The Book

"Stewart: Heather Lost"
'The Great Escape'

By Bruce M. Stewart, is now Available

If you'd like a digital copy of the book my late father Bruce Maddox Stewart wrote, 
"STEWART: HEATHER LOST,” please contact me (Joan Stewart Smith) at The book is out of print, but I am still happy to share it digitally.  

It’s a painstakingly sourced in-depth family history about our Stewart line, Robert and Jane (née Wilson) Stewart from Foss, Perthshire, Scotland that first settled in Johnstown, New York in 1786.

Many descendants of their 12 children – Alexander, Catherine,  John Robert, James (my 3G grandfather), Charles, Christian, Jane, Robert Jr., Joseph, Daniel, William and David – have fanned out from upstate New York throughout the United States.  This book doesn't detail these subsequent lines, but it adds context to what came before.  No doubt you can add to the story.

Thanks to my father's book, I've been delighted to hear from a number of distant cousins and descendants of this group of siblings. 

– Joan Stewart Smith, eldest daughter of the late Bruce Maddox Stewart
