Here is what I have on Archibald Stuart, his ancestors and descendants:
Archibald Stuart. The first Archibald Stuart left Londonderry Ireland,
now Northern Ireland in 1726, due to religious persecution. He was of
Scotch-Presbyterian parentage. He spent seven years in western
Pennsylvania. His wife and children joined him in 1738 and the family
moved to Augusta Co. Va. He was prosperous in northwestern Virginia and
acquired large amounts of land, which were divided among his four
Major Alexander Stuart, second son of Archibald Stuart. Major Stuart
was in Colonel Samuel McDowell's regiment during the American
Revolution. During the battle of Guilford Courthouse, McDowell was ill
and Stuart led his regiment in the fight. He had two horses shot from
under him during the battle and was wounded dangerously. The British
captured him & found him to be such a pleasing fellow that at the time
of his exchange they returned his sword, a very unusual occurrence.
Major Stuart was interested in education and helped endow the college
that would become Washington & Lee. Major Stuart would live to be 90.
Judge Alexander Stuart was the youngest son of Major Alexander Stuart.
He lived in Cumberland and Augusta Counties. He was a member of the
Executive Council of State and spent time in Richmond during thos years.
Judge Stuart would move to Illinois and Missouri where he was a United
States Judge, State Circuit Court Judge, and Speaker of the Missouri
Legislature. He later returned to Augusta Co. , where he died in 1832.
Children: Archibald and a girl, maybe more.
