W. Anderson

W. Anderson was recorded on October 23, 1847 in The Spirit of Democracy, published in Woodsfield, Ohio. He has taken rooms at John Steed’s and is prepared to execute daguerreotype likenesses in a superior style, either colored or in mezzotint. They will find Mr. Anderson not only skillful, but urbane, and prepossessing in his manners; placing every visitor at his ease, and insuring confidence and comfort in the sitting.

It is unknown how long Anderson spent in Woodsfield.  Both Craig’s Daguerreian Registry and  Ohio Photographers 1839-1900 list William Anderson, III in Dayton, Ohio from 1850-1857.  Ohio Photographers also list a W. Anderson in Dayton in 1853.  It is unknown if they are the same person or possibly three different daguerreotypist.
