You brought it up so there it goes.

A very little known document about CSA Col AC Myers' family is by a Jewish Rabbi in Charliston SC. It's a very interesting document. First they named Ft Myers in Lee County Florida after Col AC Myers a close friend of Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. That document suggest the Myers family came over on Columbus' second voyage with Ponce De Leon.

This checks out with records of Jewish Dr David De Leon who was General Robert E Lee's personal doctor during the Civil War. Lee County in Florida was named after General Robert E Lee.

Col AC Myers was the head of the Allegheny Arsenal in the early 1850's at the exact same time General Sherman then a Major was working at the Allegheny Arrsenal in Pittsburgh. He quit the army and became a banker in San Francisco. This is the time he was writing letters to Col AC Myers.

Now how is that for a coincidence?

Again back to the books by CSA Col John Esten Cooke the second in command to CSA General Jeb Stuart married to Floria Cooke.

The Life of Thomas Jefferson
The Life of Robert E Lee
The Life of Hunter John Myers
The Life of Alexander Spotswood Dandridge.

Col AC Myers son is listed in the book Randolphs of Virginia. Thomas Jefferson is on family line 1. Pochhontas is on family line 8. John T Myers is on family line 6.

Gov Edmund Jennings RANDOLPH is buried 50 ft from writer CSA Col John Esten Cooke at Millwdood VA the home of the Burwell/Morgan mill of General Daniel Morgan of the Battle of Saratoga. General Morgan's daughter is married to a family in Pittsburgh.
