Date: Wed, 23 Nov 2005 09:17:16 -0500 From: Lisa Francavilla <firstname.lastname@example.org> Maybe you've tried this source already? But in case you haven't... "History and Bibliography of American Newspapers, 1690-1820" - by Clarence S. Brigham (1947), 1:595-6, says the following about the Ulster County Gazette (Kingston, NY): That it was published by Samuel Freer and Son from 1798-1803, then continued on as the Ulster Gazette from 1803 to some time after 1820. Apparently the masthead shows his name as "Samuel S. Freer" and from 1815 to around 1820 Anthony Freer was part of the effort, but whether that's the son or another relative is not clear in Brigham. Unfortunately, a cursory check of other sources and monographs at my disposal turns up nothing on "Freer" or the "Ulster Gazette." No hits in online biographical sources, but it looks like there are several on various genealogical sites. Good Luck, Lisa Francavilla Managing Editor Papers of Thomas Jefferson: Retirement Series
