J H Abbott began his professional career as a printer and operating the Muskingum Printing Co. He then opened a business called the “Elite Gallery” and published the “Sunday Morning Star”.

Documents show that from 1893 through 1896, he called his business “Zanesville Art Company”.

Abbott moves to Harvey, IL, about 1901 and goes back into the printing business. He never returns to photography.
