Thanks for all that, Larry. I have read a lot on all of these people. I've always felt so badly for Gen. St. Clair. He tried to deal fairly with the indians, saved a lot of fighting between them. He lost all of his money by forwarding all of his money to Westmorland soldiers for supplies etc, then couldn't get the govet. to pay him back. Years later his family got paid.
Just days after he died in the carriage accident, his wife died too.
Before I forget it, you wrote that Elizabeth, wife of Samuel Sinclair,Jr.was the daughter of Robert McKee, "founder" of McKpt. and of course, the founder
was John McKee, wife Sally Reddick.
I have an article about Saml.Sinclair Sr. coming to McKpt, from Kentucky, I think it was. He built his home, with no mention of a wife, but saying he had only one child, Saml. Jr. You say Sr's. wife was Jane St. Clair, sister of James St. Clair. I have never known that. Do we know James was a bro. of Arthur St. Clair?
Don't you wonder about them coming from the south, the other St Clairs from the east, if they are not necessarily bros. but two different families?
Also, you know so much about the Versailles Cemetery. Only Hiram Sinclair buried there with his parents, and not his wife, nor any of the other Sinclair children?? Wonder who Julia Powers was. David might have been son of old David but his
wife was not Margrate.
I've told you, I think, in 1929, a Memorial service was held in Greensburg for Gen. St. Clair, St.Cair Cemetery and my gr.father, Sgt. Saml McKee and his bro., Capt. Robert McKee, who died on his fine farm near Cabin Hill. Watch out for Rose Fountain Hollow, will you, in Hempfield, Twp.? Good Night
