Tri County Clippings- Troy Gazette Register 1902 - 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.

County’s Oldest Newspaper.

The Bradford Argus this county’s oldest newspaper, with the issue of last week began the seventieth year under that name. Its editor and publisher, E. Ashmun Parsons, son of Eligah A. Parsons who became connected with the paper in 1839, took charge in 1966. The Argus can claim the distinction of being the progenitor of the fist daily newspaper in Bradford county, a daily edition being issued for two weeks from that office in 1863.

The beginning of The Argus dates back more than 70 years, however, for it was originally started as the Anti-Masonic Democrat by O. P. Ballard at Troy, this county; Dr. E. R. Utter bought the plant in 1832, removed it to the county seat and changed its name to the one it has since borne. Until that party went out of existence it was run as a Whig organ, and on the birth of the Republican party it espoused its principles until 1862. It formally became a Democratic organ in 1864. Recent improvements in the old Argus building, which the paper has occupied for over 50 years, makes of it a model printing office. –Review.
