Transcription Tuesday- Jonas Page

Good Morning bloggers! Welcome to this week’s Transcription Tuesday! This week in the ledger is a page addressed to Jonas Page. According to the Early History of Dunwhich Township 1790-1903,  an assessment roll of the Village of Tyrconnell in 1858 states Mr. Page had owned 2 lots (most lots in the time period were 1/5 to ¼ of an acre in size). Jonas Page also may have contributed to the Methodist community.  Many circuit-riders of the Methodist community often lodged at Henry Coyne’s hotel at Coyne’s Corner and in the homes surrounding it including Jonas Pages home.

*If you have more information on Jonas Page please feel free to contact us here at the Backus-Page House. Have a good week and don’t forget to tune in next week as we look at a page in the ledger addressed to James Blackwood.
