  1. Brilliant

  2. Many thanks to Col and John at the Almanac and John Foster at the Rochester Historical Society for tracking this down. I’ve forwarded it to other family members who were delighted to read about it . It’s also wonderful to know that small country towns have valued and kept such records. Once again many thanks.
