McKee Sinclair Myers of McKeesport

I am going through cemetery records at the Versailles Cemetery in McKeesport. Hiram B Sinclair and his wife Sarah Cunningham. They are both buried in Sec E Lot 35. Hiram B Sinclair was the son of Samuel Sinclair and Elizabeth McKee. Elizabeth was the daughter of Robert McKee.

That family is buried next to Henry Myers family from Baltimore. This is Sec E Lot 34. Records show he was a Wagon Maker from Baltimore who moved his family to Mckeesport around 1847 to complete a government contract to make wagons for the War with Mexico. I have talked to members of this family who have the original government contracts and they confirm that their great grandmother was a Dunseith.

Henry Myers son Thomas Henry Myers married Mary C Dunseith. The Dunseith's are located on Sec C lot 32. The rest of the Sinclair family are buried about 20 ft from the Dunseith's in Sec D Lot 45.

In Congressmen David Crockett's book, he talks about Henry Myers the Wagon Maker from Baltimore. I believe this is the same Henry Myers in Sec E Lot 34 buried next to Hiram B Sinclair in Sec E Lot 35.

I have some other paperwork that the Dunseith's are related to Alexander Lewis Patton and the Patton family of General George Patton and General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. David Crockett's wife was Elizabeth Patton.

The Dunseith Sec C Lot 32 is known as the Thomas Dunseith/ Alexander Lewis lot. They were business partners in making keelboats in Elizabeth PA.
