James Stewart (1755 - 1830)

According to The History of Lawrence County 1877 "James Stewart . . .came from Peter's Creek, Allegheny county, Pa., and settled on the farm now owned by Andrew Powell, in 1796 or 1797. He came with his father and mother. His father, John Stewart, served in the Continental army during the Revolutionary war, and fought in the battle of Brandywine, September 11, 1777, the battle resulting in the British army making a triumphant entry into the city of Philadelphia.  John Stewart lived a number of years after the settlement, and died aged over seventy years. James Stewart served as captain in the war of 1812. He was a great hunter, and took extreme delight in the sports of the chase. He had a rifle which he called "Old Danger," which carried a ball weighing nearly an ounce."
