At the recent book sale of the Genealogy Department at Binghamton Public Library I found a very old but interesting book originally owned by a Helen D. Miller of Chenango Bridge, NY. The book binding is so old the title is illegible, but it may be "Department of Agriculture Report of 1867." Helen pasted many poems, obituaries and wedding announcements on both sides of each page of about two thirds of the book. The poems cover a wide variety of subjects including temperence issues. There are two articles about the accidental shooting death of 4-year old Louise Palmer; the death of a Rev. R.A. Washburn; 13 year old Blanche Martin in 1895; the marriage of Jennie Taber and Thomas B. Kattell as well as Nora Barnes to Arthur Mason in 1902. I will try to post some of the material if anyone is interested.
