John L. Stuart Family Bible

From Family Findings, Vol. V, No. 1, January 1973, pp. 14-15

            The following Bible records were copied from the old Stuart Bible on August 18, 1971, by Mrs. L. R. Mitchell, 72 Woodhaven Drive, Jackson, Tennessee 38301. At that date the Bible was in the possession of Mrs. Elizabeth Moore Hardister of Vildo, Haywood County, Tennessee, who is the granddaughter of John L. Stuart.

            John L. Stuart was the son of Col. Louis Stuart and Mariah Holt Clark. Louis Stuart was born Feb. 19, 1782, and married Marish Holt Clark, who was born in Virginia September 27, 1800, on October 3, 1815. To this union was born: Arrington, October 16, 1816; Lucy Ann, August 29, 1818; Mary Sue, April 25, 1820; William Wiley, January 16, 1823; John Louis, December 25, 1825; Martha Marish, August 3, 1827; Sally Margaret, February 25, 1829; Benjamin Clark, May 10, 1833; Adelia Louvenia, May 29, 1835; and Alberta Helen, January 4, 1837.

            Col. Louis Stuart was a tailor by trade and traveled from place to place in his work. He was taken ill in Chesterfield County, Virginia, and died November 14, 1837. He served in the War of 1812 as an ensign in Capt. Wm. Parson's Company.

            John Louis Stuart came to Tennessee when a young man with his sister, Lucy Ann, and her husband, David Howe, and all located in Haywood County. After one year John Louis went back to Virginia by boat up the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers to Pittsburg, and by stage to Virginia. After about one year, in which time he settled his family'. business, he brought all the Stuart family by covered wagon to Haywood County. Mrs. Elizabeth Moore Hardister remembers hearing her grandfather tell of the journey crossing the mountains and below seeing th. snow fall.

            The Frontispiece of the old Stuart Bible is missing, but the following was found at the beginning of the New Testament.

Haldeman Family Bible

From Family Findings, Vol. V, No. 2, April 1973, pp. 74-75

The Records taken from the HALDEMAN (Halderman, Holdeman, Holdeman, Holloman, Holliman, Alderman) FAMILY BIBLE were submitted by Mrs. M. H. Pearson, 5201 Lakeside Drive, Port Arthur, Texas 77640. The Old Family Bible was given to Erasmus Oliver Holdeman by his Mother, Mary Oliver Berry, Wife of Thomas Jefferson Holdeman, Son of William Riley Holdeman and Lucinda Killiam, Son of John Haldeman and Elvira McClean (McLean).

Since this is a Bible of John Haldeman and Elvira MoClean who went to Texas in 1839 from Madison County, Tennessee, and settled in Nacogdoches County, Texas, near Melrose, Mrs. Pearson gave this Bible to the East Texas Room of the Stephen F. Austin College Library in Nacogdoches, Texas. Many names cannot be read because of the old walnut ink used long ago which has decayed some names and dates and several pages are torn out or rotted out. On two pages one-half and one-fourth of the page is gone. This Bible must be around 200 years old. The back and front of the Bible are gone as well as the first few pages in front.

All items appearing in CAPITAL LETTERS are entries in the Bible. Other items in small letters are by Mrs. Pearson.
