The last marriage reads:

At Onondaga Hollow (now Syracuse, New York), Mr. Sier Patterson to Miss Precious Little, all of that town. Mr. P. has made up his mind to enjoy Precious Little during the remainder of his life. (22 August 1835, page 3).

Notice that this Dedham, Massachusetts newspaper published announcements of marriages from a wide area. Barnstable, Cambridge, Dorchester, and Salem Massachusetts - and as far away as Onondaga Hollow - Syracuse, New York.
