Juror List for 1888


Highlighting Waterown Re-Union Errata

Errata from the Watertown Re-Union newspapers may include: obituaries, death notices not listed elsewhere, anniversaries, birthday parties, special testimonials of persons in Jefferson County, as well as other events that occurred in the county, state, national or international stage to bring into a timeframe what was occurring when ancestors lived in the county. Persons of note, such as Lillie Langtry, presidents, foreign dignitaries, and events such as warfare between Native Americans and the U. S. Army that were happening as late as the 1800’s, global warfare, technological advancements, farming highlights, industry news in fishing, boating, racing (both horse and boating), are sometimes included in Errata to give the visitor a better overview of the times. Articles are selected at random for inclusion in Errata. The political scene in Jefferson County was always lively and people from other states often contributed their views to the newspaper. From an historical perspective, the Watertown Re-Union did a remarkable amount of reporting and accessing the information has been made easy by the New York Historic Newspapers site. The technological advancement of the telegraph, which made news travel quickly, was a definite asset for the newspapers of the time and is reflected in the reporting process.
