GRANTS PASS First American Title Insurance Co. of Oregon announced its purchase of Josephine-Crater Title Cos. Inc.

Our companies have a 34 year history with each other as underwriter and agent, and this change will simply seem like the culmination of a very long engagement, said Jim DeCourcey, president of Josephine-Crater Title.

We are delighted to bring our direct operations to Southern Oregon, said Parker Kennedy, president of First American.

Josephine-Crater Title began with Josephine Title Co. in Grants Pass in 1956, and expanded to include Josephine and Jackson counties in 1959, with the creation of Crater Title Insurance Co.

DeCourceys father, James Monroe DeCourcey, founded the companies, which have expanded from three to more than 100 employees.

In 1996, Ocean Title Co. in Curry County became a part of the corporation.

We have built and maintained our market position by taking good care of our local customers, and by being good corporate citizens in our community of Southern Oregon, DeCourcey said. First American shares the values and principles that have made us successful, leading their markets throughout the Northwest.

Our ability to bring Southern Oregon the best possible service will be strengthened by the change.
