The following was transcribed from original paper copies of The Palmyra Courier, a large-format 4-page newspaper published in Palmyra, NY. These four issues contain hundreds of local residents, helping to fill the gap between the 1880 and 1900 censuses! The Palmyra Courier published day-to-day news for the town of Palmyra, adjacent towns, Port Gibson in Ontario County, and general county news. All spellings are as in the original and will not be "corrected." As the transcriptions and coding took a long time to do, the tedious process of bolding most of the names individually wasn't done. Please use the search function of your browser to find persons of interest.

The many friends of Dr. Ed C. North will be glad to learn that he has concluded to remain in Palmyra and resume the practice of dentistry
It is estimated that there were 8,000 people on the Palmyra fair grounds on Saturday last. The crowd was certainly immense, and every one appeared to be happy and good-natured throughout the day.
Miss Jennie E. Ward, of this village, won the prize toilet set, offered by T. W. Hicks to the person who would guess the nearest number of black seeds in a certain watermelon. Miss Ward guessed 445, the exact number.
Mr. J. B. Kent desires us to return his earnest thanks to friends and neighbors for the kindness extended during the sickness of his wife and his subsequent bereavement - the memory of which will abide with him as long as life lasts.
Last year the Palmyra Union Agricultural Society purchased the piece of land lying west of the entrance to the fair grounds, and last week Mr. Johnson, the President of the Society, purchased of Mrs. Butterfield, the lot adjoining the entrance on the east, for which $500 was paid. The Society is certainly to be congratulated on obtaining the last purchase.

ERECTED TO HIS MEMORY.
The Webster Monument Unveiled and
Dedicated by the Sir Knights.
The Rev. John G. Webster was the beloved Rector of Zion church, Palmyra, for nearly twenty years. His resignation of his pastorate in April, 1884, was received with surprise, and accepted with universal regret. With his family he removed to Greenbush, near Albany, where death came to him suddenly on Tuesday morning, September 27th, 1887. The remains were brought to this village, and on Friday, September 30th, under the auspices of his Masonic brothers, were interred in the beautiful plat selected by him, at the request of our citizens, when he came to Palmyra in June of last year to dedicate the Rogers' Memorial Chapel. On Monday afternoon, October 1st, the unveiling and dedication of the monument erected to his memory by the Knights Templar of the State of New York, took place.
Although the day was cold and a heavy rain prevailed, a large number of friends were present to witness the ceremonies which took place at the Palmyra cemetery.
[Note: this is a lengthy article taking up 3 full newspaper columns, describing the progression of the parade, organizations taking part, unveiling of the monument, and long verbatim eulogies by Geo. McGown and Rev. C. L. Twing.]

- Last Sunday was in all respects the hottest day of the year so far.
- The work of taking down the old school building has not yet commenced.
- Hon. Pliny T. Sexton and wife will soon leave Palmyra for their summer cottage on Lake George.
- Ellison R. Purdy expects to be at Friends Meeting at Macedon Centre next Sabbath, the 6th inst.
- The refreshing rain of Wednesday morning somewhat cooled the air and made life a trifle more endurable.
- The great heat of the past week has had a most depressing effect upon business as well as upon citizens generally.
- A large number of strangers were in town on Tuesday in attendance at the funeral obsequies of the late Col. Corning.
- Rev. Mr. McLaughlin of Macedon will supply the Newark Universalist church Sunday evenings during July and August.
- There will be some very fine trotting on the fair grounds in Palmyra on the Fourth, which will probably bring a great crowd into the village.
- The Rev. C. W. Winchester, of Medina, formerly of Palmyra, sailed for Antwerp on Wednesday last. He will remain abroad until September first. His family did not accompany him.
- We have had some extremely hot weather this week. On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, the thermometer was in the close vicinity of 90 degrees in the shade, and the nights were nearly as hot as the days.
- "Clark's Military History of Wayne County in the Civil War," has been in great demand this week, by the young writers of foreign papers, in writing up their account of Colonel Corning.
- A well dressed gentleman, named Evans, has got himself into trouble by passing a worthless check on Mr. Throop of the Eagle Hotel. He will spend a few weeks in the Monroe County Penitentiary, after which it is claimed, other parties will be glad to make his acquaintance.
- A good many from this section are intending to spend the Fourth at Walworth. Hon. Charles T. Saxton will deliver the oration, and the other exercises will be of a peculiarly interesting character. A royal dinner will be served at the Pacific hotel, for which only fifty cents will be charged.
- We are informed that our village trustees have granted a franchise to an electric light company, and that sometime in the future Palmyra may be lighted by electricity. We have always believed that our local gas company should be protected and we hope the contract which this company now has for lighting our streets will be continued for may years to come. Our local enterprises should be protected in preference to foreign ones.
- We presume there will be the same crowd in Palmyra on the Fourth that has filled our streets in years past. The young man and his best girl will come in from the country and indulge freely in lemonade and peanuts. The German element will be here in goodly number and will quaff their beer and talk of "Faderland." There will also be present the rougher class who will drink and quarrel and make the closing hours of the day hideous.

- Another severe thunder storm passed over Palmyra on Wednesday night. For hours the rain fell in torrents, while the thunder peals were of the most startling character. In Marion, as stated elsewhere, this storm did much damage. At this writing, Thursday morning, the weather is several degrees cooler.
- Our neighboring village of Marion was visited by an old fashioned cyclone on Wednesday evening of this week. For nearly an hour the wind blew a hurricane, accompanied by thunder and lightning and driving rain. The fine new residence of Lewis Warner was demolished, barns were blown down, trees uprooted, and damage done to perperty amounting to at least ten thousand dollars. Several persons were injured, but no lives were lost.
- A stock company has been organized in Marion, called the Marion Horse Trotters' and Breeders' Association. The officers are: T. M. Clark, president; J. C. Rich, secretary; A. P. Williams, treasurer. Grounds have been leased for five years of B. D. Davis. A half mile track has been laid out and the work of grading and leveling will be begun immediately.

A Brilliant Social Event.
The reception of the "Class of '90," given by Miss Clara Stoddard at her residence on West Main street, on Friday evening, will long be remembered as one of Palmyra's most brilliant social events.

Guests were received by Miss Stoddard and her cousin, Miss Kellogg, of Clifton Springs. In the course of the evening, the guests were seated at tables, and several spreads were served by Ridley, the well known caterer, after which a splendid programme, consisting of twenty numbers was danced, to very fine orchestrial music.

Important Events Gathered Up by the "Courier's Live Scribblers."
- More trees were prostrated by the late storm than at any other time, from a like cause, within the memory of middle aged men, at least. The farm of J. O. Clark suffered severely, twenty apple-trees and three chimneys yielding to the terrific force of the blast.
- The Grange social at the house of Mr. Clark on the 21st inst., was largely attended, and very enjoyable. Among out of town visitors were G. H.Reeves, of Brighton; L. H. Clark, of Macedon, and A. J. Rice, of Sodus.
- The excellent literary, musical and social entertainment at the M. E. church on Wednesday evening, June 25th, was worthy of a larger audience. Miss Lou Brown, of Rochester, recited several selections; Miss Dork, of Newark, sang a few pieces of music, and strawberries, etc., followed.
- A strawberry and ice cream festival was held last Friday evening under Presbyterian auspices, at the residence of J. R. Foster. The attendance was large beyond expectation, and the demand for cream and berries correspondingly great. Among the chief managers of the affair were Miss H. Culver, Miss Franc Foster, and Miss H. Frommer.
- Miss Ida Thorpe, of Greene county, is likely to remain some time at the residence of her uncle, J. W. Pyatt.
- On Tuesday evening, the 24th inst., Rev. A. H. Johnson met his "Normal Class" for bible study. There were twenty members present; and the lesson was interesting and fairly well learned. Great things are expected from this class.
_ The reunion of the "Honor Bright Society" took place on Wednesday, the 25th inst. F. A. Lewis presided, and a very interesting address was given by Charles Howes. We understand that the society was well represented, and letters were read from absentees. Addison Gardner sent a very entertaining letter form Chicago. F. A. Lewis was continued PResident and W. M. Lawrence, Secretary.
- "The Irish Soldier" was given on Friday evening by Rev. Mr. Goffney. Our people evidently enjoyed and appreciated the lecture, but if we may credit the words of public lecturers who have been here from time to time, Walworth audiences lack the sympathetic, responsive attention that is always an inspiration to a lecturer.
- The town Sunday school convention took place on Saturday. Mr. Goffney's address was full of interest and instruction, and a beautiful little recitation from Lottie Willetts was encored.
- The clear weather has been improved by our farmers, and the haying is well under way. T. G. Yeomans & Sons are filling their silo with clover - a new "hay loader" in the fields and an engine at the barn have attracted considerable attention the past week.
- As the vacation season comes on one and another of our young people who have gone out and gotten a foot hold in the world, revisit Walworth, and it is very gratifying to note the developments in some cases.... Willie Greenwood, who graduated from Macedon Academy two years ago last Friday evening, and took a place in a store in Rochester the next Monday morning, which he has held ever since, is a model of promptness and energy. Comparing him with those of his own age, who rise gracefully to the occasion of a base ball game only, we are led to inquire, what makes this difference?
- The noise of the mower can be heard on every side.
- The strawberry and cherry crop is nearly harvested. A fair crop of berries has been taken from the vines. Of cherries we can boast but little.
- Our Sunday schools were well represented at the convention held a Walworth Saturday afternoon. Mrs. F. A. Peacock gave a very choice reading, which was listened to with more than ordinary interest. The solo by Miss Mamie Braithwaite, and the recitation by Miss Eva Byam were well received.
- Mrs. Mary Smith is suffering with heart trouble. Her services in the church and Sunday school are much missed.
- The list of sick should contain the name of Mr. William Holdrege, whose present condition is alarming.
- Mrs. J. R. Newhall spent Tuesday afternoon with her parents in Ontario.
- Miss Ethel Thayer of Palmyra, is visiting a few of her old friends.
- Miss Emma Esley and Miss Emma Hicks have finished their summer terms of school.
- Miss Clara Braithwaite is home spending her vacation.
- Mrs. Oscar Smith is dealing in cherries at present. For some reason unknown to the public "Oc." did not go West to harvest his forty acres of strawberries.
- Mr. Ed. Esley had the front part of his buggy smashed yesterday afternoon. Be a little careful what horse you ride after Eva.
- Next Sunday evening, in the interest of the W. C. T. U., Miss Downing, of Macedon Center, will read her essay on temperance. A few recitations and some singing will complete the programme for the evening.
- People, in general, are much interested in the present prospect of a railroad near our little village.
- Loren Howk who is a student at the Ann Arbor medical college, is at home spending the Summer vacation.
- Mrs. Eugene Garzlay of Rochester, has been spending a few weeks with friends and relatives in this town.
- Rev. S. H. Foster and wife are visiting friends in the Eastern part of the State.

- Mr. and Mrs. Henry M. Johnson returned to Palmyra on Wednesday morning, bringing with them the remains of their son, Mr. Frederic A. Johnson, who died recently at Orange, California.

Fire! Fire! Fire!
Citizens of Palmyra, as we have never before appealed to you for aid and as we have always been ready and willing to do our duty in case of fire. But as we are badly in need of new uniforms and other necessary supplies, and as we have not the money to get them, we have arranged with Mr. J. P. Clark and Miss Lillian Palmer, well known and clever people, assisted by a well selected cast of Palmyra talent to produce the emotional comedy-drama "The Child of the Wreck," at the Palmyra Opera House on Wednesday evening, March 4th. Now, friends and well wishers of our company, we ask you one and all to turn out and help us, and we assure you that you will all be remembered and your kindness appreciated. Yours faithfully,
SEXTON FIRE EXTINGUISHER CO.
To the Editor of the Palmyra Courier:
The statement going the rounds that the late Henry Pilcher was embarrassed, and that his auction was a failure, caused him to commit the rash act on the morning of the 18th, is all wrong and without and foundation. He was not embarrassed to any amount, and his auction was a success. His property sold well and for much more than he or any one would have expected it to, and he expressed himself, the same evening of the auction, as being well satisfied with the sale. From one who was there and knows the circumstances.
Mr. U. Milliman, for many years past a prominent resident of Palmyra, and known as one of the most competent and successful Veterinary Surgeons in this part of the State, having located in another section of the country, desires, through the columns of the Courier to say : "Being about to remove form Palmyra and engage in business in another section I desire, at this time, upon the eve of my departure to express to the people of this place generally, and more particularly to my former friends and patrons, my sincere appreciation of their past patronage and favors. In severing my business relations with the people of Palmyra it gives me much pleasure and satisfaction to recommend to their kind consideration and future patronage, Mr. Henry T. White, who, I consider thoroughly competent and equipped to meet successfully all the various and complicate diseases of horses, cattle, etc. Concluding further, I would say, that in leaving Mr. White as my successor, I feel that my former friends and patrons, as also all others who may have need of the services of a Veterinary Surgeon will find in him a gentleman thoroughly qualified in skill and ability to treat all and every disease of horses, cattle, etc., to a successful and satisfactory issue. Respectfully.
