I'm in search of any information - parents, siblings, birthdates and places, etc. - regarding William STEWART and his wife, Margaret SLAVENS.They are listed in the 1850 census of Pike Co., IL (microfilm M432-124, Sheet 47, Line 30) as such:
William STEWART 45 M W Farmer KY Margaret " 43 F W KY Eleanor " 17 F W IL Peter " 15 M W IL Robert " 14 M W IL William Jr. " 11 M W IL Julia A. " 7 F W IL John H. " 4 M W IL
I'm a descendant of Peter STEWART through his second wife, Sarah Jane HAMMOND, who had two children, Virgil A. and Margaret Elizabeth "Maggie" STEWART.His first wife was Sarah Ann WARD.She had two known children with Peter.They are David Henry and William W. STEWART.
Peter was born 18 Dec 1834 in Brown Co., IL and died on 5 Nov 1885 in Benton Co., MO when a tree fell on him.This is according to what was written in his bible.The bible was purchased in 1850.
Any assistance provided will be much appreciated.Thanks!
