1853 Address Unknown, Independence, Missouri.
J. H. Twyman was mentioned in an advertisement that appeared on December 10, 1853 in the Occidental Messenger (Independence, Missouri). Look Now For Fine Daguerreotypes!! Mr. Howell would respectfully call the attention of the ladies and gentlemen of Independence and vicinity, to the fact that he has just fitted up his room in good style, so that he is able to furnish those wishing it, A Splendid Likeness. As he is going away for a few weeks, he will leave Mr. J. H. Twyman in charge of his rooms, to operate during his absence. Mr. Twyman is a splendid operator—in fact to do him justice he is surpassed by none in the Art. I therefore do not at all hesitate in recommending him to the people as an Artist. As he has been with J. H. Fitzgibbon of St. Louis, he has all the new styles of operating, and all the late improvements that are now known in the business.
I will also say to the people, that there are at my room a splendid assortment of cases, which he will [sell] on moderate terms. Oct 29th, 1853. W. B. Howell.
J. H. Twyman is not recorded in other photographic directories.
