John A. and Nancy (Givens) Stewart came to Texas sometime between 1847 and 1850. The settled in Cass County TX and in 1854 John was the first Mayor of Linden, TX. They are found in the Cass Co. census from 1860 thru 1880, both died in 1883. John was born in NC in 1798, married Nancy (b. 1803)in Roane Co. TN in 1821. (we think Nancy was born in TN)They had 4 sons and 3 daughters. Two sons (William and Rufus) and two daughters (Jane and Mary) show to have been born in TN and one daughter(Sarah "Sally") in MS. The were in Tishomingo Co. TN between approx. 1837 and 1850. John A. Stewart was my husband's GGGGGrandfather and we are searching for any info on his parents and/or siblings. If you can help us it will be greatly appreciated.
