123. Stewart


  1. Capt. Joseph Stewart (ca. 1791–1864) m. (1) ____; Orange Co., N. Y.
  2. Rosetta Stewart (1809–1886) m. 1828 Reuben Lain (1805–1881); Lehman Twp., Luzerne Co., Pa.


Joseph Stewart’s will and probate, Orange County, New York, Wills, 28:331-5, FHL microfilm 836,317, identifies his children and his widow, Phebe Ann. More information on both of them appears in Joseph Stewart pension file, War of 1812, widow application no. 21274, certificate no. 20524, bounty land warrant 17081-160-50, Military Bounty Land Warrants and Pensions, record group 15 (Washington: National Archives). Her declaration states that she was married to Joseph at Brookfield, or in the town of Goshen, Orange County, New York, on 10 June 1825, and that her maiden name was Phebe A. Doan. Obviously she was not married to Joseph in time to be the mother of his daughter Rosetta.
