1850 Business Directory

Source:  "The New York Mercantile Union Business Directory, 1850-1," S. French, L. C. & H. L. Pratt, 1850.  This source lists the businesses by type, then county, so there may very well be many businessmen missing, as I had to peruse this large volume to develop this list! - Lisa
