PULTNEYVILLE NY OLD NEWSPAPER NOTICES
Wayne County, N.Y.
Contributed by Allyn Hess Perry, from papers at the Office of the County Historian.
The Commercial Press was a monthly newspaper from Pultneyville, Town of Williamson. The
Office of the County Historian has a small bundle of issues. A small part of the paper was devoted to Personal
Items, listing various names of people from the area.
There is some fascinating reading about the Lake Ontario shipping trade in the 1860s, and neat
ads for businessess from all over the place in these papers. There was quite a schedule of ships from
Pultneyville to Charlotte to Toronto, naming ships and captains (the new ferry runs between Charlotte/Rochester
and Toronto.) Not to be ignored in this paper are the railroad schedules, with stops in Palmyra, Oswego,
Syracuse. And the Pultneyville & Palmyra Stage. "Leave daily at 6:45am - Arriving at 7:30pm connection
at Palmyra with the N.Y.C.R. Road, Going West at 9:46a.m. and 4:20p.m. Going East at 11:20a.m. and
4:20p.m." The obits aren't detailed but give such an essence of the way life was. Spellings and misspellings
are exactly as in the original paper.
