Hi Mark, sorry for the delay in getting back to you - been running around
this week. I am actually not familiar with these newspapers. To my mind
Broome, NY is a hamlet around Livingstonville, just off Route 145 and just
down the road from Preston Hollow and in the county of Schoharie. This is a
different locale than Broome County, NY. The Columbia was likely a newspaper
from Middleburg, or thereabouts, I would assume. I am not certain that
Broome would have been large enough in 1818, or even now, to support a
newspaper itself. On the other hand, this could be an obit about someone's
reltive that showed up in a newspaper, God knows where. See that all the
time in the old newspapers.
I couldn't find this newspaper in teh NYS Newspaper archive.
