Records of the Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, New York. Brookhaven. In 1885, the Town of Brookhavens town officers resolved to have the town records copied and published. These transcribed records provide a wealth of names and lists of names, which combine with the details of town business to present a portrait of the town during this period of time. In doing this work, the records have been followed in their order as they appear, and the copy has been carefully and diligently compared with the originals, exhibiting the capital letters, the spelling, the abbreviations, the punctuation and the OMISSION to punctuate, in fact omitting nothing which seemed to be an authentic part of the records. A wide variety of issues are discussed in these records: boundaries, cattle running at large, commissioners of highways, commissioners of schools, land leases, fishing, oystering, support of the poor, railways, roads, slaves, town meetings, trustees, and much more. A few notes have been introduced here and there, which might be useful for reference or explanation. (1888), 2012, 5x8, paper, 580 pp 9780788428494 101-B2849 - $43.50

Genealogical Abstracts from the South Carolina Gazette, 1732-1735. Alton T. Moran. When the South Carolina General Assembly offered a 1,000 bounty to obtain a printer in 1731, several men responded and two papers resulted-the South Carolina Gazette, printed by Thomas Whitmarsh, and the South Carolina Weekly, printed by Eleazer Phillips. (No issues of the latter survive.) Thomas Whitmarsh was an Englishman who had worked with Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia. After coming to Charleston in the summer of 1731, Whitmarsh set up a shop for printing pamphlets, broadsides, legal forms, and the Gazette. He died in September of 1733 and the Gazette languished until February of 1734 when Lewis Timothee, another associate of Franklin, took it up and continued to publish it until his death in 1738. This collection of genealogical data includes all mentions of local residents beginning with the first issue of the Gazette on 8 January 1732 through 27 December 1735. The data runs the gamut from the usual marriage and death notices to all kinds of interesting tid-bits such as notices of runaway slaves, advertisements, auctions, and stolen or strayed animals, and provides an intimate view of life in South Carolina in the early 1700s.
