    Notes 

    • John House: "Pioneers of Roane Co, WV"
      There was another Charles Stewart, who came from the same section as the Bords, Stewarts, and Seamans. He is said to have been a small, sickly man. The date of his immigration is not known, but it was probably not long after the other family came. He was a relative, some say a brother of Mrs. Virginia Stewart. He made the first improvement where Milt Seaman now lives. He built a cabin and cleared a little "patch" of ground, when he was taken sick and died. This was the first death recorded in the little colony, and his was the first grave in the old Seaman graveyard.

      He was married before coming to Reedy. After his death, his wfie lived a few years in the cabin and tried to maintain her little family of children. The stream where she lived was known as "Widder's Run."

      She pulled up the old stalks in her corn patch, and planed her corn in the earth thus loosened, covering it and tending it with a hoe. Thus, with some assistance from her neighbors, she managed to eke out a scanty existence for a few years.

      She married, as a second husband, a man by the name of McDade, and moved to Parchment.

      One of her sons, William Stewart, married Mary, daughter of Adam Parsons, who lived at Salt Hill. George and John Stewart, late of Parchment, were also sons of "Little Charley". Elisha was the name of the fourth son. Elisha and John married Coons. The George Stewart mentioned above married Massy Stout, and it was his daughters who were the wives of Charley Casto and Henry Brown.
