William Stewart Birth 13 Feb 1813 White River Indiana- Death 1896 Olney, Il., ( Stewart-28643) as son of William S Stewart Birth 14 Feb 1774 Somerset Maryland- Death 1860 Richland, IL. (Stewart-11750)

I can't find any census data for them for 1820-1840 where he would be listed as a son or any birth records. I have even gone to the library and searched Ancestry.com.  Any suggestions on how to confirm this relationship would be appreciated.

Stewart-28643 and Stewart-11750 did not Connect in the Wikitree Connection Finder or in the Relationship Finder.

What is the information that suggests a connection?
The 1880 US Federal Census lists his father as born in Maryland. William S. Stewart was born in Maryland and lived in Richland County the same as William Stewart. William was born in Indiana 1813 around the time William S was living there. I know in Ancestry.com many people have listed William S as his father but they show no documentation. I am trying to find that.

Check out this record I found on the Ancestry mobile app

I found this on William H Stewart that showers James Stewart and Elizabeth as parents. Does this help?

Thank you but I do not think they are the connected. I found an 1880 census record that said William Stewart's father was born in Maryland. And he himself was born in Indiana.
