(1808, 1809 and 1810 are wonderfully detailed)

1808   1809   1810  1811   1812   1813   1814   1815

1816   1817   1818   1819   1820   1821   1822   1823


These notes were made over 20 years ago in the beginning of my research.
At that time I only collected references to the businesess in Cazenovia Village
and I had not yet figured out a format and proper notation proceedures.

These need to be fleshed out and there are hundreds more items that need to be added.
SORRY!
