George Eichler (1839 - )
It will be difficult to date photographs from George Eichler of New York. He appears to have had the single profession, working and living at the same address his entire career. Documentation is found to show him working and living at 13 Avenue A, in New York City, from 1870 through 1886.

Although his birth date and place, Mar 1839 in Hesse-Darmstadt / Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany, seem fairly certain, his death date remains cloudy. There were four other people by that name living in and around New York about the same time, a baker and a broker, a tailor and a plumber.

Photographer George Eichler has not been found in the 1900 US Census.
