My Great Grandfather John Simpson is reported to have had a family of wife
and several children in, or about, Moscow Idaho. He died of exposure circa
1898 after a blizzard rescue gold prospecting at a local mountain.
John from Northern Ireland was a Civil War veteran from 1862, on the Union
side, initially in the fighting ranks then the commissariat.
Any help would be appreciated in tracing the family.
All the best
I've "rescued" an old photograph of Mrs. M. J. LATT of Moscow, ID which was
taken at the D. W. Swain Studio though I don't know where the studio was
located. The photograph appears to have been taken in the early 1900's with
Mrs. LATT likely in her 20's or 30's at the time. In addition, someone has
also written "bust" on the back of the photograph suggesting an order for
another photograph of head and shoulders. Someone has also written Palouse,
WA on the back of the photograph. I'm hoping to locate someone from this
family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of her family.
If you are a member of this LATT Family, or you know someone who might be,
please contact me.
