Town of Palermo Deeds
Selinda Babcock and Ambrose Ferris
Oswego County, NY

     Last week, my husband and I went to the Palermo Methodist Church to research my family. We copied down several marriages from the churches records with the permission of the minister. I thought you might like to include them on the Palermo site. 
       I am also including 2 deeds from the Oswego Clerks office for Palermo. Please feel free to also add them to the site if you are interested.  Sincerely, Lee Freeman.
