Emma’s own “John Kerry” sign

Monday, September 27th, 2004

Emma just loves the Kerry/Edwards sign she made Saturday at the headquarters.

She knows the letters are L E 5 4 and E S 5 4 and that it says “John Kerry”.

Making signs for Kerry/Edwards

Saturday, September 25th, 2004

In preparation for Sunday/Monday’s visit to NH by John Edwards, the entire family helped the [Kerry/Edwards](http://blog.johnkerry.com/) campaign headquarters in Manchester make some signs. Tomorrow Wendy is attending a NH campaign meeting and help drive some national campaign staff and/or press around.

Griffin, Trevor and Spencer took most of these photos:

1848 letter from Capt John Bright to brother

Thursday, September 23rd, 2004

Last week I bought an old letter on [Ebay](http://www.ebay.com) from Capt John Bright of Cambridge, MA to his brother in 1848.

[Last year other strangers pointed me](http://nozell.com/blog/index.php?s=gideon+taylor&submit=Search) to an Ebay auction for a [Gideon Taylor/Sarah Burr 1857](http://www.nozell.com/genealogy/gideon-taylor-sarah-burr-family-bible/), I was alerted to the auction by some stranger who suggested that it may be related to my wife’s BRIGHT line.

Seemed like a good deal at $15.

Here are some smaller versions of the scans I made tonight. Drop me some email if you want a copy of each of the 9M files.

The seller was nice enough to include a photo copy of some background info from “U.S. Naval Institute” by Carl C. Cutter (1961), pg 484 has a line from the “Queens of the Western Ocean”, Center line, Ripley Center & Co, 73 South St., Mobile Agents est 1824. (In Boston? NYC?)

Year Vessel Tons Masters
1824 Bg. Susquehanna 207 J. Bright

The column with the “Bg.” is untitled, but the other entries are “Sp.”, “Sch.”, and “Bk.” Some type of ship type? (eg. Schooner)
