Jacob Cohen

Jacob Cohen was recorded in the June 10, 1850 issue of the New York Daily Tribune (New York, New York).  Destroying Daguerreotypes.—A young man named James H. Tucker, was taken into custody yesterday, charged with having, while intoxicated, entered the premises of Jacob Cohen, of 54 Canal –st. and maliciously destroying about $50 worth of daguerreotypes.  He was held to answer the charge.

Jacob Cohen is not recorded in other photographic directories.  Jacob is not listed as a daguerreotypist in the 1850 New York City Directory, resident section.  John Craig list a James Cohen at 54 Canal Street, New York from 1849-1851.  The question, is Jacob a typo in the June 10, 1850 New York Daily Tribune’s issue or is he something else?
