In my previous post, a source for early central New York, an excellent resource for early central New York marriages was provided. It was "Early marriages from newspapers published in central New York; v. 01". The same author, William Martin Beauchamp (1830-1925), also printed a second volume, containing deaths published in central New York Newspapers in the 1800s. The entire book is available for free at FamilySearch.
Below is an example of the information provided. The following Leonard deaths are recorded in Volume 2, on page 92:
