What a fascinating story about the General's daughter. I'm sure your readers will want to know more about this rumbustious girl who, having failed to marry Brandt, the son of the Six Nation's Chief of that name (because of her father's objections) eventually married a Samuel Robb in the Ligonier Valley, Pennsylvania. It is not known if they had any children.

She died on the 27th May, 1840 aged 68 years.

Apart from Louisa who was born in 1772, the General had several other children:
  • John Murray who was born in 1762 married Jane Parker
  • Daniel who was born in 1764 (who named one of his daughters after his sister, Louisa). He marrried Rachel, the daughter of Dr Robert Shannon.
  • Arthur St Clair who was born in 1766. Became a lawyer.
  • Elizabeth who was born in 1768 who married 1) Captain John Lawrence and 2) Colonel Vance
  • Jane who was born in 1774 and married a Samuel Jervis.
  • Margaret who was born in 1776 thought to have died in 1790
Decendants of the above children reached prominent positions.

An article on General Arthur St Clair will appear in the series about prominent Sinclairs/St Clairs.
