I was born about 1/2 mile from the Stewart-Parker Cemetery, aka South Hebron Cemetery. Most of my family are buried there. I will not be as I am donating my body to be used for whatever it may be needed for. I have been researching my family for over 30 years. Traveling in a Motor Home to do so. I have been to Scotland and found the family farm location there. I hope to complete the Stewart Cemetery online in the next year or so. Contact me if you are interested in the Stewarts or just genealogy.
I am nearing completion of a publication of a direct line of Stewarts from Scotland, 1705 to Illinois and beyond, 2009. It has been a work of nearly five years. TITLE: Stewart, One Of Many. (Perhaps?) (SEE BELOW!!!!!!!!!)
A poem to lighten the Genealogists work day.
Heredity, A Genealogy Poem
I saw a duck the other day, It had the feet of my Aunt Faye. Then it walked, was heading South, It waddled like my Uncle Ralph.
And when it turned, I must propose, Its bill was formed like Aunt Jane's nose. I thought, "Oh, no! It's just my luck, Someday I'll look just like a duck."
I sobbed to Mom about my fears, And she said, "Honey, dry your tears. You look like me, so walk with pride, Those folks are all from Daddy's side."
My book has now been published! The title is:
"STEWART: HEATHER LOST"
For more information about the book see my blog - below:

RE: Thomas Charles Memorial #84877582 HI Bruce. I'm sorry but I didn't understand your original question. Mike's Grandfather was from the second wife. You're correct the name on the tombstone was Ann and I think your correct that her real name was Mary Ann.
RE: Thomas Charles Memorial #84877582 Bruce, Thomas and Anna Charles (Find a grave memorial # 51118138) the tombstone states Anna's last name as Roberts. They are buried in the Strykersville Cemetery, Strykersville, Wyoming Co., NY Pat
RE: Thomas Charles Memorial #84877582 Bruce, Thank you for the transfer. Thomas descended from David and Anna. I may have her last name somewhere but will have to search. I didn't know that Sarah had a twin. Do you have Robert Stewart Charles included in the number of children born. My father-in-law actually located his Charles relatives in Wales and he and my husband visited them several times. Robert S Charles is also buried at Greenwood Cemetery - section Q32 Lot 144. I have a little more on Robert's line if you would like it. Most of that line is now deceased. Pat

Would you consider transfering Thomas to me. Thank you Pat Charles
