Robert T.

T. Price, daguerrean artist, Elizabethtown, N. J., or city reference of , Alphonso Lettellier 481 Broadway, Jewelry store.

Craig’s Daguerreian Registry list an R. T. Price active in 1850-1851 in Elizabethtown and again in 1859 and suggest that they are the same person.  According to Gary Saratzky’s website  gary.saretsky.com/photohistory/njphotographers.html it is possible to connect the R. T. Price, Robert T. Price & Robert T. Price & son to suggest that he possibly was active  from 1850 to 1866.
