Rebecca Elizabeth Harper Stewart
My great-grandmother!

This was a remarkable lady - she was the mother of 11 children!
Rebecca Elizabeth Harper married Alfred Merrill Stewart, Jr. They had 11 children, four boys and seven girls:

1. Martha Caroline Stewart, 1872
married Thomas Brownlow Wallace
2. William R Stewart, 1874
married Dora Horn
3. Mary Elizabeth Stewart, 1877
married Robert Andrew Wallace
4. Thomas McGee Stewart,1879
married Minnie Bullman
5. Artie Missy Tennesy Stewart, 1881
married W Raymond Holcomb
6. Arbrie Atria Stewart, 1883
married Ester E Burrow
7. Steven E 'Ross' Stewart, 1886
married #1 Lee Etta Watson
married #2 Clara Bell (signed death certificate)
8. Nora Bell Stewart, 1887
married Herbert G Burrow
9. Sanders Richardson Stewart, 1889
married #1 Mary Taylor
married #2 Lucile Savage
10.Lilllie E Stewart, 1892
married William McLewain
11.Minnie Elma Stewart, 1896
married Joseph Earl Burress

The 1910 Tennessee census shows an 8 year old boy, Ray Stewart, as their son. But I believe he was a grandchild, son of #2 William R Stewart and Dora Horne Stewart. Ray was born 13 Sep 1901. His parents, William and Dora, died a few years after he was born.
