"Nathan2 STEWARD (William1), born Jan. 8, 1717, in Stonington, Conn. perhaps died in 1743. Administrator's bond on the estate of Nathan Stewart was filed June 15, 1743 by his father, William Stewart [Probate, E:13]."
Nathan Steward dies unmarried and without issue.
Lucretia STEWART and Dr. John BARTLETT
While researching Dr. John BARTLETT, husband of Lucretia STEWART, I discovered that they may have been married on the island of Nantucket, MA. I thought this was quite interesting for the time period so I pursued it further.
The Vital Records of Nantucket at Ancestry.com lists a lot of Bartlett names of births and marriages of children but since I have accesss to this at NEHGS, I decided to look there for information since I had no idea what PR38 meant for a source. Luckily, this is annotated at NEHGS and says:
"private record, from the William C. Folger genealogical records in the possession of the Nantucket Historical Association (This compilation has been used because of the valuable clues it affords, but its statements should be received with caution, as it is not free from errors. It should also be understood that in many instances the events recorded did not take place in Nantucket, and in a few cases attention has been called to the question of residence.)"
This makes me wonder about the marriage of Lucretia Stewart and a Dr. John Bartlett of Lebanon, CT. It says that she was of Amherst?
Since this could be a different Lucretia and the VR listing of Nantucket's locations may be wrong how can this be verified?
Lucy STEWART, daughter of William STEWART, Jr. and his wife Elizabeth STEVENS was born 30 July 1743 in Stonington, CT. [Barbour Index: Stonington VR Book 3 Page 128]
Lucy married Jared4 (Simeon3, Henry2, Henry1) STEVENS [her cousin].
Jared STEVENS was born 28 Sept 1739 in Stonington, son of Simeon STEVENS and Mercy COATS. [Jared #54 pps. 67-68, STEPHENS-STEVENS Genealogy by Plowden Stevens] Jared was the grandson of Henry STEVENS and his wife Elizabeth FELLOWS and so was Lucy STEWART which makes Jared and Lucy first cousins.
Jared and Lucy lived in Stonington CT, Voluntown, CT, Stephentown, NY and Knox, Albany, NY. Jared was a farmer and possibly was a Revolutionary solider in the 2nd Rensselaer Battalion, Albany County Regiment. [Jared is listed in the DAR Patriot Index and in this database listed below]
