Dee , this is very interesting re your relationship to the Effingham/Bryan Co GA Stewarts......yes re Hiram (b abt 1795 GA) m Francis Bounds in Marion Co MS 1850 was my 3rd gr-grandfather. They're all buried in the Old Stewart Cemetary around there.
I might have told you but we do not match DNA with Gen Daniel Stewart's line.And if the Effingham/Bryan Co GA Stewarts were cousins of Daniel's lineage, they would still have the same DNA.So please give me some detail about your Effingham/Bryan Co Stewarts....I might be barking up the wrong tree (lol)!
Also are you implying/suggesting these Stewarts may have been adopted??Would love to hear more on that....I've been researching all the elder Stewarts of SC, possibly trying to make a connection.
