Re: STEWARTS from IRELAND to USA
Thanks for looking out for me. My Wm
Stewart was born someplace in Miss. in 1823
and by 1830 his mother who had likely been
widowed moved to Lincoln Co. Tenn.
A number of neighbors had come from
Iredell and Mecklenburg Co. NCto their
area, but can't nail down a connection on
the Stewarts at this time. Wm's mother was
born in Va. in 1788 as per the census and I can't find the name of her husband. Margaret
had as many as 10 children in 1830. Rumor
has it that the husband died of yellow fever
near Mobile. There were 3 waves of yellow fever plague in that area in the 1820's, so that is plausible. Thanks for helping me!!
