Re: McKeesport, Pa area
It looks like you must be a member to log on.McKeesport has a long history with General Harry Lighthorse Lee using the area for his Headquarters during the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794. The main location that most historians agree on is where the Old Tube Works stood.General Lee brought with him Col Alexander Hamilton and his aid Captain Meriwether Lewis. florida workers compensation lawyer . It was Col Alexander Hamilton’s idea for the Whiskey Tax so let him enforce it.In any event, Meriwether Lewis stayed behind and somehow founded the Hutchison family of Lewis Hutchison who was a wealthy shipper of canned and preserved food supplies. His daughter Ellen Hutchison married Pittsburgh lawyer Edwin M Stanton the Secretary of War under Abraham Lincoln.Harry Lighthorse Lee’s son was of course General Robert E Lee.This is where things get very fuzzy on who is related to whom in Mckeesport and the cemetery they call Versailles.
