Looking for information on Walter Emerson of Weare, Hillsborough Co., N.H. that buys 1/2 interest of Printing Co. from Elbridge G. Eastman of Concord, Merrimack Co., N.H. June 27,1834, and Elbridge G. Eastman, Nathaniel Peabody Rodgers or 'The Herald of Freedom'.
Elbridge G. Eastman had been publisher of the New Hampshire Baptist Register, in 1835 started a newspaper 'The Abolitionist' and several weeks later changed the name to 'The Herald of Freedom'. By 1838 Nathaniel Peabody Rogers is Editor of the Herald of Freedom and Elbridge G. Eastman is in Washington D.C. working I believe with the Washington Globe before May 25th,1838...
Eastman's working history in the Printing business is what I'm researching up thru 1838. In the fall of 1838 he accepts an offer from then Congressman and Speaker of the House James K. Polk to move to Knoxville,Tennesssee and start the Knoxville Argus newspaper and write in favor of Polk and the Democrats to aid in his bid for Governor and President. I have his history after this move. A return to Washington D.C. in the Polk Admin.,and his return to Tennessee, Nashville this time, in the Spring of 1847, once again hired by Polk, Gov. Brown and the leading Democrats to futher their cause via the Nashville Union Newspaper on 12 Nov. 1846.
Any information on Emerson, Eastman, Rodgers or 'The Herald of Freedom will be of great help.
Thanks from Nashville, Davidson Co.,Tennessee.
