Forwarded from some old posts.
Does anyone believe that this says that Alexander McWhorter and Mary
Stewart
are the parents of the one I am researching, Sarah McWhorter who married
Jeremiah Carroll.

For those of you who research the Stewart surname, I am going to post
information which I found in an old York County Genealogical Quarterly. The

original was printed in a Stewart Clan Magazine in 1929.

"The Stewart family from which I descended," wrote John Lewis Stewart,
Conyers, GA, on 13 Dec. 1880, "was from Scotland, of the Royal Family, so
called, and emigrated to Ireland some centuries past, and settled at
Londonderry; so handed down to me by my ancestors. (Wilkie's note: around
1650 Oliver Cromwell put many Scots in Ulster, Ireland). My
great-grandfather was twice married. By his first wife his sons were John,
Samuel and Joseph and some daughters. By his second marriage the sons were
William, Archibald and Alexander, all of whom emigrated to the colonies of
the states, before their independence. John Stewart, the eldest, came many
years before the others; he was clerk of coulrt of Lancaster, PA; and all
the
rest, when they came to America, came there, and stayed some years, after
which all except John Stewart and his family, emigrated to York County,
South
Carolina. The name was originally spelled Stuart, and was changed by John
for the better English, to Stewart; he was a fine scholar and the rest of
the
family accepted the manner of spelling Stewart, in place of Stuart, before
the declaration of independence." (Wilkie's note: history gives Mary,
Queen of Scots, credit for the new spelling).

John Lewis Stewart said in the letter quoted above that his
great-grandfather
was married twice and that "his second wife was the widow Calhoun, who by
her
first husband had four sons who came over before Alexander Stewart and
settled in North Carolina, and the great statesman, John C. Calhoun, was a
son of one of the four, so
said. This is the way it was handed down to me, and I have good reason to
accept it as the truth, from all the information I have been able to
acquire
from other sources, and facts obtained by papers and records corroborating
with the above statement."

This article, after some comment on James Calhoun and his wife Catherine
Montgomery, begins the line with a Stuart (first name unknown) and his wife

whom he married in Ireland, name unknown, and who came to Pennsylvania with

their children aboult 1739. The first wife died and this Stuart married,
second, Catherine
(Montgomery) Calhoun, widow of James Calhoun. "They may have removed to
Virginia or North Carolina. According to John L. Stewart his sons were, the

first three having been born in Ireland: John, b. ca 1726, clerk of court,
Lancaster, PA;
Samuel, b.ca 1732, emigrated to York, SC: Joseph, b. ca 1735, emigrated to
York,
SC, William, b. ca 1739, m. Sarah Calhoun, emigrated from York to Xenix, O:

Archibald, b. ca 1742, emigrated to York, SC and remained there: large
family: Alexander, b. ca 1744, m. Elizabeth Barron, York, SC; died in
Morgan
County, GA.
(an unknown person wrote in margin that William was the last of the
children
of the first wife and that there was another child, name unknown, followd
by
Archibald and Alexander, the last three being children of the second wife,
Catherine Montgomery Calhoun.)

part two of Stewart Clan Magazine story of 1929

William Stewart was born in 1739, in County Derry, Ireland. He lived in
South Carolina during the Revolutionary War, says the D.A.R. lineage book,
and he served as a private in Capt. Felix Warley's Company of Scouts, 3rd
Regiment of the South Carolina line, 1779. He married Sarah Calhoun, an aunt

of Hon. John C. Calhoun. (A handwritten notation says that Sarah was also
William's step-sister.) The History of Washington County, Iowa, 1887, says
that as an aged man he removed in 1820 with his sons Samuel and Robert from

York District to Greene County, Ohio, where he died at the age of 93. Mrs.
Kelso (Mrs. Charles M., a descendant) states that he died in 1830. Only two

of his children are mentioned: Samuel, m. Elizabeth Graves:
in Greene County, O., about 1820; Robert, b. Jan. 31, 1789, m. Elizabeth
McElroy, d. Mar. 6, 1867, Greene County, O.

Archibald Stewart has not been traced.

Alexander Stewart was born between 1740 and 1750, most likely in
Pennsylvania, a youngest son. He is said to have come to America when 15
years old, but this may have been his age when he removed from Pennsylvania

to South Carolina and settled in the Catawba Indian reseve in York District

near the Catawba River. He married, about 1774, Elizabeth Barron, eldest
daughter of Archibald and Elizabeth (Ingram) Barron, a family that came from

Pennsylvania with the Stewarts about 1769. She died Oct. 12, 1809, aged 53,

in New (Acquisition?) district, and was buried in Ebenezer Cemetery, two
miles north of Rock Hill, SC. Alexander afterward moved to Morgan County,
GA, where he died. Children born in York district:

Margaret Stewart from Londonderry, Chester County, PA.
James Stewart married Margaret (unknown); James died first... the Widow
Stewart. James and Arthur Stewart were on the list of taxables of
Londonderry
(formerly part of Nottingham) township, Chester County, PA, in 1735. James
Stewart/Stuart of Londonderry township dated his will Feb. 26, 1752, and it
was
proved Apr. 15, 1752. William Stuart and Matthew Young wer named executors
---
James divided his plantation equally between his sons John and Robert, and

provided for his wife Margaret and his minor daughters Agnes, Jean and
Mary.
The widow Margarete evidently rermoved to York County, SC . The will of
Margaret Steward of Camden District, SC undated, "being sick and weak in
body,"
was proved at the April court, 1790, in York County, SC., (formed from the
Camden district in 1785). She named as executor "my beloved son, Alexander

McWhorter"; the witnesses were Moses Ferguson and John Young. She gave to
James
Young's children L20 in Pennsylvania money, and to Alexander McWhorter's
children the same. "Which said money is in the hands of my son-in-law,
James
Young; to her daughter Mary, bed and furnishings". Alexander McWhorter,
named as
executor, was dead in 1790, and the May court, 1793, gave administration
on
Margaret's estate to widow Mary McWhorter, Agnes Young and James Young, Jr.

These three gave bond may 6, 1793, with John Barron and Elijah Fleming as
sureties. John Barron (who married Jane Duncan) was appointed guardian
Oct.
14, 1790, of Mary Duncan, an orphan, and James Young, Sr., was one of the

bondsmen, and July 10, 1793, as administrator (of John Duncan), he sued
Mary
McWhorter and Shadrach Rawls. James Young, Sr., in his will May 10, 1793,
