Re: Sinclair Oil Company

Okay, egg on my face!  A descendant of the NC Sinclairs told me that brothers of one of her ancestors founded the Sinclair Oil Company in Texas.  Now I can't find my notes, etc. to verify what she told me, or the names of the men involved.  Maybe this family just started their own "legend."
Sorry for the mis-information.

What is your documentation for the Sinclair Oil Company NC and Texas roots?
You may have two oil companies confused???  THE Sinclair Oil Company
family came to Ohio directly from Ireland and to my knowledge never were in
NC or Texas.  I would be interested in any new information you may have

Sinclair Oil Company was started by Sinclairs from a North Carolina branch
who migrated to Texas.

    I came across a note to myself:
    How did Sinclairsville, NY get its name?  What line of the family was
    How were the Sinclairs involved with the Sinclair Oil Company?
