The following transcription was made originally from records written by by Morgan Brown IV and copied from the Brown Family Bible. The Stewart family information was dictated in January 18, 1763 by Patrick Stewart, fomerly of Ledcreich, Balquhidder, Perthshire, Scotland, to his son Charles Stewart. Patrick had migrated with his wife, Elizabeth Menzies, and family from Ledcreich in 1739 for Cape Fear in North Carolina. This information was finally transcribed in "typed" form by his descendant Ewing Thompson of Nashville, Tennesse in the 1890's. In these notes, Morgan Brown who knew Patrick Stewart, attests on March 12, 1826 to the authenticity of the original handwritten document.
