        The Cazenovia Village Register is the earliest listing of business that I have found.  It was published in the Republican Monitor, the village newspaper of the day, and it appears to be a quite complete compilation of all the merchants, officers, professionals, manufacturers, and artisans and tradesmen in the community.  The original list presents only the first initial and last name of the individual but I have used various contemporary primary sources such as newspaper advertisements, village tax lists, census records, property records, etc., to identify the first names, corporate partners, and correct spellings.  The information within square brackets [ ] is given to expand further upon the original entry.  I present an alphabetized list, with full cross-reference to secondary entries and junior partners, and the original format is given in the second part of this page.
