Unfortunately an address was not provided in the report for Battle & Hadley, J. M. Petch, or S. Ward and additional information is unavailable at this time.  Craig’s Daguerreian Registry list a Sylvanus Ward in Westfield, New York in 1850-1851.  It’s possible that they are the same person, based on the activity dates and that Westfield is in Chautauqua County.
