About Our Family Research


I have very little information or as yet much interest in my own family. My wife Melissa and therefore my children are related through her father William Mosman to the Washington Pioneering family of James Longmire, who came West as a wagonmaster in 1853 on the Oregon Trail, had 13 children, fought the Indians and recieved a considerable grant of land. My wife has inherited some of that land and a family home that is on the National Register, and that we are currently working to resore. The family of James Longmire has had a yearly reunion we have attended, and there is a considerable book on the family lineage written by one of the relatives.

We have recently inherited a handmade silver porringer, or small bowl that may be quite valuable because it was made and marked by a famous siversmith about the time of the American Revolution. We think it came through my Wife's Grandfather's family that came from Boston, and have found that the value of the silver porringer may be much more if we could trace a monogram that may be the intials of one of my relatives. I have been working for several months to locate the name that I have these clues to find. It has been an interesting and fairly engrosing quest, and I have learned quite a lot about what we don't know about our ancestors.
