I have searched for this artist in all of my records and simply cannot find him.  I do find on the web this notation about the dispersal of his property at his death in New Orleans, Louisiana.  It appears that he traveled up the Mississippi & across the Ohio rivers to spend time painting in Cincinnati. "Court of Probates - Sale by the Register of Wills. - On Thursday the 7th day of November, 1833, at 10 o'clock in the morning, I will expose for sale for the amount of the succession of  the late Adrien Mayers, at the late domicile of the deceased, in Chartres street, between Toulouse and Jefferson streets, the contents of his store, consisting of Pictures, Engravings, sets of China ware, and other fancy articles."  Courrier de la Louisiane, November 4, 1833, p. 3. Nouvelle-Orléans (New Orleans, La.)  Please email, if you know of this artist.  I will be grateful.

  1. I'm an historic social/cultural researcher from Cincinnati. My focus is antebellum Cincinnati. The Pendleton family is a subject I've researched, but not extensively. I was unaware of these wonderful landscapes. The terrain near the city has been a major research of mine...and as photography was still in its infancy, we don't have many, compared to illustrations, drawings and paintings. Thank you for your blog on this subject.
