W. P. Follansbee - circa 1865

I have a small silver pitcher. On the bottom is scratched W. P. Follansbe (I believe he ran out of room for the second e ) July 18th 1865 Jackson Misp.

The pitcher was manufactured by Bancroft, Redfield & Rice, New-York. I take it to be a cream pitcher.

It was presented to my great-grandfather's step-mother in Dany, Colorado the year of the US centennial and Colorado statehood, 1876.

I take it W.P. was a Mr. Follansbee and likely of Northern persuasion - or not. Any information would be most welcome. Especially if anything is known of his years in Colorado. He may have been sweet on the Widow Badger, at least I like to think so. The truth would be so much more interesting.
