In Reply to: a new book involving Meriwether Lewis by John Harding Peach of 21351

Thomas Jefferson and Meriwether Lewis had more ties then just wanting to do something about going on a long trip.

The Lousiana Purchased all started when Albert Gallatin saved the Murphy family from the Guillotine by evacuating them to Asylum PA in 1794.

Marie Louise Murphy's daughter Agatha Murphy was the 1/2 sister to King Louis XVI and aunt to King Louis XVII the Child King of France. She was to Marry Catholic Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

Two well recorded visitors to Asylum PA in Bradford County were Prince Father Gallitizen and Bishop Talleyrand the point man for the Lousiana Purchase which from the French side, was called the LaSalle Land Claim.

Marie Lousis Murphy belonged to the Murphy Guiton Duquesne LaSalle families of France. Her daughter was a Bourbon Capet. Capet in German is sometimes speeled Haben.
