The Last in the Line

by Karen J Mossman

I love true stories and decided I would do an impromptu live recording on my You Tube channel. It tells the story of whether my son is the last in the line of the Mossman name. Some years ago I researched the name to find out if this was true and came across a couple of interesting coincidences.

Below are the photographs that accompany the video.

James Mossman - b 1837

Is Ian the only Mossman linked to James? No, it turned out there was a very big family in Australia and the one I spoke to was also called Ian. All the details are on YouTube.

Have you found out anything from your own family that surprised you? I’d love to know.
