MARRIAGES FROM THE "CHERRY VALLEY GAZETTE"
1818 - 1834


The marriages of local residents below were abstracted from an unpublished typescript bound in Volume 416 of the NYS D.A.R. Miscellaneous Records, submitted to the New York City Public Libary by the NYS DAR in 1974. No date, transcriber or chapter name was attributed to this work. As there were no explanatory notes whatsoever, missing was any statement as to whether the dates refer to actual day of marriage or date of publication of the newspaper notice. However, as our abstracted records of the 1st Presbyterian Church of Cherry Valley give an October 15, 1818 date for the marriage of Elijah Flint and Delina Phenes/Phines, while the date below is October 20, the dates are most likely referring to date of newspaper notice. Bear in mind that at this time 1) a marriage may have occurred weeks or months before publication in a newspaper, and 2) relatively few marriages were made note of in a newspaper.




Please use these notices only as a guide for further research.

DATES APPEAR TO BE DATE OF PUBLICATION OF NEWSPAPER NOTICE, NOT DATE OF MARRIAGE. DO NOT ENTER INTO YOUR RECORDS OR PASS ON TO OTHERS AS ACTUAL DATE OF MARRIAGE.

The full transcription containing the abstracted marriage notices from the Cherry Valley Gazette (Otsego County) for 1818 - 1834 is in Volume 416 of the New York State D.A.R. records (available for your personal viewing in three locations - the New York City Public Library, the New York State Library in Albany, N.Y., and at the main D.A.R. research library in Washington, D.C.). All punctuation and spelling are exactly as in the typescript.

Bear in mind that during this time period published marriage notices were brief, unlike those in our own papers, and what you see above was pretty much the extent of coverage. Information about availability of early NY State Newspapers is on line at the The New York State Newspaper Project. As we have no information about the couples or their family background, please contact the appropriate historical society in Herkimer, Montgomery, Otsego or Schoharie Counties for inquiries about persons listed, as well as for availability of surviving church/justice of the peace records.
