The speculation as to who was Charles Stewart's father is on D317 as well. Here's the whole paragraph:

“Charles Stewart signed a bond 1 Oct 1796 in Madison county, KY, to marry Delphia Simpson, and his fellow bondsman was Matthew Brown. Delphia was born 10 Oct 1777, a daughter of Charles and Ann Simpson. This is revealed in a consent in the marriage bond: 'This is to certify that we are both satisfied that Charley Steward should be married to our daughter Delphey Simson. Given under our hands this 1st day of September 1796. Charley Simpson, Ann Simpson. Teste: Saml Arbuckle, Matthew Brown.'

Delphia's sister Peggy married 31 Aug 1796 James Shackelford, and Roger Shackelford married 1 April 1796 Elizabeth Stewart, daughter of Benjamin. This leads to the supposition that Charles Stewart was a son of Benjamin, and this is strengthened by the fact that Charles and Delphia named a son Benjamin, born 20 Sep 1809. They were said to have been married in Virginia, but the record here given shows they were married in Kentucky. The Simpsons were apparently an early Madison County family, as Solomon Simpson married (bond 24 Oct 1792) Sarah Boone, George Boone being his bondsman. James Simpson married 24 Mar 1808 Eleanor Campbell. Charles and his family later resided in Rockcastle county, which is just south of Madison.”
