Well, this contact is exactly why I have kept this "old" aol email address.

The items you sent are from the Wayne County, New York historian's office which is located in Lyons, New York.

Palmyra Sentinel

A check of the book shows on page 66 a mention in the 1 November 1831 paper a listing of the "Young Men's Democratic Committee of Vigilance held a meeting at the Eagle Hotel, Oct. 8, 1831" One of the men listed as attending was Augustus Daggett.

Page 73 is from the 25 July 1832 issue.
"Cholera is quite prevalent at this time - two deaths in Rochester.
Notice of a meeting of the Republicans of the town of Palmyra, signed:.....A. K. Daggett."

A quick peek at the censuses show that Augustus and his family were residing in Mendon, Monroe County, New York in the 1840 and 1850 census. If the birth location of his 13 year old son is correct, then the family was in Michigan in 1837 when the son was born.

The family is not shown in the 1855 census taken by the State of New York. So they must have moved on. It appears that Augustus Daggett is buried in Warren County, Illinois.

Just an FYI, Wayne County was formed in 1823 when it was broken off from Ontario County, New York. So you may want to check that county for Levi and Augustus.

Hope this helps.
