I am searching for a John Charles Stewart born in IA in June of 1864. He later migrated to NE and married a Minnie Lee (adopted by Josiah Wands Thayer Co. NE) in 1891.
All I know about J.C." Jack" Stewart is that he was born in IA and his parents were from NY. He had at least two brothers Walter and William and two sisters Elizabeth and Bell. Do these sketchy facts ring any bells? A couple of memories from Jack's daughter was that Jack's mother's name was Mary and his father worked on a Miss. River Excursion Boat in the summer and cut ice in the winter.

I picked JC up in the 1900 Census for Hebron, Thayer Co., NE He was married with two children (Roscoe and Mary). In 1902 they went by train to OK and were in the Haskell, Muskogee Co., 1910 Census. They were in Bryan, Olkmulgee Co., OK in 1920 and then I believe JC died and Minnie lived with her daughter who moved to Miami Co., KS in the 30's.

Thanks for your time in looking this over.

John Phillips

Good grief, I can't believe this! My maiden name is Stewart and I grew up in Thayer County, Nebraska. However, I am not related (that I know of) to any Stewarts in Nebraska. My parents moved there from Kansas when I was a baby. Sorry that I am not really being helpful, I just found it quite interesting that I happend to stumble upon this thread while looking for my ancestors! How funny!

Hello Emily, Happy to see someone as excited as you pop up here in the Stewart/Stuart thread. That being said, please offer yourself the opportunity, or Anyone with roots to Kansas to take a look at this site and the German/Russian migration there in the early 19th Century. As it may offer some insight of family's involved, maybe yours, but hardships of the worst kind in Russia of the migrants/descendants who eventually came to America thru Kansas: http://skyways.lib.ks.us/genweb/archives/ethnic/german-russi.... If you have Mormon roots 19th century (Stewart/Stuart), you may have landed in an area of exceptional Heritage.......Jack Stewart Herman
