War Society Formed
We observe with pleasure that a “Society for promoting the success of the War against Great Britain,” has been instituted in the capital of Virginia and that WILLIAM MARSHALL, esq., a federalist, and a brother of the Chief Justice of the United States, acts as its chairman. The northern factionalists will deem this treason, against them and their British allies. —Baltimore American.
COMMENT: William Marshall (1765-1845) was the brother of John Marshall, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (1755-1835). The point here (as made by an anti-Federalist paper in Baltimore) is that the Federalist-dominated States in New England, often considered by Republicans to be traitors, would not appreciate a Federalist heading a patriotic society.

COMMENT: George Pomeroy (1779-1870) was a druggist — whose wares were broader than that of modern pharmacies — who came to Cooperstown in 1801 and in 1804 married Ann Cooper Pomeroy (1784-1870), daughter of William Cooper, who had built for them the stone Pomeroy Place at the corner of Main and River Streets. Owing, apparently, to the financial “problems” of a banker son, George Quartus Pomeroy (1815-1878) they ended their lives in poverty and spent their last years with their nephew George Pomeroy Keese (1828-1910) at Edgewater. A granddaughter, Constance Fenimore Woolson (1840-1894) was a famous writer.
