Check out http://unix2.nysed.gov/nysnp/ . This is the NY State Library Newspaper Project. You can search by city or county to see what old newspapers they have microfilmed and the specific years that they have. This may give you a hint of which papers to check. I believe they will loan these out by interlibrary loan. You might also check the New York Public Library online.
Hope this helps.
