  • Note:
    <br><br><br>Was SUSANNA GRIGSBY the 2nd wife of this WILLIAM STEWART? If so, then sonWILLIAM STEWART (md. MELINDA PRICE) was a son of his father s unknownfirst wife. If WILLIAM Sr. was md. only once, then either his marriagedate is incorrect, or son WILLIAM s dob is incorrect, or there is anunknown story behind WILLIAM Jr., son of WILLIAM Sr. However, son WILLIAMtestified under oath in 1852 that he turned 85 years of age on October28, 1851 placing his year of birth in 1766 instead of 1765, but doesn tsolve the problem of the 1770 marriage record. --------------------------- Transcriptions from the Stewart Clan Magazine are arranged inchronological order by publication date which illustrates how furtherresearch results in new information and revisions to earlierinterpretations. --------------------------- WILLIAM5 STEWART (JAMES4), born about 1756, resided in Fauquier county,VA.(5). He probably settled in Kentucky or Ohio.--- Stewarts of HenryCounty, Kentucky ---C:34 [sic;C:54?], Records of Mrs. L.D.

(5) probaterecords. --------------------------- WILLIAM5 STEWART (JAMES4), born about 1748, married [bond Mar. 25, 1770]SUSANNA GRIGSBY in Fauquier county. This family is difficult to separatefrom that of Rev. WILLIAM STUART of Stafford county,---B:169, who marriedNov. 26, 1750, SARAH FOOTE and whose brother CHARLES married (1) Feb. 23,1749, FRANCES WASHINGTON, (2) in 1752 SUSANNA GRIGSBY and (3) Aug. 6,1754, FRANCES DADE.

Oct. 24, 1796, THOMAS DIGGES, AMBROSE BARNETT, THOMASCHILTON, gentleman, and WILLIAM STEWART and wife SUSANNA deeded to HELENGRIFFIN [13:270]. WILLIAM was mentioned in his sister ELIZABETH s willabout 1806. Among his children was, we surmise: CHARLES 1776; m. Ellen ________; d. _______ 22, 1853, aged 77, Fairfaxco.--- James Stewart & Jane Allen of Fauquier County ---C:129, GeorgeEdson, ed., Stewart Clan Magazine, Tome D, Vol. XVII, No. 3 (September1939):90-92. --------------------------- ELIZABETH5 STEWART (JAMES4), born about 1756, apparently never married.Her brother WILLIAM deeded to her a tract of land in Fauquier county,July 20, 1790. She was mentioned as BETTY STEWART in the will of JAMESCRAIG, July 2, 1792. She deeded land to THOMAS CHILTON, Sep.__, 1806.ELIZABETH s will, probated Jan. 26, 1807, mentioned her brothers andsisters JAMES, CHARLES, WILLIAM, JOHN and ALLEN STEWART, MARY NEVILLE,JANE NORMAN and HELEN GRIFFIN. EDWARD NORMAN was made administrator withher brother JAMES. The appraisal of her estate was made Dec. 27,1806.-- James Stewart & Jane Allen of Fauquier County --C:129, GeorgeEdson, ed., Stewart Clan Magazine, Tome D, Vol. XVII, No. 3 (September1939): 90-92. -------------------------- WILLIAM STEWART gave his consent May 27, 1799, for his daughter SUSANNAto marry DANIEL LIGHT, Harrison county. CHARLES STEWART was security.When CHARLES gave a bond Feb. 27, 1801, for his marriage to MARY PRICE,WILLIAM was a witness to MARY s parents letter of consent. This WILLIAMhad: SUSANNA, c. 1784; mb. May 27, 1799, DANIEL LIGHT: perhaps moved toOhio.--- Stewarts in Harrison County, Kentucky, George Edson, ed.,Stewart Clan Magazine, Tome F, Vol. XXIX, No. 5 (November 1951):171-72. -------------------------- WILLIAM4 STEWART, born about 1730, married SUSAN ________. He lived inWestmoreland county, Virginia.(11). He evidently went to Kentucky, for heseems to have been the WILLIAM STEWART who gave written consent May 27,1799, for his daughter SUSANNA to marry DANIEL LIGHT in Harrisoncounty,---172. He was probably also the father of ANN, who married (bondMar. 2, 1802) THOMAS PRATHER in Mason county. WILLIAM and SUSAN (orSUSANNA) had at least two sons: WILLIAM, Oct. 28, 1765; m. May 17, 1796, MELINDA PRICE: died Oct. 9,1853, Iowa. CHARLES; m. Feb. 11, 1801, MARY PRICE, Harrison county,Ky.--- Charles Stewart and Mary Price, from records owned by Mrs. Ray H.Bagby, 404 Taylor Ave., Pierre, S.D., George Edson, ed., Stewart ClanMagazine, Tome F, Vol. XXIX, No. 7 (January 1952):177. (11) by familytradition -------------------------- WILLIAM5 STEWART, son of JAMES4 and JANE (ALLEN) STEWART of Fauquiercounty, ---D:91, married in Fauquier county (bond Mar. 25, 1770) SUSANNAGRIGSBY. He seems to have been contemporary with WILLIAM STEWART ofWestmoreland county who had a wife SUSANNA and a son WILLIAM, born Oct.28, 1765,---F:177. The authority for the date Oct. 28, 1765, was a familybible, which, in itself, would be sufficient to show that WILLIAM andSUSANNA were married before Mar. 25,1770. The WILLIAM STEWART whose birth date was given as Oct. 28, 1765, inWestmoreland county was married to MALINDA PRICE on May 17, 1796, when hewas 30 years old. There is nothing unusual about that. WILLIAM (whomarried SUSANNA GRIGSBY in 1770) was a resident of Fauquier county fromthe time of his marriage until some time after his father s death in1787---D:91. He and his wife SUSANNA of Fauquier county deeded July 20,1790, to ELIZABETH STEWART (his sister) a tract of land in Fauquiercounty. On Jan. 21, 1795, WILLIAM STEWART and wife SUSANNA of Culpepercounty deeded to FRANCIS S. JONES 286 acres of land in Culpeper county,adjoining Threlkeld. The deed recited that FRANCIS S. JONES, at presentan infant [minor], hath intermarried with ESTHER, the daughter of WILLIAMCOWEN, deceased, of King William county, and in her right becamepossessed of one undivided moiety [a part, portion, or share] in twotracts of land in King William county, which he promised, on Dec. 11,1794, to sell to THOMAS WALKER of King William county for $2066 as soonas he and ESTHER were old enough. RICHARD YOUNG WIGGINTON and WILLIAMBROADUS, both of Culpeper county, where FRANCIS and ESTHER were living,gave WALKER their bond that he would get a deed when the young couplereached the age of 21 years, and Mr. WALKER paid them the $2066. To saveany loss to anybody, WILLIAM STEWART and wife SUSANNA, of the one part,and FRANCIS JONES, of the second part, conveyed to WIGGINTON and BROADUS,of the third part, as trustees, for $2066, 286 acres of land in Culpepercounty, for six years. This deed, recorded in book S, page 132, Culpepercounty, was indexed THOMAS STEWART & wife to FRANCIS S. JONES, and began with the name THOMASSTEWART of Culpeper county and wife SUSANNA, but farther down it said: Therefore WILLIAM STEWART and wife SUSANNA did the conveying of the 286acres. Evidently the man who wrote the document, or the clerk whorecorded it, or whoever may have transcribed the original book to a newone, was not watching his p s and q s. As there was no other reference toa THOMAS STEWART with a wife named SUSANNA, it is likely that WILLIAM wasmeant, and he could hardly have been WILLIAM of Fauquier county, forWILLIAM and his wife SUSANNA, together with THOMAS DIGGS, AMBROSE BARNETTand THOMAS CHILTON, gentlemen, made a deed of land in that county on Oct.24, 1796, to HELEN GRIFFIN, WILLIAM s sister.** ... Now, back to WILLIAM5and SUSANNA (GRIGSBY) STEWART in Fauquier county. The records were notgone into because the aristocratic STUARTs from the Potomac riverplantations took over and overshadowed the STEWARDs and STEWARTs, and itwas assumed that they had their family records engrossed on vellum andbound with gold clasps and would resent any inquiries by poorrelations. Those in the money, after two or three generations, repudiateany blood relationship to anybody, living or dead, who doesn t have morejack than they have. They are prone to pay for a salted pedigree,anyhow, and, genealogically speaking, they are duds. The last sureidentification of our WILLIAM in Fauquier county was in 1806, when hissister ELIZABETH STEWART named him in her will,---D:92. Whatever becameof him, and what children he had, is for us to find out. His brother JOHNsettled in Henry county, Kentucky.--- Stewarts of the Northern Neck ofVirginia, George Edson, ed., Stewart Clan Magazine, Tome G, Vol. 33, No.6 (December 1955):126-28. **Some of the data from Fauquier which we quote are from abstracts sentto this magazine in 1939 by Mrs. J. Estelle King of Beverly Hills,Calif., a painstaking and competent searcher. Other records were gatheredby Prof. and Mrs. L.D. (Lela W.) Prewitt of Fairfield, Iowa, in 1937.
