Part 13
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 businesses 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.

Pultneyville, April 25, 1867.......................................................S.C. Cuyler


Died at the residence of his father, James Robinson, in Pultneyville, Wayne Co., N.Y., on the 15th of April, 1867, Mr. Charles Robinson, aged 33 years.

Our friend Charles was cut down, in the morning of life, by that most flattering of all diseases "Consumption," which had long since marked him as its "victim," though he had been confined to the house only a few months. The deceased was a young man of generous impulses, warm in his attachments, devoted to his friends, and true in all the relations of life. It was only a few days before his death, that he became satisfied he could not get well, and as he began to reflect upon the important change, he became earnest and thoughtful about the future, desired and sought acceptence with God, seemed to enjoy much in "Social Prayer," and was truly happy in the contemplation of the thought that he would soon meet his near and dear friends in Spirit Life. He was faithful to those who came to see him, exorting them to live a life of holiness, and thus fit themselves for the home of the blessed. As I sat by his bed it was a pleasure to hear him say, with such earnestness and faith, that he would meet me in the spirit world when I was called home.

Charles leaves a little girl who is now an orphan, together with a large circle of relatives, to mourn his early departure....................................................................................S.C.C.
