I know for sure actress Sarah Churchill was visiting the Jerome family in Rochester NY. The best so far, I can pin point them within a few blocks of George Eastman's house.

Then I have the Churchill family of Pittsburgh. Churchill Boro was named after this group. Churchill Road goes through Churchill Boro in Pittsburgh. This group seem to be related to the Churchills of Rochester and the Churchills of Kentucky.

This would be through General George Rogers Clark who was William Clarks brother.

So we have William Clark and then his son Meriwether Lewis Clark Sr married to Abigail Prather Churchill. Then their son Meriwether Lewis Clark JR who named Churchill Downs in Kentucky after his mother.

In the Rochester group, Sarah Churchill was an actress who worked with Leslie Howard and David O Selznick. David's father Louis Selznick worked for Warner Brothers Studio's in Pittsburgh. They worked out of the old Bakewell building in Pittsburgh owned by Benjamin Bakewell. Although by 1922, everyone moved to Burbank California.

The Selznick Foundation is now located at the George Eastman House in Rochester NY.

Shall I go into the Backwells of Pittsburgh to show a real possibility that the Churchills of Rochester could very well be related to the Churchills of Pittsburgh and Kentucky?

The Bakewells are very well recorded to be connected to the Clarks of Kentucky. They were also into glass operations in Pittsburgh with a fellow named General James O'Hara of O'Hara Township in Pittsburgh. Like General George Rogers Clark, General James O'Hara was a General under George Washington and was assigned to protect the Pittsburgh area. It's the people who claim DAR membership by these to Generals that really tell me that all three Churchill families are one in the same.
