Subject:	Re: The Two Commodore Perrys + Arthur Sinclair

I don't know about the rest of the people on this list, but through Sally's
research, I feel like Capt. Arthur Sinclair is becoming a close and
interesting relative.   I must finish The Capt. John Sinclair book.  There
is another Sinclair that has become familiar to us through Penny and other's

   Is there anyone who has information about the British army/navy in
Havanna in 1761?

Just what was going on there on Aug. 1761?  I had an ancestor killed there,
while he was not a Sinclair, 10 of his descendants married St. Clairs.

I'm hoping to stumble upon info on this time period as well...a couple of
Oak Island books refer to the sacking of Havana by the British in 1762 (and
a couple of other dates btw) as a source for the theoretical
"treasure"...It's not immediate/important so I haven't exactly ransacked the
cupboards, but I'd enjoy more info about the time period as well...

	be well,
