James Stewart (1783 - 1857)

James Stewart was born in York, Pennsylvania and moved to Adams County Ohio in the early 1800's.  He was married three times. We are derived from his second wife, Phebe Hinton Cox.  He is listed as a sargeant in the war of 1812.  He is also on a list of prisoners of  the War of 1812.  "U.S. Marshal's Returns of Enemy Aliens and Prisoners of War, 1812-15"

James Stewart * (1783 - 1857)
is our 2nd great grandfather

Son of James Stewart

Daughter of Noah Stewart

Son of Mary Lou Ella Stewart and Charles William Lute


  1. Can you tell me if Noah Stewart had a brother named William Peyton Stewart, b 1820 and d. 1899.

  2. Yes, I have William Peyton Stewart as an older brother of Noah Stewart.

  3. Thank you. William would have been my 4 times great grandfather. I love the blog you have done with your family history. Great idea. Thanks for making it available.


  4. I am a descendant of Noah's brother, Herman, and have been trying to resolve a question I have about James. I have been for information that supports the idea that the James who married Phoebe Cox in Ohio came from York County and is the same James Stewart whose first wife was Susan Peden, who died after the birth of her third child. I know that Stewart Clan Magazine concludes they are the same but cannot find the basis for this. Can you help?
