I love these kinds of entries in old newspapers. It is so up close and personal. I also enjoy the social pages in old newspapers that tell who went to visit their cousin in the neighboring town-- and whose grandmother came to visit.

Oops! I should have added that information. Newspapers from around New York, plus some from other states (MA & CA come to mind but there may be others) are online at Fulton History.
