Stewart, Arkansas, Louisiana, Kansas
Sandy Stewart was born in Tn or Arkansas circa 1814, and can be found on the Territorial census for the state in 1838 and 1839, in Lawrence Co., Arkansas. In 1840 Sandy was enumerated in Pulaski Co., Arkansas, living among a small group of other free blacks including: Lucy Goings, R or A King, William King and Willis Gaskins. By 1850 Sandy was living in Morehouse Parish,Louisiana, a few miles south of th Arkansas border. Living with him was his wife, Jane, born aft 1810 and their children: Thomas J., Charles Robert, Cynthia Cassandra, Elizabeth Jane and Amy Frances. Also in the house were three King children: Wilson, John Benjamin and Amanda. There was also an Amy King, born circa 1770 in Virginia, living in the household. Amy was head of household in Lawrence County, Arkansas in 1828 through 1830, she is assumed to be the 55-100 female living in Sandy's house in 1840. It is possible that Amy and Sandy had some connection to the descendants of John Stuart/Stewart who lived in Richmond, Virginia, North Carolina, and died in Robertson County,TN in 1805. Several of his children settled in Arkansas in the same areas where Amy and Sandy lived circa 1816.
Sandy was in the Kansas Territory by 1860, where I lose him. Does anyone connect with this group? I am particularly interested in Jane, Sandy's wife in 1850--believed to have been his second wife.
