A. Andrews

On September 20, 1853 A. Andrews advertises in the Penn Yan Democrat, Penn-Yan, New York.  Offering his daguerreotype apparatus for sale.  The subscriber having tried daguerreotyping to his heart contented, or rather discontented, has returned to his first love. “portrait painting, and now wishes to sell out his whole apparatus.  He has on hand a full and complete apparatus, chemicals, a snug little outfit of Plates, Cases, Lockets, &c. all of which he will sell upon the most reasonable terms for Ready Cash

Any one wishing to embark in the Daguerrian business cannot do better than to call on the subscriber at his rooms in Penn Yan, in the old Stewart & Tunnicliff building, up stairs.

There is only one A.  Andrews listed in The New York Historical Society’s Dictionary of Artists In America 1564-1860.  It is Ambrose Andrews, but there is no proof at this time that they are the same person.
