Event table notes

Event data
Name: New York State Chess Association - General Tourney
Place: Buffalo
Start date: 14 Aug. 1894
End date: 17 Aug. 1894
 
Notes:
Di Felice has 'Frere, Thomas' at this event; Gaige has 'Frere'. However, it was Walter Frère, as indicated by Hillyer, p.189. Gaige and Di Felice give dates 15-18 Aug. 1894. However, as these dates match those given for the Rice Trophy Competition (see my notes for that event), and those dates appear to have been shifted by one day, I have assumed that the true dates for this tournament were also 14-17 Aug. 1894.
