Waugh, Frederick Judd (1861-1940) View 3 Items

Williamson, Samuel
No information seems to be available on the life of Samuel Williamson except a few facts taken from advertisements in Philadelphia newspapers. In 1794, Williamson advertised at 13 North Second Street. Three years later he formed a partnership with Samuel Richards, Jr., and the firm of Richards & Williamson continued until 1800. At this time, Williamson went back into business by himself at 118 South Front Street and advertised his trade at this address until 1813, when his advertisements ceased to appear.
