Below are links to various documents I've obtained over the
last couple years, which I'm finally getting around to transcribing to put
online. They are organized by the town they are most closely associated with,
or just under the county if they aren't specific to one location. I've got a
ton of these to work through so keep checking back for new additions.

1827 Memorial to Congress by the Delegates of St. Lawrence County asking for actions against the acts of the British Parliament
1904 Statement of the St Lawrence county Farmer's Insurance Company, listing the losses and damages paid to each farmer (complete with farmer's name and value of loss). From this report it looks like at just about any point in time a cow somewhere in St Lawrence county was being struck by lightening.
