The online catalog of the Skinner auction house auction #2699M displays as lot #580 a framed portrait of John Langdon (1722-1782), a merchant of Boston, Massachusetts. He married Mary Greenough March 31, 1778, and a genealogy states they had nine children. It is reported there was a Langdon tomb in the Copp's Hill Burying Ground where both John and Mary are thought to be buried.
On the date of my writing this message, a photo of this portrait is still available online at:
but it may be taken offline soon. In the event it is taken offline, I have downloaded it and will be happy to send a copy freely by email to Langdon & Greenough family researchers. Someone in the families ought to have it, which is why I’m keeping a copy of it and posting about it. It is too good to be missed by the families. It would be a very great shame and injustice were it to be missed by them.

Please email me directly rather than respond to me on this site as I may not see that response.
If it were a portrait of an 18th century Pease gentleman in my line, I’d certainly hope someone would do the same for me. Call it a simple, but appropriate, genealogy good deed.
