As I said I am just fishing and fishing from the book The Life of General Lew Wallace by General Lew Wallace. My Myers family is a very distance relative of General Lew Wallace and his grandmother Jones who's uncle was Admiral John Paul Jones.
Midshipman Horatio Gratz Myers served directly under Admrial John Paul Jones. He was the son of Jacob Myers and Miriam Etting. You must know about the Churchill and Myers Iron Works in Kentucky to understand the complete connection.
A good book to read is The Life of Ned Myers by James Fenimore Cooper. The Gratz Brothers were business partners with Jame's father William Cooper the Mayor of Albany NY.
Ned Myers was the god son of Prince Edward and this connects back to the Churchill family of Winston Churchill of Rochester NY.
