notes

*All municipal officers were elected and appointed for one year at a time. Typically, elections took place late in September; officers were sworn in in October; officers served thru the new year until superceded or re-appointed the following September/October.

Common Council minutes also known as "The City Records" were transcribed and printed by Joel Munsell and are the source for this roster. Mostly, the transcribed volumes are available online.
