Seeking descendants of John Muir, 1st Lieutenanct, Nauvoo Legion

0 votes
I have in my possession an original document commissioning John Mure, to the rank of 1st Lieutenant, (he was elected Adjutant Comapany C, Infantry 1st Battalion, Nauvoo Legion in 1864), dated 4 May 1868 and signed by Edwin HIggins, Acting Governor, Territory of Utah.  It has the seal of the Territory of Utah on it.  It came into my possession from a cousin who has had it for many years. He described how it came into his possession. It was found under a trap door rolled in oil cloth in an old home in Salt Lake City by his former boss and associate and given to him. He gave it to me because of my interest in family history. I am not seeking any money for this document and will most likely donate to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints unless I am persuaded otherwise by a proven descendant.

There are 892 Muir profiles at Wikitree. You might want to contact some of the ones that could be matches for the one in your question. He spent time in Utah as you know, and could have easily originated in Scotland.
