I don't know if there is a connection at this point or not because I have not found positive proof of Joseph's parents. Some family say Joseph Stewart(b)Dec. 25, 1792 was the son of a Joseph Stewart. My Joseph Stewart married the widow lady, Elizabeth (Peterson)Goggans. My line continues through their son, Abner Peterson Stewart(b)April 6, 1820 (5 1/2 months before his father, Joseph Stewart died).
According to family information (not proved in documentation by me)my Joseph Stewart was suppose to be a twin to Polly Stewart. It is said Polly married an Ozlin (don't know if that is a given or surname). Hope this does not add more confusion to the Stewart puzzle.
I also noticed a terrible mistake on my June 6, 2001 entry and posted an "OOPS!!!" reply and corrected my error.
