JOHN STUART.—The Rev. Robert Stuart, of Kentucky, in a brief memoir found among his papers after his death, states that his grand-parents came from the north of Ireland and settled on Walker’s Creek, in Borden’s tract. Mr. Stuart was born in 1772 and distinctly remembered his grandmother. He does not mention the names of his grand-parents. They brought with them to America an infant son named John. Another son was born here, but died young, and there were no other children.
We find from old deeds that John Stuart and Robert Stuart were among the early settlers in “Borden’s tract,” and that their lands were contiguous. Of Robert we have no other information. He may have been the father of the John Stuart just mentioned and grandfather of the Rev. Robert Stuart, but the descendants of the latter think the grandfather was named John.
Benjamin Borden, Sr., who died in 1742, sold several tracts of land to John Stuart. One of these was not conveyed till Benjamin
