bridge across the Genesee river. on the road leading from this village to the town of York, gave way and precipitated two men, four oxen, and a loaded waggon into the stream below. One of the men Mr. Moses Utter, of Warsaw, Genesee co. was taken out of the water about ten minutes after the fall, a lifeless corpse; the other whose name we have not learned, but who belongs in the same town, sustained but slight injury, and was even able to engage actively in a search among the fallen timbers, for the body of his companion. Although the bridge was forty-eight feet above the bed of the river, and the water at that time only about four and a half feet deep, neither of the oxen were materially injured. It may be considered extremely fortunate that more lives were not lost; as a boat, on which were several persons, had passed under it but a moment before—while a gentleman had had barely left, and another just entering upon, the part which gave way, when the accident happened. The body of Mr. U. was conveved to Warsaw on the same day, for interment. He was appaently about forty years of age, and has left, we learn, a wife and several small children to lament his loss. Although the bridge had been built but seven years, yet many of the timbers, have been wholly exposed to the weather, were found considerably decayed and to their unsound state must the cause of the accident be attributed.The part which gave way, consisted of the mass extending from one of the main piers to the other, which are one hundred feet apart, and between which the river passes—the remainder, consisting of about 60 feet on each bank, is still standing.

Died at West Bloomfield on the evening of the 8th instant, Mr. Eliphalet Huntington, in the 73d year of his age. Mr. Huntington was a native of Norwich, Conn. where he spent the early years of his life. Endowed by nature, with a mind, which required only cultivation to have attained an eminent rank in literature and science. His conversation and correspondence were eagerly sought, and highly prised by those who were honored with his intimate acquaintance, He was for several years a member of the Presbyterian or Congregational Church—and his practice did honor to his profession;— at a leter period of his life, however, his religious opinions underwent a considerable change, but his practice continued the same;—he died a firm believer in God's impartial benevolence to all mankind. His life was marked by many vicissitudes, but the soverest afflictions were borne with resignation and cheerfulness, by a firm reliance in the wisdom and goodness of God. His memory will be cherished by many who in youth have listened to his kind admonitions, and his affectionate and truly paternal instructions.

    Mr. Peshine has for several years been well known in this village, and to those who were of his particular acquaintance will be long and affectionately remembered, To a well cultivated mind he united the most affectionate and pleasing manners, and above all a warm and ardent zeal in the cause of Rejigion—his humble place at the table of our Lord was never vacant when in his power to fill it. Ardently devoted to the spread of the Gospel and dissemination of religious truth, he neglected no opportunity of doing the same—he was a most active and zealous superintendent and instructor in our Sunday Schools and his loss by them will be sverely felt. In the youth and vigor of manhood he is taken from us—his loss is deeply mourned but may the reccollection of his bright example excite others to follow the path he has marked out for them.

He has left a numerous circle of friends, both in this country and in Canada, who feel sensibly their loss. An epitaph of his countryman Burns, we think could not be more happily applied tham to him:
    "An honest man here lies at rest,
    As o'er God with his image bleat;
    And none that knew him need be told
    A warmer heart death ne'er made cold;
    If there a another world, he lives in bliss,
