    ...the data from a Y-DNA and Big Y-DNA test from a confirmed male Stewart cousin on FTDNA and part of the Royal Stewart Family Project, shows the Lazarus Stewart line descended down from Sir John Stewart, Sheriff of Bute who was the illegitimate son or Robert II.Robert II was first in line of the Royal Stewart's.... The Stewart line of Bute is the only recognized Stewart "Clan" by the British government most likely because of the illegitimacy of Sir Robert, Sheriff of Bute....

    ...[ Y-DNA] Kit number 209417 and shows William Pemberton Stewart, Jr. as distant ancestor. My line goes from Lazarus 1683, to David to Lazarus 1770-1850 to William Pemberton Stewart, 1804-1848.

    Another cousin, Richard Stewart, has kit number 14486 going back to Lazarus Stewart on the Stewart or Royal Stewart Family Project also descends down through David Stewart through Thomas Hamilton Stewart. I been in communication with Richard off and on for the last 8 years. He has not done the Big Y-DNA test but the STR's are 65/67 with kit # 209417 which is within the margin for reasonable mutations for 200 years....

    HISTORY: Commemorative Biographical Encyclopedia, Chapter 7, Lazarus Stewart, Dauphin County, PA


    I. LAZARUS STEWART, a native of the north of Ireland, came to
    America in 1729, the same year locating on a tract of land "situate on
    Swahatawro creek," in then Lancaster county. This tract of three
    hundred acres was directed to be surveyed for him by the Proprietaries
    on the 6th of March, 1739. With the aid of two Redemptioners, whose
    passages were paid by him, he built within that and the two years
    following a house and barn, cleared twenty odd acres of arable land and
    planted an orchard. He died about 1744. His farm was a long time in
    dispute owing to the fact that the warrant never having been issued his
    son Lazarus took out a warrant for the same land. After the death of
    the first Lazarus' wife a suit was brought by William Stewart, eldest
    son of John Stewart, for the recovery of his share in his grandfather's
    estate. A distribution was made in 1785, from the record of which in the Orphans' court proceedings we have the foundation of the
    genealogy herewith given. There is no information as to the name or
    the date of death of the first Lazarus Stewart's wife. They may have
    had other children, but the following are the names of all who reached
    mature years:
    2. i. John, b. 1712; m. Frances _____.
    3. ii. Margaret, b. 1714; m. James Stewart.
    4. iii. Margery, b. 1716; m. John Young.
    iv. Lazarus, b. 1718.
    v. Peter, b. in 1720; took up one hundred acres of land
    adjoining Andrew Lykens and William Campbell, in Hanover township,
    surveyed to him on the 17th of September, 1743. Prior to 1760 he
    removed to North Carolina; m., and left issue.
    vi. James, b. 1722; took up one hundred and fifty acres of
    land "adjoining Lazarus Stewart and James Murray on Swahawtawro creek,
    in Hanover township," surveyed to him on the 2d of December, 1738. He
    married and removed to North Carolina with his brother. From Lew Griffin: The James with the 1738 land was actually James Steuart or Stewart, born 1708, son of George Steuart, and nephew of Margaret Steuart, wife of Lazarus. See him elsewhere in this file.
    vii. David, b. 1724; m., and removed with his brothers to North

    THIS is a very interesting — and a very enigmatical — family to study. We have used a miscellaneous lot of "authorities," some fallacious, perhaps, and have pieced together material which makes a good frame-work, wc believe, for future elaboration. Tradition says that the father of Lazarus Stewart [perhaps named Charles] was born in Scotland and that he had twelve children, of whom Lazarus was sixth. Whether the rising of 1715 had anything to do with the fortunes .of this family or not we can only guess. Six sons are said to have come to Pennsylvania about 1729 and located near the junction of the Juniata and Susquehanna rivers, above Harnsburg. Some of the sons removed to other settlements. They were:
    Lazarus 1683 ; settled in Hanover, now in Dauphin county. Pa. ,
    Lazarus Stewart was probably born about 1683, perhaps in Scotland. He must have married about 1709, but his wife's name has not been discovered. Hazy tradition says he fled to Holland and later went to Ireland, embarked from Ireland for New England about 1722, and after a few years moved with his family to Pennsylvania. In 1729 he acquired a tract of land in Hanover township. Lancaster [now Dauphin] county, "situate on Swahatawro Creek." He built a house and barn and cleared twenty acres but evidently secured no warrant for the land from the Penns. In a land description Dec. 2, 1738, his place is mentioned as adjoining. No one knows when he or his wife died. Their son Lazarus took out a warrant Oct. 20, 1743, for a tract of land in Hanover township which undoubtedly included the father's land, and in later years the heirs became involved in a lawsuit over the division of the first Lazarus 's 300-acre homestead. And through affidavits in this suit we know that Lazarus 's children were:
    Margaret; m. James Stewart: parents of Capt. Lazarus
    Margery; m. John Young
    John circa 1712; m. Frances; d. about 1761
    Lazarus; m. Ann
    James circa 1716;
    Peter ; m. ; living in North Carolina in 1784
    David ; m. ; living in North Carolina in 1784

    Stewart Clan Magazine, June 1934, Volume XI, No. 12

    Through the kindly aid of Charles J. Stewart of Oakmont, Pa.,... we have obtained a copy of the records in an old Stewart family Bible, now owned by Joseph Somma,... Pittsburgh, Pa.... It was printed in 1725 and was bought in 1729 by Lazarus Stewart.... It descended to Lazarus Stewart, sheriff of Allegheny county, Pa., who died in 1843, and was last owned by a Stewart when it was the property of the sheriff's granddaughter, Mrs. Amanda (Stewart) Kennedy of Pittsburgh. Mrs. Kennedy was housekeeper for Joseph Somma's father, and about 1915 she gave the treasured book to Joseph, at that time 15 years old, for reading scripture to her. The volume has seen much usage, having been used in the ceremonial at hangings, and many of the inscriptions are faded and almost illegible. The complete inscriptions are:
    Robert Cunningham, his hand and pen [at Kings I, chapter viii]
    Robert Cunningham [at Chronicles I, chapters xvi and xvii]

    Stewart Clan Magazine, March 1958, Volume 35, Number 9, Tome G

    Under this euphonius heading the Stewart Clan Magazine printed an article in the October number, 1928, beginning with a family tradition that "six brothers -- James, Robert, Lazarus, Samuel, Duncan and Stephen Stewart -- all settled at the junction of the Juniata and Susquehanna rivers in Pennsylvania," Lazarus, who was the sixth of twelve children, "was born in Scotland, went to Ireland, thence to Holland and from there he came to New England, and in 1729 he setled at Lanaster, Pa., where he died. His children were Robert and Alexander. Robert was the father of Capt. Lazarus, born in 1734, and of James, who died in 1783, leaving a son Lazarus. Aleander's children were Lieut. Lazarus, George and Mary. Capt. Lazarus, born in 1734, married [lic. Aug. 14, 1765] Martha Espey. He was killed in the massacre of Wyoming, July 3, 1778."

    This account is not reliable. The reputed five brothers of Lazarus have not been identified in any record nor mentioned by any other source, nor is the list of Lazarus's children correct. According to records found since that story was printed Lazarus Stewart married Margaret Steuart, sister of George Steuart of Donegal township, Lancaster county, Pennsylvannia, as indicated by an entry in a minute book of the Pennsylvania board of property: "28th 12 mo. 1728 [Feb 28, 1728-9] George Stewart requests the grant of about 500 acres of land below the fork of Sawatara Creek, 200 for himself and 300 acres for his brother-in-law, Lazerus Stewart."

    Lazarus Stewart died Sep.29,1744, O. S. [old style]. Margaret Stewart died Feb. 12, 1755 N. S. [new style]. These data are from a Bible printed in 1725 and bought by Lazarus Stewart in 1729 and possessed later by his son Lazarus. Lazarus and Margaret had seven children -- John (who married Frances --); Margaret (who married James Steuart); Lazarus; Peter; James; Mary (who married John Young); and David....
