Book Synopsis
Port Norris is located along the beginnings of the Maurice River and bordered by the Delaware Bay. In 1883, there were 885 people who called, Port Norris, their home. This book contains information provided from newspapers of the day published in Bridgeton, New Jersey. People called “local correspondents” would write down the “happenings” in the town then send it to the papers to publish. These correspondents would go by nicknames or just an initial located at the end of the day’s story. These practices of correspondents sending information into the papers was “hit and miss” until about 1885 when articles began appearing on a weekly basis. Hopefully, this will give us a glimpse of what life was like in our small village many years ago.
