Jane "Jenny" Stuart (1747-1831)
This week, WeRelate looks at the Person Page of Jane "Jenny" Stuart, daughter of Thomas Stuart (1722-1789) and his wife Elizabeth Moore (1725-1806), of Augusta County, Virginia. Jane Stuart was the subject of a suit in Augusta County, Virginia, "Drennen vs. Stuart's heirs", filed in May 1832, that is extremely useful in helping to prove the identity of her siblings, nephews and nieces. This is a good example of how using records, in this instance a court case, can be used to provide solid evidence to prove relationships within families, where other records may not exist. This Person Page, is a good example of the type of Person Page that you can add to WeRelate for your ancestors. (learn more...)
