Lands Where My Fathers Died: The Stewarts from Scotland to America

eBook (ePub)
(2 Ratings)
Price: $2.99
The Stewart family has been the subject of history, chronicles, dramas, operas, and novels for hundreds of years. Lands Where My Fathers Died accurately recreates that history from 1230 A.D., when the first family member used STEWART as his surname. Here are the High Stewards, founders of Paisley Abbey, the Cradle of the Stewarts, as well as the royal Stewart and Stuart kings and queens. The Stewarts came from medieval Glasgow, were exiled in Northern Ireland, and found their future in the New World, America. When Hugh Stewart gets on a ship in Belfast in 1735 and eventually arrives in Philadelphia a history of intrigue and courage begins. Pioneers, Indians, frontiersmen and women, farmers and merchants, wars and crimes, births and deaths fill these pages. These stories give equal credit to the women who became Stewarts by marriage and shared in the trials and joys of family life on the frontier. These brave men and women are progenitors of today's generations of Stewarts.

    This ebook is an excellent Stewart history. Bought this book because I too am a descendant of Hugh Stewart and Nancy Moore. In addition Hugh's brother Samuel Stewart, Sr., is another one of my ancestors. Also the author's ancestor Sarah Finney Stewart was a sister of my ancestor James Finney (1767-1839). The author begins the book with a nice summary of the Royal Stewarts from 1160 to 1807. This section is recommended reading for anyone with a Stewart in their family tree. Using document research the author traces his family from Thomas Stewart (b. 1590) of Glasgow, Scotland, to County Down, Ireland (1720-1735), and to the Stewarts who lived around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, from 1735 to the late 1800s. The fascinating discussion of the Stewarts from eighteenth century Pennsylvania expands on and nicely complements research by Minnehaha Finney (Finney 1720 by Maurine Struthers, 1996) and William Egle. Also appreciated the comments on foodways. Next, the author follows his family from... More > Pennsylvania to Missouri. Finally, I do wish the author had included his YDNA results in the book.< Less
