Re: Tabitha (Evans) Sawyer
In Response To: Re: Tabitha (Evans) Sawyer ()
Solomon and tabitha sawyers are my great great great great grand parents. My grandpas grandmother was Augusta sawyer (aka Gussie). Augusta sawyer was Adam sawyers daughter. There are NOW pics of Adam sawyer, Augusta sawyer, as well as nat stewart on ancestry(nat stewart was augsuta sawyers husband). while showing my grandpa the pics i found on ancestry, he informed me that NAT stewart CHANGED his name to stewart FROM sawyer! on the death certificate of NAT stewarts mother (margaret stewart) her mother is listed as Lucy SAWYER and father listed as jerry stewart. I belive that i found some where that margaret stewart was born in Wyth VA. I was wondering if ANYBODY have ANY extra info on this matter....in order for nat stewart to have BEEN a sawyer before, would mean that NAT or NATHANIEL stewart and Augusta SAWYER were either brother and sister or cousins or something....Whenever i try to find ANYTHING on my stewart background, i can NEVER find anything past Margaret stewart...and ive been looking for YEARS...last night when my grandpa told me that the name was changed it made ALOT of sense to me because its like they fell outta the sky...well thats all! ANY info will help! thnx guys!! oh yea by the way...to ALL my distant family on here, if you have a ancestry tee or profile, i would love to connect with ya! my tree is public!
