George W. Schuyler

George W. Schuyler was recorded in one advertisement that appeared on April 25, 1849 in the Ithaca Journal and Advertiser (Ithaca, New York).  Daguerrian,—A large assortment of Scovill’s and French Plates, of the best qualities, assorted cases, Preservers, Mattings, extra glass, quickstuff, chlorides of gold, and gold saucers, rough and prepared cotton, etc. etc. at New York retail prices.  G. W. Schuyler, No. 42 Owego-st., Ithaca.

George W. Schuyler is not listed in other photographic directories.  Craig’s Daguerreian Registry does record a Schuyler in the partnership of Johnson & Schuyler in Ithaca, New York in 1849.  In my opinion they are not the same person, nor are Johnson & Schuyler daguerreian artists.  See Johnson & Schuyler post.
