I want to add that I have records that a 45 year old Christopher Gist, a 22 year old George Washington and 15 year old Jacob Myers, all surveyor's for the Ohio Company, visited Queen Alliquippa Christmas Eve 1753 in Queenalliquippas town now called McKeesport.I must point out that some Historians will say it was as late as 28 of December 1753. In any event, Christopher Gist's grandmother is Edith Cromwell.Edith Cromwell is Oliver Cromwell's granddaughter. Again some Historians will say she is the granddaughter of Oliver Cromwell's brother.Oliver Cromwell is the Lord Protector of England
Christopher Gist's brother is Thomas Gist.Thomas Gist is married to Susan Cockey.Their son is General Mordecai Gist.General Mordecai Gist fought along side of Col Francis Marion and Harry Lighthorse Lee in Charleston SC in the Revolutionary War.Harry Lighthorse Lee is General Robert E Lee's father.Christopher Gist's other brother, William Gist, had a son named William Henry Gist.William Henry Gist was the Governor of South Carolina.He signed the order to fire on Fort Sumter starting the Civil War.
Susan Cockey's nephew John Cockey Owings is in business with Jacob Myers in building the Slate Creek Iron Works in Kentucky.He was give the 5000 acres of land to build the iron works by Patrick Henry.Jacob Myers is by 1790 the largest land owner in Kentucky with over 1 million acres.
Many McKees moved to South Carolina with the Gist family. Harry Lighthorse Lee was the officer in charge during the Whiskey Rebellion in Pittsburgh.
