I am not sure if you know about Hunter Tim Murphy and his boss General Daniel Morgan of the Battle of Saratoga.
General Morgan was in business with the Burwell family at Millwood and operated the Morgan/Burwell Mill. The Burwell/Carter family of King Carter were very close relatives of General Robert E Lee. The Murphys would also have a close connection to Catholic Bishop Wayland the Bishop of Richmond VA.
They would even be connected to the Spotswoods. I believe the Spotswood Hotal is also in Richmond.
Hunter Tim Murphy's friend, Hunter John Myers, was depicded in John Esten Cooke's book The Life of Hunter John Myers. Hunter John Myers' daughter Sally attended Catholic Girls school owned by John Esten Cookes greatfather who was related to Robert E Lee's wife. Bishop Wayland was the head master to that school named Lindan Hall in Martinsburg WV.
John Esten Cooke was CSA General Jeb Stuart's aide and is buried with the Morgan family next to Gov Edmund Jennings Randolph at the Old Chapel in Millwood VA. The Spotswood and Neville families are on the other side about 50 ft away. Edmund Jenning Randolph was Thomas Jefferson's cousin.
This leads to Hunter Robert Stuart.
I believe the Myers, Murphy and Stuart families are all related and have been more or less related for 200 years. According to an obituary, they might also have family in Ireland.
My family lived in Pittsburgh. General Morgan's daughter Nancy married Presley Neville of Pittsburgh. They are buried at Alleghey Cemetery not far from Reed Washington. Col Presley Neville was General Lafayette's aide and General Lafayette's foster brother, Dr Felix Brunot is buried 100 ft from Reed Washingon married to Elizabeth Crawford.
Reed Washington, from Millwood VA, is both related to George Washington and Meriwether Lewis. My Myers family, who were Pittsburgh boat builders, built the big boat for Meriweather Lewis in Pittsburgh.
