Re: STUARTS from Roscommon

       I apologize for not replying to your posting nine years ago. I forgot to advise GenForum when I changed my email address and as time went by I got out of the habit of checking the site.
       
       Henry Stuart/Stewart and Jane Irwin are thought to have been the parents of a son born in 1702-1707 whose name is thought to have been Christopher. By his wife named Jane, this son is thought to have been the father of Bernard Stuart who was born circa 1747 in Cork, Ireland.
       
       Bernard married Mary Pedder on 30 Nov 1772 in Cork, Ireland. He emigrated to America circa 1795. As of 1806, Bernard Stuart lived at Stuartsville, near Newport, Campbell County, Kentucky, USA. Bernard Stuart and Mary Pedder are thought to have been the parents of Christopher P Stuart who was born in 1774.
       
       The use of the words “thought to have been” above is necessary because what I have written is really only a summary of possibilities put forward by a number of people over the years. Whilst those possibilities seem plausible, they are not evidence, and evidence is what we need.
       
       Christopher P Stuart married Elizabeth Grant, daughter of John W Grant and Mary Moseby, on 23 Oct 1801. He died in 1816.
       
       Elizabeth Grant was a granddaughter of William Grant and Elizabeth Boone. As Elizabeth Boone was a sister of Daniel Boone the famous frontiersman, scout, hunter, surveyor and explorer, Elizabeth Grant was a grand-niece of Daniel Boone.
       
       Much has been written about Daniel Boone and his family, but I have not seen anything which mentions into the ancestors of his grand-niece Elizabeth Grant’s husband. You might have better luck than me, but it does not seem that the Bernard Stuart above is the man you were looking for anyway.
