Subject: [STEWART] Lost son of Hannah Boone and John Stewart ?????
Date: Wed, 4 Aug 2010 12:08:57 EDT

I have researched the possibility that John Stewart and Hannah Boone had a
son for a couple of decades, and only have ONE source where the connection
was reported. That report was erroneous as it stated that Hannah Boone
only had one child......HELLO - I am a 6th generation, my children 7th, my
grandchildren 8th....and many more of her descendants have contacted me. I
descend from Daniel B. Pennington, b. in Montgomery Co., VA when his father,
Richard, was in the Rev. War at Capt. Encoh Osborn's Fort, where several of
the Pennington-Osborn men served. In fact, two of Hannah's daughters by
John Stewart, married Solomon Osborn and John Osborn. Many descendants are
living today.

There were several other Hannah Boone ladies who married others in either
the same time period, or slightly different. Hannah was scalped by Indians
but lived, and carried the scar all her life.

Yes, the source for the correct record is Dr. Lyman Draper's Mss. with
letters from the descendants of Hannah/John Stewart and Hannah/Richard
Pennington. Another source is the book "Hannah Boone and Her Descendants, 1960,
compiled and published by a Boone researcher/descendant (of George Boone
III) Bess L. Hawthorne. Here is the family I have documented, and if anyone
can PROVE otherwise, I will welcome that information.

I believe that the descendants of Hannah BOONE STUART PENNINGTON still
believe that this William STEWART is not the son of John STUART (STEWART) and
Hannah BOONE. If you will write me as I will
forward your letter to Joyce Nell who is a direct descendant.
