Medical Profession
From the "History of Lewis County in the State of New York,"
Franklin B. Hough, 1860, pages 291-2
A county medical society was early formed, under the act of 1806, and was represented at the state society in 1808, by Jonathan Bush, and in 1810 by John Safford. The loss of its records by fire, Oct. 15, 1849, has thrown oblivion over the proceedings of this body. Its seal had for its device an open lancet, and the letters L. C. M. S. in script, entwined. The statute, requiring a copy of the credentials of physicians, to be filed in the clerk's office, has enabled us to prepare the following list. It does not embrace every regularly qualified physician who has resided in the county, as some of the earlier ones, filed their papers in Oneida county, and quite a number of the mroe recent may have neglected this duty, or the papers may have been mislaid or accidentally overlooked. This list will therefore be regarded as positive only so far as it goes.
