Re: St. Clair -Knox-Wayne-Wedderburn

Not sure where his descendants are, but highway 25 from Maumee to Toledo,
Ohio, and the bridge over the Maumee River there are named in Gen. Wayne's
honor: Anthony Wayne Trail and Anthony Wayne Bridge, respectively. Of course
the lakeat Detriot, just north of there, between Huron and Erie, and the
river betwixt Huron and St. Clair are named for Gen. Arthur, as are
countless, counties, and towns and streets accross the USA. St. Clair, in
spite of his defeat by the Indians, was one of the most famous figures in
Revolutionary history.
