Stewarts Defeat land tract, Dunkard Twp.
Posted by: Gordon C. Baker Date: August 11, 2000 at 12:40:34
  of 1583

Need to contact anyone researching James, John, Daniel and Charles Stewart who warranted a tract of land in Dunkard Twp., Greene Co., PA called "Stewarts Defeat" in 1787. Where these four men brothers and sons of James Stewart who was killed by Indians in 1779 at nearby Fort Martin in Monongalia Co., VA (now WV)? There is conflicting stories about these four Stewarts. There is one claim that several were carried off by the Indians in 1779 and taken to Canada where they remained. Yet they warranted Stewarts Defeat in 1787 and patented it in 1793. Daniel Stewart is known to have married Nancy Evans, dau. of John Evans who lived on the farm next to Stewarts Defeat. This Daniel Stewart died in 1802. Need help on this family.
