"LUCY MCKISSACK was born Abt. 1784. She married JOHN STEWART, son of WILLIAM STEWART and MARY PENN.
"Notes for LUCY MCKISSACK: John McKissack's 1815 will refers to his daughter as Lucy Stewart. A John Stewart signed receipts for her share of John McKissack Sr's estate. There are many, many John Stewarts in Georgia at this time. Circumstantial evidence indicates that Lucy was the wife of John Stewart, however, and that this John was the son of William and Mary Penn Stewart who moved to Georgia from Virginia. We found evidence that tends to support this:
"Loose paper in estate of John McKissack's 1815 estate in 1823 a "Stewart Penn" signed for John Stewart's (Lucy Stewart's) share of John McKissack's estate. We did not have time to research who or what "Stewart Penn" might be. NOTE: Mary Penn married William Stewart. Gone to Georgia, Stewart. p.164.
"Loose paper in 1815 estate of John McKissack dated Jan. 15, 1821. "Stewart Penn" signs "for John Stuart Legacy.
"The book Gone to Georgia (which we found in the Washington Library in Macon Georgia) lists a John Stewart as the son of William and Mary Penn Stewart, though there is no further information about John mentioned. We saw another family history in the Washington Library in Macon, GA that named Thomas Stewart as the son of William and Mary Penn Stewart (this is confirmed in Gone to Georgia). The 1840 Census of Monroe Co, GA shows a Thomas Stewart and also a John Stewart living in that county. The number of people, as well as their ages, in both men's families coincides with the Thomas and John who are supposed to be the sons of William and Mary Penn Stewart.
"Clarke Co, GA --Deed Book G, p. 248, June 2, 1813. John Stewart of Oglethorpe County, GA sells to Ferdinand Phinizy. Land lying in Clarke Co., GA, formerly Franklin county, on Wolf Creek, being part of 920 acres originally surveyed and granted to Micajah Williamson. The name Phinizy is distinctive. One of John Stewart's cousins married a Jacob Phinizy who moved to Clarke Co., GA (Gone to Georgia.) Also, the location of an 1809 purchase by Archie McKesee is along Wolf Creek within land originally granted to Micajah Williamson. (Ed.: Indeed the Phinizys and the Stewarts were intermarried and very close. See elsewhere in these notes.)
"Clarke Co, GA Deed Book C, p.24, July 5, 1806. A John Stewart sells land in Clarke Co, GA to a John Floyd. NOTE: The brother of John Stewart's father William married Mourning Floyd. (Gone to Georgia).
"Greene Co, GA Deed Book 4, p.300, March 4, 1806. A John Stewart of Oglethorpe Co, GA sells 75 acres to Benjamin Harrison of Greene County, GA.
"Children of LUCY MCKISSACK and JOHN STEWART are:
i. ELIZABETH "BETSY"4 STEWART, b. Abt. 1809; m. (1) THOMAS GOOLSBY; m. (2) GEORGE BRITT. Elizabeth "Betsy" Stewart was living in Sumter County, Georgia in 1850.
ii. THOMAS STEWART, b. Abt. 1812. Thomas was living in Sumter County, Georgia in 1850.
iii. JAMES MADISON STEWART, b. Abt. 1812; d. Abt. 1885, Covington, Alabama.
iv. JOHN F. STEWART, b. Abt. 1813, Georgia; d. July 25, 1890, Rose Hill, Alabama; m. ELIZABETH WHITE, 1832.
v. MARY "POLLY" STEWART.
vi. MATILDA STEWART, b. Abt. 1825; m. MOSES FINCHER. In 1850 Matilda was living in Randolph County, Alabama.
vii. Nancy STEWART, b. Abt. 1816.
viii. ROBERT STEWART, b. Abt. 1818."

"Pat, I hope this email address for you is still valid. I have a question about the burial location of Lucinda McKissack, who was married to John Stewart b. 1784 in Georgia. He is the son of William Stewart and Mary Ann Penn.
I was out today photographing Floyd family headstones and discovered a headstone in the Floyd family plot. The cemetery is the Madison City Cemetery in Georgia. Anywho, the headstone was inscribed, Aunt Cinda. She is buried at the head of Stewart Floyd.
I started researching Lucinda in FAG however, her burial location is cited as the Stevens Family Cemetery. Could you please confirm if she is in your family cemetery?
Thank you for any help you can provide,
