  • Announcement in the Weekly News & Democrat (Auburn NY), 18 Jan 1883,
    An Old Firm Dissolved
    The dissolution of the firm of Hyde & Bettys, one of the oldest in the jewelry trade in Auburn, is announced to-day. This old and reliable house has been one of the landmarks of the city in a business view. The firm, Messrs. James Hyde and John Y. Bettys, have been associated together for nearly a quarter of a century, and by their application to business have built an establishment to be proud of, one of the leading stores of the street. Mr. Hyde now retires, leaving Mr. Bettys to continue the prosperous business, at the old location in the Stewart Block. Mr. Bettys is a gentleman with whom it is a pleasure to deal, and the very many friends of the old firm wish him continued success in the future.

John married Caroline Melintha Akin in 1869 in Auburn NY. (Caroline Melintha Akin was born on 8 Mar 1847 in Auburn NY.)
