SAMUEL H. STEWART/KY>IA>MO>AZ/Living Descendants

Classification: Query
I am looking for living descendants of my gg grandfather John Thomas Stewart's brother, Samuel H. Stewart. John was born in Harrison County, KY in 1835 and died in Kent Co, WA in 1900. His parents were William Stewart 1804-? and Mary Jane Rankin 1814- about 1849 both born in KY. One of his brothers was Samuel H. Stewart born January 1842 in Harrison Co, KY. In 1860 Samuel is in Johnson County, MO with his father, his uncle Charles, his father's new wife Mary, and his younger brother Charles.

Samuel fought in the Civil War for the Confederacy in the 2nd Missouri Cavalry and was a prisoner at Pea Ridge. In 1869 he married Virginia Caroline Garrett (1848-1888) in Johnson CO, MO. In 1870 they are in the census in Cass County, MO with no children. In 1880 they are in Jefferson Twp, Johnson Co, MO with three children.

Their children were:
William S. Stewart born 1871, MO
Edward T. Stewart born 1878, MO
N.S. Stewart dtr. born 1875, MO

Over the next few years the family moved to Arizona where Virginia Caroline died in 1888. In the 1900 census Samuel is living on his own as a 58-year-old merchant in Township 17, Pima Co, AZ. William and Edward are living together in Globe, Gila Co, AZ.

Samuel presumably died sometime before the 1910 census as I cannot locate him in this census. In 1910 Edward is married to Emma (?) and still living in Globe, Gila Co, AZ where he continues to reside up until the 1930 census. He had 3 children, Harry E. born about 1912, Catherine about 1914, and William T. about 1916.

I could not find William S. in 1910 but in 1920 and 1930 he is living in Morenci Twp, Greenlee Co, AZ married to Carrie Boyd, and has one son Victor H. born about 1914.

I am not aware of whom Samuel's daughter N.S. Stewart married or Edward's daughter Catherine. I would love to connect with any descendants of the above to share information.
