Jacob LeRoy's second wife was the sister of his first, Cornelia Rutgers, married in 1735, Both girls and LeRoy's business partner Anthony Rutgers were the children of Harman Rutgers; Myers made a mourning ring for the girls' cousin, Anna Panet (Museum of the City of New York, Barquist no. 49). Jacob and Catherine LeRoy were probably also the original owners of a pair of canns by Daniel Christian Fueter, this sale lot 3240, which descended with these candlesticks in the McEvers-Birckhead family.
Only one other set of four candlesticks by Myers is known, made for Catherine Livingston Lawrence and now divided between the Metropolitan Museum and Yale University Art Gallery.
