Cabbage, Potatoes and Apples Proving Profitable Crops in Orleans County
The hard freeze recently did not injure cabbage and potatoes on and in
the ground as at first reported, and tons of cabbage are being drawn and
shipped at Albion, and have been a most profitable produce this year.
unusually fine, it is said by some growers, and the apple crop in many
localities in the county may indeed be called a great one.
The loss upon apples last year in storage will not be repeated, it is
thought, this year on account of the far better quality of the fruit. Morgan
Linson, and Bailey at Albion, D. S. BECKWITH at Carlton Station, beside
in the county, east and north, have about 100,000 barrels in cold storage.

York. Justices' Court (Albany) Books 9-12.
The database begins with Surname A at

names. This will take you to the other Surnames that are
online. This work is thanks to volunteer transcriber Karen
Cundari, who is busy transcribing this hard-to-read
You'll notice there are many names marked as illegible or
partially illegible. The ledger books that were filmed are
faded and much of the writing is difficult if not
impossible to see.
This database is not the same one that is online for the
years 1821-1991from the Albany County Hall of Records at

Looking for assistance in finding a family who lived in Western New York with
the a surname that is often misspelled. It has been written as...MINEHAN,
MINNIHAN, MINNIGAN, MEENIHAN, MINIHAN, etc.
Looking for John MINEHAN and wife Hannorah (Nora) and children Anna, Joseph,
and Philip. All that is known is that John, Nora, and Anna were born in
Ireland and Joseph and Philip in New York -- Philip is said to be born in Lewiston
NY in 1858. By 1860, Nora is a widdow and living with her brother Michael
DUFFY in Greene County, Ohio. I believe Nora's husband John died in NY and that
is why she moved to Greene County Ohio.
I believe John MINEHAN (MINNIGAN) had several brothers -- Michael and Philip
lived for a time in New York but settled in Mercer County PA prior to 1870.
Perhaps another brother, Jerry, ended up in Greene County OH.
Has anyone come across any MINEHANs or MINNIGANs that might fit this
description? Can anyone check marriage and cemetery books for a John MINEHAN (with
associated surname spellings)? John would have died prior to 1860 and married
Hannorah DUFFY either in Ireland or NY around 1848 to 1855.
Thanks in advance,

I have several 19th century photographs that were taken by a professional
photographer in Medina. The backs of the photos read:
"Ground Floor Gallery, Geo H. Hedley, Artist & Taxidermist, Brown's
Block, Medina, N.Y., Negatives Preserved."
Though the information is the same, the format of the information on the back
of some photos is different. Perhaps, this indicates a different time
Can anyone familiar with the history of Medina tell me when the Hedley studio
was in business at this address?
