For all the Stewart researchers, I have located a copy of an application for entry into sons of the American Revolution which incorporates the Stewart/Gates families to some extent. The dates do not match all my other research, but the document does provide the following document:
Daniel Stewart (dob 1722, died before 1790, died before 1790 - my year of his birth is 1788) is claimed to have been a private in Capt. Edward Bringham's company, Co.. Job Cushing's Reg. His service is listed as 7 days. His company was ordered to be mounted if possible and marched Aug. 21, 1777 to reinforce the Northern Army under the order of General Stark and Gen Lincoln, and proceeded to Hadley. The orders were counterordered. He was listed as enlisted as unmounted.
Per the 1954 application of his g-g-g-g-g-gransdon of Dr. George Ward Glann, who was born May 10, 1913, the line of his descent was:
