I am looking for information on John Newton Stewart (born 1847) who was married to Sarah Elizabeth Jane (Sally) Davis (born 1856, died 1946). They were married in Wood, TX on December 25, 1879. I am particularly interested in John’s specific birth date and date of death and information on his parents and/or siblings. Information on Sarah Davis is also appreciated.
