Marriages and Deaths from Rochester Newspapers
July 1, 1837 - Dec. 31, 1837

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 these newspapers published in Rochester:

  1. Rochester Daily Advertiser was published from April 5, 1830 to Dec. 12, 1856. There are no existing issues for the latter half of 1837.
  2. Rochester Republican (weekly) was published Aug. 7, 1827 - Aug. 27, 1884. This was the weekly newspaper that was published by the same office as the Rochester Daily Advertiser so it has many of the same records. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm that has most of the issues for 1837
  3. The Rochester Gem (semi-monthly) was published 1829 - 1843. The Rochester Public Library has a bound volume for 1837.
  4. Rochester Daily Democrat was published from Jan. 1833 - 1870. Rochester Public Library has a microfilm that has most of the issues for 1837 up to Aug. 27, 1837.
  5. Monroe Democrat (weekly) was published from Feb. 1834 to 1857. There are no known existing copies of this newspaper.

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.

OBITUARY NOTICE.

Died, in Lima, Livingston co. N. Y. April 26, Austin Brown in his 75th year.

The deceased was one of that venerable band whom we are indebted, under the great Ruler of nations for American Independence. As we followed his cold remains to their silent home, we could not but reflect on the scenes of his early life as connected with the dearest interests of our beloved country—of that eventful period, when in the ardor pf youth he shouldered his knapsack and his musket, took an affectionate leave of his friends and his home, and hastened to join the armies of the Revolution; exchanging the peaceful enjoyments of the fireside, for the clangor of arms and the perils of war. – Let his name, and that of all others of his associates in sufferings and struggles for liberty, be sweetly embalmed in the memory of every American citizen on their tombstones let it be written, so deeply engraven that the last generations may read, "A Soldier of the Revolution."

The subject of this notice was a native of Hebron, Connecticut, was born in July, 1762. He enlisted in the Continental Army in the early part of '76 during the war, and continued a faithful soldier through all those scenes which tried men's souls, until the close of the war, and honorably discharged by Washington at the disbanding of the American Army in 1783.

He was frequently under the immediate command of Washington. Soon after joining the Army he was attached to the Light Infantry commanded 3 or 4 years by Lafayette, in the middle and southern states. During his continuance in the service he was in the following battles: Long Island, Red Bank, White Plains, Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine, Germantown, Monmouth, Guilford, Hoboken—at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. He was also in several other battles of minor importance.

At the close of the war he returned to Hebron; and removed to Lima in 1797. He was one of the first settlers of this country, assisted with his own hands in clearing away the dense forest and converting the wilderness into a fruitful field. He had a pleasing interview with La Fayette at Rochester, on his last visit to America.

But above all, the deceased was a soldier of the cross. He enlisted in the service of the King of Zion in the year 1801; was a member of the Baptist Church in Avon at the time of his discharge from the Christian war. For many years he suffered much from bodily infirmities. Toward the close of his life his sufferings were extreme, but he bore them with Christian patience and resignation, leaving behind a good evidence that he has exchanged a vale of tears for a mansion in the skies.
