    • Source: History of the Republican Party in Ohio, page 783 ...It may be well to mention that the wives of the three brothers - Revs. John, Alexander and Robert - were three sisters and were granddaughters of the Rev. Samuel Doake, D. D., who founded the first institution of learning west of the Alleghanies, at Jonesboro, Washington county, east Tennessee. They were also blood relatives of General Sam Houston, of Texas fame, and of Robert McUen, over whose house in Nashville, Tennessee, the stars and stripes floated during the Rebellion.
