I found your listing of Benjamin Stewart or Stuart as a child of Charles Stewart and Philadelphia Simpson. Benjamin is my great-grandfather. I assume you have seen the Madison County, Ky marriages which gives the date of Charles and Philadelphia's marriage. Because of the number of Stuart/Stewarts in Virginia and Kentucky I have had little success in sorting them out until I found your contribution to the world connect at

Do you have any idea when the spelling of the surname was changed or if it was anymore than the usual changes which occured over time. My grand-mother Sarah B. Stuart seems to have always used that spelling but I have found both spellings in documents related to Benjamin.

The date of Benjamin's death - 22 July 1874. He died intestate and apparently not at his home in Pike County, Illinois. He was married to Jemima Jane Williams, daughter of Thompson Williams.

Thank you for contributing the information. Lois Larson
