Event data
Place: Philadelphia
Start date: 1859
End date: 1859
 
Notes:
The exact year is not known, but it must have been after Hazeltine started conducting the chess column of the New York Clipper (16 Aug. 1856) and before Elson became better known in 1860 or so. I am guessing that these games were played in 1859, which might be in error by 1 year or 2 years.
