SAVAKSAH, GA., IH'.'."*. 



Skwavt jamili^. 

This ancient and honorable family of Stewart, of Liberty 
County, Georgia, arrived in this country at an early day, 
and first landed in North Carolina; thence moved to Dor- 
chester, South Carolina, as early as 1723, and from there 
went to Liberty County, Georgia, in 1752, being among the 
first settlers in that county. 

The chief of this line came from or near Edinburgh, Scot- 
land, before 1723, as that is the date of birth of first child, 
although it is possible that the family came over with its 
father from Scotland. This family had a Coat of Arms, and 
has contributed to the welfare of the country in war and 
peace. Among its members of prominence may be men- 
tioned John Stewart, Sr., who was one of the Selectmen of 
Midway Church in 1760, and who came to Georgia in 1754; 
General Daniel Stewart, a soldier of the Revolutionary 
War, after whom Stewart County in Georgia was named; 
his son, Colonel Daniel Stewart, and Judge Henry J. Stew- 
art of Florida. This family was a prominent one in Geor- 
gia, owing to its standing, services performed and marriage 
alliances, and certainly ranks among the foremost pf Liberty 
County, Georgia.

General Daniel Stewart, son of John Stewart and Susan- 
nah, grandson of John Stewart, Sr. and Jerusha, and great- 
grandson of John and Hannah Stewart, was born December 
20, 1761, and was a gallant soldier of the Revolutionary 
War, and to him the country owes a debt of gratitude which 
it can scarcely ever repay. Stewart County was named after 
General Daniel Stewart.' He married, first, Martha Pen- 
der.November, 1783; he married, second, Susannah Oswald, 
daughter of either Robert and Susannah Oswald, planter 
in South Carolina, or of Joseph Oswald. This name ex- 
tends back into the annals of Carolina to about 1723. and 
they were then found there as planters. In the Disqualify- 
ing Act the name of Joseph Oswald occurs as "planter," and 
both Joseph and Robert Oswald are found as members of 
Midway Church. In 1751 we find in South Carolina, Rob- 
ert Oswald, of Pon-Pon, Colleton County, planter, and 
Susannah -his wife. The name is a good one in Liberty 
Count}', Georgia. 

XoTE.— We find in October, 1772, John Stuart, Councillor, taking 
oath of allegiance to George III; also, Jno. Stnart, Colonel of Artillery in 
Oeor<;ui Brigade of Couiiuentid Line; also in DiMiualifying Act, Joseph 
Oswald, planter; aud in list of those granted land in 17"j"J. Joseph Os- 
w-ald; in Disqualifying Act, Jno. iiJliott, rt-iiel oiaoer; in 17-j4 we find

wife; also James Oswald, s<in of liobert Oswald aud Rachel Oswald, 1740, 
aud Wm. Oawill, all pkuiters, the name dating back to 1723. In Dia- 

Stewart Family. 

The gallant General Daniel Stewart, who so ably assist- 
ed the colonists in obtaining their independence and was 
so frequently in battle with Alarion and Sampler, was born 
October 20, 1761, at New Port, Georgia, and was married, 
first, at Dorchester, South Carolina, February 20. 1783, by 
Rev. Mr. Ellington to Martha Pender, who was born Nov- 
ember 1763, Dorchester, South Carolina. She had one

born October 4, 1791; married, January i, 1024, Eliza

qnalifying Act of British agaiust the colonists, we lii:d Joseph Oswald, 
planter. In Liberty Count}', Georgia, the name ia a irood one and con-

Stewart was either Joseph or hohert Ofwaiil, toimerly ot" Sonth Carolina.

The Roosevelts are an ancient family of New York, of 
Dutch descent. The Robinsons are an old Vir<;inia family 
and descended from the House of Douglas, and the family 
of Sears and Gracie are fine ones. 

This ancient family came to Carolina at an early day and 
embraces amon^' its member'--, manv honorable and emi- 
nent men, and as i.t has been a disputed point as to whether 
the family of Elliott of Liberty Count}', Geor^cia, belonged 
to the. Northern branch who came with Rev. William 
Screven to Carolina, and was a very honorable line, or 
whether they belonged to the Elliotts who came from Corn- 
wall, England, via Bermuda and then to South Carolina 
and known as the South Carolina Elliotts, or whether it 
belonged to some other branch of Elliott, it now seems 
proper to place the family where they rightly belong, hence 
we herewith present adequate proofs to show that the 
Elliotts of Georgia were an otishoot or branch of the South 
Carolina Elliotts. The Northern Elliott line are extinct as 
far as can be learned in male line in South Carolina. 

We here introduce a copy of a deed taken from records 
in Carolina : ''Between John Elliott of Colleton County- 
planter, only son and heir at law of William Elliott, late of 
said county planter, deceased, wiio was only brother v/ho 
left issue surviving him, of Thomas (John) Elliott late of 
said county planter, deceased, and cousin-german by his 
father's side and heir at law to Amarinthia Elliott, (after- 
ward Amari ithia Lowndes) also late deceased, only surviv- 
ing child of said Thomas (John) Elliott, deceased, who was 
only sister and heir at law of John Pendarvis Elliott and Ed- 
mund Elliott, the two only sons and devisees of said Thomas 
(John) Elliott, and vvlio both died in infancy without issue, as 
did also said Amarinthia Lownde3(deceased),and Elizabeth, 
his wife of the one part and John Smith, and whereas the 
Lords proprietors granted to Thomas Elliott (great uncle 
of said John Elliott) lands on Stono River, and said Thomas 
Elliott did by deed poll 8 May, 1723, convey to his nephew 
said Thomas (John) Elliott by the name of Thomas Elliott, 
elder son of his brother, John Elliott, deceased, etc." "This 
Thomas Elliott was Thomas of Long Point, Cooper River, 
ancestors of the Beaufort Elliotst."

Elliott Eamily. /j* 

In 1752 John Elliott sold his land in Carolina and as no 
further records is found of him v/c know ho came to Georgia. 

*CapLain John Elliott came to Liberty County, Georgia, 
April 22, 1754 and in 1755 and 1756 we find him one of the 
selectnijn of Midway Church, and chairman of the board 
in 1757. In a list of members of ^Midway Church we liad 
Elizabeth Elliott. From the records of Alidwav Cli irch 
and other sources the following facts are obtained, and the 
name of his wife an 1 children, together with other circum- 
stances prove tliat John Elliott, planter, and his wife Eliza- 
beth, of Colleton County, South Carolina, came over to 
Georgia in 1754 lifter disposing of his land. He was sou of 
William Elliott, son of John Elliott, brother of Thomas 
Elliott whose son William Elliott married Mary pibbes Barn- 
well and had William Elliott married Phuebe Waight and 
Stephen Elliott married Esther Habersham, and had be- 
sides others : Steplicn Elliott, Bishop of Georgia.
