Parker (first name unknown) was recorded in one announcement that appeared on April 29, 1847 in the New Hampshire Sentinel (Keene, New Hampshire).  Daguerreotypes.—Those who desire to have their likenesses transferred with “frightful accuracy” to a polished metallic plate, have ample room to choose.  There are at least three good Daguerreotypist now in town who have contracted with their principal agent, the Sun, for the right kind of light and just enough of it.  Messrs. Stone in Gerould’s block—Parker in Elliot’s buildings and Wilsons, a few doors north of the Cheshire House, are all ready to wait upon their customers, and will give them as good pictures as they will be able to get in the cities.

Those who wish a portrait by a very superior artist, should call upon Mr. Mason, portrait painter, at his rooms at the Cheshire House, where he will be happy to show some fine specimens of the art.

Parker is not recorded in other photographic directories. Craig’s Daguerreian Registry does record John O. Parker in Manchester New Hampshire in 1856, at this point in time its unknown if they are the same person.
