I Googled Stewart's Prairie and found this --

Isaac and Sophronia produced eight children of their own: Mary Ann Elizabeth "Jane" Borrer, born 4 April 1858; William Aaron Borrer, born 23 July 1860; California Borrer, born 1 Oct 1863; James Isaac "Ike" Borrer, born 4 April 1867; Susan A. Borrer, born 6 Aug 1869; Elijah Thomas Borrer, born 29 Aug 1871; Safronia K. Borrer, born 9 June 1874; and Texas Borrer, born 9 June 1876. Isaac operated a mercantile store and cotton gin in Stewart's Prairie, Gonzales Co., TX, starting in 1870. When the railroad bypassed Stewart's Prairie, Waelder was established in 1873 and Isaac's store became less profitable and closed in 1885. Isaac Borrer died 29 April 1899 and is buried in the Waelder City Cemetery, Gonzales Co. His wife Sophronia died 29 March 1903 and is buried beside him.

You might want to contact the lady who has this website, Doris Ross Johnston. Maybe she knows more about Stewart's Prairie, since her ancestors were personally involved there.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
