Comment on 3rd Sgt. Elisha Erwin Stewart, Texas Ranger by swetzel

cousin, so nice to hear from you! I didn't realize how interconnected the Stewart and Harman/Harmon lines were, but I shouldn't be surprised, since so many were in those days. Yes, Thomas Napoleon Bonaparte Harman and Mahala Maxey were the parents of John and Winifred Äddie". I have more generations of both family lines, but it will take awhile to dig it up. My mother is Velma Ruth Stewart- the lady of honor in the Ranger ceremony. She is the last of 8 Stewarts, almost 93. She can't see or hear much anymore, but her mind is still in there. Do you live in Texas? It will be great for you and your family to see E.E.'s grave and his Ranger cross - I'm hoping it is still there, we had two retired Rangers dig the hole and pour in a bag of cement to keep it there :-) You can write me at my e-mail address so I can attach some of my documents on the family - It was great to hear from you!

Hello, I am Karen Spalding. I am most certain we are related. I too am a descendant of EE Stewart and Ruth. Beside our relationship through the Stewart line, we are also related through our Harman line as well. Your line from EE Stewart: Winifred Adeline Harman married Thomas E Stewart. My line from EE: John Harman (Winifred’s older brother) married Francis Elizabeth Stewart (Thomas E’s older sister). My father’s mother was Addie Belle Harmon (a daughter of John and Francis (Fanny). Daddy died in 2011 at age 90 and 7 months. Given our Harmon and Stewart connections, it is quite possible that he and your mother crossed paths either as children or sometime during their lives. I would be so very grateful, if I could have copies of the source documents which connect EE Stewart to the Texas Rangers (or information about how I can get copies of the documents). Also, if you or anyone in your family has additional information about the Harmon line (ie. the parents of Winifred Adeline and her brother John), I would love to know what you have. I believe, but cannot substantiate, that their parents were Thomas N.B. Harmon and Mahala Maxey. You have done a wonderful thing by properly marking the grave to commemorate our Texas Ranger ancestor. I look forward to taking my grandchildren to Salado to see the Ranger cross. Thank you so much for caring about our past and for preserving it for our future.

Thanks, my friend. I hope this will be a great year for you and Judy. Give her a hug from me. I'm happy to know at least one person will always read my blathering :-)

i remember the great family Thanksgivings we used to have at my parents' house, fifteen to twenty of us in the dining room and kitchen. Now there are five. I miss the old days.
