Recently, I got an e-mail from Michelle Henry, the County Historian for Chautauqua County, stating that an old scrapbook had been received by them that contained clippings from Delaware County newspapers. She kindly mailed the scrapbook to me and as time permits, I will be transcribing the various lists contained therein. The following list does not state from what newspaper this was clipped.--Joyce Riedinger, November 17, 2009
