J. G. French was recorded in an advertisement that ran from June 19 to July 10, 1849 in the St. Lawrence Republican (Ogdensburgh, New York).  Daguerreotypes.  J. G. French would inform the citizens of Ogdensburgh and adjoining towns, that he has opened a Daguerrian gallery in Mr. Clark’s building, Ford Street, over the store of J. H. Guest, and is prepared to execute Daguerreotype Miniatures in a style which cannot be surpassed.  Having made himself acquainted with the latest improvements in the art, and by the use of a superior Chemical and Gilding which renders the impression permanent, possessing the appearance of real life, warrants satisfaction to all who may favor him with a call; his process being the same as those of the principal cities, and equal in style.  Miniatures neatly set in Lockets, Pins, Rings, Bracelets or Cases.  Ladies and gentlemen are respectfully invited to call and examine specimens, and set for their likenesses by way of experiment, if they choose.

N. B.—Those having pictures taken by the old process, can have them re-taken at a small expense. Rooms open from 7 A. M. to 7 P. M.
