Descendants of John Stewart


Generation No. 1

1. JOHN1 STEWART1.
Notes for JOHN STEWART:
"John Stewart was an early trader who settled on King's Creek, which flows
southward from King's Mountain, and for a short distance near its confluence
with Broad River forms the western boundary of York County and formerly,
until the creation of Cherokee County in 1897, lay mainly within York County,
SC. John is said to have come from Tennessee about 1756, which was very
early (for that area). Mrs. Francis Marion Stewart of Smyrna, York County,
born in 1866. said that John was a horse trader, and that his son John was born
in 1756 about 12 miles from the home of her son, Charles Enos Stewart, near
Smyrna. John probably went to Tennessee with some of his children."
The above article was in: "The Stewart Clan Magazine" published in
Beatrice, Nebraska in May 1939, Vol. XVI: No. 11, pp 57-58.

Notes for JANE STEWART:
WALKER COUNTY MESSENGER:
Mrs. Jane Manning, wife of Thomas Manning, Esquire, of West Armuchee, died
at her home on the morning of the 11th of April 1885. She was the daughter
of John and Sarah Stewart of York District, SC. She was one of the old
settlers of the valley. She had lived to the age of 78 hears and had been a
consistent member of the Baptist Church near a half century and died in the faith.
One by one they are taken away until there are very few who came from SC in
the early days of this valley. She leaves a grief striken husband, two
children and several grandchildren and numerous friends to mourn her loss, but
this should not be the case, for as we believe she died in the hope of the glory
of God. We ought to rejoice that she has been taken from a state of
paralysis to an eternal rest with her Savior and the bereaved relatives be consoled
with the thought that they will live so that when their dissolution comes,
they too will be given an eternal rest in the home of the good.
