Possesions of Andrew Doran

with 2 comments

The following items were generously given to me by Bill Estep, descendant of Margaret Doran Brewster.  His family cared for these items and passed them down over the generations.  It is with much appreciation that I accept them and will do my best to preserve them for generations to come.

The utensils would have originally included a knife, but they were commonly lost over time.  The Percussion Cap Pouch held the caps that were used to ignite the gun powder.

  2. This is great! Andrew died in the Civil War. He is my Great great Uncle, brother to John Doran. I have been very lax on the photo album of (GGM Ana Doran). Can not find any local information on this family. Perhaps we could post a lost and found on your website about this album. Never know when someone will see it and have some information on this family. More details later.
