researching Stewarts to PEI...
« on: Sunday 18 November 18 23:39 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I am just starting out trying to find ancestors. I've gotten as far as my great grandfather, James Stewart 1841-1921 m. Margaret Trowsdale 1861-1945 children Fred, Eliza, Elmira, Isaac, Maude.

The only info I have of my great-great grandfather Alexander Stewart 1808-1886 m. Isabella and had 6 children James, Daniel Don, John, Jane, Margaret, Jessie.


I would love to find more information and go even further back to when these Stewarts came over from Scotland.

Thank you all for researching for me. I have information on James Stewart 1941-1921 and Margaret (Trowsdale) 1861-1945. I am trying to go back one more generation (more if possible). The info I have on their parents are:

Alexander Stewart 1808-10/12/1886 where he was born, died, buried. I would like more info on his wife Isabella. They together would have had James (mentioned above).


Also, I would like info on Margaret Trowsdales 1861-1945 mother Phoebe Wilson 3/17/1841-1906.

Where did you get the information on Alexander's dates, and do you have him in any censuses or other documents?
