A History of Waterloo New York Newspapers

The pioneer printer of Seneca County was George Lewis, who, in the year 1815, started in the village of Ovid a small sheet entitled the Seneca Patriot. The office of publication was located on Seneca Street, in the upper story of a building on whose site the engine-house now stands. At the close of a single volume, Mr. Lewis changed the name of his paper to The Ovid Gazette, and when Elisha Williams secured the removal of the County seat to Waterloo, Lewis removed hither with his press in May, 1817, and continued the issue of his paper as The Waterloo Gazette, which thus became known also as the first paper published in that village. A partial file of these papers is preserved in the rooms of the Historical Society at Waterloo. The oldest copy is Vol. I., No. 6. It is printed upon coarse paper, and is simply plain in execution. Its terms were: Delivered, S2.00 a year; at office, $1.75; club rates, S1.50, and deductions made to post-riders. Herein John Goodwin informs the public that he has added another boat to his ferry, which will enable him to keep one on each side of the Lake Seneca. William Thompson, Esq., gives an order of sale at vendue of a part of the real estate of Thomas W. Roosevelt, of Junius. Lewis Birdsall, then sheriff, offers for sale his tavern-stand near the turnpike gate in Junius. John Watkins gives notice for debtors to settle under penalty of a positive prosecution, and a lover of beer enters his protest against adulterating his favorite beverage with Indian cockle. Postmasters Jesse Clark, of Waterloo, and Abijah Mann, Jr., of Seneca Falls, advertise lists of letters, and President James Monroe is announced as upon a visit in Connecticut to the gun-factory of Eli Whitney, Esq.

The following information is an attempt to provide details into not only the history of Waterloo New York newspapers, but also the sources available online and offline for the genealogist and historian to access the newspapers, or transcriptions therefrom. Newspapers remain a vital source of material for genealogists. They often provide vivid insight into the lives of our ancestors unlike other factual records.

There is a typewritten manuscript found at Brigham Young University in which contains extractions of the marriages and deaths from miscellaneous newspapers, for Waterloo, Seneca Falls, Ovid, Trumansburg and Geneva, 1807-1908. Written by Crystal W. Fegley, Provo, Utah: Brigham Young University, 1970. Microreproduction of typescript (71 p.), written in 1969. This film can be loaned from the Family History Center. Film Num. 833158. It is not known which specific papers in Ovid were transcribed, and how much overlap there may be with a similar manuscript written by Mary S. Jackson and Edward F. Jackson: Marriage and death notices from Seneca County, New York newspapers, 1817-1885, and Jesse Howell Finch: Vital records from the Ovid bee.

Waterloo Gazette, Volume 1817-1824

When Elisha Williams secured the removal of the County seat to Waterloo, Lewis removed hither with his press in May, 1817, and continued the issue of his paper, The Ovid Gazette, as The Waterloo Gazette, which thus became known also as the first paper published in that village. Lewis soon disposed of the Gazette to Hiram Leavenworth, by whom its publication was continued until in 1818, when John McLean, Jr., who had been appointed Judge of this County by the Governor and Council, associated with Mr. Leavenworth in editing and publishing the sheet. In 1821 McLean retired, and the former proprietor continued once more the publication as its sole owner. Leavenworth kept his small sheet well filled with decided expressions of political views of the old Federal stamp under the first alias – Clintonian. The office was situated in a small building just west of the old Eagle Tavern. A front room was occupied as the law-office of Elisha D. Whittlesey. The back room, in size about fourteen by eighteen feet, was press-room, type-room, and editor’s sanctum. Party spirit ran high, and one night the press was rifled of its bed-plate, and, with a form of type, thrown into the river. The issues were delayed for a few weeks, but that was a small matter at that date. The Gazette was discontinued in 1822 when the Waterloo Enunciator began publication.

The Waterloo Observer first made its appearance in 1824, published and edited by Charles Sentell, and has been regularly issued, without a continued change of name, under different proprietors and editors, until the present time.1 It has adhered to the same principles advocated in its very first number, and, through all changes in ownership, has never swerved from the advocacy of Democratic principles. We know of no existing copies of this newspaper.

The Seneca Farmer and Waterloo Advertiser, 1825-1831

From 1826 to 1829, the editor chronicles many events of a local character, gives the public the latest developments upon and against Masonry, and announces a celebration of July 4, 1829, at which an oration was delivered by Ansel Bascom, Esq. The doors of hospitality were thrown open to the old Revolutionary soldiers, for the most important service ever rendered to a free people, and every desirable refreshment through the day bestowed without money and without price.” The Seneca Farmer was published in Waterloo till August 10, 1831, and then its place of publication was changed by Childs to Seneca Falls, and in 1832 united with The Seneca Falls Journal.

The Wasp, 1836-18??

This newspaper appears to have had a short lifespan. We know that the first issue was published by Hyder Ali Bill on 20 Jun 1836, and the second on 4 Sep. 1836. It was advertised as a newspaper that was published “once in a while, as occasion may require at $1.00 per year” It is possible that it continued sporadic publication until 1839 and was eventually succeeded by The Hornet in 1839.

The Hornet, 1839-18??

J. Strickland first published The Hornet on June 22, 1839, and perhaps it replaced the earlier The Wasp publication. It was politically an independent newspaper: “We must have a press conducted in the independent principle, and above and beyond the reach of a faction of party.” It’s motto was “No favor sways us and no fear shall awe.” It was located at 87 Wall Street in Waterloo.

Mr. Pew was succeeded by Henry Vreeland. The partnership of Sentell & Vreeland was of brief duration, and Charles Sentell again became sole publisher, and so continued until 1866, when Edward W. Sentell, his son, assumed its charge. O. C. Cooper was taken into partnership, and the Observer was carried on in an able manner as an exponent of politics and a medium of news.

Waterloo Weekly Observer, 1870-1877

Burton became proprietors, and William H. and John A. Burton editors.  The paper leaned Democratic. In 1876, Wm. H. Burton was the present proprietor, and Mr. James Joyes its editor, the office being located in rooms of the Yeast Factory buildings. Various ephemeral publications have been absorbed from time to time, and the paper was in good repute, with a large circulation, in 1876. From a sheet of twenty small columns, the Observer expanded to a paper of sixty-four. It was published as The Waterloo Observer in 1873.

Seneca County Standard, 1911-1922

N.W. Ayer & Son’s American Newspaper Annual and Directory of 1921 shows this newspaper as having originated in 1911, and in 1921 being published in Waterloo by O. J. Connell. At that time it was a Democratic leaning paper and had a circulation of 880. I believe this paper was assumed by E. D. Clark at some point prior to 1922 and he combined this paper with the Seneca County Reveille and moved it’s publication in 1922 to the village of Seneca Falls where he published it under a new masthead The Seneca Falls Reveille and Seneca County Standard. We do no believe any issues of this newspaper have survived.

Between the Lakes, 1995-Current

Published weekly since 1995 by the Lakes Communications. It’s motto is “The new look between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes.” There are some editions of this newspaper stored as originals at the New York State Library in Albany, New York, but we are uncertain as to the years covered.

 

Footnotes

  1. This fact is in part correct. The paper continued the name of Observer throughout it’s publication, but it changed names over time to either reflect the town, county, or political interest.
