About Bayonne Herald and Greenville Register

The Bayonne Herald and Greenville Register, was a weekly newspaper in early Bayonne. Locally known as The Herald, it was published every Saturday Morning. It was big on political news of the day. The Herald had no obituary section as we know it today, but carried stories on selected deaths in the city. By the paper's own account there were an average of 90 local deaths per month, but it only published about 10 percent of them. The size of the stories ranged from very large for prominent persons to 3 lines for a local citizen killed on the rail. You can visit or contact the Bayonne Free Public Library and Cultural Center to locate the original.
