Hi Robert, This is the first place where I've found anything related to my great-great grandfather Girard Stewart's relatives in MS yet. My grandmother told me that Girard had three brothers: Ben Franklin Stewart, Thomas Lecurgus Stewart and Ruben Marcellus Stewart. I found through Girard's Civil War records that he came from the now extinct town of Bankston, Choctaw Co., MS. Your Benjamin Franklin Stewart must be Girard's brother. I have no more info on Girard's siblings and would desperately love to find out who his parents were and any other info on them. I have lots on Girard's descendants. Please contact me if you have anything I could use..... Debra P.S. Girard was married 1st to Mattie Slaughter. Her mother was said to have been a Stanfield who lived on a MS plantation during the Civil War. Do you have any info on these people ?
