JOSEPH GASTON BULLOCH . M. D.
JUDGE HENRY J. STEWART.
ROBINSON rUINTINfi HOUSE,
SAVAKSAH, GA., IH'.'."*.
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

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
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-

wife; also James Oswald, s<in of liobert Oswald aud Rachel Oswald, 1740,

The gallant General Daniel Stewart, who so ably assist-

so frequently in battle with Alarion and Sampler, was born
October 20, 1761, at New Port, Georgia, and was married,

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."

further records is found of him v/c know ho came to Georgia.
*CapLain John Elliott came to Liberty County, Georgia,

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
