Tri County Clippings- Troy Gazette Register 1901 - Yesterday's News

Typed by Pat MOTT Gobea
These clippings from ancient and fragile newspapers stored above the Troy Gazette-Register office are being typed by Tri-County volunteers for presentation on site. Primarily we are preserving the neighborhood news columns and the obituary, marriage and birth information included in them. I intend also to include articles that show the influences on the lives and attitudes of our local populations at the time, and I will also illustrate the individual pages with ads from the era. Nothing is more revealing of lifestyle than the goods and services available.
The TGR covers the area of all townships surrounding Troy and many neighborhoods have a local column submitted, but not necessarily every week or even every year.
Our thanks goes to the staff of the Troy Gazette-Register for giving us access to this valuable old news so that we can share it with you. There is no better way to understand the culture and customs of our old communities than by sifting through these clippings.  Even the names of some of these old communities have ceased to exist in today's world, but we have them captured and preserved here.  If you do not have the time to enjoy the luxury of sifting through clippings, these will be included in the Partitioned PICO Search Engine which you can reach from current What's New Page of the site. There is a partition just for the TGR Clippings.

Troy Home Guards. The Original Roll of the Men from Troy and Vicinity Who Volunteered to Help Defend the State at the Call of Governor Curtin. An Interesting Document.

Mr. C. F. Sayles, one of the original volunteers in the Troy Home Guards, has the original roll of the men who responded to the call of Governor Curtin, in 1863, to defend the State from invasion by the rebels. While many of the men are dead or have moved to other places, yet quite a number are still residents of Troy and vicinity, and all will be remembered by the older citizens.

It is an interesting and valuable paper and will bring the stirring and anxious times of the ‘60’s vividly to the mind of many an old Trojan. Mr. Sayles has kindly allowed us to copy the call and roll for the Register subscribers, and we give below the call as sent out and names in the order in which they were signed to the roll: (Typed left to right)

Harrisburg, June 16, 1863.

To the Postmasters Penna.

Please put the following up in the most conspicuous places in your town.

O. W. Sees.

Harrisburg, 16th, to P. Masters.

The enemy are approaching. I must call upon the people for the defense of the State and have called upon the Militia for that purpose. The time of service will only be while the danger is imminent. Send forward the Companies as soon as possible. A. G. Curtin.

Troy Home guards.

The undersigned do hereby agree to enroll themselves into an Infantry Company to be called the "Troy Home Guards" with the view and design of perfecting themselves individually and collectively to hold themselves in readiness at all times to tender their services to the Governor of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania to repel the present invasion and to maintain and support the Constitution and laws of this State and of the United States.
