Denise - I have found information on my greatfather and he does have a brother named William. My great-grandfather is James L. Stewart, born in April 1842 in MS. His siblings were: William born 1836; Joseph born 1838, and Artemis (female) born 1848. I found what appears to be this whole group, including their father John, in Milam Co. on the 1880 census. I don't know when they moved to Texas but my great-father joined the CSA, 5th Texas Infantry in 1861. James married Josephine Westbrook (also from MS). They had eight children. Their children were: Minnie, Erie, Almedia, Leonard L.(my grandfather),Alersay, Vivian, James, and Albert. Their father John had a sister named Mary Etta who married Jeremiah Nabours. They also moved to Texas.
Have you come across the named Layfayette in your search for Stewart's? I have seen it several times, and that is my grandfather's middle name (and his son's) and I am wondering if it is his father's (James L.) middle name also. Could be a family name.
My great-grandparents are buried at Pin Oak Cemetary in Milam County. There are quite a few Stewart's in that cemetary and in the Milano Cemetary.
