H. Burns was listed in an advertisement that ran from January 3 to April 25, 1855 in The Ashland Union (Ashland, Ashland County, Ohio.) The World In An Uproar! H. Burns Daguerrean Gallery!  The undersigned would respectfully announce to the Public, that he has purchased and Extensive Daguerrean Gallery, lately occupied by F. Kinnaman, of Ashland, Ohio, and is fitting it up in a style unsurpassed for beauty and elegance in this section of the country.  He is also adding to his stock a large camera which will enable him to take pictures from the smallest to the largest size.  He has a large and complete assortment of cases of every possible style and size, and will sell pictures lower than they can be bought elsewhere, and he has no hesitation in saying that he can render as good satisfaction as an operator in this section of country.  Specimens can be seen by calling at the rooms.  Pictures taken in cloudy as well as clear weather.  Rooms over the store of J. R. Squire.  Don’t mistake the place.      H. Burns, Ashland, Ohio.

H. Burns and Frederick Kinnaman are not listed in other photographic directories. A Fred Kinnaman is listed in Ohio Photographers 1839-1900 by Diane VanSkiver Gagel in Findlay in 1866, 1870-76 and in Carey 1878-1879, and a F. & C. F. Kinnaman in Upper Sandusky in 1878-79 but there is not proof that they are the same person at this time.
