52 Ancestors – Week 17 – At Worship

You read here time and again how much I love the New York Historic Newspapers website.

It was here in the Plattsburgh Sentinel I found these two clips about my 3X great-grandfather Beverly Beardsley, from what I can discern they were Methodist but whatever religion he went to revivals and he must of been involved.

This first bit is from 1888 and it was in the town notes for Upper Jay.image_681x474_from_1989,7994_to_3422,8992

Next is from April 1901 and is the ramblings of someone sharing memories of their time in the North Country.

Newspapers offer us all kinds of clues into our ancestors lives.
