CIRCA  1890-1926

This list of obituaries, gathered from local newspapers, were generously donated to the Oswego Co. NYGenWeb, from someone who wishes to remain anonymous. The names were copied many years ago from the books of Leafy Green Smith, with the idea that maybe others could be helped by them.  There were no identifiers like source, dates, pages, etc. As always, for further information on any of individuals, please contact the local Town Historian or Historical Society.

Leafy Green Smith of Mexico, N. Y. liked to keep newspaper clippings.  In a copy of the Report of the Commissioner of Agriculture, year unknown, but about 1877, she pasted stories, poems and an assortment of vital records from local newspapers.  Time has treated the material badly, but some is still readable.  This clipping file is now owned by Mrs. Helen Smith Wilson of California, granddaughter of Leafy.
