I am aware of a Beman Brockway in Jefferson County New York. He started the Watertown Reformer, which later became the Watertown Daily Times. The Company that owned the Watertown Daily Times was called the Brockway Company until the 1970s, when they changed the name.

Brockway is not a common name in Jefferson County, New York. There may be a family connection. You may want to check with the Watertown Daily Times at:
