South Carolina, USA
Nancy Ann Burt was born in Abbeville, South Carolina about 1789. Her parents are assumed to be John Burt and a Miss Hewett Burt, who were born in York County, Virginia. Her paternal grandparents are Matthew and Anna Hewett Burt also of York County.
Nancy married William John Stewart circa 1808 in Old Ninety-Six District, South Carolina. They lived in Laurens District, South Carolina until after their seventh child was born in 1819, and possibly longer. It is unknown if their eighth child, who was born in 1822, was born in South Carolina or Mississippi. But, their last three children were all born in Monroe County, Mississippi.
In Mississippi, William and Nancy owned land on the Buttahatchie River near Aberdeen. Their parcel of land was located in the SE corner of Monroe County. That land is still owned by some of their descendants today.
Nancy passed away in 1842. She was buried on their own family land in the Stewart Cemetery with no headstone marker.
