Bottom & Stewart/Stuart
Posted by: Sherry Osburn (ID *****5539) Date: June 09, 2005 at 06:53:58
  of 324

I am looking for information on my husband's grandmothers parents. I have the following information, I would appreciate any help - Belle really does need some parents & siblings.

Descendants of Belle Bottom

Generation No. 1

       1. Belle1 Bottom She married W. George Stewart/Stuart 03 November 1889 in Independence County, Arkansas1.

Notes for Belle Bottom:
David F. Osburn had told this researcher that his grandmother was Belle Starr, and that they used the Stewart spelling but Mary Rosetta's death certificate gives her parents as George Stuart and Belle Bottom. Mary's son (David's brother) William gave the information for the death certificate.

Notes for W. George Stewart/Stuart:
1900 - Arkansas - Indpendence - Saluda Twnshp - page 82A, Dwelling/Family 10/10
Stewart, George        Sept 1872 28 M 11        AR/NC/GA
