A. O. Howard

1851                13 & 15 Arcade Building, Watertown, New York.

A.  O. Howard was recorded in an announcement that ran on June 5, 1851 in The New York Reformer (Watertown, New York).  A. O. Howard.—It becomes our painful duty to record the sudden death of this estimable young man.  He was subject to fits from an injury upon the head received in his youth, and while riding in a buggy near Chaumont, where he had gone on business, he was attacked with a fit, fell from the buggy, and in falling broke his neck, causing instant death.  He had been engaged through the winter by C. P. Westcott, in his Daguerrean Gallery, in which business he was an expert operator.  He was about establishing himself in business, when he was overtaken by death in this sudden and unexpected manner.  His mild disposition, agreeable society and moral worth, will cause many friends and associates to morn his early death.

A O. Howard is not listed in other photographic directories.
