I have not been looking at the Stewart family long, however, what I have seen is that there are quite a few Stewart men who ended up in Bowie County Texas with the middle name of Franklin. I have some information on a John Franklin Stewart who married Antonia Jane McIntire in, I believe Tennessee. Is there any information out there already that would tie these various men together? Or does anyone have info on where this family of Stewart's came from in Tennessee? The 1880 census shows NC as the birth of both of John's parents.
