It is a difficult as well as a delicate task to recall and relate the records of the many prominent lawyers who have in times past been members of the bar of Niagara county, but who are now either deceased or have removed to other places and there continued and increased their enviable reputation. Sketches of some of them have already been given, but aside from these there have been many others whose records it would be most agreeable to recall. This we cannot do.
