Biography

Dr. Jasper Stewart was born December 3, 1829 in the section of Perry County, Kentucky which eventually became Letcher County and finally Knott County, Kentucky. He was the son of William Charles Stewart. Dr. Stewart simultaneously raised two separate families in Knott County, Kentucky in close proximity. While he was married to Nancy (Mullins), and raised a large family with her, he also maintained a relationship with Levisa Ferrell alias Thacker, and also had a large family with her. This relationship was out in the open and both families maintained very close relationships.

Dr. Jasper Stewart made a trip to Texas to see his kin. While there, he took up the practice of medicine. He successfully treated epidemics of Typhoid Fever and Malaria. He maintained a residence in Hindman, Knott County Kentucky. He died on May 3, 1914 in Hindman, Kentucky.[1]

Stewart-20263 and Stewart-3 appear to represent the same person because: The two Jasper Stewart profiles have the same birth and death dates, and have in common their daughters Sallie and Arminta, and a son Ambrose (no WT profile yet) who appears in records for both Stewart-3 and Arminta (Stewart) Triplett (daughter of Stewart-20263). Please merge.
