David Stewart's 138 acre tract

David Stewart (Stuart) had a tract of 138 acres on which he lived. This was on Stewarts Creek. This land was sold to Frederick Miller in 1825 by David's last executor, his son Reuben Stewart.

Miller later sold 63 acres of this to John Spease in 1837, and prior to that in 1833 he sold 50 acres to John Conrad. This 1833 piece was where David Stewart had actually lived, according to the deed.

I'll map out the details further at a later time, but for now, we know that 113 of the 138 acres on Stewarts Creek passed into the Spease and Conrad families, with the dwelling location passing to John Conrad.

More later...
