William D. Beemus is recorded in the Franklin Gazette (Fort Covington, New York) on June 11, 1853.
Mr. Wm. D. Beemus, a Daguerrean Artist, has taken rooms in Knapp’s Block, where he will remain for a short time. We have seen some of his specimens and call them first rate. Give him a call.
Beemus has not been recorded in other photographic directories or newspaper I have been able to reference to date.
