JEFFERSON COUNTY, NEW YORK

     

1866 JEFFERSON COUNTY BUSINESS DIRECTORY


 

In 1866 Hamilton Child published a directory to the businesses of Jefferson County. These names were transcribed for us by Ellie Flint from a small advertising pamphlet, about the size of "The Old Farmer's Almanac," printed on newsprint. Each page is filled with pictorial advertisements, all in black and white, of course. A column of names occupies a small portion of the page. The pages are arranged first by town, then by the community, and lastly by the business. Ellie has sorted them for us into three columns, which is not how they appear in the pamphlet. We have alphabetized the men's names in the first column. The occupation or business occupies the second column, and lastly, the name of the company, if any.

These are only the businesses. There is no attempt to list all the people in the county, and of the ones that appear, probably they are only the ones who paid for advertisement. If you know your person of interest was a blacksmith in Jefferson County in 1864, and his name does not appear here, it merely indicates he didn't pay for an ad. What this does provide is a slice of business activity in Jefferson County in 1864, proprietors, and place names. If you do not recognize a place name, try finding it in Jefferson County Places
