Outley & Denison are recorded in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry under Outley, John J. as Dennison (A. C.). A more accurate date on the advertisement is October 3, probably 1851. We also learn he was active prior to October 3 date in the partnership of Wood & Outley, this is possibly Gardner Wood based on entry dates in Craig’s Daguerreian Registry.
