Looking for WILLIAM J. STEWARD, b. 1820, TN, d. ??. Married a JULIA ANN PARKER (SETH) Nov. 8, 1865 in SEvier County, Arkansas. She migrated to Whitman County, Washington, in 1885 with all her children but no William. In 1887 she married a JOHN MILTON COFFLAND in Washington. I have reason to belive William and JOhn were civil war buddies and William may have died as a scout for the army at the Battle of Whitebird Canyon against the Nez Perce indians. I am trying to find Williams death date and place, and why JOhn and Julia both moved to Whitman County in the mid 1880's. Why that particular place at that particular time? Any Coffland's out there know anything about William J. Steward? He is my ggf and I would appreciate anything you may have. He was also the father of Julia Bidcar Coffland (nee STEWARD), who married CHARLES SLYVESTER COFFLAND, JOHN'S son.
