Sergeant Samuel D Stewart survived wounds at Sharpsburg in 1862 and Dandridge, TN in 1864, and was among the handful of men of the Hampton Legion surrendered at Appomattox in 1865. He was one of 44 Stewarts and in-laws of his generations in the Confederate Army. He was a farmer in Pickens County, SC after the war.

This photograph is of the patriarchs of the Stewart family at their first reunion in 1907. He’s #3. The 100th such reunion was held in 2007 and they have continued annually since then in Fountain Inn, SC. The original photograph is from Henry Fulmer and was published in Caroline Smith Sherman and Dianne Gault Bailey’s Fountain Inn (2017).
