Great Granddaddy, William Warren Stewart lived in Sylacanga, Talladega County, Alabama.  He was in the infantry, and joined June 4, 1861 at Montivallo, Shelby County, Alabama as a private.    He was in Company K, 10th Regiment.  (Nicknamed "The Fort William Rifles;" (men from Jefferson, St. Clair, and Shelby Counties)  He was released on Oath on April 9, 1865 at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia. 

 
In 1865, after he returned to Alabama, he married Carolyn Haskins.  They had several children, one of which was my Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Stewart Mills.  Not sure when they came to Texas, but believe the entire family must have moved to Hubbard at the same time. 

He was living with my Grandmother and Grandfather, Marshall Mills, and family, when he died in 1914 near Hubbard, Hill County, Texas.  He is buried at Cottonwood Cemetery near Hubbard.  Dad was 11 years old at that time.
