I am researching this Benjamin Franklin Stewart. I believe his father was Benjamin Stewart who married Nancy W. They lived in Tuscaloosa Alabama in the 1830 census. He also bought land in Tuscaloosa Co., with his wife Nancy W. I believe he was born 1780-1790 in North Carolina. He is said to have brothers William, Reuben, and Samuel Stewart.
In the 1850 census in Choctaw Co., Miss, a N. W. Stewart is living with her children and then in 1860 some of these children are also living with Benjamin F. Stewart.
I am trying to find the father of my ancestor, Joshua Van Lew Stewart, born Nov. 1820 in Tuscaloosa Co., Alabama. This older Benjamin Stewart was in Tuscaloosa Co., in 1818. This would put him in Tuscaloosa around the time of Joshua V. Stewart's birth. If you have any info on my stewart I would be grateful.
