My Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, Grandfather was William Stewart. I'm told he was born in Killeshandra, Cavan County in 1775. In 1800, he married Anne(?) in Cavan County. William & Anne had the following children; Elizabeth 1813; Jean 1802; Margaret 1806; George 1819; W.M. 1816; Anne 1809; & John 1821. John is my Family Connection. He (supposedly) left Ireland in 1833, by running away from home after having broken a Vase. He (supposedly) stowed away aboard a Ship & came to America, then stayed with an Uncle (Joseph Stewart) in New York for a while. He later joined the War, married Jane Crangle & settled in the Southwestern part of Tennessee. Any information about the Cavan County Stewarts, especially Williams' family, would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ellen

I have only recently discovered that I am also descended from a William Stewart who married a Hannah Elliott. The family was from Killeshandra, Cavan.

I'd love to chat about possible mutual ancestors and share what I have with you.

Hello Stewarts of County Cavan, Killeshandra. I am headed over to Ireland the end of March.
I have not been able to find anything there even with researchers assisting. IF ANYONE has any information to share about the family that John left behind please let me know. I would love to atleast visit somewhere that I know would have been familiar to our ancestor. Anymore information on his family would be wonderful.

Does anyone know what religion the Crangle's or Stewart's were? I have spoken with researchers and I will need to go to the parish records. Would make the search alot easier if I knew what religion they were.

Chances are pretty good that the Stewarts at least were Presbyterians, or at least Protestants, ie Church of Ireland, but I don't know about the Crangles. If they intermarried, they probably are too. Happily, those records are generally better than the Catholic ones.
