William Henry Abbott
(1838 - 1898)

There were several photographers named Abbott in the cabinet card era. The one who worked in Little Falls, NY was William Henry Abbott. 
He started in about 1859 in Buffalo, NY but soon moved to Little Falls, NY, and remained there until his death in 1898. In Little Falls, NY, he engaged in two partnerships, first with Mr. Gavin and then with Fletcher W Law in the 1870s and those photos had the "Abbott & Law" stamp on back.  The "W H Abbott" stamps (as seen on htis photo) were the earlier 1960 circa before he merged with Law.
