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.

You may have two oil companies confused??? THE Sinclair Oil
family came to Ohio directly from Ireland and to my knowledge
