I am still working on the relationship of surveyor Samuel Sinclair who married Elizabeth McKee to my Myers family in Mckeesport. According to an obituary, their son HB Sinclair was a pall bearer for my great grandmother's funeral. The Sinclair's are also buried next to the Myers family at Versailles Cemetery in Mckeesport.

There seems to be a connection to Col Morgan Morgan and his son Zackquill Morgan the founder of Morgantown WV.

This connects to Col John Gibson the commander of Ft Pitt who was a close friend of Zackquill Morgan. Col John Gibson's sister was married to Chief John Logans Sister. Chief John Logans family was from Lewisburg PA just above Harrisburg. They moved to the Pittsburgh area sometime around 1770's.

Col Morgan Morgan was from Frederick County VA now Winchester VA/Inwood WV and the Myers family was from Frederick County MD which has not changed. I understand Samuel Sinclair's family was also from Frederick County MD and or Baltimore MD.

I guess I am wondering how this might connect to the McKee family of McKeesport if at all.
