Ned Myers

Maybe if you understand my research, you will understand where I am going with this. Prince Frederick Lewis had Lewis relatives move to Pittsburgh in the mid 1700's under an old Oliver Cromwell grant honored by Thomas Lord Fairfax.

They were boat builders at the time of Meriwether Lewis. Ned Myers was the god son of Prince Edward and that fact was recorded by writer James Fenimore Cooper in his book The Life of Ned Myers. We are related to James Fenimore Cooper when my cousin Emma Mae Lewis married Clyde Fenimore. Many people claim a blood relationship to James Fenimore Cooper through Clyde Fenimore.

There was a play written at the end of the Civil War titled Our American Cousins. I believe this surfaced because to the Trent Affair with Edwin M Stanton, William H Seward who's grandson married Anna Myers from Pittsburgh and Queen Victoria.

So I guess there are several issues here. Was Queen Victoria elected Queen of England or was she related to Prince Frederick Lewis thus making her have American Cousins as depected in the play "Our American Cousins"?

Then can we have several unrelated Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin families in and around Pittsburgh.
