1834-1839

The Troy Whig, a weekly newspaper, ran from 1834 to 1855. In compiling this index, the original 1935 transcribers did not include records that were ALSO reported in the Daily Whig. These 73 death records and 28 marriage records were ONLY printed in the Weekly Whig.

These records will be of particular interest to Troy area genealogy researchers since the dates of death and marriages predate the 1880 N.Y.S. law on reporting of this information. A number of the records show the age of the individual at the time of death and for many of the married women, the name of the husband is also shown. Military ranks (Gen., Lieut., Captain, Col., etc.) are indicated for a number of the names.

The numbers shown for page/column identifies the page and column number in the Troy Whig where the death notice was published. Death records published in newspapers for this time period were limited to very brief information such as the name, age and date of death. If the individual was of some prominence, then it is possible that there may be a further story in the paper.
