1842                Rooms on Seneca Street, nearly opposite Field’s Mansion House, Geneva,                                       New York.

Jackson of the firm Wight and Jackson were recorded in an announcement and one advertisement.  The announcement appeared on May 31, 1842 in the Geneva Courier (Geneva, New York).  Daguerreotype Portraits.—We would refer our readers to an advertisement in another column, by Messrs. Wight and Jackson, who have recently opened their rooms, nearly opposite Field’s mansion House. Seneca street, where they propose to take Daguerreotype likenesses.  Their terms are very moderate; and, from the specimens we have seen, should think their materials are admirably prepared, as the execution, if we may use the term, seems perfect.  We would therefore call the attention of all who may wish their miniatures, to the above advertisement.

The advertisement ran from May 31 to July 19, 1842 in the same newspaper.  Daguerreotype Miniature Portraits, taken by the above process, from 8 o’clock A. M. to 5 P. M., with the latest improvements, and in a style that cannot fail to give satisfaction.  Landscapes, views of private residences, public buildings, miniature copies of portraits, paintings, statuary, engravings, &c., executed to order.

The public are invited to call and examine specimens at Wight’s Painting Rooms, nearly opposite Field’s Mansion House.  Instruction given in the above Art, and apparatus furnished.  Wight & Jackson.  Geneva, May 30, 1842.

Jackson is not recorded in other photographic directories as being active in Geneva, New York in  1842.  Wight is also not listed in other photographic directories or in The New York Historical Society’s Dictionary of Artist in America 1584-1860.
