Submitted by : Charles Stuart

 

WILLIAM H. STUART was born a twin with JOHN D. STUART in January 1800 
in Mecklenberg Co., North Carolina.  He was the son of JAMES STUART 
and MARY MATTHEWS.  They were the third and fourth children born of a 
family of 12.  William came with his family to Alabama in about 1815/1816, 
and settled in the area that would become Wilcox County, near Ackerville.  
William married REBECCA A. CARNES in 1830.  He bought land in south Butler 
County from about 1836 to 1855.  He farmed cotton while raising a family 
that totaled 14 children.  Although he moved his family to Butler County 
in the late 1840s, they were not listed on the federal census of 1850.  
During the Civil War, all 4 of his sons who were old enough to fight went 
off to war for the Confederacy.  William died in April 1865 in Butler 
County, aged 65.  This article is a memorial to an early Alabama pioneer.

General Notes:

1.  It is important to note that the two brothers who brought their 
families to Alabama in 1815/1816 from North Carolina, JAMES STUART 
and WILLIAM HUSTON STUART, both had a son named after themselves, 
and one named after their brother.  This creates some confusion 
when during the 1820s and 1830s, records show JAMES STUART had a 
son named WILLIAM HUSTON STUART, the focus of this article.  JAMES' 
brother WILLIAM HUSTON STUART, who died in 1834 in Wilcox County, 
had a son named WILLIAM HUSTON STUART, Jr., birth year unknown, who 
died in 1837 in Wilcox County.

2.  WILLIAM H. STUART and his family are not listed on either 
U.S. Census for Wilcox or Butler Counties for 1840 or 1850.  Other 
records such as bible records, land records, marriage records and 
excerpts from probate records have enabled researchers to determine 
that they lived in Wilcox County until about 1848, in which they 
moved to Butler County.  Land records show that WILLIAM H. STUART 
had been buying land in south Butler County since 1836.  They settled 
on this land by 1850.

3.  While I have tried to make sure all of this information is as 
accurate as possible, mistakes do occur.  Please contact me with 
corrections or additions.
