Orville M Remington



Photographer:
Coleman & Remington
Hoppin Homestead Building
Providence R. I.

Orville M. Remington (1839 - 1894) is shown as Photographer in City Directories from 1850 through 1882, when he became a newspaper editor and a short service as an insurance salesman for Aetna Life.

Around 1863 he had a short service in the Civil War reaching the rank of Second Sergeant apparently never leaving his home of Providence, Rhode Island.

There could be cabinet cards credited to Remington as early as 1850 and up to 1868 when he joined with W. W. Coleman. City Directory entries indicate he and Coleman were apparently partners from 1868 to 1883.

After 1883 Remington apparently gave up the photography business.
