DEATH.

May 5, on St. Margaret's Bank, Rochester, Mr. T. Hider, formerly landlord of the "Nag's Head."

 

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

All emails are answered.
