1857                Address Unknown, Dunkirk, New York.

O. Monroe was recorded in one announcement that appeared on October 7, 1857 in the Westfield Republican (Westfield, New York).  Agricultural Society Report…Painting &c….

In the Daguerreotype Department, there were several exhibitions deserving of more than a Passing notice from your Committee, but as the scale of premiums have been limited, we are reluctantly compelled to contain ourselves to the following;

Best specimens of Daguerreotypes, called Melainotypes, to No. 162, O. Monroe, Dunkirk;

2d do. No. 158.

The committee would respectfully recommend a premium of the 2d class to. No. 316 G. R. Martin, being four Photographs in oil.

There were on exhibition three Ambrotypes without numbers from Messrs. Palmer, Bartholomew & Co. Westfield, deserving much credit for their perfection and life-like expression of the specimens presented for inspection.

O. Monroe is recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry as being active in Dunkirk and Pomfret, New York in 1859.
