bullet  General Notes:

Oswego Palladium 3-23-1892: "The St. Patrick's Day difficulty between Mrs. Mary Langton and Mrs. Ann Sweetman was resumed this morning. A number of witnesses testified to Mrs. Langton's unseemly behavior in the Fifth ward on Thursday last. She was convicted and the sentence was $15 or thirty-five days."

Oswego Daily Times 9-10-1895: "Charged with Stealing Grapes. Mary Langton was before the recorder this morning charged with stealing grapes. She was arrested on the complaint of Ann Sweetman from whose yard it is alleged she stole the fruit. Upon her plea of not guilty the case was adjourned until Saturday morning to enable both sides to procure witnesses. Both parties live in the back part of the Fifty ward."

Oswego Daily Times 9-14-1895: "In Police Court. Considerable 'Held-Over' Business Occupied the Attention of Recorder Bulger This Morning.
Mary Langton of 199 Erie street, and Ann Sweetman of 118 Erie street, were both before Recorder Bulger this morning, one as complainant and the other as defendant. Mrs. Sweetman claims that Mrs. Langton went into her yard while she was away from home, one week ago, and stole a quantity of grapes. To substantiate her charge she has her two nephews, who were watching the grape vines and who said they saw Mrs. Langton taking the fruit.
Mrs. Langton hired Attorney L.W. Baker and brought forth her daughter, son-in-law and another relative to swear she had not left her yard. There was not enough testimony to satisfy the recorder and the case was adjourned for one week to procure additional witnesses."

The Oswego Daily Times had a For Sale ad for the house and lot at 117 Erie St. "Lot 50x100; $750."
