Deaths in Cohoes, NY Newspaper - 1908-1909

Newspaper:  Cohoes Republican 
Date of Issue:  July 15, 1909
Date Range of Deaths:  July 2, 1908 to July 13, 1909 
Deceased Persons:  525 
Microfilm Source:  New York State Library, Albany, NY

During the time period of my research, around July 16 of each year the Cohoes Republican newspaper published a list of people from Cohoes who had died in the previous 12 months.  It is important to note that not all of the people listed actually died in the City of Cohoes (Albany County).  They may have been formerly from Cohoes, in which case the Cohoes City Clerk will not have a death record for them.  For instance, people may have taken ill and died in a hospital in Troy, NY (Rensselaer County) which is just across the Hudson River from Cohoes.  Another possibility is that an elderly person may have moved in with a relative in another community shortly before dying, but was still reported in the Cohoes newspaper where they had previously lived. 

I have done my best to accurately transcribe the list.  However, due to the quality of the newspaper and/or microfilm, errors are possible.  Where a ? appears, letters were unreadable.  Readers are encouraged to check the source document for themselves.  It is my hope that the list below will help you in your search for your ancestors.

Finding a Name on This Webpage


Use the web browser's Find feature (Edit/Find or Ctrl-f) which will find exactly what you ask for.  I suggest you search for the surname or given name only, because a search for Joan Decker will not find anything if she is listed with a middle initial.  With many names, there can be spelling variations.  Find will only search for the spelling you ask it to locate.  If there is a part of the name which usually doesn't vary, Find is useful because it will search for just a part of a word.  -- Cliff Lamere

Published: 1892-1920

Frequency: Daily

Call number: NY 42 Cohoes 93-31661

1892:7:15-1909:12:23 means 1892 Jul 15 to 1909 Dec 23.  There are three date ranges for which the newspaper is available today, a total of over 100 microfilms according to the state librarian who checked for me.  The only microfilm box he looked at contained 5 months of newspapers.  Newspapers outside the date ranges have not been microfilmed by the NYS Library and probably those issues no longer exist.  Neither do the original newspapers which are routinely discarded by the library after the microfilm is received.  Some issues within a date range may also be missing.
