In Reply to: Steward/Stewart & Thomas Families 1870 GA Census by Frances Daniell Hough of 473

Could this be the family:
Feb 5 1879 Laurens Cty Paper
William B H Stewart, son of W R and Nancy A R Stewart, and grandson of William Brantley and Eliza Brantley, was born in Washington County, Sept 30th, 1858, and died on the 8th of Jan, 1879. In a fall from a horse on the 31st of Dec. last, he received injuries which, in spite of the best of nursing and the most skillful surgical and medical attention from Dr J G Carter resulted in death of the day above named.

Jan 15, 1879 Laurens Cty Paper
One day last week, Willie Stewart, about 19 yrs of age, son of Mr Riley Stewart, while breaking a young horse to saddle, was thrown violently to the ground, receiving fatal injuries from which death ensued on last Thursday-two or three days after the fall.

Then looking at the 1860 Washington Cty census there is this family:
410 410 William R Stewart 20
Nancy A R 20
William B H 1
[the family is not on the 1870 Washington census and looking at the 1880 census for Riley and Nancy:either the 1870 ages or the 1880 ages are way off for the family.
William 1870 15; 1880 not found
Neil 1870 14; 1880 17
Charley 1870 12; 1880 16
Mary 1870 11; 1880 14
Vergie 1870 10; 1880 12
Nancy 1870 3/12; 1880 Docia? 10
