In 1879 the Brockport Republic newspaper ran a series of articles commemorating the early settlers of Sweden, Brockport, and Clarkson. Stanley Soules was a retiree who made an avocation of local history and in the 1980s transcribed these articles from the microfilm of the paper. They cover the early settlement of the town, layout of early Main Street, and much other information. Mr. Soules added a name index at the end of the series.
