This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Bouxwiller, Alsace on July 7, 1820. Rey studied lithography in France before joining the Gold Rush to California via Panama in 1852. Settling in San Francisco, he established a lithography business with his brother-in-law Joseph Britton. The firm was one of the earliest and most successful of its kind and continued for several decades printing views of California and other commercial work. The Rey home in San Francisco was a beautiful place overlooking the bay and was a gathering place for artistic society for many years. Many treasured possessions of the Rey family were lost in the fire of 1906. Britton lived with Rey and his wife; their partnership resulted in some of the most notable lithography done in California during the 19th century. Rey died in San Francisco on May 25, 1892. In: Society of Calif. Pioneers.
