Strasbourg, Alsace>Princeton, Kentucky

In looking through the Ancestry.com new databases, I happened across a 
Sinclair with an interesting path of residence: birth in Strasbourg, France 
in 1903; to USA in 1913; lifetime settlement in Princeton, Kentucky.  It 
looks like he went by "Singler", but the headstone notes show the link to 
Sinclair. Not sure if anyone is likely to connect to this gentleman, but I 
don't suppose there were a great number of Sinclairs inAlsace in 1903, so the 
recognition factor could be immediate.
