That's the straight-laced side of the family. My dad's is a lot more fun; there's moonshine, a couple of train robbers, a bank robbery, and a group of brothers named Jesse, James and Frank ...

My second great-grandfather was an inventor and I have copies of one of his parents, a swiveling machine gun mount to go in an airplane. He was a cousin to Orville and Wilbur Wright and family rumor has it that most of their ideas for the airplane came from him.

I have to look into this. I believe a relative patented a devise used in shipbuilding but I haven't researched it.

Did Your Ancestor Get a Patent?

Posted: 06 Jul 2019 10:52 AM PDT

Chances are that I’m not going to patent what I jokingly referred to as a “grass height detector” on my Facebook page. But there is a chance that your relative developed an actual invention and received a patent for it. If the product didn’t make your relative’s life, there may have been no mention of it to later family members.

US patent applications can be searched on Google Patents patents.google.com . Older applications may give your ancestor’s state and county of residence and indicate whether or not the applicant was a United States citizen. There may be grass height detectors listed, but none of them are mine.
