I am doing research on the Jacob Myers Slate Creek Iron Works in Kentucky and his connection to the Lewis and Clark expedition out of Pittsburgh in 1803.I found a 100 year old reference that one of Jacob Myers' business partners was Paul Skidmore who was Thomas Jefferson's architect.Paul Skidmore was married to Francis M Gwathmey the daughter of Ann Clark.Ann Clark was the sister of William Clark who was the partner to Meriwether Lewis in the Lewis and Clark Expedition out of Pittsburgh.
I also have a reference that Jacob Myers built 7 boats for General George Rogers Clark in Pittsburgh and they were delivered July 21 1780. General Clark was the brother of both William Clark and Ann Clark.
I believe the same Jacob Myers who built the Iron Works in Kentucky was the same Jacob Myers who built the boats for General George Rogers Clark
Lucy Clark, another sister was married to William Croghan.Their son William Croghan Jr was married to Mary Carson O'Hara the daughter of General James O'Hara and Mary Carson of Pittsburgh.Just recently researchers on Lewis and Clark Expedition think the boat was built near James O'Hara house in Pittsburgh.
No one on this thread has said anything about Paul Skidmore since 2004. I was wondering if there were any living relatives of Paul Skidmore of Kentucky.
