Facts and Events
- ↑ IGI Record.
- ↑ A land transaction of 1764 shows John Stwarts wife as "Sarah". Another transaction the following year gives his wife as "Mary". His will of 1771 also shows her as "Mary".
From Chalkley's Chronicles:
Page 568.--26th March, 1764. John Stewart and Sarah to Israel Christian, £150, part of lot No. 3 adjoining the lot whereon Wm. Crow now lives, also 1/2 woodland lot No. 8. Livery by a latch of the door of the house on the premises. Delivered: Thomas Madison, March Court, 1773. (Note: this is the last record naming "Sarah", John Stewart's first wife, who must have died between this date and the transaction listed below on 20 August, 1765)
Page 78.--20th August, 1765. John ( ) Stewart and Mary ( ) to Samuel Steel, £50, 148 acres in Borden's tract; corner John Stewart; corner Robert Stewart. Teste: John Stewart, William, Samuel and Jno. Edmiston.
Assuming that these records are for the same John Stewart, Mary died between March 1764 and Augusta 1765.
