Milestones:

Notes: It is unclear if this is the person referred to in the National Academy of Design exhibition records.  There does not seem to be a RM Atkinson, however we believe it may be WM Atkinson for William Atkinson, architect ; The architect wrote a book Views of picturesque cottages : with plans. selected from a collection of drawings taken in different parts of England (1805) which closely echos what was shown in the exhibition of 1843 ;  However, that the book gives a New York address associated with the artist might indicate it is a real person, perhaps a brother of the architect? ;
