Author: Fred Q. Bowman
Paperback, 356 pages
Condition: Very Good
This is the final volume in a three-volume series of vital records drawn from early New York newspapers. This volume focuses on the interior county of Otsego and on the 300-mile strip comprising the eastern-most counties of Clinton, Essex, Saratoga, Rensselaer, Albany, Columbia, and "Old Dutchess," which, prior to 1812, included the territory of present-day Putnam County. Records in this volume are drawn from the marriage and death columns of newspapers published before 1835 in each of the above-named counties. Bridegrooms and individuals who were the subject of death notices are listed alphabetically. Marriage officials are identified in the Appendix, while all others mentioned in the text, such as brides, parents and siblings, are listed in the index. In many instances, complete details have been abstracted--place and date of marriage or death, names of relatives, towns of residence, etc.
